Hi there and a warm welcome to everyone. This is episode 86 of The Art of Business English. In today’s episode we are going to look at some aspects of socialising in English, more specifically, how to talk about your job.

If you have ever found yourself in a social situation, you will probably know that it is very common for someone to ask you about your job or what you “do”. If you’re a non-native English speaker, sometimes this question can be a little overwhelming. Sometimes, you may not really know how to answer it, or in fact you may mis-interpret the question all together. So, if you want to know how to talk confidently about your job, then keep reading.

So, let’s take a look at what we are going to be covering in today’s episode.

Firstly, we will look at what are  some ways in which people commonly ask people about their job. Secondly, we will cover why your job title is so important and some typical job titles. Finally, we will look at how you can introduce and describe your work and position.

Let’s get started.
