Small talk is social conversation about unimportant things, often between people who do not know each other well. The most common topic of small talk is work.


  • What do you do for a living?

  • I’m a salesperson. I’ve got a temporary job at the local market. It’s part time three days a week. I don’t like this job. It’s stressful and exhausting.


  • What do you do?

  • I work for a finance company as an accountant. I love my job. It’s challenging and that’s why motivating. I have to work quickly and accurately. I use a range of software.


  • I work at the Human Resources department in a large international company. I have to be good at dealing with people and solving problems.


  • How’s your job going? Not bad. I’ve got a promotion to a more responsible position. I can finally afford to buy a car.


  • Are you still working for that catering company?

  • No, I resigned from my post because of a disagreement with my boss. Now I’m out of work.


  • Are you still working for that insurance company?

  • No, didn’t you hear? The company went bankrupt and I was made redundant. At the moment I’m unemployed.


  • Are you still looking for a job?

  • Yes. I have applied for a few places, but they all turned me down.

  • No, I finally got a permanent job.
