    Listen to a conversation between a student and a counselor.

    Hi, I'm Tina Morley.

    Oh, Tina. Yeah, good to meet you.You told me on the phone that you're looking for a part-time position?

    Yeah. My roommate works at the dining hall and she heard a part-time job might be opening up there for this new semester, so I was hoping...

    There was one... but that got filled a couple days ago.Oh no, really?Thing is... I've gotta do something to pay for expenses.And, well... I-I'm not afraid of hard work.

    I guess not!Y'see, I always have to check the class schedules of potential applicants... to make sure they're full-time students in good standing.And... your schedule this past semester... I mean, everything from computer science to African history to zoology and physics...How do you manage with such a heavy class load?

    Pretty well, actually.If I do get a job, of course, I may have to cut back to a more normal schedule, but... y'know, there are so many great subjects to learn about.

    Ah, a generalist.

    Yeah. It's gonna be hard for me to pick just one thing to specialize in.

    Say, that gives me an idea.Uh, you're pretty comfortable on a computer, right? with learning new software applications?

    Sure, I'm pretty good at that. Why?

    Well, last week I got a call from the folks over at the Visualization Project.They want to add a couple part-timers to their staff.

    The Visualization Project?

    Yes. They help professors from all different departments turn information into something their students can see.You know, instead of just writing on a blackboard, more and more professors want to project information onto a screen.And... how do I say this... some professors are really good in their own subject areas, but when it comes to computers, well...

    I get the picture.So they use the Visualization Project to create... what... like, graphs of different sorts?

    Right. Graphs of economic trends, for instance, or population growth.And sometimes dynamic maps- maps that change on screen to show, for instance, how trade ebbed and flowed over the centuries along various routes between China and the Mediterranean.

    Wow, that'd be interesting.

    Yeah, and that's just what they do for classroom lectures...A project staffer might also be asked to help professors put together some of their research data and model that visually.They claim that putting their research in a map, for example, or a moving image, helps them see connections... new relationships in data on, say, animal migration patterns that they might miss if they're just looking at numbers on a piece of paper...

    That's terrific.Uh, what about working hours?

    They're pretty flexible.Staffers can go in to work day or night...They just have to make sure it's all done by the time the professor needs it.So, shall I give you the number to call to get in touch with these people?

    Oh, would you?To think I came in just hoping to get something in the dining hall!

  • 旁白:请听一段学生和顾问之间的对话。

    学生:你好,我是Tina Molly。

    雇员:Tina,你好,很高兴见到你!你在电话里告诉我说你在找兼职对吗?

    是的。我的室友在食堂工作,她听说这个新学期可能会有一份兼职工作,所以我希望……

    雇员:是有一个,但是几天前就招满了。噢不,真的吗问题是我需要通过兼职赚点钱。嗯,我不怕辛苦。

    雇员:我也认为你不怕辛苦。你看,我需要查看申请兼职的学生的课表,来确定他们是品学兼优的候选人。而你上学期的课表嘛,我想说的是,你修了巨量的课,有计算机的课、非洲历史的课、动物学的课、物理学的课。你是怎么做到能修这么多的课程的?

    学生:实际上,我学的很好!当然如果我找到了兼职的话,我可能需要退掉一些课,回归正常课量的课表了,但是,你知道,很多课都很棒,值得一学。

    雇员:哇,你是个多面手。

    学生:是的!让我专修一门课是很困难的。

    雇员:嗯,这启发了我。你计算机很好对吗?擅长学新的软件应用?

    学生:是的!我确实擅长这个。所以?

    雇员:是这样,上周视觉化项目的人给我打了个电话。他们想招几个兼职。

    学生:视觉化项目?

    雇员:是的,他们要帮助各个部门的教授把一些信息转化成学生可以看懂的东西。你知道,除了板书,越来越多的教授想把信息展示在屏幕上。我该怎么解释呢?一些教授在自己擅长领域很出色,但是他们的计算机技术就……

    学生:我了解了。所以他们想让视觉化项目组做什么呢?不同种类的图表之类的东西?

    雇员:举个例子,经济走势图或者人口走势图。有时候会需要动态的图,比如说展示中国和地中海地区每条路线的交易量在几个世纪间是怎么下滑的。

    学生:哇,那很有意思嘛。

    雇员:是的!而且这只是要为课堂讲授做的工作。你可能还会被要求帮教授们收集一些研究数据并做成可视化模型。他们会要求把调查成果做成图,或者是可以展示某些关系的动态图,还有例如他们仅仅看纸上的数据时可能会忽略动物迁徙新规律。

    好棒啊!那工作时间的要求呢?

    雇员:时间非常灵活的。你白天晚上都可以来工作。只要保证在教授要求的时间点之前做完就行。所以我要给你电话联系他们吗?

    学生:哇,你居然帮我找了一份这么好的兼职。我一开始仅仅是想找个在餐厅打工的活儿而已。

    选项分析:对话整体在讲学生想做兼职,后面一大部分在讲有关于电脑的兼职,故选项D正确。

    选项ABC干不符
