To speak true I used Lingvo11 to perform it. I would not be able to do this task without it.

Sometimes tasks are given not to test a person, but learn him/her
We can use here 'To be honest', 'To be frank', 'Frankly speaking', 'Truly speaking' along with 'To speak true'

Dear Jenja
As you asked me to describe my weekend at the countryside, I must advice you that I denied your proposal. Hence I believe it would be boring to tell you about picnic I had recently. It was usual event at the river bank the only persons who were present there were my wife with my son and my friend’s family. Besides the weather was terrible even snow fell that day.

I would better tell you more interesting story about the movie which I came across in one of the hard disks….
Once upon the time I was asked to come to the repair shop, there was casual work for me, actually it were hard disk of 80G and ATX PSB. I took them home for repairing. Examining the PSB took me about a minute and then I replaced bad elements. After that I took the HD in my hands. The problem was in controller, the surface of the disk was in order. There was shot cut at the pin of +5V. It is a common problem of HD. The reason of it is a diode which is placed between it and ground.

After repairing the HD I put it to my computer. Connection showed me that disk was alive, so I began to look through the folders of HD. Usually I look for an interesting video like the films, cartoons and so on. At the folder named the “video” I found the file named the “porno”. It was the amateur video with girl about 18 as the star of that film. She was really pretty almost everything of her was ship-shape except her hands. They were too childish even without manicure, although her breast was something. Later I showed that film to my wife. I was surprised because she watched that film from the beginning to the end. I must add there was also one more actor at that film; it was a lad about twenty. Actually he appeared in the end of that film.

As my wife work at the bank she has met a lot of people during her work time. However she had met neither the girl nor the lad. I did not make a copy of that film because I was not interesting in porno and moreover dissemination of that film could be very harmful as to the owner of the disk.

Later I asked about that client at the repair shop. I was told that he was satisfied with my work and was very happy of getting back his disk in working condition.

I'm impressed. Even though, there were mistakes to work on, I guess, it's not a place to correct them, but speak/write fluenty till they fade away on their own.
It's a terrific story, the thing you can repair different electronic facilities like HDD with your own hands, in particular.
Despite you gave a number of details and even used narratives, I quite don't understand your astonishment. What did you expect to find among those films? When I was a sysadm, I faced a lot of attempts to download porno through the provider I worked for. You, perhaps you or your wife made out someone familiar from the video? That's cool...
What really makes me upset or even exasperates me is films of David Linch. Have seen some of those? You must be aware of "Twin Peaks", "Mulholland Dr." and the recent one, I forget the name.
While some of them (like "Mulholland Dr.", for instance) really give an atmosphere of mystique, others just screw my mind like a damned corkscrew. That was at the last time I saw his "work of art". In spite of my promise not to get his films any more, I just missed in the titles his name and proceeded further with the review. By the middle of movie, something suspicious rose in my being, but it was too late to stop watching.
Does anybody here like David Linch's films?

E-commerce is now entering a more stable, mature period after the boom and bust of a few years ago.
I am not sure what you mean by "of a few years ago". Was the length of boom and bust a few years or did boom and bust happen a few years ago?

I guess the latter would be closer to what I meant: there were the boom and bust of E-commerce which had been taking place some, but not many (= a few) years later.

Later after what and how long did it take? It is still unclear for me what you mean by "a few years". Is it a duration of the event or timing? May be you will tell me the exact dates when it started and finished then I will figure out how it should be said.

Well, more about 'of a few years ago'...
Pretend there was a period of time in which booms and bust of e-commerce were happening. Then, we can call it, for instance, the boom of those years or the bust of those years, or altogether these were booms and bust of those years. So we have here a possessive attitude, and 'period of time' acts as an adjective (compare those period's boom, today's bust, etc).
Then, we'd like to emphasis that it was past period of time what we are talking about. So, those years have passed by.
Now, we want to say that it was not long ago when we had those event. So we use 'a few years' or 'little amount of years'.
Altogether, it will be 'boom and bust of few years ago' or in the other words 'recent events that happened 2,3,4, whatever years ago but not very long'
Please consider different articles with the same turn of speech to make it plain:

http://findarticles.com/p/articles/m...11/ai_n9314051
http://answers.google.com/answers/threadview?id=314506
or just google: http://www.google.ru/search?q=%22of+...1&start=0&sa=N

To my mind, this phrase means a period of time in past in which the events were happening from time to time

I checked Google. This phrase does exist. Your explanation is correct. I would also add that the event can happen just once within that timeframe or even can exist continually during whole timeframe. The accent is made on the event itself, that it happened or existed sometime in the past within certain timeframe. The exact timing and duration of the event is unknown or not important for the speaker.

Here are the examples:

Formation of the Solar System of a few billion years ago...
Cooling of the Earth of a few billion years ago... (now it is warming due to grin house effect)

The most important when writing an application is to show that your knowledge and experience respond to the needs of the employer. The rest is less important.

That's what I was talking about - cover letter. Being confident of your abilities, it is worth demonstrating it with the well-prepared cover letter or CV. Otherwise, you could think for ages you are good, but no one wants you to employ.

You missed my point. You have to find out what employer wants from you and cover exactly all his requirements in your resume, nothing more and nothing less. He is not interested in your other abilities. Cover letter is not that important. The person who covers the requirements the best will get the job. You have to look from employer's perspective and understand his agenda. This is the most optimal technic to get the job. Being confident and demonstrating your skills is out of question, but that is not the whole picture.

Nope, I've grasped your idea quite clearly. Perhaps you are right. While the right balance of required and offered skills goes without saying, the issue is open: how to respond to a job ad? I'm talking about a technique to build a bridge. How do you usually interact with an employer when you come across some job opening you're interested in?
I'm absolutely happy with your point - the best fit is enough. It saves time and efforts.

You see there is no balance. You either match criterias or don't get the job. It's simple like that. There are hundreds other people waiting in line.

It's not only matter of matching criterias but also showing your excellence in each required skill. It's like advertising yourself. Think about yourself like a product you want to sell with the best price. What would you do to show that you are better than others?

Well it is not an easy job to rewrite your resume for each position, takes time and concentration. The easier way is to write a kind of universal resume and apply for positions where your skills cover the requirements more closely. But if the position is really good then it is worth rewriting resume.

If you want to find out more about the position then call the agent.

Okay. Let's simplify the issue: How do you respond on a job ad?

Here you can find some good hints.

http://it.seek.com.au/career-resources/index.ascx

Look for "Making key selection criteria easy" section. Covering selection criterias is usually required by goverment organisations. But if you learn this technique then you can successfully use it for any other company.

Basically when an employer reads through a resume he searches the skills and abilities he needs and when it is sorted in order then it is easier for him to make a disigion.

You cannot interact with an employer directly. First you go through an employment agent, then an HR officer. Employers are too busy to answer every call. You can talk to them only when you are invited to an interview. So your resume is an upportunity to be selected and invited.

To go successfully through an interview is another story.
