Describe a time you gave advice to others.
You should say:
Who you gave the advice to;
What advice you gave;
Why they needed your advice (whether they took your advice);
And explain how useful the advice was (/the result).
Off the top of my head, the first person I can think of is my co-worker Lisa. We knew each other because of a part-time job I had last summer, where my job responsibility was mainly selling portable power banks. Lisa started the same job three months after I did.
I still remember Lisa’s first day at work; our boss set a target sales number228 that morning, which wasn’t anything new, but after we worked for a whole morning, I noticed Lisa was struggling. She had barely sold anything to customers in the store. I could tell she was worried sick about failing to meet the target. So, I went up to229 her and suggested that she go out and find deals instead of just waiting in the shop for customers. I also taught her some sales tricks, like telling the customers the price of a product right off the bat230 instead of asking them if they are interested. That way the customers have less room to back out of 231 a sale.
Lisa was pretty dedicated and passionate. She took my advice and sold several power banks in the afternoon. Even though that’s not a lot of sales by any stretch of the imagination232, it was still a successful day for a rookie233. She was over the moon that day and even treated me to dinner for her gratitude234. I was just proud that I could help her out; it was a good moment for the both of us.
228 set a target sales number:设定销售目标
229 went up to：走上前去
230 right off the bat:立即，马上
231 back out of:退出，收回
232 by any stretch of the imagination:无论怎么想
234 treated me to dinner for her gratitude:请客答谢我
