About a month after I joined Facebook, I got a call from Lori Goler,阅读理解答案

About a month after I joined Facebook, I got a call from Lori Goler, a highly regarded senior director of marketing at eBay. She made it clear that this was a business call. “I want to apply to work with you at Facebook,” she said. “Instead of recommending myself, I want to ask you: What is your biggest problem, and how can I solve it?”
My jaw hit the floor. I had hired thousands of people over the previous decade and no one had ever said anything remotely like that. People usually focus on finding the right role for themselves, with the implication that their skills will help the company. Lori put Facebook’s needs front and center. It was a killer approach. I responded, “Recruiting is my biggest problem. And, yes, you can solve it.”
Lori never dreamed she would work in recruiting, but she jumped in. She even agreed to trade earnings for acquiring new skills in a new field. Lori did a great job running recruiting and within months was promoted to her current job, leading People@Facebook.
The most common metaphor for careers is a ladder, but this concept no longer applies to most workers. As of 2010, the average American had eleven jobs from the ages of eighteen to forty-six alone. Lori often quotes Pattie Sellers, who came up with a much better metaphor: “Careers are a jungle gym, not a ladder.”
As Lori describes it, there’s only one way to get to the top of a ladder, but there are many ways to get to the top of a jungle gym. The jungle gym model benefits everyone, but especially women who might be starting careers, switching careers, getting blocked by external barriers, or reentering the workforce after taking time off. The ability to create a unique path with occasional dips, detours (弯路), and even dead ends presents great views of many people, not just those at the top. On a ladder, most climbers are stuck staring at the butt of the person above.
12. Why did Lori make the call?
A. She helped Facebook to solve the biggest problem.
B. She wanted to make a business deal with Facebook.
C. She tried to ask for a pay rise in Facebook.
D. She wanted to become an employee in Facebook.
13. What impressed “me” most?
A. Lori was good at running recruiting.
B. Lori attached great importance to Facebook’s needs.
C. Lori jumped in Facebook with no adequate experience.
D. Lori was skilled in marketing at eBay.
14. What can we infer from the last two paragraphs?
A. Now all people don’t tend to climb the ladder.
B. None on the ladder can enjoy the great views.
C. Jungle gyms offer limited exploration for employees.
D. A pregnant woman, jobless, benefits little from the jungle gyms.
15. What is the best title of the passage?
A. How to get promoted at work.     B. Facebook’s Biggest Problem.
C. Applying for a Job in Facebook.     D. It’s a Jungle Gym, not a Ladder.
