Actors have their understudies fill in when they're sick, injured, or otherwise unavailable. Well, think of today's topic as a sort of understudy for corporate executives!
ACTING (director) 臨時の、代理の（取締役代行）
- In job titles, the word acting - as in “acting director” - means temporary. Someone with such a title is doing a job while the usual person is away or until someone permanent is found.
- 肩書きについて acting と言うと、一時的な、という意味になります。この肩書きをもつ人は、通常、ある仕事をする人が不在のとき、あるいは、適任者が見つかるまでの間、その仕事をします。
- Emiko was acting president for eight months until a new president was appointed.
- Because George was only the acting director, he didn't feel comfortable making big changes in the department.
- We'd like you to fill in as Acting General Counsel while Carl is recovering.
IMPORTANT! The WordMaster will be away all next week for his annual Obon holiday. As a consequence, there will be no @Work Challenge Test tomorrow, but rather one more edition to wrap up this week's set on “Careers”. See you then!
