Sarah did a great interview. I can't spot any negative point in her meeting. She had right outfit, right behavior and also she remained calm and natural.
She has shown curiosity doing some questions about the sustainable policies adopted by company, this has triggered the appreciation of Marcia and the CEO.
At the and she has confirmed her skills, without exaggerating them.

Sarah has a very polite and respectuous behaviour but still she is smiley and remains natural. She is well dressed as she would expected to be if meeting customers. She clearly and accurately answer the questions giving the feeling of a professional and reliable person. She shows empathy and ability to listen and discuss whenever issues occured.
The reason why she wants to move on is receivable for the interviewers.
The only point to improve would be perhaps to find a question more open-ended in order that it does not embarrass the employer in case it can not answer.

She was good
she will have this job for sure

Sarah is the perfect candidate for the job. She's very nice, knows hot to manage an interview by explaining her best practices in the past, all real. She's interested all the time in the offer, and when the intervierwers ask her if she has questions, she asks for the environment politics of the company.

Opposite the other candidate, Sarah is my favourite to get the job.

The good point about Sarah is that she has insights to what is required, but the bad points is that she don't know how to handle a challenging deal.

The interviewee in the video is confident and knows what she wants and what she says, her objectives are clearly described, her arguments are strong and convincing, that means she has perfectly prepared for the interview. She seems to be a promising candidate.
Through this candidate 's dialogue, we can learn how to answer and express in such a situation.

Sarah is a much maturer person than I thought. I thought she was careless when she did not ask Marcia to call back later in a noisy place. In the interview, she was able to attract the interviewers dressing and behaving properly, confirming her ability with examples.
