Task 1

Task 2

Business Notes

In the third episode, Marcia Boardman, the HR manager at WebWare, outlines to
the 2 candidates the interview format. There are several possible interview

Structured Interview - Competencies

The employer identifies the competencies (skills, abilities and experience)
required for the role. They design the questions to test whether the
candidate has these competencies. The questions are often phrased, "tell us
about a time when...".

Behavioural job interview (situational job interview)

Behavioural interviews are trying to find out how you would act in certain
situations. The interviewer wants to be able to predict how you would behave
in the role, if they recruited you. So they ask hypothetical questions.
These might be about a time in your past, or asking you to imagine yourself
in a future situation.

Panel Job Interview

Sometimes employers want candidates to be seen by a number of managers or
peer-workers. A panel interview simply means a candidate meets multiple
interviewers at once. They may play the "Good cop / Bad cop" routine, where
one of them is aggressive and another sympathetic, to see how you perform
under stress.

Technical Job Interview

This usually refers to a "hands-on" interview. For example, an engineer
might be expected to do some analysis of an engineering problem; a market
researcher might be asked to analyse some data; a sales person might be
expected to make a mock sales call. This type of interview is designed to
predict how you would perform in the role.

I find these exercises very nice to improove my English level. In the scene, it seems Marcia has a bad feeling with the female candidate, her attitude and the noise disturbancy.

Hello Wael,
When you say 'install', do you mean 'play'? You should just be able to play the video, there's nothing to install. Can you please tell us which web browser you are using and whether you can play other videos on this web site and on other web sites?

   Fortunately, I met a a native speaker of English in my country. In a short time, we became friends and we meet regularly. How can I benefit from this friendship in polishing my speaking skill? Would you tell me of a plan.
Thanks a lot
