Hi everyone
I´m going to have an interview soon, I like this video, I think is useful for me.

Presently, I am seeking a job abroad. English speaking and understanding skills are unarguably an asset for applying for an occupation. Indeed, English stands for the economic and working language in the global world. However, it is now recognized mastering a second foreign language apart from English increases the chance to be hired. The video is quite interesting for many reasons. It teaches the way to build a speech in a constructive manner and how to deliver clear and concise arguments, which is not an easy exercise while being interviewed for a position.

really impressing

yes when i applied to English class in an institute, manager of that institute had an interview with me , and unfortunitly i had bad score on that exam :(
now I am trying to improve my English skills .

Yes, of course. I have done in interview by Enligsh before and in future definitly I have to do it because I always work in international company and practise English everyday, everywhere. I suppose the video is very useful for everyone who post- graduted, fresh student graduted as well as for all are looking for a job. We can base on a way of question, answer from that can give a new idea for your interview basic.

I like so much this lesson and I believe that I might to practice an interview of this kind to better my speaking and my able reaction in other languages.

yes, in the near future, i think i might have to do an interview in english because i want to work in a multinational company.This video help me understand better how can sport develop your abilities like working in a team,discipline,competition,etc.Very useful!
