this video series're very useful for me to understand what's going on in recruiting new personel in english

In the old-time, recruitment used not to require so many qualifications to a candidate. Perhaps activities at that time were less abundant, and life seemed to be more simple, time ran slower, then to find a job was less competitive as today. In a point of view of an old retired, I find the video interesting, but if I were a candidate, I would be out from the first step!

I find very interesting to understand how recruiting is working. It helps us to prepare better for whatever job interviews.
I never had Business English lessons before, and now I am realizing how much I have lost along the years. I will try to do my best to watch the video lessons regularly and doing exercises and practice.
Thank you very much! It's rare finding a good Business English course!

When I answered the task 1, it was difficult to recall what Marcia said. So I listened to the video again, imagining myself taking the interview. Then I could remember the interview procedure accurately.

This serie is very interesting, because not only we learn specific expressions but it helps us how to prepare ourselves for our job seeking.

This video is interesting because you can see how an interview is done and what questions are asked of the interviewees, it is not very fomal.

it is a very interesant text because the global plain job is fantastic

hi.i'm student, i think that it's a good idea to do interviews to find out what people to hire, also, if i were the interviewer Behavioural job, sinece it is the most efficient in my opinion


This episode about recruitment happens in the developped countries like US or UK . In Poland most employers are looking for employees who will be work under pressure for badly -paid wages . This is sad realities of being employee in Poland. If you live in harsh , dire conditions of Third World like Poland , Moldova, Ukraine or India you will be abused or will have to abuse another human being only for money. This is the real face of globalisation .Of course this episode show how business life like in the international and multicultural companies. And I have watched this series like films about James Bond because I never have have such a opportunity in my life.
