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.

Definitely, Sarah gonna get the job, and i deeply looking forward her presentation . She will show something in particular.

I think that, Sarah won the competition.

hi
I think, it's perfect example of a successful interview
This job will be for Sarah, I expect

I think she was very smart dressed and answered all the questions very cleverly and with modest. She will get the job!

Thank you! Definitively Sarah will get the job.

This video presents a job interview. I think that Sarah is well prepared for this conversation. She is behaving professionally. I think that she has a chance to get a job.
