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.

I like the context of the video.
Yes, I think Sarah will get the job due to her favorable attitudes.

A great example of a good interview preparation.

I think she will have this job.. And the most difficult question for an interview is "Do you have any question for us?", I feel that.. :))

It shows how a candidate should behave in a job interview.

The video show an example of how one should prepare and behave on a job interview. I think Sarah will get the job, because she has made a great impression on the interviewers, showing great desire to work and the presence of the necessary skills.

Sure. Mastering English might not be the only thing that can give us a plus value in the workplace or school/college. We do need other skills, like programming, design, and etc according to the job requirement we apply. Maybe if we major in Math, it should be good if we master Math. But of course, mastering English will absolutely be a plus for a person compared to those we don’t master English.

Probably she might be a good example of a candidate for a job, but I AM a perverse person, and I do think that she is too sober and square. If I were the CEO, I decline to hire her.

It was a good video . yes I think Sarah will get the job because she seem more talent and professional
