Hello Babatunde,

We are very pleased to hear this! Thanks for letting us know and keep up the good work.

All the best,


The LearnEnglish Team

Till today I have got the 2 real and serious interviews, first in 2018 and the second one in 2019. Both of them were applying as a teacher to the online schools. Before my first interview I had been sent the instructions on how to get prepared, because actually that was not a usual interview - I must have prepared a lesson and led it. So, I read instructions and conditional, then I prepared the lesson, both interviews were successful.

There are several activities postulants could do to ensure good performance in an interview.
Personally I undertake the followings

Practising by recording myself - Improve intonation, gestures and posture.
Revising company website - get a review m whose will be your potential new employer.
planning your commute - head off to be rushing

And above all, feeling relaxed and knowledging the interviewer is another individual like you.

I can prepare for an interview by following these steps below:
- Getting detailed information about the interview process such as date, venue, time and duration.
- Obtaining information on modalities and personnel to meet at the venue.
- Having insights about the firm's vision, mission and objective.
- Preparation to answer questions pertaining to job history, experience, roles, skills in relation to how it can improves prospect on the new job.

I will probably make sure of preparing a good CV, and having the complete knowledge about the company, and being certain about whether I could manage to be in the work or not .

Being called for a job interview it means you would have successfully passed through the first Resume selection.
In order to get a notice at the first step, I suggest revising your Cv and preparing a tailor-made motivation letter for the specific job you are applying for.
Indeed, HR would probably receive hundreds for applications and it is important he will be thrilled by your presentation.
Then, when he will demand your presence for a job meeting it is important to impress a positive impact in his/her mind.
The first impression is the most important one during a job selection.
How you look like, your appearance, your confidence in speaking, soft skills and motivations would determine the success of your meeting.
Finally, it's important both of the parts, the employer and the employee get agreed on the payment and benefits of the contract.

Hello, Mr. Diego.
