I had to answered some question. The questions that were asked centred on the following:
- General questions.
- Specific questions.
- And questions relating to objective, mission and vision of the organization.

My last job interview was two years ago. I applied for a job as a tour guide. Bufore I was working as a journalist in a newspaper, so the job was absolutely different from my previous one. I was excited.
My new job was supposed to be in another country, so it was online. I spoke English, told about my city like I was making a tour and answered some questions.
The most unexpected question was why I wanted to change the field. I answered sincerely that I wanted to live in a warm country, try myself in a new field and change something in my life.

Hello dear team, as usual I admire you all for your work. Thank you very much.
and now, could you helo me to get this?
Marcia: Is that all clear? Great. So, Daniel, I'll see you at 11 a.m., a week tomorrow. what does "a week tomorrow" mean?
Suppose that the call was today "Tuesday" does that mean the meeting is on Wednesday of next week?

Hello Joel-0505

Yes, that's right -- it's another way of saying 'a week from tomorrow'. Some people also say 'tomorrow week' to mean the same thing. I'd say the most commonly used expression is 'a week from tomorrow'.

All the best

(You'll have already been told you've been shortlisted) could you explain the tensender please
Why it's will have in the future?

Hello fidaasiddig,

Will is a modal verb like should, might and may, and it has several uses, not all of which are connected with the future. In your example will is used to express a prediction (a guess or an expectation) about the present. You could say the same thing in many other ways. For example:

I expect that you have already been told...

You've probably already been told...

I imagine that you've already been told...

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.
