Thanks for Episode, it was great 
How callees didnt realise that someone is talking with them at the same time.

This series is great.
I think the job candidates we're too informal on the telephone. Human Resources Managers and other recruiters wants serious and determined candidates.
My advice would be not be so informal with business people and career contacts who tries to hire you. The first impression is determinant. At the very "Hello" and up to "Thank you. Have a nice day!" the manager will form an opinion about you which will influence your interview result. People base on the first opinion to adopt the way they approach you.
When a HR Manager calls you, show your professionalism. That's they want to see.
Success!

This episode is great!

Thanks and regards,

IT IS REALLY DIFFICULT FOR ME, I KNOW THAT I NEED TO BE PATIENT

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.
