I prepare for my English language job interview just as I would for any other interview. This may include researching the organisation's history and mission, determining the travel time needed to promptly arrive at my interview location, organising my materials and choosing an outfit.

First of all, I prepare my CV, references and certificates, prepare my clothes for the interview as the appearance plays a great role as well, collect information about the host company.

I don't prepare for a interview because I give some jobs the people. If I will be going other people with my job, I prepare a very presentation. My presentation include a lot of real information and statistic and graphics. So I don't go without prepare.

Hi, I can prepare for a job interview after receiving a message from a firm which had my job application, through the following ways: - Having a target position in the firm. - Get my CV ready. - Get my reference letter ready. - Get my ID card ready. - Getting to know about the firm mission and vision. - Getting clear information about the interview date, time, venue and other details. - Meeting up with the appointed day of interview. Thanks.

in my opinion, to prepare the best for a job interview we should find out more about that job and try to answer some question which you think it can be asked by them. in addition, you have to prepare your ID and CV carefully. Before going to interview, you should choose a suitable and polite clothes. A neat hair can help you more confident.

Hello Hashim Ali

When Ms Green says 'if you wish to reschedule, please call me on 555-1234 or email me by 12 September', 'by 12 September' means before 12 September or perhaps before the end of 12 September.

Of all the options in that question, only the first two are before the end of 12 September. But the first option says Ms Yang should go to reception to request a change -- this is not in line with Ms Green's email, which says she should call or email (not go to reception).

All the best
