Sarah goes for an interview with Marcia and Philip.


Do the Preparation task first. Then watch the video. Next go to Task and do the activity. If you need help, you can read the transcript at any time.

Task 1

Comprehension task

Read the statements and decide if they are true or false.


Task 2

Business Notes

In the interview Sarah is asked some difficult questions, but these are quite typical, standard interview questions. Here are a few more:

Why do you want to work for us?

Give us an example of a time when you did not meet your goals or objectives?

Give us an example of a situation where you faced conflict or difficult communication problems and how did you deal with it?

Where do you see yourself in 5 years time?

What would your current manager say are your strengths?

What do you think are your weaknesses?

Why should we give you the job?

Do you prefer working in a team or on your own?

What is the first thing you would change, if you were to start working here?

Vocabulary: Describing jobs

Fill in the gaps in the sentences with the adjectives in the box.






I think Sarah gives a very good impression; she is quite confident, positive and willing to improve her skills. I think she'll get that job.

Hello Kirk
Thank you for explaining
Have a nice times

I dont know which is more professional in English ( she will get the job ,she will take the job or she will have the job)

Hello Khaled,

'get', 'take' and 'have' are correct but mean different things. 'get' means she wins a competition for the job, whereas 'take' means she wins the competition and chooses the job (perhaps over other jobs). 'have' describes the job she will be doing.

All the best,
The LearnEnglish Team

Sure Sarah will take the job , she seems more professional ,less proud in her self

the video is not quite good that it was interupted some times.
i thik Sarash will get the job as she is curious and talent candidate.

In my opinion, the organization that was held was very good, since I try to take things well and without any problem, taking into account that this interview was very formal, and will continue being until it is concluded in person. It takes into account much the presentation, the CV, among many other things.

It was a good video and it gave me insight about real interview and what i should avoid to succeed

I made my first (from episode 1) two mistakes with the adjectives "motivating" and "stimiluating". In my opinion the context of the sentences above is the best explanation of the difference between them.
