It shows how a candidate should behave in a job interview.

The video show an example of how one should prepare and behave on a job interview. I think Sarah will get the job, because she has made a great impression on the interviewers, showing great desire to work and the presence of the necessary skills.

Sure. Mastering English might not be the only thing that can give us a plus value in the workplace or school/college. We do need other skills, like programming, design, and etc according to the job requirement we apply. Maybe if we major in Math, it should be good if we master Math. But of course, mastering English will absolutely be a plus for a person compared to those we don’t master English.

Probably she might be a good example of a candidate for a job, but I AM a perverse person, and I do think that she is too sober and square. If I were the CEO, I decline to hire her.

It was a good video . yes I think Sarah will get the job because she seem more talent and professional

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,

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