Business Notes

In the third episode, Marcia Boardman, the HR manager at WebWare, outlines to
the 2 candidates the interview format. There are several possible interview
formats:

Structured Interview - Competencies

The employer identifies the competencies (skills, abilities and experience)
required for the role. They design the questions to test whether the
candidate has these competencies. The questions are often phrased, "tell us
about a time when...".

Behavioural job interview (situational job interview)

Behavioural interviews are trying to find out how you would act in certain
situations. The interviewer wants to be able to predict how you would behave
in the role, if they recruited you. So they ask hypothetical questions.
These might be about a time in your past, or asking you to imagine yourself
in a future situation.

Panel Job Interview

Sometimes employers want candidates to be seen by a number of managers or
peer-workers. A panel interview simply means a candidate meets multiple
interviewers at once. They may play the "Good cop / Bad cop" routine, where
one of them is aggressive and another sympathetic, to see how you perform
under stress.

Technical Job Interview

This usually refers to a "hands-on" interview. For example, an engineer
might be expected to do some analysis of an engineering problem; a market
researcher might be asked to analyse some data; a sales person might be
expected to make a mock sales call. This type of interview is designed to
predict how you would perform in the role.

This episode is very interesting. But, as a matter of fact, it is very difficult especialy a pronounciation for me.

The conversationis are between the HR Marcia and the candidates who are being invited to an interview.  The information about a job interview is very useful. The techniques in making response and raising questions are well presented, too. It helps me a lot in spoken English and in job hunting. Thank you very much indeed!

Hello, everyone
I liked the episode. In some places it was hard to understand what they were talking about, but in general I enjoyed the chalenge and exercises. As well as, I found the information about different types of interviews useful and topical.
Thank you, for the episode.

This episode is very interesting, because shows in how many ways person could be interviewed.

a little awkward to be informal

This episode talk about the recruitment that happend in the Europe. As in Cambodia most of employers are looking for an employees who has an experience with the role which they are seeking for and also pay low salary ranking for those students who has no experience and they just post graduated BBA Degree.
I just make a research and i found this website sound good to me to see how the bussiness like for international country.
