very good!!!!!!!!! she is doing very well and i think they will hire her she is better than Daniel

Wow! Sarah looks wonderful! She is so beautiful so attractive and smiles all the way. You can see the soft-spoken Sarah answering the interviewers with all the required information confidently and full of charisma.
On the contrary, Daniel is totally unpersuasive as you can see in the episode 4. All in all, I think Sarah is the best choice and certainly, she will get the job. Thank you.

I like 'you're hired' very much. This series is really cool, the plot, the performance, and the speech, they are all excellent. Very helpful for learning.
I guess Sarah will get the job.
 

 Its great video.I like it.its useful with me!Thanks a lot British Coucil^^

The video is a nice one. In the interview Sarah nicely answered all the questions and her expression was impressive. But I think she may not get the job. I think Marcia Boardman (may be the chairman) and Philip Hart (CEO) are not happy with her question. The two key policy maker of the company liked to hear about safe marketing of their product, not about ethics or environment.

I agree with you, yes, it's most unlikely that the lovely CEO would be interested in ethics or environment or blah blah blah, haha. But probably he is good at saying something that is a mere formality, anyway, good for language learning. :)
