Thanks Adam. I thought about a new video but I wasn't sure. Thanks again.

Interviewing man and woman seems like not very experienced, because they are rather confused by not proper answers of the candidate. One can think that it is the first case in their carrier, when an interviewed guy makes such a lot of mistakes :)

It's a cool video, I mean that guy made a lot of mistakes, and the worst part was he thought he was doing fine regardless the CEO expression,  anyway it's a video that provides a lot of information of what people shouldn't do in an interview.
Finally I really likes the advices in task 2, for example the mistakes about the cassual clothes sounds likes something I would do in an interiew, so I guess it was the tip of this day.

Marvelous, very funny podcast! You've showed all the behaviour one must avoid attending a job interview. Harder to be more discouraging for an employer looking for a collaborator. Nevertheless Daniel is likeable in is attempt to impress, conceited, no doubt about that, but likeable. At this point of the interview he've well managed to lose his chances to be recruited. All that in no more tan three minutes, good job really!
In a previous episode Marcia B. declared she had two or three good applicants. I'm not sure Marcia B. is the good person at the right place. Such error about a candidate like Daniel is quite amazing. Will the CEO fire Marcia on next episode? I'm impatiently looking forward the episode five!

hi dear friend i am sorry but i think that the CEO cannot fire Marcia because she was just referring on what was written in the CV . And i think Daniel wouldn't be hired because he didn't give real information about his skills on language it seems that he wrote being fluent in Mandarin that is not really the case. To conclude i will say that may be the girl will win. Generally girls are more intelligent than men.. Hope to watch her interview soon Best Wishessssss
