I prepare for my English language job interview just as I would for any other interview. This may include researching the organisation's history and mission, determining the travel time needed to promptly arrive at my interview location, organising my materials and choosing an outfit.

When I have been invited for a interview about one job, I find out about the company, it's always good to get information about her , we need to know the exactly adrees and how long will take a taxi to arrive from your place until to the company. it's also important to prepare all documents required at least two days before.

First of all, I prepare my CV, references and certificates, prepare my clothes for the interview as the appearance plays a great role as well, collect information about the host company.

When I give other people job in my company, I must to look live is this people because I must look live attitude about this people. I believe if people have good attitude, this people can confidence and loyalty for my company and me.

I don't prepare for a interview because I give some jobs the people. If I will be going other people with my job, I prepare a very presentation. My presentation include a lot of real information and statistic and graphics. So I don't go without prepare.

Hi,
I can prepare for a job interview after receiving a message from a firm which had my job application, through the following ways:
- Having a target position in the firm.
- Get my CV ready.
- Get my reference letter ready.
- Get my ID card ready.
- Getting to know about the firm mission and vision.
- Getting clear information about the interview date, time, venue and other details.
- Meeting up with the appointed day of interview. Thanks.

in my opinion, to prepare the best for a job interview we should find out more about that job and try to answer some question which you think it can be asked by them. in addition, you have to prepare your ID and CV carefully. Before going to interview, you should choose a suitable and polite clothes. A neat hair can help you more confident.

Hello and thank you for this great opportunity to develop reading skill I have one question in task one I think there is a wrong information The question What can Grace do if she wants to change the interview date? the correct answer is call me in 12 not 10 september

Hello Hashim Ali

When Ms Green says 'if you wish to reschedule, please call me on 555-1234 or email me by 12 September', 'by 12 September' means before 12 September or perhaps before the end of 12 September.

Of all the options in that question, only the first two are before the end of 12 September. But the first option says Ms Yang should go to reception to request a change -- this is not in line with Ms Green's email, which says she should call or email (not go to reception).

All the best

Hi everybody,
Firstly, we must know what we should say interview. it is important for they. We must dress perfect clothes. We should do hair and cut our beard. We look like stars because a lot of people wait to interview after from us. We must be carefull in every respect if we want to this jop or position. Unfortunately these aren't enough for take the job. Our counrty is system different. Yes of course ı said up everything is correct. We must but here is not enough. First of all you must know speacial person there. It can be your family or close friends. We call reference but I think it is name favoritisim.

Best regards
