Welcome to the Speak English Now Podcast, your resource for practicing your English speaking and listening. You will also learn about lifestyle and culture, language, vocabulary and how to learn English more effectively.
I’m Georgiana; founder of SpeakEnglishPodcast.com. My mission is to help YOU speak English fluently.
In this episode:
- I’ll help you prepare for a Job Interview in English. You’ll meet Jackie, a software developer who wants to get a job in New York, USA.
- Later you’ll practice your grammar with the different Point of View Story.
Let me guess, you’re looking for a job.
And many people are doing the same as you. There’s much competition, but you feel prepared. You have a degree or master or an impressive background, and you are a real professional.
…a call. It’s a company interested in interviewing you! They checked out your CV (résumé), and they want to know you.
Wow! You’re excited! The day of the interview, you prepare yourself: you get a nice haircut, you dress appropriately (not too elegant, not too informal), you are a bit nervous but focused, and the interview begins.
The interview begins…in English.
You didn’t see that coming. All your preparation, degrees, masters, background don’t seem relevant anymore.
During the interview, your confidence goes down. You get nervous; you’re not certain which vocabulary to use, you make silly mistakes…
Here’s the harsh truth: Not having interview skills in English will prevent you from getting the job of your life.
You can miss the opportunity of getting your dream job because good opportunities sometimes happen only once in a lifetime.
You never know when you’ll have an important interview, and you need to be ready.
