Simulated Job Interviews

Wendy . Blog Published 21 May 2013

You've got an interview! And it's in English! "HELP! ¡¡¡Ayúdame!!!"
Calm down! Take a deep breath! You CAN DO this!

You speak English. You've been studying it for years. "But....but.. ay, qué nervios!"


Just a moment. Relax. Get some advice. You'll realize that little things might make a big difference in how you come across and how you feel when the big day comes. A few little pointers and a lot of practice will give you the confidence you need.

Prepare.

Practice. .
Practice some more.

.That interview wasn't so difficult, was it?

-Wendy

In my opinion it is very important to practise doing interviews in order to learn to do it well the day of a real job interview. Practise in the university is the best way to know the difficulties we can find in the future and also to learn to beat them. Like other things, training drives us to achieve the goals.

I think it's important to practise but in my opinion it's more important to be selfconfidence.

I think it´s very important to practise this type of situations because in our future, we must be ready for any job interview.Actually, most of the interviews are in english and we have to dominate this language. For example,it´s very important to practise this interviews in the university because we can ask for help from teachers and they can advise us.

In my opinion, the most important thing is to have self-confidence, you should never try to lie or exaggerate and, before the interview, you should collect some information about the company in which you could soon start working. But of course,it´s also a good idea to practice, especially in English, and to be a little prepared.

I agree with my mates, it`s a very good idea to spend some time practising the way we must behave when we have a job interwiew. Communication, mood, non-verbal communication, there are a lot of things to learn that aren`t taught in class and that we should know to be prepared for this situation.

Really an interview in English can be very strefully for a spanish¡ So the most importan wil be to practique before the interwew, to read the informationa abaut the company and to have self-confidence. Afhter that, take a deep breath and try to be very confindent and comunicate your ideas in a natural way.
