Arsenio’s ESL Podcast: Life Skills – Succeeding in Interviews

Here is a HUGEEEEE podcast that will help a many of you out there who are possibly going in for jobs in the future. Interviews, a controversial topic, is what we’ll be focusing on today. We need to do some speaking, as well as ironing out the details of dos and don’ts for a job interview.

  1. Have you ever had an interview? If so, when and what for?
  2. When and why do you expect to be interviewed in the future?
  3. How well-prepared for an interview do you think you are right now? Why?
  • Don’t lie.
  • Do turn off your mobile.
  • Do find out where the venue is beforehand, how to get there and how long it takes.
  • Don’t read from notes or your CB.
  • Do find out what kind of interview it will be beforehand so you can prepare.
  • Do prepare answers for the main questions – for example, ‘why do you want the job?’
  • Do quote real examples of when you’ve used certain skills.
  • Don’t ask about money.
  • Don’t ask for feedback on your performance at the interview.
  • Don’t be late.
  • Do dress smartly, look bright and attentive and speak clearly and coherently.
  • Don’t use slang words.
  • DON’T criticize former colleagues.

Remember, videos, reading, more interview tips, things to avoid and a real life-task is on my PATREON!
