  • Hello, my name is Jared.

  • Today we're going to look at tips for job interviews in English.

  • First, practice.

  • You only get a few minutes to impress the interview panel, so make sure that you practice the answers to common interview questions.

  • Ask a friend to play the role of interviewer.

  • Answer the questions and get some feedback from your friend.

  • Try again until you are happy with your responses.

  • Next, make sure that you research the company you are applying to.

  • If you know someone who already works there, maybe you can ask them about working for the company.

  • If you don't know anyone, you can do some online research to find out what kind of company they are.

  • Also, research the latest developments in the relevant business area.

  • This sort of information will really impress the interviewers and also show that you have initiative.

  • Our next tip is to look the part.

  • Appearances do matter in a job interview.

  • It is important that you look smart and professional.

  • Make sure your clothes are appropriate.

  • First appearances are important.

  • Make sure that you smile and make eye contact with the interviewers.

  • Don't forget to speak clearly and not too fast.

  • Give yourself time to think about your responses.

  • Lastly, don't forget to ask questions, too.

  • This shows that you're genuinely interested in the position and the company.

  • Do ask questions about professional development and career prospects, for example.

  • If you're hoping to use English for a work, a Cambridge English business certificate could help you succeed.
