Linking English Business Club – Session 2

Job Interviews

In this session we watched a video about a young man who goes for a job interview. His attitude is very laid back and he doesn’t seem overly interested in getting the job. After watching the video we discussed his attitude and we came to the conclusion that he should have been a bit more humble. The message that he transmits is that he doesn’t take the job seriously and he only sees it as a stepping stone to another job in the near future. Despite saying that he was better than his colleagues, if he did get the job, he probably wouldn’t pull his weight and would leave all the hard work to others.
