English Conversation 3: Fay asks Jerry for advice on how to succeed at a job interview in English
Fay: Hi Jerry. I'm thinking of applying for a job with a multinational companybut I'm worried about having an interview in English. Can you give me any good tips?

Jerry: Hmmm. That's a tough one. I guess the first thing is to try to make a good impression. We often say "you never get a second chance to make a first impression". You really need to get off to a good start.

Fay: That sounds like good advice. Maybe I could sing and dance for themha ha ha! Then they'd really be impressed! But seriously how do I make a good first impression?

Jerry: To begin with you should firmly shake the interviewer's hand while greeting him or her with a smile. Be sure to keep eye contact especially when listening to the interviewer.

Fay: Ah "body language" is really important isn't it?

Jerry: Yes it is. The second thing is to have confidence. You get confidence from being prepared. You should learn a little bit about the company before the interview. Find out what they do how long they've been in businesswhat their business motto is that kind of thing. You should also anticipate possible questions and think about how you will answer.

Fay: Should I memorize my answers beforehand?

Jerry: No! Definitely not! That sounds very mechanical. You should be natural when you speak. Just think about how you want to answer and choose the right words at the time of the interview. That way you can use the interviewer's own words in your answer which shows you've been listening. Then you're sure to make a good impression.

Fay: I never thought about that before. You're really smart Jerry! But what should I do if I can't remember an English word when I'm answering a question?

Jerry: In that case you have to paraphrase. In other words you have to explain what you want to say. For example if you forget the word "manufacturing" you can say "making a product" instead. Or instead of "statistics" you could say "using many big numbers to describe something".

Fay: That's very helpful Jerry. Thanks so much. Ah one more thing. Should I ask about the salary during the interview?

Jerry: No either let them bring up the topic of money or else wait for a second interview. If you prepare well make a good first impression have confidence and use English naturally you're almost certain to be interviewed again. Good luck!
