Common English Words Used In Job Interviews ✔Lesson transcript:

Job interviews are super stressful at the best of times. Recently, the job interview challenges are even greater than usual. In today’s English language lesson we have the first in a series of English language learning podcasts on presenting yourself as a job applicant.

In this podcast we are starting with your résumé, and the English vocabulary and phrases used in and around a job application. I don’t think of applying for a job as easy, if you think it is then you probably have the wrong attitude. It’s stressful and much more so if you are going to be using your second language in your new job.

If you are using your second language during your job application, it is even more important to practise what you are going to say. And importantly, be confident with the English words and vocabulary that the interviewer is expecting to hear.

Preparation for an interview using a foreign language is going to take longer. You are going to have to focus on any specialised niche vocabulary required for the job. For example, if you are applying for job in accountancy, then you will need to learn and practise the vocabulary for accountancy, the same for software development or engineering, etc.

Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.

There is a lot of information to cover, so we will start simple and build up to more advanced job interview topics and cover the unique challenges when using English as your second language. Like, how to respond to certain questions "What do you do in your spare time, for fun?" Well if your applying for a creative job you might talk about creative things like painting or gardening, if your applying to manage teams of people, then you might talk about managing people outside of work, maybe helping manage the school sports team or managing charitable events. Make sure you are always presenting relevant added value to the interviewer.
