Congratulations! You have applied for a job and now you are getting ready for that important job interview. Your English is excellent and you are looking forward to making a good impression on your future (hopefully) boss. Now, you need to make sure that you also have the right type of English for that job interview. The job interview in Englishcontains specific questions and appropriate answers. It also requires a certain flexibility in your usage of tenses. This feature provides tips on job interview questions and answers in English. When you walk in the room the very first impression you make on the interviewer can have a great influence on the rest of the interview. It is important that you introduce yourself, shake hands, and arefriendly. The first question is often a "breaking the ice" (establish a rapport) type of question. Don't be surprised if the interviewer asks you something like: • • • How are you today? Did you have any trouble finding us? What do you think of the weather lately?

Don't be surprised by the friendly tone. The interviewer wants to put you at ease (help you relax). Answer the question without goinginto too much detail. The language you use should be simple but polite, for example; How are you today? GOOD I'm fine thank you, and you? I'm well thank you. BAD So, so OK Not so well What is most important? Talking about your experience and credentials (qualifications) is the most important part of any job interview. Your qualifications include your education from High School on and any specialtraining you may have done in the past. Your experience is any work that you have done that is directly or indirectly related to the job you are applying for. Education Remember that your education took place in the past.

The tenses you should useare the following: When talking about current employment be careful to use the present perfect or present perfect continuous. This signals that you are still performing these tasks at your current job, for example: Smith and Co. have employed me for the last 3 years as a salesperson. I have been creating customer contacts for 6months. Etc. When talking about past employers use the past tenses tosignal that you are no longer working for that company, for example: I was employed by Jackson's from 1989 to 1992 as a clerk.
