Hi, claimed Gina
Welcome to the Oxford English Video Series!
In this lesson, we will learn how to answer questions about English work interviews.
Have you ever had a work interview in English?
If English is not your first language or mother, this can give you an answer to the interview questions
Little difficulty and stress of experience
Anyway, we have some simple and effective tips so you can give better answers on
Interview Questions Work in a natural, clear and sound manner in English
You will discover these tips and hints during this lesson!
You will usually find eight common questions in all job interviews as well as four answer techniques you can use
You will see how to answer common questions in business interviews using the techniques that we will tailor to you.
We will show you that.
Let's start by mentioning the eight common questions in job interviews.
Question: Tell me a little about you and about yourself
Question: Where do you find yourself five years from now?
Question: What are your weaknesses and strength?
Question: What is your style of leadership and power?
Question: Can you tell me about the time you showed (represented) the role of ....?
For example, can you tell me about a time when you played the role of a strong leader (such as not claiming, but reciting and accepting)
Or can you tell me about a time when you have represented an example of excellent customer service
Question: Tell me about the time or time you dealt with a difficult situation at work
Question: Why would you like this work?
Question: Why should we hire you?
Question: What is the meaning of brevity or abbreviation?
This means that you do not exaggerate the use of words.
If you speak briefly, you will get to the idea and destination directly without adding anything unnecessary
For your answer.
Let us consider two questions in this paragraph:
Question: Tell me about yourself
The question: Where do you see yourself five years from now.
These are very common questions in job interviews and have wide horizons and great freedom to answer as well
Open-ended questions can be serious.
You know why?
Because it can be soaked in the so-called (roll and turn) or chatter
It means talking a lot without saying much
Gossip will not give the person who is interviewing a good impression!
Let's start by highlighting an example of an answer to the question. Tell me a little about yourself
Well, I was born in a small village in northern Italy, where I went there to school as well.
I studied engineering at the university and then .....
So, after I graduated .....
I mean, I did my master's degree first, but then worked for a small company in my hometown (my hometown)
For years, it has been really enjoyable.
Well, we can stop here.
Do you think this answer is good and appropriate?
Not very good answer in fact.
Is not it good?
Below we will mention three things that a candidate for a job opportunity should avoid.
One: The filter adds a lot of unnecessary information
Two: Do not use the filter during the entire sentence.
Three: The candidate does not have specific orientation or tendencies
If you do these things, your answers to those questions will be long and confused (unfocused)
What is the solution ?
We should be more focused.
but how ?
First, avoid unnecessary details.
Do not give your entire career and history, interviewers can get these details from your CV
They wanted it.
Second, use a complete and clear camel with a beginning and a completely end.
This means that you will need to think ahead as you speak
Third, think about what you will highlight in your answer, put it first.
This will give your answer a specific direction and a specific tendency.
Here are some examples:
I've always liked design and things about building and construction, so I suppose it's natural that
Become an engineer.
I worked in many jobs and worked in a variety of companies, and there worked a lot, but now
I am ready for a new challenge.
What do you think?
Are you better?
Is actually much better.
Let's look at the beginning.
Immediately, the interviewer recognizes the characteristic of the person (likes design and construction matters)
And associate it with his engineering career.
The person answering the interview is brief: no need for unnecessary details, and also
There is a clear end to the answer.
What about the second question?
Here's a possible answer:
There are many things I can do.
I want to have, as you know, some kind of progress ...
What I mean is that I do not just want to do the same things that I do now.
I want to go ahead with my profession, for example ....
I certainly want to see myself in a better position than I am now.
Is it a good answer?
Is it bad?
Well, it's not scary, but it was possible to make it much better.
Hungarian to interview Jether.
She did not make her point of view and idea clear, did not use full sentences, and used in the use of words.
On unclear and unnecessary ideas.
Here's a better answer:
I do not know exactly, but most importantly I will continue to learn and develop
My experience in my profession.
I am the kind of person who needs new challenges to stay focused and dominant.
And maybe never create your own business, because it's something you've always wanted
Achieve at the point (stage) what in my life.
That was much more concise.
An answer from the interviewer was the beginning and end, and the use of words was not excessive.
So, what can you do to make your answers more concise?
The best way to practice is to register for yourself and you speak.
You can register yourself and answer these questions.
And then listen to yourself.
Try to find a sentence you did not finish, or words that did not add anything
Then, try again.
Keep practicing until your answer is clear and focused.
Later, to look at a second point will make your answers clearer and more powerful:
It means the words and phrases that appear to your ears to what you are aiming for and what your destination is.
For example, words (for example) are an example of a meaningful language.
When I say, for example, you will know that I am about to give you an example.
Yes, but it is also very important.
Without using the semantic language, long answers can lose their meaning and become difficult to understand and follow.
You will see an answer to the previous questions in this section of the video:
What are your strengths and weaknesses?
What is your style of driving?
Let's look at the answers to the first question.
I am very good at working with others.
In my previous career, I have always tried to encourage my colleagues and create a good atmosphere.
I think I may be a little indifferent at times.
I'm not that kind of person who focuses on details.
I am very calm, and keep my nerves in the most stressful situations.
It's not a bad answer, but it can be difficult to recognize.
Moves from the interview between the sentences quickly and repeatedly (frequent jump)
Adding a semantic language can make a big difference.
Let's see how. Note that the content is exactly the same.
We did not change the basic ideas of the interviewer at all.
However, the answer is now clearer and easier to understand.
Using semantic language in this way can make a big difference!
Let's look at the second question in this section.
View an Answer No tags were found.
I'm a manager of the Avoider type to really intervene.
If one of my team members does a project, I will monitor things, but I do not need them
Contribute to any details.
I am a very friendly person.
I assure my team that they can present their problems and questions at any time.
I want to lead them in the foreground and in practice.
If everyone is working late for a specific appointment, I'll be sure to be there with them.
Now, look at a little of the semantic language you can use in this answer.
Now, you have a job to do!
I want you to stop the video and put these semantic sentences in the answer.
You just saw it.
Come on, stop the video and do it now!
To look at the answers:
How are you?
Were you able to use the semantic language?
Remember, the semantic language may seem very simple, but do not forget it and use it as well.
Using the semantic language will make your answers more explicit and easy to understand.
Now, look at another way to make your answers stronger, clearer, and
We'll see answers to these two questions in this section of the video.
Will you tell me about the time / time when you were -----?
Tell me about the time / time you dealt with a difficult situation at work.
These questions often need longer answers than their predecessors.
With longer answers, it is important that your answers have a clear and well structured pattern.
Without that, the meaning you mean can be lost!
There is a method you can use, called the PMN method.
It means position, task, work, outcome.
So, start your answer by describing the situation: what was the situation, what was it
Should you do it?
Then, you talk about what you really did, and what the end result was.
Let's set an example together.
Can you tell me about the time you were an example of excellent customer service?
Let us use the PMN method.
On one occasion when the customer did not reach his request, we did not know
What exactly happened to the request?
The customer seemed unsatisfied and had to try to solve the problem.
I arranged things to send an alternative to the request, believing that we could find out what happened to the previous request
In the end, the customer was happy, and I was able to solve this problem quickly and simply.
Do you see how the previous method enabled you to formulate clear, firm answers?
Let's give another example.
Think about the second question.
Tell me about the time you dealt with a difficult situation at work.
This time, you'll have to try!
Stop the video and answer this question.
Your answer should be four sentences long.
Follow the MAIN method, one sentence for each part.
How was that ?
Have you found it easy to put your own answer?
Let's look at one way you can answer that question.
Once, three days before the delivery date, we realized that two of our teams were using
As the project manager, I had to find a way to deal with this problem without causing any delay.
I spoke with the leaders of the two teams and we reached a plan for one of the two teams aiming to change
The principle of their work to use a new formula, with the help of some workers from other departments.
It was very close and we were able to finish everything on time.
And Magda, you can see the road in practice:
If you can combine the way you use the semantic language you learned in the second section of the video, you will
Be sure to express yourself clearly in English, even in longer, more complex answers.
In conclusion, let's look at another tip you can apply to dazzle the person you're interviewing and to increase
Your chances of getting that job!
You will learn about reflection and how it can help you.
What does reflection mean?
Means using some sentences and expressions used by the person who is talking to you
For example, if someone asks you who is interviewing you:
How do you think your values and beliefs will fit our culture?
You can start by saying:
I think my values are well suited to your company's culture for two reasons.
Reflection has several benefits.
First, keep your answers focused within the idea.
Using the same words and phrases, your answers will be more objective.
More importantly, the reflection of the interviewer shows that you are listening and interested
For questions and company.
Reflection is very strong.
We unconsciously apply reflection to people when we love or respect them.
Using the reflection consciously will help you get a better impression.
You must start by looking for the company you will be offering.
How do they describe themselves?
What are the topics they address on their posts or in their advertisements?
Also, read the job ad well.
Pay attention to the words they use to describe the candidate they are looking for.
Use those words in your answers.
Let us consider this question:
Why would you like this post?
Imagine if you go to a company that describes itself as "creative" and "forward-looking".
In the Labor Declaration, they said they wanted someone "creative" and "flexible".
Here's a good answer:
Creative is something important to me, and I've always wanted to work in an environment
Where I can create and solve my own problems and challenges.
I feel that your company will continue to evolve in the future, and I have an idea
Contributing to that development.
The candidate did not use the four words, but she referred to the four ideas.
For example, instead of looking to the future, I talked about the company's evolution
the future .
In this way, they have been shown to be in line with the company's principles and values.
Let's put another example.
Imagine if you go to a company that describes itself as "imposing respect"
She speaks proudly about her long history.
In the business announcement, they said they wanted someone with "great communication skills"
And "passion for helping others".
During the interview, they ask:
Why should we hire you?
Here's a good answer, using the principle of reflection.
I believe that great customer service starts with good communication, which is a strength point
For me .
I also think that in the field of customer service should be attentive to what you do (master your business).
I'm sure to help others and I think you will find me a respectable person
And an active member of the team that can match the established traditions of your company
Again, the candidate did not necessarily use the words directly, but he mentioned
The four ideas are all.
Beware when you use the reflection, you will not want your talk and style to seem like an automatic!
For this reason you should sometimes change the words and sentences slightly, rather than repeating
The latter repeatedly and repeatedly
Now, you have seen four effective techniques you can use to give better answers to interview questions
Working in English.
Remember: Be a moderator, use a semantic language, use a method to formulate longer, stronger answers,
And the use of reflection of words and sentences and sentences.
Hopefully that was so helpful.
Good luck if you are coming for an interview soon!
