  1. With Covid you need more than an extra edge to get a great job:

  2. Look at the camera Not interviewers!

    Suggestion: print very small pictures of either family, friends, children, or when available portraits of those interviewing you. Tape these pictures next to camera to promote both encouragement and focus on the objective at hand.

    Make it easier for yourself however you can!

    Even small notes attached near the camera, with key talking points, can aid in a proper delivery to your qualifications.

    Best of luck everyone!!

  3. I was so to little clouded and closed on my career and after watch this i feel like i got some clarity on the front and im really thankful for that!!

  4. Thanks for the video content! Forgive me for chiming in, I would love your opinion. Have you considered – Schallingora Information Investigation Scheme (just google it)? It is an awesome one of a kind product for learning what you need to say to get hired in a job interview without the normal expense. Ive heard some incredible things about it and my cousin at last got amazing results with it.

  5. Great advice. I would have also mentioned to ask relevant questions related to the job description/expectations to the interviewer at the end of the interview. A few good questions to ask:

    1) What are some expectations I can accomplish in the first 3 months?
    2) How is success measured, and how can I exceed expectations?
    3) What are some challenges a person in this role may have to overcome?

    I usually ask these 3 questions at the end. Best of luck everyone!

  6. 5:11 "Articulation"? W.T.F.? I am supposed to perform joint mobility? Back-flips? My ability to join the circus? DID YOU ATTEND A FORMAL ENGLISH CLASS?

  7. Wish me luck, after working in grocery stores and fast food, tomorrow is my interview for an Internship at a Counseling center!! Future Psychologist here, super nervous.

  8. I never ever get the jobs I interview for! I had an interview today and the interviewer seemed thoroughly uninterested and unimpressed with me.

  9. Interviewing for a caregiving position than pays way more than anything I've ever done before. Whoo boy I'm having anxiety. Wish me luck I suppose!

    Edit: I got a call an hour after the interview and they gave me the job! Great video, it helped me a lot.

  10. I'm so nervous, I've got a second interview tomorrow afternoon for serving at the best local Korean Barbecue. I failed at emigrating to Korea and I'd really love to at least get to be part of the culture already instead of having to wait years until I get to move there.

  11. Kudos for the video content! Excuse me for butting in, I would appreciate your initial thoughts. Have you tried – Schallingora Information Investigation Scheme (probably on Google)? It is a smashing one off product for learning what you need to say to get hired in a job interview without the normal expense. Ive heard some extraordinary things about it and my m8 after a lifetime of fighting got cool results with it.

  12. Why American pronounce English word differently which very difficult to understand none native speakers but but British English is easy to Understand why?

  13. Research and prep as much as possible but not to the point of being too polished. Remember once you are in the room you genuinely have a shot at getting that job, use that thought to give you confidence!

  14. Watching this for a supervisory position in the manufacturing industry. I'm putting God first and letting Him lead me all the way!!!
