  1. Hello Christina. I am very disappointed that your lessons are in French. But you do really a good job. Thanks a lot.

    1. Hi Aïcha ! Just these videos, the lessons in the Get The Job Course will be 99.99% in English! I’m trying something different this time, so I appreciate your feedback! It helps me to know if people prefer the videos mostly in English, or mostly in French with just the important expressions in English.

      But don’t worry, the videos in the course are all in English, and you’ll even have the possibility to test the complete lesson on how to answer the question “What are your salary expectations?”. I’d love it if you watched that lesson and gave me feedback! You’ll get the link on Thursday!

      Thanks again, and I’m glad to see you here!

  2. Hi Christina, Thank you for this lesson. Another very interesting one. In a previous interiview, the recruteur asked me “What can you bring to the company that another candidate can’t bring?” I remember I answered to the question, something about my experience and my skills, but I don’t think I was very convincing. How do you answer this question when you don’t know the profile of other candidates? I didn’t want to say “I don’t know because I don’t know the other candidates” but truly, it’s difficult to answer. Can you give me some advices?

  3. Thanks Christina for your videos, I agree with you, job interview over the phone is really more difficult than a face to face one. Especially with the English accent, I have less trouble understanding the American accent over the English one. But with practice, you could go over it, if you have any English native friends on your close ones, use them 🙂

    1. Hi Fabrice, that’s great advice! If you have any friends who speak English, definitely ask them if you can practice with them. Many are more than happy to help!

      It’s not surprising that you have less difficulties with the American accent, since so much pop culture is in “American” : movies, series, etc. We’re more used to hearing the American accent now than in the past, when English was only learned at school, with British accents!

      Thanks for your advice and have a great day!

  4. Hi Christina, Thank you so much for your videos. I think your advices are just great. And so helpful! However, I suggest you to do them in English. All of them! Even for the job interviews! That way, we really have to listen, to think and to structure our ideas in English. Otherwise, we think in French then translate which is pretty bad.

    But anyway, thank you, Christina. You are doing a great job!

    1. Hi Cécile,

      Thanks so much for your comment and the interesting feedback! And I have good news, I’m going to re-do the interview videos in English in the next month or so. As you suggest…all of them! Like you said, this way, you’ll be 100% in English, to think in English, to hear English, and to not translate or move between the 2 languages.

      I wanted to try some videos in French to see if people like them, but I think it’s better to do it all in English.

      So thanks for your feedback, because it’s good to know that the decision to do it all in English is the right one!

  5. Thank you so much for this video, and I would like to ask you how I can overcome my nervous and less confidence when I am in interview. Thank you

    1. Hi Neven! The first answer is “be prepared.” If you prepare well, you’ll be more confident. In your preparation, it’s important to practice speaking out loud also. This way, you’ll become comfortable speaking in English, formulating your responses, and having clear structures.

      It’s normal to be a little nervous, but if you prepare well and practice, you’ll have more confidence because you know you can do it. Preparation and practice out loud (preferably with someone who can give you feedback) are the keys to success.

      Thanks and good luck in your interview!
