BEP 114 – Colloquio di lavoro inglese: HR Review of Candidates

BEP 114 - job interview listening

As part of our series on colloquio di lavoro, in this Business English Pod episode we’ll be taking a closer look at the process from the HR perspective. Specifically, we’ll be studying the language of reaching a decision about whom to hire.

A Brazilian business unit of fast moving consumer goods company Fun Beverages has recently interviewed several people for an HR manager position. Now the regional HR director, Ted, and the business unit general manager, George, are meeting to discuss the short-listed, or final, candidates.

As you listen, pay attention to the language they use to compare the two interviewees and to decide which one is the best fit. Inoltre, we’ll study how they support a candidate, emphasize priorities, express reservations (or second thoughts), and suggest action.

Domande d'ascolto:

1. Which candidate do they prefer and why?
2. What are the relative strengths and weaknesses of the two main candidates, Ronaldo and Yala?
3. What are the main reservations about Yala?
