This is a role-playing exercise for job seekers.

Best done in group of four job seekers; one is the job candidate, the other the hiring manager. The other two become observers for style and substance of the job candidate. Observers note the style [body language, voice/tone] of the candidates replies while observer notes the replies given to answer the questions.

The 'hiring manager' asks the questions from either set A, B, C, or D. After a mock interview, allow the job candidate to responsed first how the mock interview went from him/her. Then the others provide their critique.

After each interview rotate the roles.
