Wawancara kerja dalam bahasa inggris?

Waktu pertama kali ngerasain english
interview, Alhamdulillah… bikin kepala mumet, mata berkupu-kupu (diganti karena kunang-
kunang lagi mudik), perut mules, keringat dingin, gemetaran & bikin perut laper. Dengan
strategi pasang kuping lebar-lebar untuk denger per-kata + liatin gerak bibir lawan bicara
dikeluarin segala kemampuan untuk menjawab pertanyaan yang akhirnya Alhamdulillah…
gagal. Saat itu langsung evaluasi diri dan menyimpulkan kalo wawancara kerja dalam bahasa

linggis eh inggris memang menakutkan . Penyebabnya adalah kurangnya kemampuan
terutama speaking dan listening skill. Bagi semuanya yang pernah mengalami hal-hal serupa
silahkan copy–paste rangkuman interview ini, mumpung gratis dan belum diblokir. Semoga
bisa membantu.
