My friend, Olga, has been looking for a QA job for the last few weeks. She’s a bilingual tester, having studied French in the secondary school in her home country.
She’s cracking a few words in French, has a heavy accent, but knows grammar and spelling quite well.
I was laughing with her because she asked me to prepare her for the interview in French that she had a few days ago. I was laughing not of her, but with her because she’s so funny, the way she speaks French!! Of course I’m not supposed to laugh but what can I do when I hear somebody speaking French in a heavy accent??? She’s a nice gal, she didn’t mind….and it’s better if I laugh and not the interviewer, at least I can correct her…
When you go for an interview in French it’s important to repeat the first two sentences you are going to say so that you sound like you’re speaking French fluently.
What are the two first questions that an interviewer will ask you in the interview? Can you guess?
How can you make this interview to be successful and end up with an offer on the table?
“J’ai appris le Francais a l’ecole…”
If you need help in getting prepared for an interview in French, please contact me and I will be most happy to help you. I promise I won’t laugh:)))
