If you’ve visited my blog at least once, I bet you have some English fluency issues; here are a couple of stories I can share with you so that you fully understand what exactly I’m talking about! 😉
A few years ago I was looking for a new job, and at that time it was quite popular to hold the first round of interviews over the phone – obviously companies didn’t want to waste their time and effort on candidates falling short of the requirements.
I’ve had had quite a few phone interviews before this particular one, so when I picked up the phone to hear a woman’s voice asking me if I’m free to talk about the direct sales position I was going for, I felt quite confident that I would perform fairly well!
And that’s when it all started going downhill…
For some reason I couldn’t understand (now that I’ve dealt with my fluency issues I actually understand it all quite well!) I just couldn’t find the right words to say.
I started hesitating, I was stumbling upon words, and I was also making all sorts of stupid grammar mistakes although normally my English was fairly good.
It all ended with the interviewer telling me that I should actually improve my English before applying for similar positions…
Needless to say, I was mortified and I felt humiliated! 😡
And here’s another situation I found myself in a few years ago.
I was working in a call center as a data analyst at the time, and luckily enough a senior position opened up in our team. So it happened that I was the most likely candidate to get this internal promotion, and the only formality preventing me from actually sitting in the senior seat was an interview with our manager.
And that’s when the disaster struck…
Under normal circumstances I would have no major issues speaking with the manager, but for some reason during the interview I felt as if my ability to speak in English has been reduced to a total beginner’s level ❗
Somehow I managed to pull it all off in the end, but the experience was really unpleasant – I felt like a total idiot and I kept thinking all the time: “Oh my God, what is he thinking about my English skills?!”
What I want YOU to do right now is quite straightforward.
