film in which a job interview appears


film in which a job interview appears

Hi everyone. I ´m preparing a unit about jobs and I would like to create an activity based on a film clip. I would like to show students a job interview which we can see in a film but I don ´t remember any film with it. Could you help me?

Thanks in advance,

 "Erin Brockovich" with Julia Roberts seems fine to me. It is also fine to deal with Environment. I ´ve worked it for the topic jobs.

Dear Paola,
I know these other movies, too: Cocktail (with Tom Cruise), Mary Poppins, The Firm (with Tom Cruise), Mrs. Doubtfire", The Associate (with Whoopi Goldberg), Three to Tango, The Secret of My Success, Freedom Writers (based on a true story), The Pursuit of Happiness - THE BEST EXAMPLE!!! (another true story), The Devil Wears Prada (another very good example) and Night At The Museum.
Good luck!

Erin Brockovitch, Working Girl and the Full Monty can be used. Here are two links for specific videos.

I ´ve used this video to add some fun to a bit boring and serious topic http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CYYAvPjNmYY

There are some more good clips on the same YouTube page.

Hi, you also have a couple of scenes in the movie "Marley and Me". Otherwise you have many episodes of Friends that deal with job interviews - if you want a list, I can have a look depending on the characters... I like using Friends because the scenes are short and usually they are very funny (images and words).

As for an exemple of what you should not do in an interview, I would think of ´ ´Trainspotting ´ ´
