Please help me to practice engineer job interviewing in English.

Hello, I'm looking for a teacher or language exchange partners who help me to practice interviewing in English.

I'm a software engineer, so I need someone's help who has the same background as me.

Of course, I can teach you Japanese. Thank you!

If you can afford a professional teacher that would be your best starting point; you can always add learning partners later to practice conversation with.

A teacher is a professional who knows how to teach, rather than just someone who speaks the language.  For example I can speak English and tell you if something "sounds natural" but in most cases I can't explain why.  Furthermore I know nothing about effective teaching methods.

A teacher will be dedicated to being there at the appointment time without any delays or excuses. 

Learning partners can be great, but it might take a while to find a good, reliable one.  In many cases it will be a 50/50 sharing so you may get only 1/2 hour help for every 1 hour you spend. 

If you have limited time to prepare I would focus on finding a teacher with the appropriate software experience and think about learning partners later. 

I'm not a teacher, just a student and retired sw engineer so I wanted to share my thoughts.

Since you are looking for a teacher, try “Find A Teacher” on the italki website.  My search found 21 professional teachers who are native speakers with the skill “software” in their profile or lesson description.

I am one of the 21 teachers.  I am a retired software engineer and a trained English teacher.  I invite you to check my profile.

I work in the software engineering field as well!

I think the questions will be like this:

1. How many years of experience have ypu been in the SE field?

2. Do you program? What is your programming language? How many years of experience do you have with your language? Are you willing to learn ◯◯ language?

3. Do you engage in any managerial tasks?

4. What is your specialty in your previous job?

5. What are your strengths and weaknesses?

6. Do you have a particular field you want to work on?

7. What is your expected salary range?

8. Are you fine with working on a ◯◯ shift?

Good Luck on your interview! I recommend searching in google for other interview questions as well.

Nothing special.
You must be intermediate or above.
Of course, you know vocabulary if you are developer.
I was asked common questions.
