Hi Jake,

the interview is usually held in the local language whenever the local language is different from English. Having said that:

  • sometimes you will have interviews in both local language and English
  • in some countries you can apply without knowledge of the local language (eg Middle East, Amsterdam and the Nordics for some companies). In these countries, if you don’t know the local language, the interview will just be in English.

Hope this helps,

Francesco

Hi,

It depends. Interviews can be held in a local language in non-English speaking countries however, it is possible there will be a mix of two languages.

Hi,

Usually, it's a mix of both with the majority in the national language. Basically most of the non-Englis speaking country excluding the Middle East

Best!
