What do you expect from your employees?
Being able to communicate with customers or colleagues from foreign branches in at least one foreign language is often a requirement for a new job.
Similarly, it is now expected that employees can move around the world without problems, so they can adapt to different cultures and respond adequately to cultural differences and practices.
Job interview in a foreign language
If you want to ensure that your candidate has a command of a language, it is a good idea to have at least parts of the application interview in that language.
This gives you an exact idea of whether the language skills meet your requirements.
