And then you should “google it”. Write down one of the search engine and find ou what it looks like. Another alternative to search is Linkedin.

For that reason, you should prepare for the interview. You should tell your experience on your own loudly. Maybe you can record your voice while talking and then you can listen your own voice. How does it sound? Try and try again until feel comfortable and sounds good.
