it depends on who gets to interview you
« on: October 25, 2021, 05:41:06 pm »
Let's say many people would want to work at ABC company, which offers the highest salary in the industry; but they say that it's really tough to get there. Joe casually met his former classmate, who happens to work there. Please confirm if the italicized text below sounds natural:

Joe: Is it true that it's really hard to get in your company?​
Jim: Well, it depends on who gets to interview you. Mine was super nice and friendly.​

Joe was not admitted when he applied, so he decides to work abroad because there are only low-paying jobs in his area. But he needs to apply for a working visa at an embassy. He contacts a distant relative working there.

Joe: Is it true that it's really hard to get a working visa?​
Jane: Well, it depends on who gets to interview you. Why not give it a try?​
English is my second language.

Yes that's fine. I would probably say: It depends on who interviews you. Yours is a little longer but certainly quite natural and acceptable.
Best wishes,
