Old Year and New Year by Christina Rossetti
New Year met me somewhat sad:
Old Year left me tired,
Stripped of favourite things I had
Baulked of much desired:
Yet further on my road to-day
God willing, further on my way.

Much depends on whether your prospective employers are native speakers or not. If they aren't then the required level is usually way lower.
If yo're going for a interview with native speakers, give yourself a simple test. Try watching an episode of a British/American criminal or soap opera series. Choosing these genres is important since you'll confront dialogues in the modern language at the natural speed. If you've managed to understand almost everything, go for an interview. If you've got the general idea only then you will understand not too much. To assess your performance, switch the English subtitles on.
I have been interviewed the last week from a company in sweden, the agent found a high technical skills in me, but my english level is very limited. that's why i was declined and that's why i want to improve my english level from intermediate to advanced or professional .
I found something on this theme. The article is about what questions employers will ask me and how I could answer it. I can create a dialog, and maybe its help me in the future.

Out of curiosity, what is your field of work?
If your English is pretty good, then you could be able to hold an interview in English. By contrary, if your English is not good enough yet, it could turn out a frustration for you. Whether your English is good enough depends on what company and what position you are applying for. If you apply for the position of a plumber at a domestic hotel that serves foreign tourists, for example, I guess you don't need a very advanced level of English. But if you apply for the position of customer assistant which implies providing services for foreign customers, your English should be rather fluent.
Here and there
Who are your prospective employers
? Are you being interviewed for a job where your bosses are speaking English or it is just that that want you to understand English? I would have thought it is much easier to conduct your interview in you own language unless they want to interview you in English.
Thanks, everyone!!! Your answers very help me. I will form a dialog with questions, and answers.
I am a Land surveyor or map creator. I've studied as a Land surveyor at Syberian state University of geosystems and technologies. I am on vacation at the moment. Of course, if I have a little bit free time I am trying to be here, in chat, with you guys.
