    Default It was because...

    'I spoke well at the interview and I got the job.'
    It was because...
    'It was because of my well speaking at the interview that I got the job.'
    'It was because I spoke well at the interview that I got the job.'
    Which one is correct?

    Default Re: It was because...

    I prefer the second one.

    'It was because I spoke well at the interview that I got the job.'

    The first sentence is wrong. It should be 'It was because of my speaking well at the interview that I got the job.' Even so, the other construction sounds much better.
