```We assume that the job vacancy is 1 of the 12, and there are
11 non-job vacancy.

We can choose for interview in 5 ways.
For each of those 5 ways to choose for the interview, we can arrange
the other 11 people in the 11 non-job vacancy in 11! ways.

Answer: 5×11! = 5×39916800 = 199584000 ways

This means that there is 1 job seat and 12 person qualified for interview, so 11 of these shall not get this job. so 11! shall be multiplied with 5.

but how did you get the large number?

11! = 11 x 10 x9 x8x7x6x5x4x3x2x1
