要获得梦想中的工作并不只要求有一份书写精美的简历就行了-你还需要一份引人注目 的求职信正式介绍自己并展示你的价值。根据这里的向导准备一份动人的求职信。
Landing that dream job doesn’t only require a well-written resume - you’ll also need a sparkling cover letter to formally introduce yourself and present your value. Follow this guide to prepare a winning cover letter.
Stay on target
当你开始写你的求职信的时候,直入主题。解释你为什么写这封求职信并将你感兴趣的职位头衔写在 里面。你可能还想要说一下你是在哪儿听到这份工作的:?I am writing to express my interest in the Sales Manager position advertised on your website. I have enclosed a copy of my resume for your review.?。 When you begin your cover letter, get to the point immediately. Explain why you’re writing and include the title of the position you’re interested in. You may even want to say where you heard of the opening: “I am writing to express my interest in the Sales Manager position advertised on your website. I have enclosed a copy of my resume for your review.”
Match your skills
一封求职信是你向雇主证明你是最好人选的好机会,因此确定该职位的技能要求是重要的第一步。然 后,将你以前和这些技能相关的工作经历的具体介绍,并且最后以类似这样的话总结:?I am confident that these combined experiences make me an ideal candidate for this position.?。 A cover letter is your chance to convince the employer that you’re the perfect candidate, so identifying the position’s skill requirements is an important first step. Then, include clear examples from your previous experience which reveal that you possess these skills, and finally sum up with something like this: “I am confident that these combined experiences make me an ideal candidate for this position.”
Demonstrate your English ability
如果要求你写一封求职信,那可是显示你流畅的写作技巧和专业特性的绝好的机会。记住,无论如何, 冗长的句子并不一定代表流畅。你的句子要短而精;不要试图用你太过于复杂的句子来让人影响深刻, 否则的话会让读者有疲劳和困惑的感觉的。 If an English cover letter is required, it’s a fantastic opportunity to demonstrate your smooth writing skills and professionalism. Keep in mind, however, that long sentences don’t necessarily indicate fluency. Keep your sentences short and clear; do not try to over-impress by writing complex sentences, which can often leave the reader tired and confused.

Sell yourself
当你写求职信的时候,你应该总是记得你的任务是-推销自己!陈述你能为雇主所做的,而不是相反, 将能让你脱颖而出。使用行为动词例如:?facilitated?、?developed?和?managed?的,来描述 你工作的职责,并自信的表示例如:?I strongly believe I possess the right combination of skills and experience you are looking for?,令人知道你充满信心。 When you’re writing a cover letter, you should always remember your mission ? to sell yourself! Demonstrating what you can do for the employer, not the other way around, will make you stand out from the crowd. Use action verbs such as facilitated, developed and managed to describe your job responsibilities, and make claims such as “I strongly believe I possess the right combination of skills and experience you are looking for” with confidence.
Proofread!
坐下来,马上写然后马上发出你的求职信将保证发生一件事-错误!一旦你写了求职信,确定你稍后会 校正一下或是请你的朋友看一下。仔细看拼写和语法错误并确定写的不会太长。最好,?put yourself in the employer’s shoes?,或假设你是雇主,并决定是否你想要雇佣一名写了这求职信的应聘者。如果不 想,回过去并重新改写直到你写出一封令人入胜的求职信! Sitting down, writing and then immediately sending your cover letter will guarantee one thing ? mistakes! Once you have written your cover letter, make sure you proofread it at a later time and ask a friend to read it as well. Look closely for spelling and grammatical errors and make sure it’s not too long. Finally, put yourself in the employer’s shoes, or pretend that you are the employer, and decide if you would hire the candidate who wrote the letter. If not, go back and make revisions until you have a sparkling cover letter!

如果你找到了最理想的工作,但是有一件事还横在当中:面试。“万一我说错了什么怎么 办?”你在想。别担心了!好消息是许多的雇主都在他们的面试中问同样的基本的问题。 因此只要准备一下,你就可以避免胡言乱语而失去你梦想工作的可能性了。
You’ve found the perfect job, but there’s one thing standing in the way: the interview. “What if I say something wrong?” you think. Stop worrying! The good news is that many recruiters ask the same basic questions in their interviews. So with a little preparation, you can avoid putting your foot in your mouth and saying goodbye to your dream job.
Tell me about yourself.
面试者常常以这样的问题开始。记得,他们想要听到的是你的工作技巧,不是你的个人生活。不要说: ?I was born in Taipei?、?I like to play computer games?、或是?I have two brothers.?,告诉他们 有关你职业生涯的发展,你学到的东西或是你是如何具体的某些工作技巧。 Interviewers often start with this question. Remember, they want to hear about your job skills, not your personal life. Don’t say, “I was born in Taipei,” “I like to play computer games,” or “I have two brothers.” Tell them about your career growth, what you’ve learned or how you’ve developed specific skills.

What are your strengths?
继续,自我推销!这个问题的关键是给出具体的例子。避免只是简单的列出几项,象:?I’m really organized, punctual and get along well with others.?,接着具体的说到你刚才的提到的内容:?For example…?,并解释你在之前的工作中是如何运用此特长的。 Go ahead, sell yourself! The key to this question is to give specific examples. Avoid simply offering a list, like: “I’m really organized, punctual and get along well with others.” Follow up anything you mention with, “For example …” and then explain how you demonstrated this quality in a previous job.
Why are you interested in working for our company?
雇主们想要知道你为什么想为他们工作。因此就让他们了解你很清楚公司的运营模式以及你对此工作非 常有积极性。不要以?Umm?、?I don’t know?、?It seemed like a good career move?、或是?I haven’t been able to find anything else interesting.?。记得雇主们想知道你能带给公司什么,而不是 公司能带给你什么! Employers want to know why you want to work for them. So show them you understand what the company does and that you’re enthusiastic about the work. Don’t start with “Umm,” “I don’t know,” “It seemed like a good career move,” or “I haven’t been able to find anything else interesting.” Keep in mind that the interviewer wants to know what you can bring to their company, not what the company can bring to you!
Why did you leave your last job?
可能你上一份工作非常的糟糕,但是面试并不是谈论的合适的场合。就算是真的,不要对你现有的 或是过去的雇主或是同事进行负面或是武断的评论:?I didn’t agree with the company’s direction?、 ?I got no recognition for my work?、?My boss was totally unreasonable.?,想这样的评论会让你 听起来不可理喻。 Maybe your last job was terrible, but an interview is not the place to talk about it. Even if it’s true, never make negative or opinionated comments about your current or past employers or co-workers: “I didn’t agree with the company’s direction,” “I got no recognition for my work,” “My boss was totally unreasonable.” Statements like these make you sound unreasonable!
Do you have any questions for me?
面试官通常以此问卷结束面试。询问具体的问题以显示你非常了解该公司,但却希望了解更多的内容。 不要问那些你早就该知道答案的问题,象:?What does your company do??,或是?Could you tell me your name again??。此外,不要问薪水或是和假期相关的问题:?When do you give raises??、 ?How much vacation time can I expect??,在听到了他们告诉你?We’d like to offer you the job?才 去问此类的问题。 Interviewers usually finish an interview with this question. Ask specific questions that show you already know a lot about the company, but want to know more. Do not ask questions that you should already know the answers to, like, “What does your company do?” Or, “Could you tell me your name again?” Also, don’t ask salary or vacation-related questions: “When do you give raises?” “How much vacation time can I expect?” Save those questions for after you hear, “We’d like to offer you the job.”

如果你在梦想的公司中获得一份更好的工作,可能会让你马上答应接受这份工作。但是 千万不要马上这么做!许多公司经理期待有前途的职员能商谈他们自己的福利问题,就 算获得每个月小小数目的工资提高在长期来看也是很好的回报。这有一些用英语商谈你 的薪水的窍门。
If you’re offered a much-desired position at the company of your dreams, it may be tempting to agree to the offer right away. But don’t! Many managers expect perspective employees to negotiate their package, and even negotiating a small amount per month can offer big returns in the long run. Here are some tips for negotiating your salary in English.
Thank you for your offer.
无论你的决定如何并且你的福利情况如何,确定你表示你的感谢。你可以通过这样的短语表示,? I appreciate your consideration?和?I am honored that you have selected me.?。 No matter what your decision and what the package, make sure you give your thanks. You may also want to offer phrases such as, “I appreciate your consideration” and “I am honored that you have selected me.”
Hmm...
一旦你对达到的工作和薪水表示
