1. Describe the employee you most enjoy working with. 你最喜欢和什么样的同事一起合作?
问题分析： 在这个问题上， 面试官希望了解的是： 第一， 这份工作是否会令你开心; 第二， 你所欣赏的人往往就是你的影子(心理学家如是说)， 比如说， 如果你说自己欣赏爽直的人， 往往你就是这样一个人!
回答示范1： I enjoy working with straightforward people, partly because I am a straightforward person myself. I hope my colleagues will offer their honest suggestions and even criticisms to me. Frankly speaking, I am not very comfortable with those people who are too sensitive and always hesitate to express themselves.
点评1： 突出了自己的直爽的性格， 很好。
回答示范2： I enjoy working with positive-minded people who don’t complain too much. I find it uncomfortable to work with those who always complain. In my opinion, we either need to make improvements or accept the facts. Complaining is a total waste of time.
点评2： 这是一个令人喜欢的回答， 因为任何一个公司里都有大量的“怨男怨女”， 令人反感却无可奈何。如果能多招聘几个“阳光男女”进公司， 岂不美哉。
回答示范3： I enjoy working with those who are action makers. I don’t like to work with big talkers or those who are very slow to react. I am a quick person myself, so I prefer to work with the people of the same kind.
点评3： 大家都喜欢风风火火的人， 只要不忙中出错就好。
回答示范4： Well, I like to work with those who are good at planning because they can always make a strong team with me. I am a detail person, and I need to work with big picture planners to achieve the best results.
点评4： 善于利用别人的长处弥补自己的不足， 不错。
2. What is an ideal boss like? 你最喜欢的老板是什么样子的?
问题分析： 和上个问题一样， 面试官希望了解的是： 第一， 这份工作是否会让你满意?第二， 你一定会效仿你的老板， 如果你说自己喜欢的老板是能吃苦耐劳的， 那么你往往是一个吃苦耐劳的人; 如果你说喜欢自己的老板是高屋建瓴的， 那么你往往也是一个颇为注重宏观规划的人。要格外注意的是， 如果面试你的人恰恰就是你未来的老板， 那么这个问题可要小心了， 如果你所做的'描述和他的个性风马牛不相及， 可能令面试功亏一篑。
普通回答： I like democratic bosses. They can give me enough room to develop on my own, rather than giving instructions to me for every small detail.
点评： 这个回答比较危险， 明显地表现出该申请人追求“自由化”的性格特点， 会令很多面试官觉得心里一沉。所以说， 在回答这个问题的时候， 要走“保守主义”路线， 尽量不要给人一种“初生牛犊不怕虎”的感觉， 而要表现出谦虚谨慎、 积极、 诚恳等特点。再者说， 这个回答明显在给老板提要求， 当你对比下面这个回答示范的时候， 你就会明白一个道理： 给老板提要求， 远远不如请老板给自己提要求令人喜欢。
回答示范1： Ideal boss? Well, I prefer strict bosses. Although working with strict bosses means a lot of pressure, I can grow fast with them. For new graduates, nothing is more important than developing our abilities as fast as we can.
点评1： 主动请老板为自己加压， 多么可爱可敬的人， 善哉!工作经验有所欠缺的申请人， 不妨向面试官表表这样的态度。
回答示范2： Ideal boss? Let me see. Well, in my opinion, an ideal boss can effectively motivate his or her subordinates by encouraging good performance and punishing poor performance. I will feel highly motivated to do a good job if I know my boss would reward me for excellent performance.
点评2： 好!一个希望老板能“奖惩分明”员工， 往往是很自信能够做出优良表现的员工。
1. What were the best aspects of your last job? 在上一份工作中， 你最喜欢的是什么地方?
问题分析： 在这个问题上， 面试官要捕捉的信息点是： 第一， 这个申请人是个什么样的人?如果你是一个小秘书却喜欢有挑战， 那么你很可能还停留在好高骛远的不成熟阶段; 如果你喜欢原来的老板给你很大的自由发展空间， 那么你很可能是个“自由派”， 不太喜欢约束， 等等; 第二， 你所申请的工作到底是否会让你满意?如果这一份工作内容和你最喜欢的工作内容大相径庭， 比如说， 你喜欢有挑战而偏偏这份工作很细节， 那么面试官可能会因为“自惭形秽”而拒绝你的申请。所以， 你所强调的最喜欢的地方一定要在新工作中Yesterday once more才行。
回答示范1： The best aspect of my last job? Let me see. Well, I think it was the trust of my boss. He gave me lots of room to develop myself, you know, letting me shoulder responsibilities. And I didn’t let him down. I did a good job.
点评1： 一个令前任老板信任的员工， 更有可能赢得未来老板的信任。
回答示范2： The best aspect of my job, well, is that I can learn a lot from others. As you can imagine Carrefour has a team of high-quality staff. When working with these people I can learn a lot, you know, their attitude to see things, the way they work.
点评2： 乐于向别人学习的人， 我们喜欢!
回答示范3： The best aspect of my job? I think it’s the team I work with. As a sales assistant I work with the sales reps on a daily basis. It’s so interesting to work with them, as you can imagine the sales reps are all active and humorous guys. I can learn so much from them. After working with them for a year and a half, I feel I have “inherited” their good traits. I’m tougher, more positive and a lot better at pleasing others, hehe.
点评3： 很多人都会说自己工作最好的地方是拥有一群好同事， 但是只有在你给出细节之后才能打动面试官。这个答案很棒， 既夸了自己的团队， 也夸奖了自己。
回答示范4： The best aspect of my job? I think it’s the fast pace of it. I’m kept busy by my clients. You know I had two jobs, and compared with the first job, which was dead quiet, I like the second busy job so much better. It makes me feel much more satisfied with myself.
点评4： 用事实说明自己是喜欢繁忙工作的人， 善哉!
2. What were the worst aspects of your last job? 在上一份工作中， 你最讨厌的是什么地方?
问题分析： 这是一个比较棘手的一个问题， 说得虚伪了没有人相信， 说得太真实又唯恐令面试官反感。
回答示范1： The worst aspect of my current job is definitely lack of job security. My pay was delayed twice in the four months since I’ve worked there. I joined this company in hope of helping the boss to grow a small business into a bigger one. However, it proved a lot more difficult than I expected. The boss is very reluctant to invest in promotion. As a result, business has been rather slow.
点评1： 职位不稳定， 薪水不能保证， 这的确是份糟糕的工作。不过， 别忘记告诉面试官， 这可不是你的错儿。
回答示范2： I have to work six days a week in my current job. You know it’s against the Labor Law but it’s the normal practice in many factories in Dongguan. It would be quite alright for me to work on Saturday occasionally, but certainly not every Saturday.
1、”What are your goals for the future?” or “Where do you see yourself in five years?”
Don’t discuss your goals for returning to school or having a family, they are not relevant and could knock you out of contention for the job. Rather, you want to connect your answer to the job you are applying for.
-My long-term goals involve growing with a company where I can continue to learn, take on additional responsibilities, and contribute as much of value as I can.
-I see myself as a top performing employee in a well-established organization, like this one. I plan on enhancing my skills and continuing my involvement in (related) professional associations.
-Once I gain additional experience, I would like to move on from a technical position to management.
-In the XYZ Corporation, what is a typical career path for someone with my skills and experiences?
2、Tell me about yourself/ How would you describe yourself?
You walk into the interview room, shake hands with your interviewer and sit down with your best interviewing smile on. Guess what their first question is? “Tell me about yourself.” Your interviewer is not looking for a 10-minute dissertation here. Instead, offer a razor sharp sentence or two that sets the stage for further discussion and sets you apart from your competitors.
Your Unique Selling Proposition (USP)说出你的卖点
Give them “your synopsis about you” answer, specifically your Unique Selling Proposition. Known as a personal branding or a value-added statement, the USP is a succinct, one-sentence description of who you are, your biggest strength and the major benefit that a company will derive from this strength. Here is an example of a Unique Selling Proposition: “I’m a seasoned Retail Manager strong in developing training programs and loss prevention techniques that have resulted in revenue savings of over $2.3Million for (employer’s name) during the past 11 years.”
What a difference you’ve made with this statement. Your interviewer is now sitting forward in her chair giving you her full attention. At this point, you might add the following sentence: “I’d like to discuss how I might be able to do something like that for you.” The ball is now back in her court and you have the beginnings of a real discussion and not an interrogation process.
“My background to date has been centered around preparing myself to become the very best financial consultant I can become. Let me tell you specifically how I’ve prepared myself. I am an undergraduate student in finance and accounting at _________ University. My past experiences has been in retail and higher education. Both aspects have prepared me well for this career.”
首先要明确他们想了解的是哪方面的内容Do they want to know about your career so far, about your hobbies or family life? If in doubt, ASK them to clarify what they wish you to talk about. Then give a short factual answer, ending with “is there anything else you’d like to know about me?”
How would you describe yourself?
Try to think about what the interviewers are looking for and keep this in mind as you answer interview questions. Remember the job advert? Were they looking for initiative, a good communicator, someone with good attention to detail? Describe yourself in these terms. Start with “I am..” and not with “I think…” or “I believe..” so that you sound self aware and confident.
