求职:建立良好的第一印象(1)
[ 2006-11-02 09:35 ]

一旦你见到了有权利决定是否雇用你的人,让他对你有个好印象非常重要。So, the first thing to do is to concentrate on making a good first impression. During the first 15 seconds of an interview, an employer will perceive you in two ways, one visual and the other tactile. You guessed it: Your appearance and your handshake go a long way toward making a good impression.

To make the right first impression and sell yourself in an interview, you must prepare, start at the beginning, and never skip steps. Let's begin, using the job interview as an example.

第一件事就是要了解你要求职的这家公司。Begin researching a company when you begin requesting interviews.

Use a company's Web site, information from network contacts, or a library to get to know your interviewer. Understand what that company does, and try to get to know its culture, or personality. Any information, however trivial, may be used to your advantage during the interview.

着装一定要得体。Your "interview suit" should be appropriate for the company and industry, and you should prepare to dress to sell well in advance of your interviews. If you aren't sure how "dressy" or how "casual" would be acceptable, go to the company and observe the employees, or simply just ask. It's perfectly acceptable for you to ask the person who arranges your interview about dress codes. It shows that you want to make the right impression. Remember that less is best with makeup, jewelry, and cologne, and the interview is not the place to make fashion statements. You don't have to spend a fortune on suitable interview outfits, but you should plan ahead and get comfortable with your new clothes before the interview.

一个小记事本可以帮你大忙。Keep accurate records. Record the date and time of each interview and take your calendar to your interviews, along with a few extra copies of your resume, copies of your references, a note pad, and a pen that works. As soon as your interview is over, record when you intend to follow up, or the date of a second interview.

一定要对面试的时间、地点有清楚的了解,要提前弄清楚怎样到达目的地。A dry run (排练,此处意为探路) before the interview is a good idea. Arrive ten minutes early. Never be barely on time for an interview. Walk into the office ten minutes early. You will probably have to complete an employment application, so allow time. Good first impressions don't start by being late.

不要表现出坐立不安和忙乱。If asked to wait for your interviewer, do so patiently. Don't chew gum, smoke, or accept a soft drink or coffee. Sit quietly and mentally rehearse your interview agenda.

提前周密的准备可以让你更加从容的应对面试的过程,然而要建立良好的第一印象,还要注意面试时候的表情和举止,我们下次再来关注一下面试时应注意的事项。
