你是否还在愁苦手捧”金光灿灿”的resume却面试屡次碰壁?你是否还在郁闷费了颇多心思准备的interview却总是收效甚微?GOVision为正在漫漫求职路上的各位莘莘学子总结了以下四大interview tips,解答各位关于面试前期准备、临场发挥、事后follow up的各种疑惑。若仍有疑问,欢迎关注GOVision wechat主页,GOVision团队随时随地为你解答!

Tips 1. 关于phone interview

对于native来说最简单粗暴的phone interview在留学生面前就显得颇有难度。碍于语言差距,小伙伴们总会抱怨phone interview发挥不佳。若在提前得知有phone interview的前提下,GOVision建议大家仍穿着正装准备面试,以此提醒自己interview的正式性。若接到某个电话被问到”Is it okay to talk to you for a moment?”,同学们也要立马警醒,因为这很有可能是面试官的即兴phone interview!在phone interview时,建议提前准备好纸笔及自己的resume放在面前,以便记下想说的main points,随问随看、随写随答。同时,大家在面试时也可选择适当地walk around缓解紧张心情。

在结束phone interview时该说什么呢?普通版:“Thank you for taking your time.”最佳版:“Thank you for taking your time and giving me this opportunity. Do you mind me sending you a follow up email after?”千万不要版:“Thanks, see you next time.”第二个最佳版的亮点是follow up email,这是让interviewer记住你最简单直观的方法。建议大家一定想尽一切方法记下面试官的姓及email,以便面试后可follow up。那么问题来了,Follow up email写什么?建议各位在email里主要陈述你的感谢以及interest,不建议再次sell yourself。第三个千万不要版的败点是过于胸有成竹,让interviewer觉得你对面试太有自信,往往会适得其反。

最后温馨提示,还未开通voice mail的小伙伴要赶紧开通,面试官只会打一次电话!机不可失,失不再来!

Tips 2. 关于自我陈述“Tell me about yourself

首先,若各位申请工作时使用英文名,make sure你的英文名是简单可用的。正如小时代里Kitty犀利吐槽:“实在没想到Vivian会是个男的,你以后还是用你的中文名张铁柱吧。”与此同理。

在这里给各位介绍一下自我陈述的经典模板:

a. This is who I am. 介绍自己,多是关于interests, personality, characteristics, leadership。在陈述interests时,建议各位尽量能将自己的interests与所申请的工作联系起来。如小A喜欢小孩很有耐心,这对于nurse, customer service类的工作很有帮助;又如小B爱艺术爱创新,这与时刻需要innovation的marketing职位很相符。前期准备时仔细考虑如何自我介绍,这能给面试官一个很好的第一印象。

温馨提示:Be familiar with你的examples!如果你提及自己喜欢travelling但却说不出澳大利亚的首都是堪培拉,如果你提及自己喜欢摄影却不知道单反和微单有啥区别,这会让面试官对你的自我介绍和诚信度大打折扣。所以,前期准备时,慎重选择你的examples。

b. This is what I do. 陈述自己工作、学校、volunteer经历。GOVision在这里给各位的建议是:举例、举例、再举例,细节、细节、再细节。面试官很轻易就能知道你说的experience是真是假,能让他们信服的唯一制胜妙招就是be specific。此外,如果要介绍自己社团经验的同学们,请sell it big!适当美化、锦上添花。但是值得注意的是,千万不要cheat!

c. Why I am the perfect fit.总结你的经历、interests、personality,并陈述你如何能完美胜任工作。

除了classic model外,小细节也值得注意。

1. 面试时禁止摇晃身体、抖脚、翘二郎腿等行为。个人形象至关重要,不要让小动作毁了你的interview!

2. 禁止沉默。哪怕问题让你不知所措,也不要不说话。可用“Sorry, I am too excited about the interview, could you give me a few more seconds to think about it?”等为自己争取多几秒钟的思考时间。GOVision建议各位面试时可随身带一瓶矿泉水,每当没话可说时就借口喝一点水,这样又可争取到3到5秒思考时间。

3. 保持微笑!亲切和善是制胜法宝!

4. 双眼直视面试官。保持真诚的态度,切忌怒目圆睁。

Tips 3. 关于Behavioral Questions

如今behavioral questions成为越来越多高上大企业争相采用的面试题型之一,题目多以各种不同场为主,如“Tell me about one time that you contribute to your team”或“Tell me how you successfully solve conflicts between group members”。此类问题重在考察面试者的communication、leadership、innovation以及teamwork的能力。面对behavioral questions,GOVision给各位提供一套简单可行的答题model:”STAR”。

S – Situation:清楚有条理地阐述当时状况,如“There was a time that me and 4 other peer students were asked to deliver a presentation in class. However, one member did not agree with our presentation material.”

T – Task:明确目标,如“I need to make sure that all members are involved in delivering the presentation and that we could achieve a high mark for the course.”

A – Action:详细陈述你做了什么,如“I talked to the member in private to ask what his opinions were and ask him to share his ideas with all members.”

R – Results:你的所作所为有何成果,如“We successfully delivered the presentation and obtained the highest mark among all groups.”

在STAR的最后,建议各位在最后加上一条L – Lessons:从这个case中你学到了什么。这是全篇回答画龙点睛的一笔,但不是每个behavioral question都需加上这一条。此外,在准备类似问题时最好准备3到4个big story,而不是small examples。

Tips 4. 关于Mock Interview

强烈建议各位求职中的小伙伴在interview前多多操练,以最好的一面参加正式面试。建议不要请熟悉的朋友陪练mock interview,最好请陌生人或有一定面试经验的朋友,并且正式着装,保持严肃。每次mock interview后询问feedback,为日后改进做准备。

以上即是GOVision为各位总结的四点interview tips,愿在求职路上摸爬滚打的各位能早日找到dream job。若有疑问欢迎关注GOVision wechat主页,GOVision团队随时随地为你解答!
