新的一年即将来到,也许有很多朋友正准备换一份工作,找寻一份新的心情,下个月我们的主打内容就是关于英语面试,将包括个人信息介绍、教育背景、工作经验等各个方面的基本句型和对话,敬请期待。

    面试在求职过程中,可以说是压力最大的一个环节,尤其是对大多数英语并不是十分灵光可又盼望进入大公司的朋友们来说,这不仅是考验,也是煎熬。面对外国老板连珠炮似的提问,如果能回答得从容不迫、简明扼要,恰当中肯,而且合乎老外的口味,那么肯定会大大增加你的录取机会。

    【事先3项准备】:

    1. 对目标公司所在地、规模、在全球的活动概况等要事先有所了解,包括总公司在国内设立分公司的时间、业绩表现、经营规模,以及今后打算开展的业务等,若能得到业界的评价更好。如无法得到书面资料,也要设法从该公司或其他同业中获得情报。

    2. 面试时自我介绍内容应强调应征的动机以及想应征的岗位,因此收集好相关岗位的情报,自我介绍时才能胸有成竹,切合主题。

    3. 准备好所有证书材料,譬如与专业能力相关的资格证书,或参加培训的资料,最好和应征职务有直接关联,不但可证明自己在这一方面所做的努力,也表示具有这个潜能。

   【谈吐3P原则】:

    自我介绍时应该记住“3P原则”:Positive(自信),Personal(个性),Pertinent(中肯)。

    谈吐自信,就是要积极地进行自我肯定,让面试人充分了解你的优点与潜能。突出个性,就是要把自己与众不同的特点发挥出来,强调自己的专业与能力。语气中肯,就是要实事求是,不要言过其实,夸夸其谈,也不要涉及和自己无关的事情。

    自我介绍应简洁明了,给面试人留下思路清晰、反应快捷、逻辑性强的印象。自我介绍时间不宜太长,话不宜太多,最好控制在五分钟之内。不要一谈起自己就口若悬河,滔滔不绝,以免言多语失。另外,在自我介绍时应避免过多地使用“I”(我),不要每个句子一开头就冒出一个“I”字,给人留下自我标榜、以自我为中心的印象。

    灵活的应聘者往往会把“我”开头的话,变成“你”字打头。例如,面试人说:Would you please say something about yourself?(请你谈谈自己的情况好吗?)应聘者则说:Do you want me to talk about my personal life or to say something about the job?(你想让我谈谈我个人的生活呢,还是与这份工作有关的问题?)这样,你的谈话就把面试人摆了进去。这种谈话的方式所产生的效果是不言而喻的。面试毕竟是面试人与应聘者互相沟通的一种场合,应聘者时常把面试人摆进自己的谈话当中去,自然而然就起到了互相沟通的作用。

   【围绕3方面表现】:

    回答问题时口齿要清晰、语调适中。内容要有条理、避免重复。介绍工作经历采用倒序,从最近一份工作谈起,着重强调有利于新工作的职务经历。最好能说明曾担任何种职务、实际成绩、业绩等,以及自己的工作对原来公司的影响。凡和此次应征不相关的内容,尽量避免提及。话题紧扣以下3方面来展现自己的优势。

   1. 能力。当你知道招聘单位目前急于用人时,首先把自己的专长讲足说够,然后顺理成章地得出结论:I think your unit needs a man like me.(我想,贵单位需要象我这样的人才。)用这样的句式,让面试人认为你是站在他们的立场上说话,在替他们的发展考虑问题,于是更容易接受你。陈述自己的任职资格时,可以这么开头:I’m qualified for the job because……(我能胜任这项工作,是因为……)接着陈述理由。当面试人在审视你究竟能不能胜任此职时,参照的标准已不再是他心目中的标准,而是你列举的理由。

    2. 业绩。外国公司面试喜欢用事实说话,为了证明你的能力,你可以把过去的经历联系起来,说明你曾经为以前的公司解决过跟现在雇主所面临的类似问题:I explored Shanghai market and sold 50,000 sets in one year.(我开发了上海市场,一年销售出去5万套。)

    3. 诚意。某个问题发表完见解之后,可以附带加上一句:I’d like to hear your opinion.(我很想听听你的意见。)这句话表明了你对面试人的尊敬,很容易使他(她)产生亲切感。当面试人在试探你的应聘诚意时,应该及时表态:So far as that is concerned, you must have understood my determination.(谈到这里,您一定已经明白我的决心。)问些与工作内容相关的问题,能表现你对这份工作的兴趣。如:What other responsibilities do you think this job will include? (您觉得这份工作所包含的职责还有哪些?)
     现在的学生们,经常就是面对电脑一整天,少则3、5小时,多则10小时,眼睛长时间面对显示器,就会出现发干、发酸、发涩的不良反映,进而导致视力下降,严重的还可能引起多种疾病。因此,做做简单的眼部运动,能有效的缓解眼部疲劳、干涩,保证眼睛的健康。

1、快速眨眼,同时做深呼吸。
2、闭上眼睛,把拇指放在太阳穴上,用食指从鼻子往太阳穴方向,平稳地触压眼窝上缘和眼窝下缘。
3、紧闭双眼,将双眼贴近点着的台灯,保持大约15厘米的距离,轻轻左右摇摆头,使眼睛沐浴在台灯的温热中。
4、闭上双眼,用热毛巾捂30秒,然后换一条冷毛巾,捂30秒,重复多次。

另外:
电脑靠墙放,不仅易受潮气的袭击,对人的健康也有危害

电脑紧贴墙壁摆放,使用者抬起头时,映入眼帘的就是一堵墙,这种情况下,眼睛不但无法得到良好的调节和放松,还会加重视神经的紧张和疲劳,长此以往会导致近视,或使近视程度进一步加深。长时间近距离看到的都是一面墙壁,还会导致大脑不断接收到紧张信号,令人们出现头昏脑涨、疲劳、焦虑等一系列不适的症状。

所以,电脑最好摆放在窗户边,或让屏幕和墙壁之间的距离在1米以上。如果必须把电脑靠墙壁放置,不妨在后面的墙壁上贴一些绿色或蓝色的画(如森林或大海),这些冷色调的墙纸进入视线,传递到大脑后,可以使情绪得到镇静,并有效地缓解焦虑和疲劳症状,使人心境变得开阔。

When the wind blows

[不指定 07/12/30 13:46 | by admin ]
   Years ago a farmer owned land along the Atlantic seacoast. He constantly advertised for hired hands. Most people were reluctant to work on farms along the Atlantic. They dreaded the awful storms that raged across the Atlantic,wreaking havoc on the buildings and crops. As the farmer interviewed applicants for the job,he received a steady stream of refusals.

Finally,a short,thin man,well past middle age,approached the farmer. “Are you a good farmhand?”the farmer asked him.

“Well,I can sleep when the wind blows,” answered the little man.

Although puzzled by this answer,the farmer,desperate for help,hired him. The little man worked well around the farm,busy from dawn to dusk,and the farmer felt satisfied with the man s work.

Then one night the wind howled loudly in from offshore. Jumping out of bed,the farmer grabbed a lantern and rushed next door to the hired hand s sleeping quarters. He shook the little man and yelled,“Get up! A storm is coming! Tie things down before they blow away!”

The little man rolled over in bed and said firmly,“No sir. I told you,I can sleep when the wind blows.”

Enraged by the response,the farmer was tempted to fire him on the spot. Instead,he hurried outside to prepare for the storm. To his amazement,he discovered that all of the haystacks had been covered with tarpaulins. The cows were in the barn,the chickens were in the coops,and the doors were barred. The shutters were tightly secured. Everything was tied down. Nothing could blow away.

The farmer then understood what his hired hand meant,so he returned to his bed to also sleep while the wind blew.

MORAL: When you re prepared,spiritually,mentally,and physically,you have nothing to fear.

M: Why did you change your mind?

W: No, I’ve been a freelance designer for quite a long time now. Since 1988, in fact.
M: So, does that mean you design for several different companies now?

M: What have you been designing for them?
W: Mostly handbags and small leather goods.

M: So, Claire, you are into drama.
W: Yes, I’ve a master’s degree in Drama and Theater. At the moment I am hoping to get onto a PHD program.  
M: What excites you about drama?
W: I find it’s a communicative way to study people and you learn how to read people in drama. So usually I can understand what people are saying, even though they might be lying.
M: That would be useful.
W: Yeah, it’s very useful for me as well. I am an English lecturer, so I use a lot of drama in my classes, such as role-plays. And I ask my students to create mini-dramas. They really respond well. At the moment I am hoping to get onto a PHD course. I would like to concentrate on Asian drama and try to bring Asian theater to the world attention. I don’t know how successful I will be, but here is hoping.
M: Oh, I’m sure you will be successful. Now, Claire, what do you do for stage fright?
W: Ah, stage fright. Well, many actors have that problem. I get stage fright every time I am going to teach a new class. The night before, I usually can’t sleep.
M: What? For teaching?
W: Yes! I get really bad stage fright, but the minute I step into the classroom or get onto the stage, it just all falls into place. Then I just feel like “Yeah, this is what I mean to do.” and I am fine.
M: Well, that’ cool.

23. Why does woman find studying drama and theatre useful?
