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?)

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.
The difference between love and like


若你不再喜欢一个人,只需捂上耳朵;若你紧闭双眼,只会将爱化作一滴泪,永存心间。


In front of the person you love, your heart beats faster, but in front of the person you like, you get happy.


In front of the person you love, winter seems like spring, but in front of the person you like, winter is just beautiful winter.


If you look into the eyes of the one you love, you blush, but if you look into the eyes of the person you like, you smile.


If front of the person you love, you can’t say everything on your mind, but in front of the person you like, you can.


In front of the person you love, you tend to get shy, but in front of the person you like, you can show your own self.


You can’t look straight into the eyes of the one you love, but you can always smile into the eyes of the one you like.


When the one you love is crying, you cry with him, but when the one you like is crying, you end up comforting.


The feeling of love starts from the eye, and the feeling of like starts from the ears.


So if you stop liking a person you used to like, all you need to do is cover your ears. But if you try to close your eyes, love turns into a teardrop and remains in your heart forever after.

让我们微笑  Let's Smile

[不指定 07/11/10 17:17 | by admin ]

The thing that goes the farthest toward making life worthwhile,

That costs the least and does the most, is just a pleasant smile.

The smile that bubbles from the heart that loves its fellow men,

Will drive away the clouds of gloom and coax the sun again.

It’s full of worth and goodness, too, with manly kindness blent;

It’s worth a million dollars, and it doesn’t cost a cent.

There is no room for sadness when we see a cheery smile;

It always has the same good look; it’s never out of style;

It nerves us on to try again when failure makes us blue;

The dimples of encouragement are good for me and you.

It pays the highest interest — for it is merely lent;

It’s worth a million dollars, and it doesn’t cost a cent.

A smile comes very easy — you can wrinkle up with cheer,

A hundred times before you can squeeze out a salty tear;

It ripples out, moreover, to the heartstrings that will tug,

And always leaves an echo that is very like a hug.

So, smile away! Folks understand what by a smile is meant;

It’s worth a million dollars, and it doesn’t cost a cent.



引用
那最能赋予生命价值、代价最廉而回报最多的东西,

不过一个令人心畅的微笑而已。

由衷地热爱同胞的微笑,

会驱走心头阴郁的乌云,心底收获一轮夕阳。

它充满价值和美好,混合着坚毅的仁爱之心;

它价值连城却不花一文。

当我们看到喜悦的微笑,忧伤就会一扫而光;

它始终面容姣好,永不落伍;

失败令我们沮丧之时,它鼓励我们再次尝试;

鼓励的笑靥于你我大有裨益。

它支付的利息高昂无比──只因它是种借贷形式;

它价值连城却不花一文。

来一个微笑很容易──嘴角欢快翘起来,

你能百次微笑,可难得挤出一滴泪;

它的涟漪深深波及心弦,

总会留下反响,宛若拥抱。

继续微笑吧!谁都懂得它意味着什么;

它价值连城却不花一文。

友谊的颜色 color of friendship

[不指定 07/10/30 16:11 | by admin ]
Once upon a time the colors of the world started to quarrel.

All claimed that they were the best.

The most important.

The most useful.

The favorite.

Green said:

“Clearly I am the most important. I am the sign of life and ofhope. I was chosen for grass,trees and leaves. Without me,all animals would die. Look over the countryside and you will see that I am in them a jority.”


Blue interrupted:

“You only think about the earth,but consider the sky and the sea.It is the water that is the basis of life and drawn up by the clouds from the deep sea. The sky gives space and peace and serenity. Withoutmy peace,you would all be nothing.”


Yellow chuckled:

“You are all so serious. I bring laughter,gaiety,and warmth intothe world. The sun is yellow,the moon is yellow,the stars are yellow.Every time you look at a sunflower,the whole world starts to smile.Without me there would be no fun.”


Orange started next to blow her trumpet:

“I am the color of health and strength. I may be scarce,but I am precious for I serve the needs of human life. I carry the most important vitamins. Think of carrots,pumpkins,oranges,mangoes,and papayas. I don‘t hang around all the time,but when I fill the sky at sunrise or sunset,my beauty is so striking that no one gives another thought to any of you.”


Red could stand it no longer he shouted out:

“I am the ruler of all of you. I am blood - life‘s blood!I am the color of danger and of bravery. I am willing to fight for a cause. Ibring fire into the blood. Without me,the earth would be as empty asthe moon. I am the color of passion and of love,the red rose,the poinsettia and the poppy.”


Purple rose up to his full height:

He was very tall and spoke with great pomp:“I am the color ofroyalty and power. Kings,chiefs,and bishops have always chosen me for Iam the sign of authority and wisdom. People do not question me!They listen and obey.”


Finally Indigo spoke,much more quietly than all the others,but with just as much determination:

“Think of me. I am the color of silence. You hardly notice me,but without me you all become superficial. I represent thought an dreflection,twilight and deep water. You need me for balance and contrast,for prayer and inner peace.”


And so the colors went on boasting,each convinced of his or herown superiority. Their quarreling became louder and louder. Suddenly there was a startling flash of bright lightening thunder rolled andboomed. Rain started to pour down relentlessly. The colors crouched down in fear,drawing close to one another for comfort.


In the midst of the clamor,rain began to speak:

“You foolish colors,fighting amongst yourselves,each trying to dominate the rest. Don‘t you know that you were each made for a special purpose,unique and different?Join hands with one another and come tome.”


Doing as they were told,the colors united and joined hands. The rain continued:

“From now on,when it rains,each of you will stretch across the skyin a great bow of color as a reminder that you can all live in peace.The Rainbow is a sign of hope for tomorrow.”And so,whenever a good rain washes the world,and a Rainbow appears in the sky,let us remember toappreciate one another.
