如何搞定面试

作者 Alena

就要成功了。简历已经被公司收录,离理想的工作只有一步之遥。你和理想之间的距离,只差面试环节(有时候是多次面试)。怎样准备才能让面试万无一失呢?

首先,众所周知的一些细节,比如着装整洁和保持良好姿态。除此之外,还要让自己在众多竞选者里脱颖而出。

完美的面试实际上需要三个步骤。第一步是面试前的准备工作;第二步是面试时的表现;第三步是面试后要跟进面试结果。如果你对外企工作文化还不是很熟悉,那么你需要知道如何在这三步中做到游刃有余。恭喜你,我们将在下面手把手教你怎么做!

 

面试前:

 

1.准备好自己的故事

很多求职者在面试时都滔滔不绝地说自己的经历,比如大学期间的工作或活动。他们经常忽略了面试和回答之间的关联——换句话说,你叙述的经历应该与你为什么对这份工作感兴趣联系在一起。

面试官看简历时已经了解你的过往经历。你在面试里,要补充简历未提及的方面,表现出自己的活力-能够让面试官记住你! 回想那些对你影响深重的人和事,促使你应聘这份工作的梦想和经历,这份工作为什么打动你。这些都是在面试官前展示真实自我的要点。

 

2.为一些常见的面试问题准备答案

有些问题会逼迫你审视自己的性格和过去的决定。这类型比较常见的问题如下:

·你最大的弱点是什么?

·你怎么解决最近遇到的问题?

你应该诚实地回答这些问题,同时在回答里加入一些细节和情景。雇主希望看到你了解自己的技能和缺点,他们也希望看到你能在压力下保持创造力和应变能力。

 

面试过程中:

 

1.说出你的思路

有时面试官会问一些尖锐的问题。你可以花点时间整理回答的思路,但不要沉默!如果你需要时间构思一个很长的答案,那就抓住这个机会,大声地把你的思路说出来,通过你的思维过程来引导面试官。这让他们更深入地了解你的知识、思维和经验。这也是展示你思维能力的机会。

另外,不要害怕让面试官重复或解释问题。

 

2.提出有营养的问题

在面试的最后,面试官通常都会让你向他们提几个问题。不要问肤浅的问题(你喜欢在这家公司工作吗?),把这看作表现的机会,显示你已经研究过公司、为面试做了充分准备。在公司官网和媒体报道里可以找到答案的问题不要问。你可以问这类问题:

·过去几个月里你在这里做过的最喜欢的事情是什么?

·你可以谈一下公司文化以及公司如何保持这种文化吗?

这两个问题都体现了你有认真研究过公司,并且真诚地希望如果更好地在公司工作。

 

面试之后

 

1. 发送一封面试跟进邮件

给面试官发一封个性化的邮件进行面试的跟进了解这是非常重要的。最好在面试后24小时内发出去。

这封信不仅是感谢他们抽出宝贵的时间来面试你,同时也是提醒他们推进你的应聘进程。你也可以把这个举动,当做弥补面试缺憾的机会,包括你忘记说的个人经历,或者是忘记问的问题。

即使这次你没有得到这个职位,感谢信也会在将来这个职位空缺时给你带来机会。

祝你好运!

How to Nail the Interview

Written by Alena
(edited by Logan and Zac)

You’re almost there. Your resume has been accepted, and you’re one step closer to landing the job you’ve been dreaming of. All that’s left between you and your goal is the interview (or, in some cases, interviews). So, what’s the best way to prepare for a job interview?

First off, there are the tips that everyone knows, like dressing accordingly and maintaining good posture. But what else can you do to stand out as the best candidate for the job?

Nailing the interview is actually a three-step process. The first consists of your preparations before the interview. The second is how you act during the interview. Finally, the third consists of how you follow up after the interview. If you aren’t fully familiar with the work culture at a Western company, you need to know how to navigate each of these steps. Fortunately, we have you covered with our simple breakdown below!

 

Before the interview:

 

1. Prepare your story.

Many candidates tend to rattle off their experiences during the job interview, such as previous jobs or activities they participated in during university. They often leave out the context—in other words, everything that gives meaning to why they want this job.

If your interviewer wants a list of your experiences, they can read your CV. Your role in the interview is to fill in the gaps and present yourself as a dynamic personality—someone that the interviewer will remember after the interview is over! Think about the things and people who have influenced you, your personal goals or experiences that have led you to this job, and why this job moves you. These are all important points that show the interviewer who you really are.

 

2. Prepare for common interview questions.

Some of these interview questions will force you to examine your personality and past decisions. Here are some examples of common interview questions:

·What is your biggest weakness?

·How did you resolve a recent problem?

You should answer these questions honestly, but make sure you include details and context in your answers. Employers want to see that you are aware of your own skills and shortcoming, and they also want to see that you can be creative and resourceful in challenging situations.

 

During the interview:

 

1. Think out loud.

Sometimes interviewers will ask tough analytical questions. It’s OK to take a moment to put together your answer, but don’t stay quiet! If you’re formulating a long answer, take the opportunity to think out loud and walk the interviewer through your thought process. This gives them a chance to have more insight into your breadth of knowledge, thinking and experience. It will also give you the opportunity to demonstrate how you think.

Also, don’t be afraid to ask the interviewer to repeat or clarify the question.

 

2. Ask informed questions.

At the end of an interview, your interviewer will often give you the opportunity to ask them questions. Rather than asking basic questions (“Why do you like working here?”), use this moment as an opportunity to showcase your research and preparation. Don’t ask about anything that you could answer yourself by looking on their website or social media. Here are some questions you can consider asking:

·“What’s your favorite thing you’ve done here over the last few months?”

·“Can you talk about the company culture and how the company holds to it?”

Both of these questions show that you’re invested in the company and genuinely want to better understand what working there would be like.

 

After the interview:


1. Send a personal follow-up.

It’s very important to follow up your interview with a personalized email to the interviewer. It’s best to send your thank-you email within twenty-four hours of your interview.

This email not only expresses your gratitude for their time, but also reminds the interviewer of you and opens up a window for future dialogue. You can also use it as an opportunity to include any information you feel you left out of the interview, either information d your relevant experience or a question you forgot to ask.

Even if you don’t get the position, your thank-you note can be an opportunity for you to hear about job openings in the future.

Good Luck!
