三、 Experience 关于工作经验的问题
9. Would you briefly describe this company to me? 介绍一下你的原单位， 好吗？
问题分析： 当老外提出这个问题的时候， 他心里的疑问是： “这个公司我从来没有听说过， 是否是个名不见经传的小公司？”所以， 在向老外介绍自己工作单位的时候， 要着重强调公司的优点， 规模大的强调规模， 人数多的强调人数。如果你所在的公司业务总量很小， 你可以告诉面试官， 业务总量不大但是平均到每个员工的业务量却相当惊人！
回答示范： “广盛发”， the name means “a big, prosperous company”, hehe, although it’s not really a very big company. But, it’s true that the company is quite prosperous. It specializes in exporting women’s shoes. With only 10 employees so far the turnover last year was up to 15,000,000 RMB. I am one of the three customer service officers, with the responsibility of order taking, tracking and general customer service roles. Due to the limited number of staff, we all work more than 10 hours a day, 7 days a week in busy season.?
点评： 很明显， 这个回答既体现了自己原来的公司的规模， 也暗示了自己能够?#35270;?#32321;忙工作的特点。
10. Would you describe your typical working day? 请你描述一下自己典型的一天的工作吧。
问题分析： 在这个问题?#24076;?面试官希望捕捉到的信息点是： 第一， 这个家伙原来干的工作和我们现在这份工作到底有多少是类似的？第二， 他在原来工作单位表现到?#33258;?#20040;样？所以， 在描述自己的工作内容时， 要注意突出两个信息点： 第一， 用事实突出自己繁忙并且?#23548;?#19981;错的优点； 第二， 要着意强调一下和所申请工作类似的内容。
回答示范： Yes. I would arrive at office half an hour earlier as my boss often gives me a lot of work once he comes in, and I have to be ready for it. My responsibilities are mainly to assist the sales manager and representatives with order tracking, stock reporting, document preparation and translation, using Excel, Word and PowerPoint. When the reps are on a business trip, I will deal with their share. Two thirds of my work involves computers, working on tables and forms precisely and quickly. The rest of time is to take care of the managers and reps, you know, do what they need me to.
点评： 用事实说明自己是个敬业的人。在描述工作内容的时候， 有细节性描述， 也有总结性描述， 非常清晰。
11. Why do you want to leave your job? 你为什么要离职？
回答示范1： To be honest, the reason I quit is that I am not pleased by my current job. My current work is in a vocational high school. Maybe I have to explain a bit more here. In China, vocational high schools are designed for the less-advanced students or the ones wanting work instead of going to university to further their education. As a result, the social status and the pay in vocational high schools are not at all satisfactory. I can never become a professor in this school. So, although teaching makes me happy, I have to leave this job because I can’t have long-term career development here.?
点评1： 相当一部分申请人辞职的原因都是为了“长远的职业发展”， 因为在目前的工作中“看不到前途和未来”或者“缺乏挑战和创新”。这些其实都是合理的理由， 但是， 务必要把看不到前途和未来的原因解释清楚， 要让面试官知道， 没有前途不是你个人能力缺乏所致， 而确实?#24378;?#35266;因素使然。此外， 在涉及中国特殊现象的时候， 比如职业高中教育， 比如中等专科学校教育等等， 要把具体的情况解释清楚， 否则， 老外绝对不会了解中专教师为什么不像大学教师那么爽。
回答示范2： Mainly for the higher pay. I have been serving as an accountant for this joint venture for nearly 3 years and my salary increased from 1,800 to 2,300, a fair raise actually. In the last two performance evaluations, I got two Bs in a row. I can earn 3,000 only by becoming a director, which is almost impossible because the current one is stable and performs well; he is not likely to leave. But of course, I am not working only for money. Changing jobs is asking for trouble. I am doing so for my career. This position is similar to my current one, and the company is a quite large, suitable one for long-term development. So, here I am.?
点评2： 一个中肯的回答， 既诚实地告诉面试官自己似乎为钱而跳槽， 也告诉了他自己在原岗位上没?#24515;?#21040;更高的薪水并非是工作表现不好， 而是受到了公司规章制度的限制。同时， 也强调了自己已经在原单位效忠3年的良好记录。不错！
回答示范3： The former company hasn’t done well in the past 2 years, they have to make some redundancy and our department is lucky enough to be one of them. What a pity.
点评3： 公司裁员很少发生， 不过如果事实如此， 你需要解释出自己被裁减的原因是因为整个部门被关闭， 而不是你个人表现欠?#35759;?#34987;裁减。同时， 展示了一下自己的幽默， 很好。
回答示范4： Frankly speaking, I want to leave the job simply because I’m attracted by the position you offer. Compared with my current employer, Global Market is so much more renowned, offering a secure job and a long-term development. My current employer now offers an okay salary, but the career opportunities here are very limited because the size of business is relatively small. I think you can understand my choice.
点评4： 很真实， 90%的人都是为了“更好的发展”而离职， 不妨实话实说也罢。
回答示范5： I quit the job to study English. In my last job I should use English to communicate with foreigners but frankly speaking, my English wasn’t good enough. I knew I could perform better if my English was better. Finally, after two years of struggling with English, I decided to quit the job and recharge myself. I went to New Oriental School to study English.?
点评5： 确实有很多人辞职学英语。如果你要使用这个万无一失的答案， 请务必确定一点： 你的英语?#27426;?#24050;经相当合格了！否则无疑是自暴其短。
12. Describe the employee you most enjoy working with. 你最喜欢和什么样的同事一起合作？
问题分析： 在这个问题?#24076;?面试官希望了解的是： 第一， 这份工作是否会令你开心； 第二， 你所欣赏的人往往就是你的影子(心理学家如是说)， 比如说， 如果你说自己欣赏爽直的人， 往往你就是这样一个人！
回答示范1： I enjoy working with straightforward people, partly because I am a straightforward person myself. I hope my colleagues will offer their honest suggestions and even criticisms to me. Frankly speaking, I am not very comfortable with those people who are too sensitive and always hesitate to express themselves.?
点评1： 突出了自己的直爽的性格， 很好。
回答示范2： I enjoy working with positive-minded people who don’t complain too much. I find it uncomfortable to work with those who always complain. In my opinion, we either need to make improvements or accept the facts. Complaining is a total waste of time.?
点评2： 这是一个令人喜欢的回答， 因为任?#25105;?#20010;公司里?#21152;?#22823;量的“怨?#24615;?#22899;”， 令人反感却无可奈何。如果能多招聘几个?#25226;?#20809;?#20449;?#36827;公司， 岂不美哉。
回答示范3： I enjoy working with those who are action makers. I don’t like to work with big talkers or those who are very slow to react. I am a quick person myself, so I prefer to work with the people of the same kind.?
点评3： 大家都喜欢风风火火的人， 只要不忙中出错就好。
回答示范4： Well, I like to work with those who are good at planning because they can always make a strong team with me. I am a detail person, and I need to work with big picture planners to achieve the best results.?
点评4： 善于利用别人的长处弥补自己的不足， 不错。
