9個魔鬼細節決定你的英文履歷的好壞

1. Bad English: A recruiter is looking for an excuse not to consider your application, and bad grammar gives him an excuse to put your application in the special file marked the bin. A badly written CV shows you are disinterested or that you just can ‘t spell. Either way, it’s fatal. Check it yourself, and get someone else to go over your CV – it is easy to miss mistakes in your own copy.

1. 英語水準不高:面試官總會挑你履歷的毛病,糟糕的語法無疑給他機會篩掉你的履歷。履歷寫的不好表面出你對目標職位不是特別感興趣,或者你的做能力不夠。不管是哪一種理由都會對你的求職之路產生致命的影響。你可以自己先檢查一遍,然後讓別人再看一下——有時自己犯的錯誤自身不容易發現。

2. Just the facts: Have you provided relevant contact details – have you entered the right numbers?

2. 檢查個人資訊:你留聯繫方式了嗎?號碼有沒有寫錯?

3. Don’t be passive: Can you solve problems, will you walk into your job running? If you can – great – you’re what your employee is looking for. The question is: have you communicated this with your CV?

3. 不要妄自菲薄:你能處理問題嗎?你能適應工作嗎?如果你的回答時肯定的——那你就是雇主們正在尋找的人選。但是,這些優勢在你的履歷中都體現出來了麼?

4. Don’t be vague: Details help. State what you have achieved, with action verbs, and use numbers where possible.

4. 不說套話:具體的描述可以幫助你達到這一點。用動詞開頭把你的成就都寫在簡歷中,在必要之處用數字說明。

5. Customisation counts: One size does not fill all. Read the job specification carefully. Look for key words in the text the reveal the kind of personality being looked for, and what the employer expects the right candidate to be able to deliver.

5. 為應聘職位量身定制履歷:對所有職位都使用同一版本的簡歷會很沒有針對性。仔細閱讀職位要求,在關鍵字中找出職位需要的性格特質,並且分析雇主希望的理想僱員是怎樣的。

6. Don’t be dull: No one wants to know your duties ; they want to hear your achievements.

6. 不死板沉悶:沒人想知道你的責任感有多強,他們想知道你獲得了哪些成就。

7. Don’t be flabby: Tell your story – but don’t make your CV too long, or cut it down so much it says nothing at all.

7. 精簡至上:在簡歷中描述你自己——但是別讓簡歷太長,也別太短以至於別人甚麼都沒了解到。

8. Design: Make your CV pleasing to the eye. How your CV is presented tells a story about you. Are you visually aware, do you care enough about the job to present the information well? Your CV is sending signals to your employer. Make sure they are the right ones.

8. 注意排版:讓你的履歷看起來整潔美觀。履歷的排版能從側面表現出的性格特質。你是不是注重視覺上的美感、有沒有提供關於應聘職位的個人相關信息?你的簡歷是給雇主提供信息的,所以必須確保你已都將相關優勢列出。

9. Don’t put it off: If you see a job you’re interested in, don’t delay putting together the application – do it the same day and send it the same day.

9. 別猶豫:如果你看到感興趣的職位,應該馬上投出履歷——當天寫當天投。
