面试的英文需要运用一系列比较专业的词汇,并且善用几种时态,如说明过去的工作要用过去时,以前取得的成绩要用过去完成时等等。这里我们就讲讲什么时候该说什么。

当你走进雇主的办公室,先介绍自己,握手,微笑很重要。此后第一句话往往是打开局面的,通常面试人员会问:

How are you today?

Did you have any trouble finding us?

What do you think of the weather lately?

他们的语调可能会很友好,因为他们也希望你放松,尽量发挥你自己的水平。这时候你要有简单爽快而有礼貌的回应,如:

对方问:How are you today?

好的回答是:I’m fine thank you, and you? 或 I’m well thank you.

不好的回答是:So, so 或 OK 或Not so well

面试过程中最重要的部分是表述自己的学历,工作经验和资历。这些是和你应聘工作直接相关的。

学历方面:记住你的学历是在以前完成的,要用过去时态。例如:

I attended the University of Beijing from 1990 to 1993.

I graduated with a degree in civic engineering.

如果你现在还是学生,那么应用现在时态,例如:

I am currently studying at the University of York and will graduate with a degree in Economics in the coming spring.

I am studying English at the Seneca Community College.

记得要告诉雇主,你仍然在不断改善你的英语,比如你每周还上几小时的英语课。因为英文不是你的母语,他们对此可能会有顾虑。

工作经验和资历无疑是面试中最重要的部分。所以雇主很想知道个中的许多细节。雇主想知道你到底做过什么,做得好不好。因此你不要谦虚,把最好的成绩和方面表达出来。

当谈到你目前在做的工作时你可以用现在完成进行时,表示你不但一直在这样做,而且将来也会持续下去:

ABC Engineering Inc. have employed me for the last 3 years as a salesperson. I have been creating customer contacts for 6 months.

但谈到以前的工作时用过去时:

I was employed by Jackson’s Ltd. from 1995 to 1997 as a office manager.

I worked as a production supervisor at the Heitz while I was living in New York.

当谈及以前的工作成绩和表现,尽量用一些主动的,积极的,令人印象深刻的动词,比用名词或者系动词词组效果好。比如与其说My job is to assist the senior scientist with unit testing不如说I assisted the senior scientist with unit testing.与其说I was responsible for the business needs analysis不如说I analyzed the business needs.
