  • 示範最佳回答:

1.I have an extremely strong work ethic. When I work on a project, I don’t want just to meet deadlines. Rather, I prefer to finish the project well ahead of schedule. Last year, I even earned a bonus for completing my two most recent reports one week early.

我有很強烈的工作倫理觀念。當我進行一項計畫的時候我不希望只是在截止期限之前完成就好,我反而偏好超前進度完成計畫。去年我甚至還因為超前一周完成兩項近期報告而贏得獎金。

 

2.I am a skilled salesman with over 10 years of experience in the automobile industry. I have outperformed my sales goals every quarter since I began to work for my current employe.

我是經驗豐富的銷售人員,在汽車業的工作經驗超過10年。在目前公司每季都超越銷售目標。

 

3.I am proud of my customer service skills and my ability to resolve what could be difficult situations. With five years of experience as a customer service representative, I have learned to effectively understand and settle customer issues. Besides, I have strong communication skills, which helps me get along well with customers, team members, and executives.

我以自己的客服技巧及應對棘手狀況的能力自豪。五年的客服專員的經驗中,我學會有效了解並且解決客戶的問題。此外,我有很強的溝通技巧,能夠幫助我應對顧客得宜,並和團隊成員、主管們相處融洽。

 

2. What are your weaknesses?  你的缺點是什麼?

這個問題可能有點難回答,因為答得不好就會過分自暴其短。可回答一個跟應徵職缺較不相關的(less irrelevant)短處(shortcoming),或者過去曾經有什麼樣的缺點,向面試官說明你是如何改進這個缺點,並且指出你現在進步了多少。另外一種好的回答方式是把缺點化做優點。

  • 示範最佳回答:

1.Being organized wasn’t my greatest strength, but I implemented a time management system that really helped my organization skills.
過去組織能力不是我的最強的強項,但是我實行了一個時間管理方法,實際改善了我的組織能力。

 

2.I like to ensure that my work is flawless, so I tend to perhaps spend a little too much time double-checking it. However, I’ve struck a good balance by applying an approach to make everything done accurately the first time.

我喜歡確保我的工作是完美的,所以我常也許有點花太多時間重覆檢查我的工作內容。然而,藉由應用一套方法來確保所有工作內容在第一時間都已正確完成,我已達到一個良好的平衡點。

 

3. Why should we hire you? 我們為什麼該雇用你?

面試官也可能用另一種問法來問同樣的問題:What makes you the best fit for this position?也就是你為什麼是最適合這個工作的人選?回答這個問題就像是自我推銷,簡單扼要地陳述自己過去的專業技能或工作成就(accomplishments),有自信地告訴對方自己最大的賣點(selling points),突顯個人與眾不同之處,也別忘了重申自己對所應徵工作和公司的興趣和嚮往。

  • 示範最佳回答:

1.Your company provides many services that I have had experience with in a variety of areas. I believe that my familiarity with the industry would make me the best candidate for this position.

我對於貴公司提供的多項服務在各方面我都有相關經驗。我相信我對這個產業的熟悉度足以讓我成為這個職位的最佳人選。

 

2.I have first-rate administrative skills and I believe I’d be an asset for the office. My skill set would be a perfect match for what you’re looking for.

我有一流的行政能力,我相信我會成為對公司有利的資產。我的專業能力完全符合貴公司的需求。

3.I understand that you are looking for a sales executive who is able to effectively manage and lead more than a dozen employees. In my twelve years of experience as a sales manager, I have acquired strong motivational and team-building skills.

我明白您正在尋求的銷售主管必須能夠有效管理並領導十幾位員工。在我擔任銷售主管的十二年經驗中,我培養出很強的鼓舞和建立團隊的能力。

I was twice awarded manager-of-the-year for encouraging the employees to not just meet but even surpass quarterly sales targets. If I am granted the opportunity to work for your company, I will bring my leadership abilities and strategies for achieving profit gains to this position.

我曾經以激勵員工達成、甚至超越季銷售目標,而獲頒兩次年度經理獎。如果有榮幸為貴公司效力,我將把我的團隊領導能力和獲利策略應用在這個職位上。
