ZT] 加拿大面试:话不能太多 正确使用身体语言
ZT] 加拿大面试:话不能太多 正确使用身体语言

来加拿大这几年,前后经过的面试有二、三十次了,失败的几乎是80%以上,有一段时间我绝望得甚至想每天开车去多伦多做义工以换取工作经验,但皇天不负苦 心人,经历了无数次失败,经过了无数次总结,今天我终于进了自己心仪的公司,我愿把自己的经验写出来和更多朋友分享,并祝愿大家都能尽快找到一份好工作。

  还是要诚实

  要想得到面试的机会,一份好的简历是不可少的,关于怎么写简历,我一方面上网查询,另一方面也咨询了不少人的意见,有这样一个建议曾经很打动我的心: 骗你没商量。也就是说,尽量把自己往别人的要求上靠,会的要说很会,不会的说会一点,这样人家才会考虑你。可是实际操作起来并不那么容易,我是一个不惯说 谎的人,我可以尽量使自己的简历往别人的要求上靠,但不会的就是不会,如果欺骗别人,眼睛首先就出卖了我;另一方面我也不象有些人那样聪明,即使从没有接 触过的东西,只要花上几天时间就能说得头头是道。不过这样一来,也许我的面试机会没有那么多,可至少被聘用后,我不会每天提心吊胆自己的骗术被揭穿。

  我认识一个人,她来了不久就在一家日本人开的餐馆里找到了waitress的工作,大家都羡慕得不得了,这个工作因为拿小费,可以少交税,收入实际很 好。她在国内从来没有做过相关的工作,可她说自己有一年的工作经验。照她想,这份工作容易得很,又有培训,还不是一下就会了。可是上班以后才明白,除了服 务顾客,还要做点打扫、帮厨的工作。结果她一样都没做好,店里的几十种寿司和生鱼片,在她看来都是一样的,一张桌子那么多客人,她也不懂怎样记住每个人点 的什么;帮厨的时候,她只顾自己手上的活,却没想到脚边总有人在杀鱼,因为自己窜来窜去,别人只好小心自己锋利的刀子不会碰到她的脚;最糟糕的是,快打佯 时打扫厕所的时候,她记得自己把门象别人那样支开着,可等她拿个东西回来,门关上了,她想都没想就闯进去了,正好一个男顾客在撒尿。可想而知她当天就被解 雇了。

  有些东西会就是会,不会装也装不象,否则最后被开掉,失去工作是小事,可自尊心被打击则不是短时间内就能恢复的。听说她后来又做过不同的工作,可waitress再也没试过。

  诚实是一种美德,在哪里都一样,加拿大人最恨的就是撒谎,你可以犯错,但决不能骗人,而且骗一次,就会被定性,再翻身就难了。

  话不能太多

  我其实是一个很沉默的人,有时候一天都不会说上5分钟的话,可是面试的时候,因为我太急于得到这份工作,总是想多说一点,让别人多了解我一点。面试的 人看起来特别和蔼可亲,简直是套话专家,我一感动就把心掏出来了,结果说了很多不必要的废话,最终没有得到工作。有几次特别让我难忘。

  一次是应聘HP在新加坡的公司,其实我们开始谈得很投机,我简直可以感觉到这个Offer就非我莫属了,结果他问了我一个问题,“你这么好的条件,为什么不考虑去美国或加拿大呢?”我太老实,又因为前面谈得很好,就多说了几句,说我的确申请了,可是英语不太好。他听了以后,沉默了半晌,然后就把我打发 走了。在他看来,英语只是时间问题,可如果他雇佣了我,把我培养成熟手,我的英语也好了,然后我这煮熟的鸭子也飞了。

  还有一次我其实很有竞争力,那家公司和我以前做的几乎一样,只不过我们当时做的比他们要高明一些,面试我的人是负责技术的,我们谈得很投机,而且他招 的不只一个人,我相信自己是很有竞争力的。又是到了最后,一切技术问题问完了,我都答得不错,他信口来了一句,“你是怎么离开那家公司的?”我又是话多, 告诉他那家公司怎么倒闭的,他可能是认为兆头不好吧,半天不说话,最后也是没有下文了。

  其实后来我想通了,人家招人不过是找个干活的,只要听话,肯干就行了,根本不重视我的声音,再说我的英语不好,说多、错多、漏洞多,最好是做一个微笑的听众。

  真实的谎言

  面试通常分专业部门和人力资源部门两部分,我最怕人力资源的那些问题,因为文化背景的不同,我们的答案往往不合他们的要求。可是我因为毕业后就留校, 出国前从来没有这方面的经验,再加上平时和别人打交道不多,所以到这时候我的弱点就显露出来了。比较典型的几次失败是这样的。人家问我的优点是什么,我考 虑了很久,最后说自己有点完美主义,在写程序的时候,总是希望尽善尽美,我的意思是,自己这样,岂不是能更好地满足客户要求?可是在这里不这么认为,我完 美,意味着我苛求,而我的这种性格最终会导致我和同事相处紧张,他们认为没有完成不了的工作,而气氛是最重要的,有这么一个人气氛肯定是好不起来了。其实 回答这类问题的时候,我完全可以四两拨千斤,说优点是上手快,易与人相处等,缺点是英语还有待提高等等这类冠冕堂皇的语言。

  还有一次是问我为什么要跳槽,我也是实话说因为待遇好一点。这里我可以说因为大公司学习的机会多。最有文化冲突的一个问题是:如果公司要我加班,可是 我又答应家人带她们出去吃饭了,我该怎么办,我的回答是当然加班,这样的工作狂在国内无疑是最受欢迎的,可在这里,特别是经历了9.11,人们把家庭看得 很重要,我的回答简直就是告诉别人自己是个没人性的家伙,可是如果我要回答不加班,那么又完全置公司不顾,这样显然也是行不通的,所以比较好的答案是,和 上司商量,看是否有别的解决方案,如果不行,和家人商量,取得谅解,并尽快用别的方式补偿这次的失约。

  可人力资源的问题永远不是一样的,在这个公司总结了失败的教训,去别的公司又错在另一些问题上了。而我就败在一次次的不灵活上了。

  正确使用身体语言

  面试中,给对方留下一个好的印象很重要,正确的身体语言比任何表白都有效。比如你说自己有幽默感,可是面部表情严肃,人家的一个笑话没有给合适的回 答,就很难说服别人。再比如你过分殷勤,那些人就翘盘子了,可是过分冷淡又让人以为你无所谓,这里面的度一定要拿捏好,为了训练自己,我甚至花时间对镜子 练习自己的表情。

  说了这么多,也并不等于说有了过硬的专业技术和丰富的面试经验就会找到工作,还有运气,面试的人如果和你不投缘,他也不会给你这个机会,招谁都一样, 他自然要找个自己顺眼的,遇到这种情况,千万不要灰心,不论怎样,千万别对自己丧失信心,上帝关了这扇门,一定会在别处为你开了窗。







TelephoneInterview Tips & Techniques 电话面试-高淘汰率的筛选
Telephone Interview Tips &Techniques
Employers use telephone interviews as a way of identifying and recruitingcandidates for employment. Phone interviews are often used to screen candidatesin order to narrow the pool of applicants who will be invited for in-personinterviews. They are also used as way to minimize the expenses involved ininterviewing out-of-town candidates.

While you're actively job searching, it's important to be prepared for a phoneinterview on a moment's notice. You never know when a recruiter or a networkingcontact might call and ask if you have a few minutes to talk.

Be Prepared to Interview

Prepare for a phone interview just as you would for a regular interview.Compile a list of your strengths and weaknesses, as well as a list of answersto typical interview questions.

In addition, plan on being prepared for a phone conversation about yourbackground and skills.

    * Keep your resume in clear view, on the top of your desk, ortape it to the wall near the phone, so it's at your fingertips when you need toanswer questions.
    * Have a short list of your accomplishments available to review.
    * Have a pen and paper handy for note taking.
    * Turn call-waiting off so your call isn't interrupted.
    * If the time isn't convenient, ask if you could talk at anothertime and suggest some alternatives.
    * Clear the room - evict the kids and the pets. Turn off thestereo and the TV. Close the door.
    * Unless you're sure your cell phone service is going to beperfect, consider using a landline rather than your cell phone to avoid adropped call or static on the line.

Practice Interviewing

Talking on the phone isn't as easy as it seems. I've always found it's helpfulto practice. Have a friend or family member conduct a mock interview and taperecord it so you can see how you sound over the phone. Any cassette recorderwill work. You'll be able to hear your "ums" and "uhs" and"okays" and you can practice reducing them from your conversationalspeech. Also rehearse answers to those typical questions you'll be asked.

During the Phone Interview

    * Don't smoke, chew gum, eat, or drink.
    * Do keep a glass of water handy, in case you need to wet yourmouth.
    * Smile. Smiling will project a positive image to the listenerand will change the tone of your voice.
    * Speak slowly and enunciate clearly.
    * Use the person's title (Mr. or Ms. and their last name.) Onlyuse a first name if they ask you to.
    * Don't interrupt the interviewer.
    * Take your time - it's perfectly acceptable to take a moment ortwo to collect your thoughts.
    * Give short answers.
    * Remember your goal is to set-up a face-to-face interview. Afteryou thank the interviewer ask if it would be possible to meet in person.

After the Interview:

    * Take notes about what you were asked and how you answered.
    * Remember to say "thank you." Follow with a thank younote which reiterates your interest in the job.

What  is a Behavioral Interview and Behavioral Interview Questions and Answers
  
What is a Behavioral Interview and  Behavioral Interview Questions and AnswersWhatis a behavioral interview?  Behavioral based interviewing isinterviewing based on discovering how the  interviewee acted in specificemployment-related situations. The logic is that  how you behaved in thepast will predict how you will behave in the future  i.e. pastperformance predicts future performance.Traditional Interview vs.  Behavioral Interview
  In a traditional interview, you will be asked a series of questionswhich  typically have straight forward answers like "What are yourstrengths and  weaknesses?" or "What major challenges and problems didyou face?  How did you handle them?" or "Describe a typical work week."
  In a behavioral interview, an employer has decided what skills areneeded in  the person they hire and will ask questions to find out ifthe candidate has  those skills.
  
  
  Instead of asking how you would behave, they will ask how youdid behave. The  interviewer will want to know how you handled asituation, instead of what you  might do in the future.Questions in a Behavioral InterviewBehavioral  interview questions will be more pointed, more probing and more specific than  traditional interview questions:
  
  Give an example of an occasion when you used logic to solve a problem. Give  an example of a goal you reached and tell me how you achieved it. Describe a  decision you made that was unpopular and how you handled implementing it.Have  you gone above and beyond the call of duty? If so, how?What do you do when  your schedule is interrupted? Give an example of how you handle it.Have you  had to convince a team to work on a project they weren't thrilled about? How  did you do it?Have you handled a difficult situation with a co-worker?  How?Tell me about how you worked effectively under pressure.Follow-up  questions will also be detailed. You may be asked what you did, what you  said, how you reacted or how you felt.
  Preparation for the Potential Behavioral InterviewWhat's the best way  to prepare? It's important to remember that youwon't know what type of  interview will take place until you are sittingin the interview room. So,  prepare answers to traditional interviewquestions.
  Then, since you don't know exactly what situations you will be askedabout if  it's a behavioral interview, refresh your memory and considersome special  situations you have dealt with or projects you have workedon. You may be able  to use them to help frame responses. Preparestories that illustrate times  when you have successfully solvedproblems or performed memorably. The stories  will be useful to help yourespond meaningfully in a behavioral interview.
  Finally, review the job description, if you have it, or the jobposting or ad.  You may be able to get a sense of what skills andbehavioral characteristics  the employer is seeking from reading the jobdescription and position  requirements. Take a look at what employersare advised about developing the  job posting for a behavioral interview on the  About Human Resources site.
  During the Behavioral InterviewDuring the interview, if you are not  sure how to answer thequestion, ask for clarification. Then be sure to  include these pointsin your answer:
  A specific situation The tasks that needed to be doneThe action you tookThe  results i.e. what happenedIt's important to keep in mind that there are no  right or wronganswers. The interviewer is simply trying to understand how you  behavedin a given situation. How you respond will determine if there is a  fitbetween your skills and the position the company is seeking to fill.So,  listen carefully, be clear and detailed when you respond and,  mostimportantly, be honest. If your answers aren't what the interviewer  islooking for, this position may not be the best job for you anyway.
  





我在加拿大找工作的经验(ZT)
我在加拿大找工作的经验(ZT)
2005年04月19日00时04分 来源:华枫论坛作者:henry_xy

我在找工作的期间看了很多网友找工作的文章和经验介绍, 同时也得到了很多朋友的帮助和鼓励,非常感谢他们。 现在我也班门弄斧写点经验, 主要是针对IT类的工作。

1。LINC/ESL
刚登陆的一个月里面我上了几天LINC. 我自己的感觉是LINC的语法、阅读和写作对于中国人来说比较简单,
口语在LINC4还是很简单,到了LINC5开始有难度.不过上课期间并没有很多机会能和老师单对单聊天。 而且LINC的老师很多不是加拿大人,他们的口音我感觉不是很地道。
我没上过ESL,不过听说他们的教学和难度都比LINC好一点,请有经验的人说一下

2。WorkShop/JobShop
我上过一个为期3天的WORKSHOP,怎么说呢,老师确实是教你怎样打COLD CALL,怎样做INTERVIEW,但是说句实话用处似乎不是太大, 只能是当作是融入当地社会的一个过程吧. 我倒是建议刚登陆的朋友去这些JOB SHOP里面找一个辅导员(最好找一个中国人),他们在某些程度上能对你的简历和找工作方法提出一些非专业性的指点,最起码当你觉得无助的时候你可以从他 们那里得到一些信息和鼓励.

3。简历
简历的重要性很多文章说过,我的个人看法是一份简历无论修改多少次,仍然可以修改的更好。 不妨学习一下JOBPOSTING里面的写法,把几十份和你技术相关的JOBPOSTINGS杂七杂八凑起来就能组成简历中的技能部分。
有些朋友说简历一定要限制在2页,我开头也是按照这个规矩,但是发现一旦修改一下简历,2页的WORD文档排版起来很困难。后来我就把简历扩充到3页以上,把自己做过的项目和职责能写多详细就写多详细. 发现简历的长短似乎并不是什么问题。有时候公司面试对那些项目和技术感兴趣的话,他们甚至会按照简历的描述一行一行的详细询问。
发简历的时候我自己是每个公司建立一个目录,以后所有发给这个公司的简历和JOBPOSTIING的信息都放在目录里面,然后再用一个EXCEL文件记录简历发送的情况。
我申请的职位99%都是通过EMail发简历的。邮件正文写COVER LETTER,简历放在附件中(Word或者PDF格式)。
有些公司只接受FAX简历. 如果你用WINXP,直接用MODEM连电话线就可以发FAX(例如手提电脑基本上都带有MODEM的),详细FAX过程可以GOOGLE一下,很简单.

4.中介
我曾经上过6、7个中介公司主动递简历他们,结果音信全无,反而是后来他们在WORKOPOLICS和MONSTER.CA上SEARCH到我的简历来找我,不知道这是不是人越贱越没人理
我也发过上百份简历给中介,得到中介的面试机会的不多, 最后真正得到和雇主面试的机会极少. 我感觉(指IT类)中介似乎比较适合已经有加拿大工作经验想跳槽的人,新移民想通过中介找到工作比较困难

网上很多帖子专门列举了大部分的中介信息, 我就不一一列举了

5.求职网站

在Monster和WorkOpolics上发简历然后每天定时更新,这个很多人说过了,因为很多公司和中介会在上面SEARCH。 不过我在上面主动投的简历基本上都没有回音,算了一下几个月时间总共只得到了2个电话面试的机会
如果你精力有限,就别在这么HOT的地方花太多的时间发简历. 我倒是觉得GOOGLE的职位新闻组还有ROLIA、CHINASMILE的职位情报版块更高效。还有记住去你感兴趣的公司网站上POST你的简历(所有IT公司的网站都有Career一栏).
我推荐几个JOB搜索引擎和新闻组:
http://www.jobry.com/advancedjobsearchca.php
http://70.24.237.54/f*******/search...=7&term=1&cat=2
http://groups.google.ca/groups?hl=en&lr=lang_zh-CN|lang_en&newwindow=1&group=tor.jobs
http://seeker.dice.com/jobsearch/ge...2&CANNED_SKILL=
http://www.workopolis.com/index.html
http://www.monster.ca

7.面试

通常第一轮是电话面试(大多数是HR或者中介打给你,问的问题都是非常固定的,基本上90%都重复),第二轮技术面试.
我开头那段时间不适应电话英语,很多简单的词听不出来,后来我想到一个方面就是多点打电话给银行、速递公司之类的800
电话,反正我是客户英文说的再烂对方也要和你继续聊。通过一段时间的锻炼我发现HR电话面试可以基本上过关。
我把自己的技能和做过的项目非常详细的写在WORD文档中, (然后打印出来(万一突然有电话面试来不及开电脑你也起码有点资料可以看),一有时间就背诵,直到最后滚瓜烂熟为止。 (最起码你面试开头能流利背诵几段英文已经可以给面试者一个好的印象. (反正你能打800电话顺利办理事情我觉得面试英文就基本上OK了,剩下的主要看你的技术和临场反应能力.
(
HR面试常见问题包括:
1.今天天气怎样,你是怎样过来的(坐车还是开车?)
2.你什么时候来加拿大的,你对加拿大印象如何?
3.你要求的薪水范围多少?
4.你以前的公司名字和TITLE,大致做点什么(几句话就可以了)?
5.你以前学校情况和你的学位情况?
(
技术面试常见问题包括:
1。简介一下你自己的个人基本情况
2. 简述一下你自己的技能
2。描述一下你以前做过的一个项目
3。你对TEAM的认识(最喜欢问的就是如果你和TEAM LEADER/MEMBER发生矛盾怎么办)
4。根据你简历的内容一条一条核对和提问题
(大多数情况下这些问题都是泛泛而谈,很少会涉及到非常深奥和底层的东西。如果你遇到某个英文术语不懂的话一定要对方解释,不要花过多的时间来思考,否而你犹豫的神情会让对方对你的简历产生怀疑。我试过好多次情况回答一个术语都要好几次对方才满意,其实不是自己不懂这个技术,但是需要一段时间才能领悟对方 到底想问什么.
(面试的时候一定要有120%的自信,千万不要紧张,多点笑多点用手势表达自己的想法.套用某个INDIAN中介给我的面试建议:
sit straight
smile
be confident
answer all questions clearly and loudly
(
8.毅力
我找工作到第三个月的时候真的有点撑不住了. 因为一直都没有什么公司的回音和正式面试. 我已经打算去申请做Volunteer或者CO-OP,后来有几个朋友鼓励我继续坚持下去(非常感谢他们).结果到了第四个月奇迹出现了,居然一下子有了好几个面试机会. (我那时候也收集了一些Co-op的信息,有兴趣的朋友可以参考一下
