写一封让人眼前一亮的英文自荐信

English 林志斌 1001浏览

"A resume without a cover letter is like an unannounced salesperson showing up at your door. If you are going to let in a perfect stranger, you at least want to see their credentials. This is exactly what a cover letter does — it introduces you, a total stranger, to the reader. It must be compelling, personable, and brief. It needs to specifically relate to the position in question. Remember you only have eight seconds to convince the reader to invite you in."(“一封没有自荐信的简历,就象一位没有开口说话的销售员站在你的门前。如果你想让一位陌生人走进你的屋子,你至少要看一看他的证件。这正是自荐信所要做的,——它把你,一位完完全全的陌生人,介绍给读者。它必须引人入胜,个性化,而且简短。它还需针对你所应聘的职位,逐一陈述。记住,你只有八秒种的时间能说服你的读者让你进入。”)

– BARBARA B. VINITSKY AND JANICE Y. BENJAMIN, How to Become Happily Employed

自荐信是自我推销采用的一种形式,推荐自己适合担任某项工作或从事某种活动,以便对方接受的一种专用信件。自荐信是给你自己一个机会以最佳的候选人形象去应聘一个具体的职位,招聘者有可能就是你将来的上司。所以,自荐信与你的履历表一样重要。事实上,寄出的履历表中不能没有自荐信,自荐信质量的高低直接决定你能否迈进大门与主考官来个“面对面”。

这一期我们介绍求职信(自荐信)正文部分的书写。求职信的正文部分有着相对固定的结构:开始部分,说明职位信息的来源以及介绍个人基本信息;主体部分,进行自我推荐;结尾部分,表达面试意向。

求职信写作三点“要”诀:信首要有吸引力,信的主体部分要突出自己在职位上的优势和能力,信尾要争取面试机会。求职信写作的两点“不要”:结构不要乱(很多HR会直接跳到信的中间开始看这件事我会告诉你们么);不要过分重复Resume里的具体内容,应挑选其中和职位及公司相关的进行介绍,突出自己能给公司带来什么。

1. 信首—强力吸引

首先说一下求职信的开头,开头一般是写信的缘起和动机。在大多数情况下,求职信都是针对网络和报纸上的广告而写的,所以在开头要交代什么时间在什么媒体得知了招聘信息,内容要简单、明确。但是表达上要有特点,避免落入俗套,让你的求职信的开头能给人一种与众不同、耳目一新的感觉,这样给人留下的印象才够深刻,同时增加了HR继续阅读下去的可能性。大家体会体会如下几个例子:

Sample 1:

Are you searching for a Telecommunications Manager with expertise in project management and team leader?

贵公司是否正在招聘具有很强项目管理和团队领导能力的电讯经理?

Sample 2:

In reply to your advertisement at www.xxxyyzzz.com of February 26, I respectively offer my service for the situation.

贵公司2月26日在www.xxxyyzzz.com招聘网上刊登招聘广告,本人特备此函应聘该职位。

Sample 3:

My interest in the position of Project Manager has promoted me to forward my resume for your review and consideration.

我对贵公司的项目经理职位很感兴趣,特提交我的简历供您考虑。

Sample 4:

With regard to your advertisement in the newspaper for an Accountant,
I am sure that I have the qualifications to fit your position.

阅读日报上贵公司的广告,得悉贵公司招聘会计,我深信符合该项职务所列条件。

Sample 5:

Being acquainted with office works, I could make myself generally
useful, should there be any opportunity of your requiring my service.

熟悉公司业务,如有机会为贵公司服务,本人相信,对一般事物必能够轻松胜任。

然后简单说明你为什么要申请这个职位,通常的切入点是公司的培训,文化以及行业状况,工作性质等等(选择因人和工作而异),表现出下过一番功夫。

2. 主体—全力推销

其次是求职信主体部分,一般要表述个人的年龄、学历、资历、能力、更换工作的原因等情况。这一部分至关重要,HR可借此决定是否邀请你来面谈,这一部分是求职者必须竭尽全力来写的。求职者要仔细研究招聘广告,从信息中充分了解招聘者的“心思”,投其所好,对症下药。写作时力求简洁、不批评、不抱怨。语气要肯定、自信、不过分夸张。以Job Description为出发点,Tailor到具体求职的公司和岗位,选出2-3点公司认为的重要的素质,加以阐述。特别重要的是:不要重复Resume里面提过的东西。这一部分可以让HR眼前一亮的包括:①诱人的工作经验;②良好的教育背景;③优秀的个人能力;④明确的求职理由;⑤清晰的职业目标。一一列举如下:

Sample 1:

For five years I have been employed as managing editor on Reader Magazine, having a circulation of about 40000. Enclosed my original writing, the headlines and the printer in setting up the paper.

(诱人的工作经验)

我曾在销售量达4万份的《读者》杂志担任编辑部主任5年,并层参加排版工作,兹附本人过去钻写的原稿及标题,供阁下参考。

Sample 2:

I received good university education. With English as my major combined with practical experience in translating business documents, I worked as an interpreter in England for a Chinese investigation group for three months.

(良好的教育背景)

我受过良好的大学教育,主修英语,再加上翻译商务文件的实际经验,我为在英格兰考察的中国团当过三个月的译员。

Sample 3:

Since I have been studied abroad in Canada. I have always been familiar with spoken English. I correspond in English with friends who live in Canada, and consequently I feel that I have a rather usual acquaintance with that language.

(优秀的个人能力)

由于本人一直在加拿大留学,对英文口语一向娴熟,常和在加拿大的朋友以英文通信,所以本人自觉英文具有非一般的熟练程度。

Sample 4:

While enjoying my present job, I would rather continue such work in a company that offers better prospects. Cable TV, which has a bright future, sounds attractive to me.

(明确的求职理由)

虽然我很喜欢现在的工作,但希望能够为一个发展机会更大的公司效劳。对我来说,有线电视光明的前景相当有吸引力。

Sample 5:

I want to prove my true value in the motorcar industry, and hopefully in the near future I would be promoted to a high position.

(清晰的职业目标)

我想在轿车工业方面证明我的真正价值,并希望在近期内能得到提升。

3. 信尾—争取面谈

写求职信的目的就是争取面试机会,因此在信的结尾处,求职者一定要表达请求安排面试的意愿。如下几则结尾值得借鉴。

Sample 1:

If you would like to know more about my ability, I can be available for an interview at any time convenient to you.

若愿意借鉴本人以了解我的能力,我将随时候教。

Sample 2:

I believe that you will consider this application favorably and I wish to assure you that I should make very efforts to be worthy of the
confidence you may place in me.

若贵公司对我的申请能够予以考虑,本人可做出保证,将尽力为贵公司效劳,不负所望。

Sample 3:

Should you give me a trial, I will do my best to afford you every satisfaction.

如获得试用机会,本人必尽力满足贵公司的要求。

Sample 4:

I hope that you will be kind enough to consider my application favorably.

恳请惠予考虑本人之申请为盼。

Sample 5:

Should you entertain my application favorably, I would make my best to acquit myself to your satisfaction.

假如应征获得青睐而进入贵公司服务,我必竭尽全力为贵公司工作,以符厚望。

这一期的话题暂时先到这里,下一期我们继续讨论求职信的书写格式规范,并为大家呈现和分析精彩的求职信范文。

同时,请大家思考这样一个问题:你在写求职信的时候遇到的困难有哪些?

希望大家能够将自己的疑惑写出来,下期小编会选择具有代表性的问题跟大家进行更深入的讨论。

格式要点:

求职信没有正式的格式,但在写信时要记住一些基本的规则。

①称呼的后面要用逗号而不要用冒号,写称呼时要用正式的语气。
②要用具体的称呼(例如不要写“给有关负责人”)。设法知道谁将收到你的信 。如果有必要,打电话询问公司。如果你还是不能确定具体的名字,就称呼“招聘经理”、“人事部经理”,或者就称“经理”。

③每段之间必须空一行,没有必要首行缩进。

④你可以用表格和粗体线来组织求职信并强调其内容,使文章易读,但要慎用。

⑤结尾时应在姓名上方写上祝福的话,然后下面是印刷体的全名。在你的求职信中,名字与结尾之间一定要保留足够的空间。

内容要点:

一封文辞并茂、简明扼要的求职信一定比一封语言平淡无奇、用语繁缀的求职信更能打动人心,总体来说,一封优秀的求职信要具备以下几点:

有的放矢
不要一封求职信,走遍全天下。这种不管三七二十一的狂轰滥炸,很少能击中目标。有效的求职信都具有很强的针对性,可针对招聘广告上的Job Description分段阐述你自身的条件与优势是符合公司的招聘要求的,不要东拉西扯些多余的话。特别提醒:在求职材料的封面、求职信的右上角清楚写明求职单位和求职岗位,用这种形式来强化求职的针对性。

设置两个左右的兴趣点
写出你自己最关键的经历、最好的成绩、最重要的特长以及自己的愿望、心情和信心等。表明你所特有的教育、技能和个性特征将会为招聘单位做出的特殊贡献。

突出部分加黑加粗
在求职信的格式上,对需要特别强调的词语用另外一种字体打出,例如,主要特长词句用加黑、加粗的字体显示,便于浏览。对特别的段落,采取两端各缩进两字的方法处理,更能吸引招聘者的目光。当然,加黑部分不要过多。

反复斟酌和修改
假设你是雇主,put yourself in the employer's shoes,看你是否想要雇佣一名写了这求职信的应聘者。如果不想,回过去并重新改写,最后直到你写出一封令人入胜的求职信!特别提示:将你所有的求职信进行备份,这样你就会对求职信的发送目标做到心中有数,而不至于在接到面试电话时出现一头雾水的状况。

除非招聘企业特别要求,求职信千万不要以附件的形式发送,而是跟随在邮件信息中。

附加两篇求职信仅供大家参考:

Sample1:(设计师)
