人人都想要找好工作,在競爭如此激烈的時代,你一定要準備好「求職三法寶」,才能順利脫穎而出。

所謂的「求職三法寶」就是「履歷」(resume)、「自傳」(autobiography)、還有「求職信」(Cover Letter)!

不過,台灣人在求職時,通常只習慣準備履歷、自傳,卻忽略了求職信。

事實上,求職信在國外非常重要,是求職時必備的材料之一,如果你是要應徵外商公司,絕對不能忘記準備這一份關鍵的文件。



求職信到底有多重要呢?

求職專家Alison Doyle 在 “How to Use Keywords in Your Cover Letters "

一文中表達對於求職信的看法:



“When you are writing a cover letter, it’s important to make sure that every word counts1. Your cover letters should enhance the employer’s appreciation2 of your qualifications3 so you can move from applicant to interviewee.”

「當你在寫求職信時,記住每一個字每一句都很重要。你的求職信應當要能讓雇主更欣賞你的資歷,好讓你從求職爭取到面試機會。」

準備一份動人的求職信,讓你瞬間爭取到面試機會。 :D

根據Alison Doyle的意見,在寫求職信時,記住一定要放入、運用以下幾種關鍵字,讓你的求職信大大加分!


__________________________________________________________________________________________
Skill Keywords :-)

“Job seekers should carefully analyze4 the skills required to excel in their target job and incorporate5 them into their cover letter. “

技能關鍵字

「求職者應當仔細分析想要的工作需要那些技能才能勝任,並將這些技能融入求職信中。」


____________________________________________________________________________________________________
Results Oriented6 Keywords :D

All employers are looking for employees who will add value and generate7 positive results for their organization. That’s why it’s critical8 to integrate results oriented language into your cover letters.

相關成就關鍵字

「所有的雇主都在尋找可以為公司帶來價值,並產生正面效益的員工。這就是為何將有關成就的語彙融入你的求職信如此重要。」


_____________________________________________________________________________________________________
Recognition Keywords :-)

Hiring managers will be more likely to believe that you will be an outstanding9 performer if it is clear that previous employers have viewed you in this way. One way to do this is to incorporate language which demonstrates that employers have recognized your contributions 10.

讚賞關鍵字

「如果你之前的雇主認為你表現傑出,現在的人資主管也才比較可能相信你是個傑出的人才。要達到這樣的目的,就融入一些語彙,展現先前的雇主如何賞識你的貢獻。」




_______________________________________________________________________________________________________
非學不可關鍵字

count v. 具有重要性、具有重要意義
appreciation n. 賞識;欣賞
qualification n. 資歷;能力
analyze v. 分析
incorporate v. 包含;吸收(常與into連用)
oriented 以……為方向/目的/重心的
generate v. 產生(光、電、效益等)
critical adj. 重要的
outstanding adj. 傑出的
contribution n. 貢獻



放大關鍵句

1. “Job seekers should carefully analyze the skills required to excel in their target job and incorporate them into their cover letter.”

此句中的…the skills required to …原為the skills which are required to ….,文章作者省略關係代名詞which以及動詞are,以求句子簡潔。

句子動詞incorporate為「包含」、「融入」之意,常與into連用,例如:

The doctor suggested the patient to incorporate more vegetables into his diet.

醫生建議病人將更多蔬菜融入他的飲食中。



2. Hiring managers will be more likely to believe that you will be an outstanding performer if it is clear that previous employers have viewed you in this way.



本句在if子句中使用了 it is adj.+that名詞子句的句型,it為虛主詞,本身無任何意義,真正的主詞為“that previous employers have viewed you in this way”。本句可改寫為: “….if that previous employers have viewed you in this way is true.”

然而,由於that名詞子句過長,直接放在if連接詞後並不易閱讀,因此文章作者使用it作虛主詞,再將名詞子句置於後方,方便閱讀。
