时间:2017-07-30 英文求职信

  whether you're submitting a resume cold or responding to a job posting, always include a cover letter. yes, they're tedious to write, but a solid cover letter can make the difference between getting the job and getting nowhere.

  不管你是递简历还是回应一份招聘启事,记得要加上一 封求职信。是,这很沉闷,但是一封严肃的信会决定你得到工作还是一无所获。

  address the recruiter: start your letter with the date. skip two lines and write the recruiter's full name, preceded by mr. or ms. then, list the recruiter's title and the company name and address. if you don't know the recruiter's name, simply list the company name and address.

  写给招聘员工:信件的开始写上日期。空两行写上招聘 员工的全名,名字之前加上mr.或者ms。然后列出招聘员工的头衔、公司名字和地址。如果你不知道招聘员工的名字,简单的写上公司名字和地址吧。

  say hello: two lines below the header, greet the recruiter with "dear mr." or "ms.", followed by his/her last name and a colon. don't use the first name, even if you've met the recruiter before; it's unprofessional to be immediately informal. if you don't know the recruiter's name, address the letter, "to whom it may concern."

  打招呼:信头写完空两行,即使你已经见过招聘员工, 也要写上“dear mr.”或者“ms.”加上他或她的姓和一个冒号向他致意。一下子就变得很不正式会很不专业。如果你不知道招聘员工的名字,写上“给相关负责人”。

  introduce yourself: state your letter's purpose in the first paragraph. tell the recruiter which position you're applying for and why it interests you. briefly list your top qualifications. if you're responding to a job posting, mention where you saw it.

  自我介绍:在第一段写上这封信的目的。告知招聘员工 你要申请哪个职位以及为什么你对这个职位感兴趣。简短的列出你的最高学历。如果你对一份招聘启事做出回应,要写上你是在哪里看到它的'。

  sell yourself: the second paragraph is the most important: it's your sell. summarize your credentials, but don't reiterate your resume. list your most relevant accomplishments from previous jobs, internships or volunteer work. emphasize your qualifications for the job by highlighting applicable skills. if you're responding to an ad, you have an edge: you already know the job requirements. make sure you address them.

  推销自己:第二段是最重要的:这是推销自己的时候。 简短的说说你有什么证书,但是不要重述简历上的内容。列出你在之前的工作、实习或者志愿工作中取得过什么相关的重大成就。通过突出你的应用能力来强调你很 适合这份工作。如果是回应招聘广告,你就有一个优势:你已经知道工作需求了,确保你对这些要求做出了说明。

  flatter your reader: the third paragraph should clarify why you want to work at this particular company. explain why you and the company are a good fit. show the recruiter that you've done your research. mention a recent company event or express your interest in an aspect of the company that isn't widely known. remember, everyone loves flattery, but don't go over the top.

  取悦你的读者:第三段应该阐明你为什么希望在这家特 别的公司工作。解释一下为什么你和公司很搭。让招聘员工了解你已经做过调查研究。说说公司最近发生的一件事情或者表达出你对公司里并不广为人知的一个方面 的兴趣。记住:每个人都喜欢听好话,但是,别做过头。

  follow-up: your final paragraph should be only a few sentences. thank the recruiter for reading your letter, then request an interview and provide your phone number. or, be proactive and state that you'll call in a week to follow-up. then do it.

  结尾段:结尾段应该只有几个句子。感谢招聘员工阅读 你的信,然后提出面试要求并留下你的电话号码,或者主动点,说明一周内你会打电话跟进,然后记得去做。

  wrap it up: two lines below the last paragraph, conclude with "sincerely,". three lines below that, type your full name. don't forget your signature.

  收尾:最后一段之后再空两行,写上 “sincerely,”。再空三行,写上你的全名。不要忘记签名。

  leave a great impression: three lines below the finish, type "enclosure" (referring to your resume). you'll look professional, detail-oriented and oh-so-savvy.

  留个好印象:结尾后再空三行,打上“附件”(和你的 简历关联一下),你就会看上去很职业、注重细节又非常能干。

  * when touting your achievements, be confident but don't exaggerate, brag or lie.
