  • Hello everyone, and welcome back to English with Lucy.

    哈囉各位,歡迎回到 English with Lucy

  • We've spoken about writing a wonderful CV,

    我們已經提過如何寫出完美的履歷表,

  • but alongside that you will most likely need a cover letter.

    但隨之而來地,你也需要一封求職信。

  • Some people consider a cover letter to be pointless,

    有些人認為求職信很沒意義,

  • but I think it's an extra opportunity to persuade

    但我認為這是說服招聘者

  • a recruiter to give you a telephone interview.

    對你進行電話面試的額外機會。

  • Some recruiters may receive hundreds of applications a day.

    有些招聘者一天可能會收到上百人的申請。

  • So your cover letter gives you a chance

    因此你的求職信就給予你從大量申請人中

  • to stand out from the crowd.

    變得與眾不同的機會。

  • In this lesson, I'm going to tell you

    在這堂課中,我會告訴你

  • everything you need to know about writing

    關於撰寫一封完美求職信

  • the perfect cover letter.

    所有必須知道的事。

  • Let's get started with the lesson.

    讓我們開始這堂課吧!

  • Now a cover letter should be an A4

    一封求職信應該是

  • piece of paper or a document.

    A4 大小的紙張或一份檔案。

  • To start, you will need to include your name,

    開頭你要附上你的名字、

  • your contact details, the date,

    聯絡方式、日期和

  • and the recruiter's contact details as well.

    招聘者的聯絡方式。

  • Even if you are emailing a cover letter,

    即便你是要寄一封求職信,

  • it needs to be written as a formal business letter.

    你也要寫的跟正式的商業書信一樣。

  • Always send it as a PDF file, as you don't know

    一定要以 PDF 的檔案寄出,因為你不確定

  • whether the recruiter will be using Windows or Mac,

    招聘者會用 Windows 還是 Mac 的系統,

  • and a PDF will open on both

    而 PDF 在兩種都打得開,

  • and the formatting will stay the same.

    且格式不會跑掉。

  • It should be no longer than one A4 page.

    信件不可長於一張 A4。

  • And I advise a maximum of four paragraphs.

    我建議最多四個段落。

  • Start with your name, address, and contact details

    在右上方的角落處的開頭

  • in the top right hand corner.

    為你的姓名、地址和連絡方式。

  • Make sure your details are sensible.

    確保你的資料是很合適的。

  • Email addresses like crazybabe[email protected]zmail.com

    類似像 [email protected] 這種 Email

  • won't make you look very professional.

    會讓你看起來很不專業。

  • Underneath on the left, you should write

    左下方你應該寫上

  • the company address and the date.

    公司地址和日期。

  • Now let's talk about appropriate greetings

    現在我們來聊聊對你的求職信

  • for your cover letter.

    適當的招呼語。

  • When you're doing your initial research,

    當你剛開始在做搜尋時,

  • try to find the name of the hiring manager

    試著找出聘僱經理的姓名或

  • or whoever will be reading your letter.

    任何負責閱讀你的信件的人。

  • This way, you can make your letter a lot more personal

    這樣一來,你就能讓你的信更有切身感,

  • and it will prove that you're a determined candidate

    這也會證明你是個意志堅定的應徵者,

  • who wants this job specifically.

    而且特別渴望得到這份工作。

  • If you aren't sure of gender, just write their full name.

    若你不確定性別,直接寫上他們的全名。

  • Make sure you check your spelling,

    確保你的拼字無誤,

  • because misspelling their name will cause them

    因為若你拼錯了名字會讓他們

  • to disregard your application 99% of the time.

    有 99% 的可能無視你的求職。

  • If you can't find their name or if you aren't sure

    若你找不到他們的姓名或你不確定

  • about their name, you should instead start with,

    他們的姓名,你的開頭應該寫:

  • "Dear Sir or Madam," or, "Dear Hiring Manager,"

    「親愛的先生/女士」或「親愛的聘僱經理」或

  • or, "Dear Recruiting Manager," or even,

    「親愛的招聘經理」甚至是

  • "Dear Human Resources Professional".

    「親愛的人力資源專員」。

  • Just avoid, "To Whom It May Concern,"

    請避免寫:「敬啟者」

    因為這有點過時。

    你寫這封信的原因和

    以及你將自己的履歷也附上了。

  • At the end, you can add a little extra about yourself

    最後,你可以補充一些在履歷上沒辦法寫出的

  • that you couldn't share in your CV.

    關於自己的事情。

  • For example, I am writing to apply

    例如,我是針對求職平台上

  • Now, let's talk about an appropriate sign-off.

    現在,我們來談談適當的署名。

  • You should end your message with a formal closing

    你應該要信中附上正式的結語,

  • Now, we're going to be looking at cover letter grammar.

    現在,我們要看看求職信的文法。

  • My first grammar tip is to avoid

    我的第一個文法技巧是

  • contractions where necessary.

    在必要時避免縮寫。

  • I'm or I am, don't or do not, I'd or I would.

    I'm 或 I am、don't 或do not、I'd 或 I would。

  • So how do you know if it's okay

    所以你該如何知道在

  • to use contractions in a cover letter or not?

    求職信中是否能用縮寫呢?

  • Well, it depends on who's likely to read it

    這要看是誰會讀信,

  • and the job that you're applying for.

    以及擬是應徵什麼樣的工作。

  • You want to demonstrate that you're a good fit,

    你想呈現出你是個合適的人選,

  • and a good way of doing that is to match

    而好的呈現方法就是

    溝通模式。

  • You should always use full sentences.

    你應該要寫出完整句子。

    項目列點適用於履歷表。

  • Full sentences are for the cover letter.

    整句話適用於求職信。

  • You should avoid the passive voice

    你應該避免使用過去式,

  • and use the active voice most of the time.

    大多數時候用主動語態。

  • An example of the passive voice is,

    被動語態的範例有:

  • "A promotion to supervisor was awarded to me

    「僅僅一年後我就被

  • "after only one year."

    升職為主管了。」

  • The active voice: "After only one month,

    主動語態:「一個月後,
