  • My name is Andres Herrera.

    我是 Andres Herrera。

  • And on this video I'm going to teach you a very interesting topic: language and phrases that you can use during a job interview.


  • Now, let's meet our characters.


  • The boss


  • The candidate


  • If you have got to this step, then well done.


  • It means you're a strong candidate and are closer to getting the job you want.


  • However, practising for the job interview is crucial, as this will help to reduce your stress levels, increase your confidence, and boost your chances of being hired.


  • Wait a second, wait a second.

  • Now, let's see some of the most popular questions that candidates get asked while on a job interview.


  • Why do you think we should hire you?


  • Why are you suitable for this position?


  • These are typical questions that you might have to answer.


  • For these type of questions, a good idea is to tell them about your professional and academic background, giving some examples of your previous job positions.


  • Very important: make sure you know how to use the past simple and the present perfect before going to a job interview.


  • You could start by using this sentence: I think I'm suitable for the position at, name of the company, and give the reason.

    你可以從「我很適合 (公司名稱) 的職位」開始,然後說明原因。

  • Then you could add some information by letting them know about your academic and professional background.


  • I think I'm suitable for the position at HSS because I have more than ten years of experience in imports and exports.

    我認為我很適合 HSS 的這個職位,因為我已經從事進出口相關工作超過十年。

  • Following my degree in marketing, I started getting interested in international sales.


  • I have also worked in retail sales, so I have a lot of experience in customer service.


  • When you're finishing the interview, it's good to give the main points again, so here you can use, "to sum up."


  • To sum up, I think I'm suitable for the position of import manager at HSS. Firstly, because I have a lot of experience in the field.

    總結來說,我認為我是擔任 HSS 的進口部經理的適合人選。首先,因為我在這個領域有相當豐富的經驗。

  • And, secondly, because I can adapt to any difficult situation.


  • Another common kind of question is, "what are your weaknesses?"


  • It's always hard to tell people about your weaknesses, so try to soften them with words like, a little, a bit, sometimes, occasionally, and then say something that has helped you to overcome them.


  • I sometimes lack the confidence to speak up and voice my opinion, but I have worked really hard on my confidence and communication skills over the past year and I have improved a lot.


  • Here is another example question: Tell me about a time when you had to make a difficult decision.


  • You have to be careful with your answer, because the interviewer wants you to give him or her a specific example of when you had to face a difficult or challenging situation.


  • But don't worry, there is a method that you can use, the STAR method.

    不過不用擔心,你可以採用 STAR 策略。

  • S for Situation (give the context).

    S 是情景(講述背景),

  • Here you set the scene and give the context of a situation you faced in the past.


  • When I was working for Export Leather, my boss offered me the opportunity to work in Australia for a year, but that meant that I had to leave my family and my home country for one year.


  • T for Target (describe the purpose).

    T 是任務(描述決策的原因),

  • Here you tell them what was necessary to improve the situation.


  • I had to make my family understand that this trip would be beneficial for us in the future.


  • A for Action (explain what you did).

    A 是行動(解釋你做了什麼),

  • Here you describe the action that you did in order to improve the situation, why, and when you did it.


  • I decided to take the offer in Australia, and after six months of working, the project turned out to be a huge success.


  • R for Result (share the outcome).

    R 是結果(分享你的結果),

  • Finally, you describe the outcome of the situation.


  • It was so successful that I made enough money to bring my family over to Australia, and we lived (there) for six months.


  • That was such an amazing experience.


  • The job is yours.


  • Now, let's have a look at the expressions we have learnt today.


  • "I think I'm suitable for the position at, name of the company", and then you give the reason.

    「我認為我適合 (公司名稱) 的這個職位」,然後解釋原因。

  • To talk about your academic background, you can use "following my degree", and then you add your piece of information.


  • You can use the past simple to talk about your life experiences.


  • You can use present perfect, as in "I have worked in".


  • To organize and give a conclusion, you can use "to sum up".


  • Remember to use words like sometimes, occasionally, a bit, when talking about your weaknesses.


  • Use the STAR method when you have to describe a challenging situation.

    使用 STAR 策略來講述你之前面對最具挑戰性的兩難狀況。
