  • Hi, I'm Annemarie with Speak Confident English and welcome to your Confident English Wednesday

    Hi! 我是 Speak Confident English 的 Annemarie,歡迎收看每週三的 Confident English

  • lesson.

    課程

  • This week we are focused on one of the most popular topics on the Speak Confident English

    這週我們會聚焦在 Speak Confident English 網站上最受歡迎的主題

  • website.

    之一

  • It's also one of the most common questions I receive by email or from my students, especially

    這同時也是我從 email 或學生那裡最常被問到的問題,尤其是

  • those who are looking for a new job, trying to advance their career, and use English.

    那些在找工作的人們、那些想在職場上有所突破,並且使用英語的人們

  • So today we are focused on: Tell Me About Yourself.

    所以今天的焦點是:自我介紹

  • We're getting very specific on just this one question because it's the most common question

    我們會專注在這個單一問題上,因為這是工作面試

  • in a job interview and maybe even the most important.

    最常見的問題,甚至是最重要的

  • Both native and non-native English speakers search all over the Internet to find out how

    所有英語母語者及非母語者都會在網路上搜尋如何

  • to best answer this question and there are some fantastic examples and resources online.

    最適當地回這個問題,而網路上也有很多很棒的範例和資源

  • But today I want to focus on one specific thing: 3 dos and don'ts of how to answer this

    但今天我要聚焦在單一的重點上:回答這個問題的三大訣竅和

  • question.

    三大禁忌

  • Today's lesson actually comes from my own experience.

    今天的課程其實使從我的親身經歷而來

  • Yes, I've interviewed for jobs before in my life but I've also been an interviewer many,

    是的,我曾經為了找工作做過很多面試,但我也擔任過很多很多次的

  • many times.

    面試官

  • And in that experience, I've seen some really wonderful interviews and some not so impressive.

    那個經驗讓我見識到很多很棒的面試過程,當然有些也不怎麼樣

  • I don't want you to be in that second group, so I'm going to share with you exactly what

    我不希望你們變成第二種人,所以我要跟你們分享受面試者到底如何

  • impressed me as an interviewer, what helped make someone memorable, and what is important

    使我印象深刻,是什麼讓有些人能留下深刻印象,然後當你下次

  • for you when you interview for your next job in English.

    用英文面試時,什麼是重要的

  • Now very quickly, before we get to the lesson I do want to let you know that I have a super

    在那之前,先稍微岔開話題。今天我為你們準備了很棒的東西

  • special download for you today.

    供你們下載

  • It's a step-by-step workbook that will help you think about how to best create your unique

    是一個習作,一步步帶你們思考如何針對這個問題,提出你

  • answer to this question.

    最特別的答案

  • We'll talk a little bit more about the workbook as we go through the lesson.

    等等在講解課程的時候會再多談談這個習作

  • But after you watch this video, make sure that you visit the online lesson so that you

    但是看完這部影片後,不要忘了到官網看線上課程,這樣你

  • can download the workbook and prepare, practice, and perfect your answer to Tell Me About Yourself.

    才能下載習作,準備和練習如何完美的自我介紹

  • So the first don't in today's lesson is: in this question, don't tell your life story.

    所以今天的課程要介紹的第一個禁忌是:不要把人生大小事都講出來

  • Yes, the interviewer is asking you to tell her or him about yourself but they don't want

    是的,面試官確實在請你自我介紹,但他們不想知道

  • to know where you grew up or all of the travels you've taken in your life.

    你在哪裡長大,或是你曾經到哪裡旅行

  • They don't want to know about all your time at university studying.

    他們不想知道你的大學學業生涯的種種

  • They want to know one thing: are you the right person for the job.

    他們只想知道一件事:你是不是這份職缺的最佳人選

  • And they want to get an immediate idea about whether or not you are.

    而他們想在最短的時間內得到答案

  • So this question helps them understand that immediately if you answer it correctly.

    因此,這個問題主要是在幫助他們能迅速做判斷,如果你有正確地回答

  • Now that doesn't mean there's a right or a wrong answer.

    但這不代表有個標準答案

  • But it does mean there is a correct way or method to answering it.

    但是這代表確實有個正確的回答方式

  • The key is to think about this specific job that you are interviewing for.

    關鍵是仔細思考你要應徵的這個職缺

  • And then thinking about your entire experience, your work experience, your accomplishments,

    然後再仔細回想你過去的所有經歷、你的工作經歷、各項成就,

  • the skills that you've gained and choosing the things that are most specific that relate

    你所習得的技能,而選擇那些和這份職缺直接相關的事件

  • directly to this job so that you can show you are the right person, that you have the

    可以顯示你是最好的人選,你有合適的學歷證照、

  • right qualifications, expertise, strengths to perform well and be the best person for

    專長,能夠有良好績效,然後是這份工作的

  • this job.

    最佳人選

  • Now if you've never talked about your accomplishments, your strengths and that feels uncomfortable,

    如果你不曾談論你的成就、你的優點,如果你談這些覺得不舒服的話,

  • maybe it's not something that's common in your culture, that is okay.

    那沒有關係,因為或許你的文化背景讓你不會談這些

  • I know it feels strange and awkward at the beginning but that is exactly why I created

    我知道這一開始會話很奇怪、很尷尬,而這也是為什麼我為你們設計了

  • this workbook for you,

    這個習作

  • to help you begin the process of brainstorming and thinking about: what should you say, what

    來幫助你們想想應該說什麼,可以

  • could you say?

    說什麼?

  • What is part of your background, your expertise that could be important to highlight in this

    你的背景、專業有哪些方面可以針對這個問題

  • question?

    提出亮點?

  • Don't number two: don't repeat your resume word-for-word.

    第二個禁忌:不要字句不漏地重述你的履歷內容

  • Honestly, this just isn't impressive.

    說真的,這真的很爛

  • Your interviewer will most likely have a copy of your resume directly in front of them and

    面試官應該面前就已經有一份你的履歷了

  • they've probably read a little bit of it, so they don't need you to repeat everything

    而且他應該已經稍微看過了,所以沒有必要再把內容

  • to them.

    重複一遍

  • Again, remember, the key of this question is are you the right person for the job.

    要記得,這個問題的關鍵是在決定你是不是最佳人選

  • So everything you say in the response to this question should be those skills, those areas

    所以你的回答必須涵蓋那些使你成為最佳人選的

  • of expertise that will make you the right person for the job.

    技能和專業

  • They should directly connect to that position.

    這些應該和職缺直接相關

  • Think of it as an opportunity to highlight the most important things about you and what

    把它想成一次機會讓面試官注意你最重要的特點,

  • you want the interviewer to know the most so that he or she can make the right decision.

    和你最想讓面試官知道的事情,讓他可以做最好的決定

  • This is only the first question.

    這只是第一個問題而已

  • There will be many more questions in the interview where you will have the opportunity to expand

    還會有很多問題讓你有機會著墨

  • your answers.

    更多

  • But here you want to give an overview and highlight the key points.

    但在這裡,你應該挑重點,給個大概

  • Now in the online lesson, I have given you some good and bad examples so that you can see

    在線上課程中,我也講了一些好的範例和不理想的範例,

  • what I'm talking about when you answer this question.

    這樣你們回答這個問題時可以了解我的意思

  • And I've give you several more examples in that step-by-step workbook.

    我也在習作中給了更多的範例

  • And don't number three: don't speak for too long.

    第三:不要講太久

  • Again, this is only your first question.

    要知道,這只是第一個問題

  • You're just getting started with the interview.

    面試才剛開始

  • Your answer to this question should be about 2 to 3 minutes long, no longer.

    你的回答應該大概 2-3 分鐘,不要更久

  • This is your introduction, so you want it to be brief, you want it to be clear, and

    這是開頭而已,所以應該點到為止、

  • you want it to be succinct.

    精簡有力

  • If you know me, you know that I love that word succinct.

    你如果跟我很熟,應該會知道我很喜歡 succinct 這個字

  • It means saying everything you need to say and nothing more.

    意思是,把該講的全部講出來,不要再加油添醋

  • Now the only way to make sure that you answer this question in the best way possible is

    要確保你能最完善地回答這個問題,只有透過準備

  • to prepare.

    才能達成

  • Yes, prepare before you go to the job interview.

    是的,面試前要先準備

  • Know what you want to say.

    要知道你想講什麼

  • Practice it.

    不斷練習

  • Say it out loud.

    真的講出來

  • Time yourself to make sure that it's not too short (30 seconds is too short) but of course,

    練習的時候要計時,確保你的回答不會太短 (30 秒太短了) ,但是當然

  • you don't want it to be too long either.

    也不要太久

  • You want it to be just right and you want to sound natural and free and easy when you communicate

    應該剛剛好。然後你用英語溝通的語氣應該聽起來輕鬆、

  • in English.

    自然

  • The best way to do that is to practice with it, get comfortable with those words and the

    要達到這個目的最好的方法就是透過練習,熟悉該語言、字彙,

  • language and what you're going to say.

    和你想講的話

  • So after you watch this video, after you download the step-by-step workbook to help you create

    所以看完這部影片後,然後做完幫助你回答問題的習作後,

  • your answer, feel free to share it with me.

    歡迎和我分享

  • You can do that in the comments section just below this video.

    你可以直接在下面留言區分享

  • You can also read comments from others to see their examples.

    你也可以看其他人的留言、範例

  • And I do read and provide feedback on all of them.

    我會看並回覆所有的留言

  • It's a great opportunity for you to begin that first step of preparing and practicing

    這是一個幫你踏出準備的第一步很好的機會

  • so that you have your perfect answer to Tell Me About Yourself.

    這樣你就知道要如何完美地自我介紹
