正确理解招聘者提供的信息,是获得该份工作的重要保证之一。

Employment ads are employers’ wish lists: We need fast learners, problem solvers and team players. The task for job seekers is to prove themselves to be a perfect match.
招聘广告通常是招聘者的意愿清单:我们需要拥有快速学习能力,善于解决问题,和具有团队精神的员工。对于求职者来说,他们的任务就是去证明他们恰恰符合以上要求。

However, wish lists are sometimes confusing, especially about candidates’ soft skills. Job seekers may have no idea about what “being result-oriented” means. And though they understand the term “team spirit”, they are not sure how to convince HRs they are good team players.
然而,这张意愿清单有时却很令人费解,尤其是当涉及应试者软技能的时候。求职者可能不知道“具有目标导向意识”究竟意味着什么。尽管他们懂得“团队精神”,但是他们还是不知道如何让人力资源人事相信他们是优秀的团队合作者。

21st Century reporter Xu Jingxi interviewed HRs who decoded four confusing phrases commonly seen in employment ads. The HRs explained the phrases and offered tips in writing resume entries and answering interview questions related to the phrases.
《21世纪英文报》记者许靖烯采访了几位人力资源负责人,他们“破译”了招聘广告中经常出现的4个迷惑性术语。他们在解答这些术语之余,还提供了一些制作简历及面试时回答与这些术语有关的问题时的小建议。

Learning ability
学习能力

A long list of scholarships and prizes in academic competitions in your resume is not convincing enough.
你简历中长长的奖学金和学习获奖名单并不具有足够的说服力。

You need to include comparisons with your peers to demonstrate that it’s difficult to achieve a certain scholarship or prize,” said Huang Sibin, HR manager of Procter & Gamble (China).
宝洁(中国)人力资源总监黄司斌(音译)表示:“你必须要加入与同学的对比,来证明拿到奖学金或奖赏并非易事。

For example, make it clear that only 20 percent of the students can earn the “third-prize scholarship”.
比如,明确说明只有20%的学生可以拿到“三等奖学金”。

Du Juan, HR partner of northwest and north region of Lenovo China, pointed out that it’s also part of learning ability to review one’s own performance and proactively seek for improvement. So candidates can talk about how they discovered their weaknesses during the course of internship and improved themselves.
联想(中国)西北和北方分区的人事专员杜隽(音译)指出,回顾自己所取得的成就及提升能力的主动性也是体现你学习能力的组成部分。应试者可以谈谈自己是如何从实习中发现自己的缺点并进行改进的。

Handling pressure
抗压能力

HRs are not expecting answers such as “It’s OK for me to work overtime”. Their concern is whether a candidate can stay calm and positive in the face of difficulties and find solutions, according to Du.
人事经理们不希望听到“对于我来说加班没问题”这样的回答。杜隽认为,他们所关心的是应试者能否在困难面前保持冷静积极的心态并找到解决问题的办法。

In job interviews, candidates are often asked to describe the biggest difficulty they have met. The key is to give a detailed description of how you dealt with the problem, according to Wang Xijin, HR/recruitment and training manager of Diebold China. Advice: divide the problem into several tasks that are easier to handle; list possible solutions; analyze the pros and cons of each.
在面试中,应试者经?;岜晃始八撬龅降淖畲罄咽鞘裁?。迪堡公司中国区人力资源部招聘及培训经理王希金(音译)认为,详细描述你如何解决难题是关键。建议如下:把问题分成更容易处理的几个部分;列出可能的解决方案;然后逐一分析利弊。

In resumes, it’s impossible to give such details. “Candidates can list their multi-tasking experiences or the tasks they had to finish within limited time,” Wang advised.
在简历中,不可能给出这样的细节。王希金建议:“应试者可以列出他们同时执行多项任务的经历或是在限定时间内必须完成的任务列表”。

Team spirit
团队合作意识

Besides writing about group project experiences in your resume, you can also demonstrate you are a potentially good team player. List interests which rely on teamwork, according to Wang. For example, soccer and basketball involve teamwork.
王希金表示,除了在简历中提及团队合作经历外,你也可以说明自己具有成为团队合作者的潜力。列出与团队合作密不可分的兴趣和爱好。 比如,足球和篮球这些都需要团队协作。

Candidates are often asked in interviews to describe how their teams solved arguments.
应试者在面试中还会经常被问及如何解决团队中的分歧。

“It’s important to show that you are open to teammates’ opinions, but it’s also vital that you fasten on your own ideas if you believe in them,” said Du.
杜隽说:“尽管展示自己乐于接受其他团队同事意见这很重要,但如果你坚信自己的观点是正确的,坚持己见也很重要”。

But Wang reminded students that in HRs’ eyes, a team player agrees with the leader’s decision if the argument can’t be solved by discussion.
但王希金也提醒同学们,在人事经理眼中,当协商无法解决争论时,团队成员应听从领导的决定。

Being result-oriented
目标导向意识

Fresh grads tend to emphasize how enthusiastic they are but HRs expect more than that. Students need to prove their capability to prepare action plans, stay focused and monitor progress to achieve a goal, according to Wang.
毕业生倾向于强调他们对工作的热情,但是人事经理期望的不止如此。王希金认为,毕业生应当证明他们拥有制定行动方案的能力,同时专注于任务,监督进度来完成最终目标。

A common interview question is: Describe an instance where you set a goal and saw it to completion.
面试中常见的一个问题为:举例说明你怎样设定目标并将其完成。

When describing the process, candidates need to break down their action plans. More importantly, candidates should show HRs that they are able to evaluate their performance at each stage and adjust the schedule.
在描述步骤的时候,应试者需要将他们的行动方案分为若干阶段。更重要的是,应试者要向人事经理展示他们能够评估自己在每一阶段的表现并适时调整计划。
