记得找工作那会儿去面试,按照在SUCCESS的培训,面试后要写封THANK YOU LETTER。
洋洋洒洒写了一页纸,什么能得到这样的机会,实感三生有幸。敝参观贵司,感觉贵司生意兴隆,财源茂盛,人杰地灵。您更是才高八豆。。。如果惠赐OFFER,一定效犬马之劳等等连拍马屁再表决心的话。拿给LG修改,他看了看,哗哗划了一大片,看了我直心疼。我可是花了大半天时间写成的。
修改后(其实是重新写过)的THANK YOU LETTER只有短短的两段话,类似于:
It was nice meeting you. As I mentioned in the interview, I have …such such qualifications…
I am looking forward to getting to the next step.
我禁不住问到,就这么简单?
“Yes, that is it. ‘Thank you letter’is really just a sales tool. You use it to remind him/her and also you can tell him/her more about yourself which you forgot to mention in the interview. Of course, it also shows politeness to send ‘thank you letter’.
后来在写BUSINESS CORREPONDENCE时,感觉难的不是英语本身,而是什么样的尺寸是THE RIGHT ATTITUTE把握不准。
LG曾说,Begging will never land you a good offer. They are not charity. What they care the most is what you can do for them instead of what they can do for you. And show them what you can contribute to their success and let them know if they don’t hire you, it is their loss not yours.
从那以后,面试悲剧后,心里总在想, 哼, IT IS THEIR LOSS NOT MINE.
