人气: 发布时间:2011-06-07 23:06

在这里列出一些最常用的句子,要熟读,在面试中要熟练。看起来很简单,可是要做到脱口而出,不一定很简单。

一、第一句话(first word)

见到考官的第一句话,很关键,不用说的很复杂。可以是一个简单句,但一定要铿锵有力。展示出自信和实力。千万不要来一句“sorry, my English is poor”.常见的开头有:

1. Good morning! may I introduce myself ..

2. I am glad to be here for this interview. First let me introduce myself. I’m peter white, my NO is …(北大清华等学校参加面试的考生很多,可能对考生有一个编号,说一下自己的编号显得很职业,也很正式。)

二、作自我介绍——成长经历(making a self-introduction ——developing history)

有很多学校要求做一个自我介绍,这一问题并非在请你大谈你的个人历史。考官是要在你的介绍中寻找有关你性格、资历、志向和生活动力的线索。来判断你是否适合读MBA。你可以先介绍一下成长的经历,出生地和毕业学校等内容。在这一部分要介绍的有些特色,让老师在听几十个人流水帐式的介绍中增加一点乐趣,就权且当作MBA人际关系管理的第一个挑战吧!
 
I come from ******,the capital of *******Province. I graduated from the ******* department of *****University in July ,1997. (很简单的一句话,一定要发音准确!要把毕业学校的英文准确名字搞清楚了。)

你可以借光一下家乡的名人,可以用这句高水平的话,展示高超你高超的口语。
 
You know, there is a saying that “The greatness of a man lends a glory to a place”. I think the city really deserves it.
 
另外在介绍性格和爱好的时候,适合把家庭介绍结合在一起,可以说父母给了你哪些方面良好的影响。不要流水帐似的介绍家庭成员。可以这么说:

Just like my father, I am open-minded ,quick in thought and very fond of history. Frequently I exchange ideas with my family during super. In addition , during my college years, I was once the chairman of the StudentUnion. These work have urged me developactiveandresponsible characters.

在这里给出描述个人品质常用词汇的中英文对照,可以参考。

三、作自我介绍——职业发展(making a self-introduction ——career development)

这是很关键的一部分,也是MBA考官会重点考察的一部分。要把工作经历和MBA的学习以及职业发展方向作为一个整体来谈,让老师感到你选择MBA是一个理性的选择而不是一时冲动,选择MBA是职业发展中的一个必然选择,而不是因为找不到工作。你可以用这些句型:

1、In the past years, I’ve worked at IBM as a software engineer. In my work, I found communication and management is very important. I always believe that one will easily lag behind unless he keeps on learning. So I choose MBA!if I am given a chance to study MBA in this famous University, I will stare no effort to master a good command of communication and management skill.(在过去的几年中,我作为一个软件工程师在IBM工作。在工作中,我发现交流和管理非常的重要。我一直认为一个人很容易落后,如果不持续学习的话,所以我选择了MBA!如果我有机会在这个著名的大学学习MBA,我会不遗余力的掌握沟通和管理的技能。)

Helped to negotiate a $5,000,000 deal for the corporation. (深圳石油化工集团股份有限公司总经理助理。安排总经理的出差旅行计划时间表。作为公司代表接见客户。协助公司谈成了一笔五百万美圆的交易。)

4. assistant tomanagerof accounting department of a joint venture enterprise. Analyzed data and relevant financial statistics, and produced monthly financial statements. (一家合资企业会计部门经理的助理。分析数据及相关财务统计数字,而且提出每月的财务报告。)
 
5. Production manager: Initiated quality control resulting in a reduction in working hours by 20% while increasing productivity by 25%.(生产部经理:引入质量控制,使工作时数减少了20%,而生产力则提高了25%。)

6. Staff member of Shanxi Textiles Import and Export Company. Handled import of textiles from Hong Kong, Macao, Taiwan. Increased sales by 25% from 1990 to 1993. Made frequent business trips to these places to negotiate with textile mills. (山西纺织品进出口公司职员。处理从香港、澳门、台湾进口纺织品事宜。从1990年到1993年增加了25%的销售额。经常出差到这些地方跟纺织厂商洽谈。)

7. Tourist guide during the summer vacation for Beijing International Travel Service. Conducted tours for foreign tourists on trip around the city. (暑假期间为北京国际旅行社当导游。负责外国旅客在城区的观光旅游。)

8. Sales manager. In addition to ordinary sales activities and management of department, responsible for recruiting and training of sales staff members. (销售部经理。除了正常销售活动和部门管理之外,还负责招聘与训练销售人员。)

关于过去工作的描述是很重要的,同学们一定要熟记这些句型。要根据自己的工作经历改造这些句子。
 
如果你的工作有过比较多的改变,你可以这样来描述原因:

9. Unfortunately I have had to leave my position, as my employers have been forced to liquidate their business due to the worldwide economic adversity.(很不幸地,本人不得不离职,因这一次世界性的经济不景气,使我的雇主不得不结束业务。)

10.The only reason why I am leaving the present position is to gain more experience in a trading office. (本人之所以离开目前的工作岗位,唯一的理由是希望能在一家贸易公司获得更多的经验。)

11. I now wish to enter an office where the work requires greater individual responsibility and judgment than here, and where there is more opportunity for advancement. (目前,本人希望进入一家可以担负较大责任的公司,并希望能提供升迁机会。)

12. My reason for leaving the company is that I wish to get into the advertising business. (本人离职的原因是希望在广告业方面有所发展。)

13. My reason for leaving my present employment is that I am desirous of getting broader experience in trading.(本人离职的理由:希望在贸易方面,能获得更广泛的经验。)

英语精彩问题七十五问

在自我介绍完了老师就会开始问你问题这里列出一些常见的问题,可以认真准备。注意在准备的过程中,要结合自己的经历和见解来准备答案,让自己回答的问题和整个的自我介绍融为一个整体。要不然很容易被考官抓住把柄,问个没完,很容易因紧张而露出马脚。

在每一年的面试中都会有很多相同的问题,这些问题看起来很平常,却有很多陷阱,一不小心就会被考官抓主小辫子了。回答这些常见的看起来很平常的问题,是很有艺术的。

传统面试问题(Sample Traditional Interview Questions)

1、"What can you tell me about yourself?" ("关于你自己,你能告诉我些什么?")

This is not an invitation to give your life history. The interviewer is looking for clues about your character, qualifications, ambitions, and motivations. ?

这一问题如果面试没有安排自我介绍的时间的话。这是一个必问的问题。考官并不希望你大谈你的个人历史。是在寻找有关你性格、资历、志向和生活动力的线索。来判断你是否适合读MBA。

The following is a good example of a positive response. "In high school I was involved in competitive sports and I always tried to improve in each sport I participated in. As a college student, I worked in a clothing store part-time and found that I could sell things easily. The sale was important, but for me, it was even more important to make sure that the customer was satisfied. It was not long before customers came back to the store and specifically asked for me to help them. I'm very competitive and it means a lot to me to be the best."

下面是一个积极正面回答的好例子:"在高中我参加各种竞争性体育活动,并一直努力提高各项运动的成绩。大学期间,我曾在一家服装店打工,我发现我能轻而易举地将东西推销出去。销售固然重要,但对我来说,更重要的是要确信顾客能够满意。不久便有顾客返回那家服装店点名让我为他们服务。我很有竞争意识,力求完美对我很重要。"

2、 "What would you like to be doing five years aftergraduation?"("在毕业以后5年内你想做些什么?") 
Know what you can realistically accomplish. You can find out by talking to others MBA about what they accomplished in their first five years with a particular company aftergraduation.

 "I hope to do my best I can be at my job and because many in this line of work are promoted to area manager, I am planning on that also."

你要清楚你实际上能胜任什么。你可以事先和其他的MBA交流一番。问问他们在毕业后在公司的头5年都做了些什么。

可以这样回答:"我希望能在我的职位上尽力做好工作,由于在同一领域工作的许多人都被提为区域负责人,所以我亦有此打算。"

3. "What is your greatest strength"?" ("你最突出的优点是什么?") 
这是很多面试考官喜欢问的一个问题。 
T
his is a real opportunity to toot your own horn. Do not brag or get too egotistical, but let the employer know that you believe in yourself and that you know your strengths. #z#`EBXV$6 

"I feel that my strongest asset is my ability to stick to things to get them done. I feel a real sense of accomplishment when I finish a job and it turns out just as I'd planned. I've set some high goals for myself. For example, I want to graduate with highest distinction. And even though I had a slow start in my freshman year, I made up for it by doing an honor's thesis." 

这是你"展示自己"的最佳机会,不要吹嘘自己或过于自负,但要让雇主知道你相信自己,你知道自己的优点。

如可答:"我认为我最大的优点是能够执着地尽力把事情办好。当做完一件工作而其成果又正合我的预想时,我会有一种真正的成就感。我给自己定了一些高目标。比如说,我要成为出色的毕业生。尽管在大学一年级时我启动慢了些,但最终我以优等论文完成了学业。

4. "What is your greatest weakness?"("你最大的弱点是什么?")
You cannot avoid this question by saying that you do not have any, everyone has weaknesses.

The best approach is to admit your weakness but show that you are working on it and have a plan to overcome it. If possible, cite a weakness that will work to the company's advantage. "I' m such a perfectionist that I won't stop until a job is well done. 

你不应该说你没有任何弱点,以此来回避这个问题;每个人都有弱点。最佳策略是承认你的弱点,但同时表明你在予以改进,并有克服弱点的计划。 

可能的话,你可说出一项可能会给公司带来好处的弱点,如可说:"我是一个完美主义者。工作做得不漂亮,我是不会撒手的。"

5. "How do you feel about your progress to date?" ("对于你至今所取得的进步你是怎样看的?") 
Never apologize for what you have done. 

"I think I did well in school. In fact, in a number of courses I received the highest exam scores in the class." "As an intern for the X Company, I received some of the highest evaluations that had been given in years. 

绝不要对你以前的所作所为表示内疚。

如可答:"我认为我在学校表现不错。事实上,有好几门功课我的成绩居全班第一。""在某公司实习时,我获得了该公司数年来给予其雇员的好几项最高评价。"
