掌握三訣竅 徵才招聘會要的就是你

§ 原創翻譯:www.HelloUS.com §

你或許不知道,許多公司及早招募入門員工與實習生,希望在年終之際這些人便能夠就定位,也就是說,就業機會還是很多,如果你知道去哪裡找。

基於過去常為美國前15大會計師事務所招聘實習生的經驗,我想給你一些方向。

大學畢業生想找工作,徵才招聘會(career fairs/ job fairs)就是一個很好的地方。
想要在徵才招聘會中脫穎而出,你要學會以招聘者的角度設想: 「一天當中面試那麼多學生,我該如何找到既優秀又符合需求的好人選?」
十次面試中九次的經驗是:前來面試的學生既專業、求職若渴並且可能都具備在工作方面表現不錯的能力。但是,身為一個招聘者,我要的不是"夠好"( fine),而是要"出色" (great),讓我當場就能決定聘用的人。

那麼,你要如何成為招聘者眼中出色的人選呢?

制定計劃:
避免在以下兩種情況下前往:1.不知道参與此次招聘會的公司名單2.不知道誰是你即將有說話機會的對象。我面試了許多學生,從他們的基本提問裡,我很清楚知道他們只是偶然地來到我們的攤位上,因為他們的提問在公司網站的主頁上便能夠找到答案。
即使你碰巧遇到了一個原先不打算面試的公司,你也應該花個幾分鐘,或許用手機上網查查這家公司的資料。重點就是,你得讓每個招聘人員覺得他們的公司就是你的首選。

線索調查:
一定得做資料調查。為了校園徵才招聘會,許多公司已經把自己的資料放在網絡與大眾媒體上,因此,你沒有藉口說不知道這些公司的基本資訊,譬如核心服務項目等。
另外,如果能找出你心中首選幾個公司裡頭負責校園徵才招聘會的面試者,不要害怕提前跟他們聯繫介紹你自己。

了解自己將如何被評估:
為了使招聘過程更加客觀,大多數的招聘人員會讓每個受訪者填寫簡單的評估表單,這些表單通常涵蓋以下幾點:
• 外貌裝扮:
如果你打扮得很認真,人們就會以認真的態度對待你。徵才招聘會-意味著每次最好西裝打扮。曾經有一個學生給我的履歷表令人印象非常深刻,但是他卻穿了運動衫來面試。如果他不作出努力,我又為什麼要呢?

• 專業性:
你通常會被問到:「談談你自己吧。」此時,你的反應應該在兩分鐘內,準確地回答包括一般性背景資料,顯示領導才能以及說出你可以為組織帶來什麼。

讓你的個人電梯簡報趨於完美的方式就是不斷練習,甚至在睡覺的時候也能夠背誦如流。(電梯簡報elevator pitch,意指針對一個產品、服務、個人、團體、組織或是專案的概略介紹,通常也有關鍵性的一刻的意思。關於電梯簡報更多介紹

• 自信心:
我們知道你很緊張,但讓面試者最快說不的方式之一,就是顯得過於緊張。如果你連自己發汗的額頭都不能控制好,那麼你要如何處理未來的客戶呢?

顯得緊張是自然現象,關鍵是要表現出你並不緊張。例如,說話時看著對方的眼睛,傳達安全感,注意自己的用詞避免〝嗯,啊〞等贅詞。

• 領導能力:
招聘記分卡中記錄著領導潛力的排名。由於你可能沒有任何真正的職業經驗,這項評估可能参考你在大學裡的表現。
你曾在學生組織中擔任任何領導角色?你有任何志願服務的經驗?在課堂之外,你有什麼興趣或熱情可以顯示出領導能力嗎?
雇主知道,如果你有過這些帶領能力,那麼這些技能很容易轉化為職場需要。

• 禮儀:
最後,能進到 “必須有”( "must have") 的候選人名單頂端位置的人,他必須了解禮儀的基本知識。也就是知道如何握手,稱呼面試官為“先生”或“女士”,以及在面試後採取的後續行動,例如感謝函或E-mail。
這些年來,成功在很大的程度上依賴人際交往能力,這意味著,具有優良的禮儀不僅僅是一種禮貌,還是很好的行銷方式。

3 Tips for Students to Ace Job Fairs

Feeling like a late bloomer on the summer job hunt? While it's true that many companies like to have their entry-level staff and interns in place by the close of the year, there's still a lot of opportunities out there if you know where to look.
Perhaps the most low-hanging fruit are career fairs. As someone who used to hire interns for a Top 15 accounting firm, I wanted to give you some pointers.
When developing your approach with campus recruiters, put yourself in their shoes. In other words, you are meeting a lot of students in one day. With so much traffic, "good" students who may be well qualified don't stand out as much as those who come in with charisma.
For example, 9 times out of 10 the student being interviewed is professional, eager to please, and will probably do fine in the workforce. As a recruiter, though, I don't want "fine"—I want "great," someone I would hire on the spot. How can you become one of the "greats?"
[Learn HYPERLINK "http://www.usnews.com/education/best-colleges/articles/2011/09/28/6-ways-to-network-while-youre-in-college" how to network while you're in college.]
1. Have a game plan: Don't even think about going into a career fair without knowing who's going to be there and who you want to speak with. I talked to so many students who I think just stumbled on our booth. Top clue: They would ask basic questions that are answered on the home page of our website.
Even if you do happen to come across a company that you didn't intend to approach but looks promising, take a few minutes to sneak out and look them up on your phone. You want to make every recruiter feel like your top choice.
2. Have a clue: You must do your research. These days companies have put themselves out there so much on the Web and through social media that there's no excuse for not knowing basic information such as core services and key players. Also, if you can find out who is doing the on-campus interviews for one of your top picks, don't be afraid to contact them in advance to introduce yourself.
3. Understand how you're being evaluated: To make the recruiting process more objective, most employers have recruiters fill out a simple ratings sheet for each interviewee. These sheets are usually standard and cover most of the following:
• Personal appearance: If you dress like you're serious, people will treat you like you're serious. For fairs, this means a suit every time. I once had a student give me a résumé that was very impressive—but he was in a sweatshirt. If he didn't make an effort, why should I?
[Find out how to HYPERLINK "http://www.usnews.com/education/blogs/hired-before-graduation/2011/12/06/get-your-resume-in-front-of-a-living-breathing-person" get your résumé in the right hands.]
• Professionalism: Have your elevator pitch down because there's a good chance you'll be asked some form of the question, "Tell me about yourself." Your response should be under two minutes, extremely focused, and include some general background information, demonstrated leadership, and what you will bring to an organization.
For example: "I grew up in Seattle, but moved here to attend university. I'm a junior this year with a major in accounting and a minor in communications. I know that accounting today is much more than numbers in a box so I felt my communications courses would prepare me for the demands of client service.
I'm a member of student government, serving as cochair of the community outreach committee, and in that role I've organized projects for the United Way and Habitat for Humanity. I've researched your company and I know that you offer the resources of a 'Big 4' with the personal touch of a smaller firm, and I believe that combination will give me the best opportunity to contribute and grow my career in the long run."
The best way to perfect your elevator pitch is to practice. You should be able to recite this in your sleep. Also, consider this list of HYPERLINK "http://www.collegegrad.com/jobsearch/Mastering-the-Interview/Fifty-Standard-Interview-Questions/" \t "_blank" 50 other standard interview questions.
• Confidence: We know you're nervous, but one of the fastest ways to turn off a recruiter is to appear overly nervous. If you can't handle the career fair without a sweaty brow, then how are you going to handle clients?
Naturally, you will be anxious. The trick is to appear as if you're not. For example, look people in the eye when you speak, be secure in your delivery, and watch how often you use filler words such as "um, ah," etc. Bonus points to anyone who can articulate his or her career path at this point.
For example, at my firm, our entry-level employees start as associates and then move on to senior associate, manager, senior manager, and member. If you are speaking from this script, too, you will be miles above other candidates who have only a general idea of what they would be doing.
• Leadership: Every recruiter scorecard has some ranking for leadership potential. Since you may not have any real career experience yet, this will be evaluated by how you've spent your time on campus.
Have you assumed any leadership roles within a student organization? Do you have any volunteer experience? What interests or passions do you have outside of your classes that could demonstrate leadership ability? Employers know that if you can lead in any of these capacities, then those skills readily translate into the office environment.

• Etiquette: Finally, candidates who ascend to the top of the "must have" list understand the basics of etiquette. This is about firm handshakes, addressing recruiters as "Mr." or "Ms.," and following up with a post-meeting thank you note or E-mail.
These days, success is heavily reliant on interpersonal skills, meaning that having superior manners is more than just a courtesy. It's good business.
