“What are your goals for the future?” or “Where do you see yourself in five years?”Don’t discuss your goals for returning to school or having a family, they are not relevant and could knock you out of contention for the job. Rather, you want to connect your answer to the job you are applying for.

* My long-term goals involve growing with a company where I can continue to learn, take on additional responsibilities, and contribute as much of value as I can.
* I see myself as a top performing employee in a well-established organization, like this one. I plan on enhancing my skills and continuing my involvement in (related) professional associations.
* Once I gain additional experience, I would like to move on from a technical position to management.
* In the XYZ Corporation, what is a typical career path for someone with my skills and experiences?

第一个问题一般都是这个 Tell me about yourself/ How would you describe yourself?

You walk into the interview room, shake hands with your interviewer and sit down with your best interviewing smile on. Guess what their first question is? “Tell me about yourself.” Your interviewer is not looking for a 10-minute dissertation here. Instead, offer a razor sharp sentence or two that sets the stage for further discussion and sets you apart from your competitors.

Your Unique Selling Proposition (USP)说出你的卖点

Give them “your synopsis about you” answer, specifically your Unique Selling Proposition. Known as a personal branding or a value-added statement, the USP is a succinct, one-sentence description of who you are, your biggest strength and the major benefit that a company will derive from this strength. Here is an example of a Unique Selling Proposition: “I’m a seasoned Retail Manager strong in developing training programs and loss prevention techniques that have resulted in revenue savings of over $2.3Million for (employer’s name) during the past 11 years.”

What a difference you’ve made with this statement. Your interviewer is now sitting forward in her chair giving you her full attention. At this point, you might add the following sentence: “I’d like to discuss how I might be able to do something like that for you.” The ball is now back in her court and you have the beginnings of a real discussion and not an interrogation process.

“My background to date has been centered around preparing myself to become the very best financial consultant I can become. Let me tell you specifically how I’ve prepared myself. I am an undergraduate student in finance and accounting at _________  University. My past experiences has been in retail and higher education. Both aspects have prepared me well for this career.”

首先要明确他们想了解的是哪方面的内容Do they want to know about your career so far, about your hobbies or family life? If in doubt, ASK them to clarify what they wish you to talk about. Then give a short factual answer, ending with “is there anything else you’d like to know about me?”

* How would you describe yourself?
Try to think about what the interviewers are looking for and keep this in mind as you answer interview questions. Remember the job advert? Were they looking for initiative, a good communicator, someone with good attention to detail? Describe yourself in these terms. Start with “I am..” and not with “I think…” or “I believe..” so that you sound self aware and confident.

When you’re interviewing for an internal position within your company, you may be asked what you will do if you don’t get the job. The interviewer wants to know whether you are concerned about just the advancement opportunity or the company. 内部职位竞聘常会被问到如果你没有得到这份工作的话你将会怎么办的问题。

I am committed to this company and its advancement so, should I not be selected, I will work with and support whoever might get selected. However, I do feel that my experience in the department and with the team would make me the best candidate

How would your boss describe you?

If you get the job, your interviewer may be your future boss so you need to answer this question carefully. Describe yourself as any boss would want to see you. You might say:

“My boss would describe me as hard working, loyal, friendly and committed. He would say that I work well on my own initiative and deliver what he wants on time and to a high standard”.

Again, don’t use the term “I think my boss would say..” as it gives an element of doubt. Be positive and certain with the interview answer you give.

* What motivates you?
I am motivated by being around other positive people, we might question if working alone would suit them.
I am motivated by targets.

* What do you look for in a job?

This is really a question about suitability, though we’ve included it here.
Remember the advert? Focus on the advert criteria and you won’t go far wrong. For example, if the advert called for someone to lead others, you might say:

“I like a job where I can lead and motivate others and enjoy seeing improvements in team performance”.

If the advert called for a target-focused individual, you might say:

“I like having targets. They encourage me to stretch myself and beat them!”

* What is your personal mission statement or motto?

Not everyone has one, but because you might be asked, think what yours would be.

“Just do it!”
“Right first time, every time”.
“Less talk, more action”.
“Treat others as you’d wish to be treated”.
“Fortune favours the brave”.
“Quality, quality, quality…”.

Our advice: This is one of those times when we ask candidates to explain their answers to our interview questions. So, whatever you say, it’s likely you’ll be asked to give a reason or example so have one in mind. For most jobs, you want to sound positive and motivated, but possibly not ruthless or inconsiderate.

* What do you enjoy most about what you do now?

“I really enjoy the technical nature of the job and the speed at which I’m able to fix faults. I get a lot of satisfaction from getting people back to work as soon as possible”.

If working as part of a team is mentioned as a requirement of the job, you might answer:

“I really enjoy being part of a team. I like it when the team pulls together to achieve something and everyone can take some credit”.

* What do you enjoy least about your current role?

A good interview answer might go something like this:

“Actually, I enjoy everything about what I do. I suppose if I had to give something up, it would be…”

The ‘something’ depends on you, but it’s best to mention something incidental to your job, like admin or paperwork. So you might say:

“I’m not sure (pause). I suppose if I had to pick something to give up it would be paperwork. I know it’s important, and I do it well, but if someone else did if for me, that would be great!”

* Why do you want to leave your current job/company?

If you’re applying for a more senior job, you might answer:
“I really enjoy what I do, but I’m ready for more responsibility and challenge which your job offers. Unfortunately, my current job/employer can’t give me this.”

If this isn’t the reason, use yours instead, but always be positive in your answers to tough interview question

* What do you think of your current boss?

“My current boss is great. He sets the team challenging but realistic targets and motivates us to achieve them…”

“My current boss is very good. She deals with her team firmly but fairly and enjoys our respect because of this…”

If your current boss is not great, and you are prepared to answer more interview questions about this, say so, but do balance each criticism with a positive point. Remember the need to appear positive in your answers to interview questions. You might say:

“My current boss has strengths and weaknesses. He is very good at listening to people but sometimes, in my view, doesn’t deal with underperformers firmly enough. This affects team morale sometimes…”

* What will you miss about your present job?

People is the best interview answer here. Say anything else and you’re suggesting the job you’re applying for won’t give you everything you had and more, and might even leave you wanting!
As you think about answers to interview questions, always have in mind the need to create a positive impression.

“Well I’m confident that the job you’re offering will give me everything I have now and more so I don’t think I’ll miss anything about the job itself. But I’ll miss some of the people of course…”

* What can you tell me about XYZ Company?

If you need to, start by saying “Is it ok if I refer to my notes?”. When you get the nod, off you go.

A good interview answer should include short factual statements covering such things as the Company’s history, its products, staff numbers, turnover and future business objectives. Something like this is fine:

“I believe the Company began in 1967, with just one outlet, but now has 25. From what I’ve read, you sell A, B and C products across Europe and the States and have a turnover in excess of $5 million. You employ 125 staff. I beleive you hope to enter the Asian market by 2010″.   ”I’ve done some research and can tell you more if you like”.

You will likely hear “No, that’s fine. Thank you.”

Your interviewers will be impressed that you prepared and made notes and you’re off to a good start.

* What do you think XYZ Company can offer you?

There are two bits to this interview question, the role and the Company. Mention both. You might say:

“I’m told the Company has a firm commitment to individual training and development. This is great news for me because I’m keen to learn and advance in the Company. The role itself appears challenging and rewarding which I’ll find very motivating”.
* If you’re successful, what do you think you’ll be doing day-to-day?

You might start by saying “I understand that I’ll be…”. Then you could talk about the main role, any other activities and any targets you expect to be given.

What are your strengths/weaknesses?

IMPORTANT — this common job interview question can be asked in many different ways, such as ”What qualities do you admire in others that you would like to develop in yourself?”

Strengths should be easy enough to think about (keep the position in mind).

Talking about weaknesses can be harder but good interview answers are still possible. Many people choose to mention something which they’ve recognized as being a weakness but have overcome.

“I’d like to be more organized, like one of my colleagues. She doesn’t have to try. But because I don’t find it as easy as her, I use to-do lists and a diary to help me successfully manage my work”.

On a final note, it’s much safer to highlight your lack of experience or knowledge as a weakness than a fault in your personality. Employers can always give you experience but few want to help you overcome shortcomings in your personality! So avoid telling interviewers that you “get bored” or “too involved” or “frustrated”!

Why did you think you are suited to this job?

What they are really asking is “You know what we are looking for so can you tell us what you have done or what you have, that is relevant.”

Why should we give the job to you above other applicants?

This is often our closing question. We want to know, in a nutshell, why you are the best candidate for the job. This is a chance to list your best attributes as they relate to the vacancy. Don’t be cocky, but don’t be shy.\

* How well do you work under pressure?

“I know that all jobs involve some sort of pressure at some time.  I can work as well under pressure as I do at any other time but when I am busy, I prioritize activities so that my workload is manageable.”

If the interviewers focus on other pressure, such as pressure to meet targets, dealing with difficult customers etc, give an appropriate reply, mentioning past situations where you have coped under such pressure.

* What sort of people do you find it difficult to work with?

“I am an easy going person who seems to get on with everyone. If I have to pick a type of person that bothers me, it’s the one who doesn’t pull their weight or isn’t worried about the standard of their work because it reflects badly on the rest of the team.”

* Sell me this pen!

In interviews for sales job, you may hear this, believe us! In fact, one o- -s had a non-sales interview and was asked this, unexpectedly. The object you are asked to sell could in fact be anything. Some interviewers like to see whether you focus on the benefits of the object or its features. The features of the pen might be that it’s blue, with a roller ball and plastic coating. The benefits might be that it’s reliable, easy to hold and leak proof.

* What key skills do you think you need to be successful in this role?

You got this far because your job application form or resume or CV matched the interviewers’ criteria as specified in the job advert. Just expand on this in your job interview answers. List the skills you think are required, giving a little explanation as to why each is needed.

You might then be asked to give examples where you’ve used one or more of these skills. These are behavioural interview questions.

* Where do you see yourself in five years time?

This can be a difficult job interview question to answer, especially if you’ve not thought beyond getting this job!  When you answer, you want to sound ambitious enough to be motivated to do a good job, but not too ambitious in case your interviewers think you’re only using this job as a stepping stone to something better.

I can be successful in this job and taken on additional responsibilities and be considered suitable for promotion.

* How does this job fit into your career plans?

This is a similar job interview question to the one above really, except that it looks beyond five years. Be realistic. You might say something like this if you’re going for a middle-management position:

“My ambition is to lead a department and be involved in strategic decision-making at a senior level. I expect the role I’m applying for to give me more experience of leading and some introduction to strategy so that I’m ready for a senior role in a few years time”.

* Where did you think you’d be at this stage in your life?

Avoid saying further than you are now! It’s better to show you’ve met or exceeded your ambitions than fallen short of them. Tell the interviewers that you are happy with your life and career, but are looking for more challenge as you like to stretch yourself to achieve more.

* If you could start again, what career decisions would you make differently?

You’re on sticky ground if you start trying to think of hypothetical career changes that might have served you better in the past. Your answers to interview questions will suggest you’re not happy with the way things are and no-one wants to hire an unhappy person.

“I wouldn’t change anything. I am happy with my career as it is now but want fresh challenges.”
“I’m not the kind of person who looks back with regrets. I prefer to invest my energy looking forward”.

* How would you approach a typical project?

If you’re applying for a project based job, such as a project manager, you will be asked this job interview question. Don’t give a long winded answer, but try to demonstrate that you would take into account the main components of effective project planning such as:

- Planning the schedule backwards from completion
- Working out what you need to get the job done effectively and on time
- Budgeting — costs, time and resources
- Allowing a contingency

* How would you get the best from people?

If you are applying for any management role, it is highly likely you’ll be asked this job interview question. The kind of skills that we’d be looking for in a good applicant are:

- Good communication
- Teamwork skills
- Recognizing what each person can bring
- Setting a good example
- Praising good performances

* Give us an example of how you have resolved conflict.

As this is a behavioural interview question, you need to find an example of conflict that you have resolved. The sort of skills you need to demonstrate in your interview answer are:

- Fairness
- Discussing problems with individuals in private
- Making sure you get to the root of the problem
- Finding a solution that everyone will accept

* What did you look for when you hired people in the past?

This is a general question. Don’t think about specific skills of the job you are applying for. Think generally about the key attributes everyone looks for in a good applicant. Among others, these include:

- Aptitude
- Skills
- Initiative
- Flexibility
- Commitment

Do you work best by yourself or as part of a team?

Most jobs require both, to varying degrees.

As with all answers to job interview questions, think about the position you are applying for. Are the interviewers looking for a team worker? Did they mention this in the advert or is it implicit in the job description?  If a team player is required, tell the interviewers that you work well in a team. Give an example if you can. You might say:

“I prefer to work in teams. I find that better decisions are reached when people work together and share ideas. Of course I’m happy to work alone when required too.”

If the job is mostly done alone, you might say:

“I work very well by myself because I’m self motivated, organized and conscientious. I’m comfortable working in teams though and recognize that this is better in some situations”.

* What kind of personality do you work best with and why?

You will deal with many personalities in any job. If the interviewers know the people you’ll be working with, they might have a personality in mind! It’s hard for you to know this however so stick to a safe answer. You might say:

“I find I work well with almost everyone but who I work best with might depend on the activity. If it’s a project, I prefer to work with someone who’s practical and organized because this is important. If it’s leading a discussion, working with someone who’s a good facilitator helps.”

* How would you go about establishing your credibility quickly within the team?

Gaining credibility quickly is important. Make sure you listen, learn, question, understand. You might say: “That’s a good question and I realize it’s important to gain credibility quickly. I believe the best way is to show your colleagues that you respect their experience and want to learn from them as well as about them. You need to listen, ask the right questions and make sure you understand. If they can see you’ll fit in early on, it helps”.

* Tell me about a time where you had to deal with conflict on the job.

This is a behavioural interview question.  If you can’t think of an example, it’s ok to say so. If that’s the case, either say how you would deal with it, or use an example where someone you know dealt with conflict well.

Most interviewers would look for:
o Getting both sides of the argument
o Suggesting and agreeing compromise
o Showing tactfulness
o Showing empathy

* What irritates you about other people, and how do you deal with it?

Personal conflict is inevitable in the workplace  Try not to say that A or B irritates you. Instead, talk about the characteristics which you find hard, not the people. You might say:

“I find I get on with most people so it’s not normally a problem. It’s rather disappointing when people don’t pull their weight I suppose and this has happened. In that instance I spoke to the person in private, explained that they were letting the team down and asked them to make more of an effort. They did.”

“Can you give me some idea of the salary you’re expecting?”
is one of those job interview questions that can really get you tongue-tied.
What do you say? Usually, moments later, you realize you’ve accepted a salary far lower than you wanted. Although you were prepared to negotiate your salary, you panicked at the last minute and lost your nerve. As you leave the interview room, your excitement at getting the job is tainted. You can’t help feeling undervalued, even a little duped. Ask for too much and you risk looking unrealistic, over confident, maybe even greedy. Ask for too little and you risk undervaluing yourself and your contribution, and ultimately being underpaid. For many o- -s, salary is one of the most important factors in taking a job, but it’s often the hardest to deal with.

Nerves got the better of her and worried about sounding greedy, she suggested a lower amount. When she was offered the job, there was the salary she suggested, right at the start of the offer letter. She wasn’t surprised but she was disappointed. So how can you avoid this happening to you?

* Research is essential when it comes to suggesting a reasonable salary. Take time to look though job advertisements for similar positions. Research the WWW or post a question in a forum or on Yahoo! Answers
Research the Company too. A large Company, if asked, will probably have more scope to offer you a better benefits package than a smaller one

* Don’t initiate salary discussions or say anything about pay during your job interview unless asked
* If you’re asked for a figure, suggest a range rather than an actual figure. This gives room to negotiate if a firm job offer is made during the job interview
* If you’re offered the job and reach agreement on a salary, make sure the written job offer states this amount clearly
* And when it comes to the actual salary negotiation here are 6 essential salary
* The most important thing to remember when discussing your salary is that it is a negotiation. Like any form of bartering, the first figure you mention in the job interview probably won’t be the figure you agree on. But it’s a place to start.
* Be confident about what you’re worth. Recognise that you’re bringing something unique to the Company, and that you’re worth the wage you’re requesting. Even if you’ve only just finished school or college, you still have something unique to offer and it’s important to bear that in mind as you think about salary negotiation.
* Remember also that it’s not easy finding the right person for a job. If you’ve impressed the interviewers enough to employ you, you have the upper hand and paying a little more to keep you isn’t too big a deal. So ask for a slightly higher salary than you expect.
* If the job advertisement mentions a salary range, employers will be prepared to pay more for the right candidate. If you’re a little uncomfortable asking for the top figure, choose one just above the mid-range. This gives the impression that you are worth a good wage and is a great place to start.
Assuming an advertised salary range of $30,000 to $42,000, you might say this:
“I’m expecting a salary in the region of $38,000, based on my knowledge and experience”.
* Remember that salary is not everything. If the salary is less than you hoped and the Company won’t or can’t go any higher, ask about other benefits which are important to you like training courses, financial help with further study and so on.

What specific goals, including those related to your occupation, have you established for your life?

I want to be working for an excellent company like yours in a job in which I am managing information. I plan to contribute my leadership, interpersonal, and technical skills. My long-range career goal is to be the best information systems technician I can for the company I work for.

3. How has your college experience prepared you for a business career?

I have prepared myself to transition into the work force through real-world experience involving travel abroad, internship, and entrepreneurial opportunities. While interning with a private organization in Ecuador, I developed a 15-page marketing plan composed in Spanish that recommended more effective ways the company could promote its services. I also traveled abroad on two other occasions in which I researched the indigenous culture of the Mayan Indians in Todos Santos, Guatemala, and participate din a total language immersion program in Costa Rica. As you can see from my academic, extracurricular, and experiential background, I have unconditionally committed myself to success as a marketing professional.

4. Please describe the ideal job for you following graduation.

My ideal job is one that incorporates both my education and practical work skills to be the best I can be. Namely combining my education in finance with my working knowledge of customer service operations, entrepreneurial abilities, computer skills, and administrative skills. I want to utilize my analytical expertise to help people meet their financial goals. This is exactly why I am convinced that I would be a very valuable member of the Merrill Lynch team.

What influenced you to choose this career?

My past experiences have shown me that I enjoy facing and overcoming the challenge of making a sale. Without a doubt, once I have practiced my presentation and prepared myself for objections, I feel very confident approaching people I don’t know and convincing them that they need my product. Lastly, I like sales because my potential for success is limited only by how much of myself I dedicate toward my goal. If any profession is founded on self-determinism, it surely must be sales.

At what point did you choose this career?

I knew that I wanted to pursue information systems technology about my sophomore year in college. It was then that I realized that my hobby (computers) was taking up most of my time. My favorite courses were IT courses. I also realized that I was doing computer-oriented work-study that I enjoyed so much I would have done it for free.

What specific goals have you established for your career?
My goals include becoming a Certified Financial Advisor so I can obtain a better working knowledge of financial research analysis, which would allow me contribute to my client base as a better financial consultant since I would have that extra insight into the companies they are seeking to invest in. Also this is the foundation block to advancing my career to portfolio manager or even branch office manager.

What will it take to attain your goals, and what steps have you taken toward attaining them?
I’ve already done some research on other workers at Merrill Lynch to see how they achieved similar goals. I know that Merrill Lynch encourages the pursuit and will reimburse for tuition of a graduate degree. I plan on pursuing a MBA to give me an even more extensive knowledge of business and financial analysis.

How did you handle a challenge?

* During a difficult financial period, I was able to satisfactorily negotiate repayment schedules with multiple vendors.
* When the software development of our new product stalled, I coordinated the team which managed to get the schedule back on track. We were able to successfully troubleshoot the issues and solve the problems, within a very short period of time.
* A long-term client was about to take their business to a competitor. I met with the customer and was able to change how we handled the account on a day-to-day basis, in order to keep the business

When you’re asked what your greatest weakness is, try to turn a negative into a positive. For example, a sense o- -rgency to get projects completed or wanting to triple-check every item in a spreadsheet can be turned into a strength i.e. you are a candidate who will make sure that the project is done on time and your work will be close to perfect.

* When I’m working on a project, I don’t want just to meet deadlines. Rather, I prefer to complete the project well ahead of schedule.
* Being organized wasn’t my strongest point, but I implemented a time management system that really helped my organization skills.
* I like to make sure that my work is perfect, so I tend to perhaps spend a little too much time checking it. However, I’ve come to a good balance by setting up a system to ensure everything is done correctly the first time.
* I used to wait until the last minute to set appointments for the coming week, but I realized that scheduling in advance makes much more sense.

* When I’m working on a project, I don’t want just to meet deadlines. Rather, I prefer to complete the project well ahead of schedule.
* I have exceeded my sales goals every quarter and I’ve earned a bonus each year since I started with my current employer.
* My time management skills are excellent and I’m organized, efficient, and take pride in excelling at my work.
* I pride myself on my customer service skills and my ability to resolve what could be difficult situations.

How well can you work in stressful situations?

* Stress is very important to me. With stress, I do the best possible job. The appropriate way to deal with stress is to make sure I have the correct balance between good stress and bad stress. I need good stress to stay motivated and productive.
* I react to situations, rather than to stress. That way, the situation is handled and doesn’t become stressful.
* I actually work better under pressure and I’ve found that I enjoy working in a challenging environment.
* From a personal perspective, I manage stress by visiting the gym every evening. It’s a great stress reducer.
* Prioritizing my responsibilities so I have a clear idea of what needs to be done when, has helped me effectively manage pressure on the job.
* If the people I am managing are contributing to my stress level, I discuss options for better handling difficult situations with them.

What’s motivates you?

* I was responsible for several projects where I directed development teams and implemented repeatable processes. The teams achieved 100% on-time delivery of software products. I was motivated both by the challenge of finishing the projects ahead of schedule and by managing the teams that achieved our goals.
* I’ve always been motivated by the desire to do a good job at whatever position I’m in. I want to excel and to be successful in my job, both for my own personal satisfaction and for my employer.
* I have always wanted to ensure that my company’s clients get the best customer service I can provide. I’ve always felt that it’s important, both to me personally, and for the company and the clients, to provide a positive customer experience.
* I have spent my career in sales, typically in commission-based positions, and compensation has always been a strong factor in motivating me to be the top salesperson at my prior employers.

Salary Negotiations

If you’re asked what your salary requirements are, say that they are open based upon the position and the overall compensation package. Or tell the employer you’d like to know more about the responsibilities and the challenges of the job prior to discussing salary.
Another option is to give the employer a salary range based upon the salary research you’ve done up front. Once you’ve received the offer you don’t need to accept (or reject) it right away. A simple “I need to think it over” can get you an increase in the original offer.

And if you’re ambivalent about the position a “no” can bring you a better offer too. I turned down a position I knew I didn’t want, regardless of salary, and received three follow-up phone calls upping the compensation package.

Negotiating a Raise

Be aware of company policy regarding compensation. Be flexible. Would you consider an extra couple of weeks vacation instead of a raise? I know someone who’s regularly taken time-off instead of money and now has six vacation weeks a year… Then, ask your supervisor for a meeting to discuss salary. Present your request, supported by documentation, calmly and rationally. Don’t ask for an immediate answer. Your boss is mostly likely going to have to discuss it with Human Resources and/or other company managers. Despite your best efforts, there may simply not be enough money in the budget to increase your salary or compensation package offer. The company may also not want to create inequities by paying one person more than others in a similar position. In that case, you can at least know you tried. Plus, if this is a job you really think that you’re going to love, consider whether the company culture, the benefits, and the job itself are worth it – regardless of the salary.

What Are You Passionate About?

* One of my greatest passions is helping others. When I was younger, I’ve enjoyed helping mom with household repairs. As I grew older, that habit grew and I desired to help others as well. I like helping people find solutions that meet their specific needs.
* I’m passionate about painting. I take an evening art class once a week and try to find time each weekend to paint. Painting is a good way for me to relax and even though I don’t have much talent, I do it enjoy it.
* I lost my father to pancreatic cancer and ever since then, I have spent time volunteering to help raise awareness and funding for cancer research. I volunteer for PanCan, the advocacy group, and I’m part of their volunteer network. One of the things I’m passionate is to assist in finding a cure, however I can.
* I’m passionate about making a difference. When I’m involved with a project at work I want to do my best to achieve success. I feel the same way about what I do in my personal life.
* I’m an avid skier and I like to spend weekends and vacations on the ski slopes.

“What Do People Most Often Criticize About You?

There’s no on-going criticism. I’m open to personal and professional growth and welcome the opportunity to improve.

I have a teenage daughter – few things I do are okay on her radar screen.

Why do you want this job?

* This is not only a fine opportunity, but this company is a place where my qualifications can make a difference. As a finance executive well versed in the new stock options law, I see this position as made to order. It contains the challenge to keep me on my toes. That’s the kind of job I like to anticipate every morning.
* I want this job because it seems tailored to my competencies, which include sales and marketing. As I said earlier, in a previous position I created an annual growth rate of 22 percent in a flat industry. Additionally, the team I would work with looks terrific.
* I well understand that this is a company on the way up. Your Web site says the launch of several new products is imminent. I want be a part of this business as it grows.
* Having worked through a college business major building decks and porches for neighbors, this entry-level job for the area’s most respected home builder has my name on it.
* As a dedicated technician, I like doing essential research. Being part of a breakthrough team is an experience I’d love to repeat.
* This job is a good fit for what I’ve been interested in throughout my career. It offers a nice mix of short- and long-term activities. My short-term achievements keep me cranked up and the long-term accomplishments make me feel like a billion bucks.

* I want this job selling theater tickets because I’d be good at it. I’m good at speaking to people and handling cash. I would like a job with regular hours and I’m always on time.
* Although some companies are replacing Americans with imported low-wage workers, you are standing tall. This company’s successful strategies, good reputation and values make it heads and shoulders above its competition.
* I’d fit right in as a counter clerk in your fine drycleaners. I have observed that the counter clerk position requires competence at handling several activities in quick order — customer service, payments, bagging and phones. I like multitasking and, as a homemaker, I have a lot of practice in keeping all the balls in the air.

Electrician Hands-on Training




曾经有许多人,拿着电工证,动手能力却连学徒都不如,甚至不知道工具的名称。更可怕的是由于缺乏专业训练,未能按规章制度操作,引发安全事故。这样的电工,即使找到了工作,也会于短期内被fire掉,而且以后很难再进入电工行业。俗话说行家一出手,便知有没有” 电工正是这样一个行业。

Electrician Hands-on Training


电工,是一个需要动手操作、实践性非常强的工作,并受制于当地行业规范的要求。因此,仅有理论知识,做不了电工;缺乏当地的实践经验,也做不了当地的电工。还由于电工工作对安全性有着高度要求的特殊性,使电工难成为一个可以“边做边学”的职业。也许很小的一点疏忽或者不够专业的操作,都有可能埋下巨大安全隐患和造成损害。 这也表明了安全培训和学徒培训的必要性和重要性,有如此多的此类培训即是证明。

曾经有许多人,拿着电工证,动手能力却连学徒都不如,甚至不知道工具的名称。更可怕的是由于缺乏专业训练,未能按规章制度操作,引发安全事故。这样的“电工”,即使找到了工作,也会于短期内被fire掉,而且以后很难再进入电工行业。俗话说“行家一出手,便知有没有” 电工正是这样一个行业。


针对以上难题,加拿大科技学院为了帮助各位学员能够快速成功就业, 特地推出了“动手实践+实习+就业保证班”。为的是让每一位学员结业时能获取加拿大真正的工作经验,而满足进入电工行业的要求!并且,我们凭着多年在该行业的口碑,品质和关系,于每位学员学习期满时,将为学员提供真实的实习和工作机会。


加拿大科技学院的电工实践动手班,是由本地资深电工亲自授课。从零开始,把您培养成一个出色的电工。您加入到我们当中后会发现,你不仅学到了知识与技能,还会从我们每一位已经成功的学员身上,获得宝贵的可借鉴经验。例如,你一定会遇到的一位授课老师Mr.Jim, 就是抵加后,一切从零开始,脚踏实地,一步一个脚印,不走任何“捷径”,在自己的努力和我们的帮助下,走上了成功之路。如今不仅已是一位北美大公司的机电经理,还是一位特别受学员欢迎和爱戴的“师傅”,即我们电工导师吉老师。吉老师的例子只是我们众多学员的成功的事例之一。关键的是吉老师的成功,也是我们每一位学员,都能复制的成功。

加拿大科技学院 电工评估考证,动手实习,就业提高,为您提供全方位服务!让您尽早获得稳定高薪工作!



在加拿大,电工就业状况良好,并以 工资收入高,工作稳定,而深受广大技术移民的青睐。想在安省从事电工行业,电工证书是必备的职业准入敲门砖。电工行业的证书分别有:建筑电工,工业电工,农村电工和高级电工证书。

2、工业电工:与建筑电工相比,工作比较单一,技术面比较窄小,工作范围仅限于工厂内部,出了工厂大门就不允许做范围以外的电工工作,是一种自愿拥有的电工证书,如果工厂不做严格要求没有工业电工证也可以做电工工作。这些区别在准备考电工证,做工作经验评估时更加明显,建筑电工要求技术经验全面,时间长,工业电工相对要求较少,很多在评估时,工作经验时间不足,退一个台阶 ,考工业电工证。
3、高级电工:高级电工证书是由多伦多市政府发放的Electrical contractor执照,任何一个进行电的安装独立施工的公司必须雇用一名拥有Master Electrician License的电工,而且规定一个License同一时间只可在一家公司使用。而且电力供电公司的Inspector职位或者有承接学校、医院、公寓、工业、商业与政府建筑的电气工程的工头、领班职位, 多需要这个证书。一般从事电工工作3年就有资格考高级电工证书。自己成立公司想独立承接合同就必须拥有高级电工证书.

电工主要要掌握的技能 :


一个零基础的人,拿到电工证需要有5年的学徒期。但电工这个行业承认北美以外的工作经历。对于在中国本身做过电工的人来说,如果有5年以上工作经历,就可以直接申请电工牌照考试。 也就是说这个学徒期是可以省略的,只要你能通过评审,就可以参加电工证的考试。

电工考试特点 :1.开卷考试考场会给你发一本code(很多答案就在code书里面)。2)4选1选择题(对中国移民考生很熟悉),3)如果英语不好可以自己带翻译帮助你读题考试。因此参加考试要对CODE有较好的了解,还要有比较好的加拿大本地电力、工控实际操作经验和知识。因此对做过很多年 电工的移民朋友来说,不经过相应的培训通过考试也不是很容易的事,但是对于中国的技术移民,绝大多数在国内都是考试高手,经过相应的电工培训,应付这种考试会感到很轻松。

加拿大科技学院电工考证培训班是加拿大考证培训就业效果最好的培训班, 我们有1)电工动手班,让大家在最短的时间内学会加拿大本地的实际操作技能,2)建筑电工考证班让大家熟悉用电code等知识,考到技术最全面的电工证书,3)高级电工考证班,4)PLC编程培训班,5)电工提高班为考到电工证书的朋友在行业内就业发展提供最优的平台,很多学员在获得电工证半年后经过PLC编程培训班,电工提高班培训后都得到了自己满意的高新稳定工作!尤其是著名的加拿大NAC公司几乎每处工作现场都有我们加拿大科技学院的电工学员。

  当我们怀着美丽的梦 移民来到加拿大,在度过了短暂的兴奋和激动过后,我们站在这片陌生的土地上开始了自己新的人生,新的面孔,新的风俗习惯,新的语言,新的法律体系,新的社会制度,新的地理环境。。。全新的一切令我们陶醉,同样也令我们有很多的无奈,为了生活,为了梦,我们需要工作,需要再创业!

一些实现了梦想的老移民面对这一切有着自己切肤的体验“无论你是博士,硕士,成功人士,到了加拿大都是战士”。“我们没有上过五七干校,来到加拿大我们体验到了五七干校滋味.”“我们曾经看到过农民工进城创业,来到加拿大我们经历着同样的过程!” 他们的感受,也是我们大多数移民的感受。



在选择大专课程和职业证书时,他们一般考虑的是近期目标和远期梦想,近期目标职业证书如电工,机修,仪表,水工,汽车维修,空调维修,TICO证书,PMP证书等,是自己能尽快就业获得稳定的高薪工作。在选取学校方面,他们选择能让自己考到职业证书,又能是自己拿到大专学历,逐步实现自己的远期梦想,他们会首选择工商管理BUSINESS ADMINISTATION, 为自己做回管理岗位工作,做好准备。因为这个专业课程包含有 :

1)       Business Communication商务交流 2)Business Law工商法 3)MS Office办公软件 4)Presentation skills展示技巧 5)Accounting会计基础 6)Office Practice 7)Financial Management金融管理 8)Human Resource Management人力资源管理 9)Customer Service客户服务 10)Advertising and Promotion广告运作 11) Marketing Management市场管理

学习工商管理专业1)可以提升你的语言交际能力.2)熟悉加拿大的社会法规。3)掌握办公软件的应用。4)了解企业会计,金融管理,人力资源管理知识和运作。5)熟悉市场管理和运作。用这些知识武装起来,管理大专学历加上职业证书,(管理知识和 一技和多技之长)使您在自己的工作岗位上很快成为leadperson,supervior,manager.一般来说,我们移民不缺乏管理和技术知识,我们缺的是加拿大的管理和技术经验。加拿大也不缺单纯的管理和技术人才,但是他们缺乏懂加拿大本地管理知识和懂加拿大本地技术经验的混合型人才。很多在加拿大再次成功的移民,都是这种混合型人才。

创业:在加拿大成立公司不难,但是成立公司后如何按照加拿大的规矩去运作,如何能尽量减少成本尽快实现盈利,是每个创业者的追求!大家都希望能在尽可能短的时间内掌握公司运作的基本知识,尽可能少的雇佣专业的技术人才(因为人力成本太大)。这就要求每一位创业者1)具备加拿大的管理知识和经验。最快,最佳的办法是回到学校读书,有经验丰富的老师传授这些宝贵的经验。商务管理大专(BUSINESS ADMINISTATION)无疑是最佳选择。2)为了减少雇佣技术人员的人力成本,自己考几本职业证书,取得职业许可的签字权,无疑能为初始创业者减少大量工资成本,也使自己成为这些行业的专家铺平了道路。懂管理,懂技术的混合型人才创业者,在加拿大取得成功的速度要比单纯的管理型人才或者技术型人才快很多倍。

如何能找到既可以学到管理知识又可以考取职业证书的学校呢?在多伦多这样的学校很少,加拿大科技学院就是一所能为移民朋友提供这些服务的职业大专学校。 在加拿大科技学院,凡是上第二职业大专课程的学员,在他们参加第二职业大专文凭学习的整个培训时间内,他们还可以享受免费学习加拿大科技学院周末License课程,其中包括建筑电工(309A空调制冷(313A,给水排水(306A,机修技师(433A)仪表技师(447A汽车维修技师(310S)高级电工工业电工(442ACQE注册质量管理工程师TICO证PMPCSC,CFACSSBB 等课程。

仪器仪表技师(Instrument and Control Technician-447A)因其需要知识面宽,工作适用广泛,就业薪金较高($28-50/h,加入工会可从$45/h起薪),体力劳动少,故成为当今含金量高,很热门的一个证书。









工作精细缜密:仪器仪表与控制技师主要从事控制,监侧,安装,检查,拆除,修理和更换仪器仪表设备,其中包括: a. 气动导管(Pneumatic tubing)以及电子布线系统 b. 温度传感器和指示器 c. 压力和真空传感器和指示器 d. 在实验室中各种氧和其他气体的分析设备 e. 潮湿度传感器和指示器 f. 测量速度,位置和时间传感器和指示器 g. 气度或电子的发送机以及扫描系统 h. 闭路电视系统 i. 监控和报警系统 g.航空航天检测,监控系统


一些目前即使是没有从事仪表工作的电工,也通过培训考取了仪器仪表证书。结果证明,该证起到了“护身符”的作用。 比如雇主不得不裁员电工的时候,通常会考虑留下拥有仪器仪表证的电工,显然,他们价值更高。

加拿大科技学院在开展仪器仪表证考前培训辅导方面有着其他培训机构无法比拟的优势。因为所有仪器仪表授课教师不仅都在中国科班出身,并有着多年的行业经验,来到加拿大后,全都遵循考证-就业(多数教师都曾就职于西部石油行业)的途径,再又积累了大量的本地实际工作经验。 从而真正做到了了解这个行业,形成一套理论与实践并重、考证辅导与就业帮助齐驱、并配合独家的中英文资料授课方法,成为同行佼佼者。90%以上的学员一次性通过了考试就是最好的明证!

如果一个本地人想要从事Millwright工作,无捷径可走,首先登记成为学徒,再经过漫长的9000小时的学徒期也就是4年半,才有资格参加考试,考取License。有的学徒中途改行,有的虽然完成了学徒期,但考试屡考屡败,有些要求必须由Licensed Millwright 担任的职位他们始终无法胜任,这是为什么Licensed Millwright 始终需求很大的原因。 由于十分缺乏此类人才,安省承认加国以外的相关工作经验,这对于新移民来说无疑是个福音。





Millwright是蓝领中的佼佼者。Millwright是一份属于传统产业的工作,许多本地人凭借语言的优势不愿涉足这个行业,毕竟相对于Office工作,Millwright工作稍嫌辛苦,更重要的是这份工作对从业人员的综合分析能力、思维的逻辑性和灵活性有相当的要求, 并不是每个人都能轻易胜任。具有相当头脑的白人应当早已脱颖而出,我们的行业对手往往与受过高等教育的大陆新移民来比略逊一筹。Millwright 的经验是有价值的,随着从业时间的增长,身价会越来越高,而且工作不单调。

Millwright 有证和没证,收入差别挺大,没有证的起薪,如第一年学徒,从10/小时,到了第五年学徒应该是18-19/小时。有证的Millwright起薪至少20/小时,随着工作时间的累计达到25-30元轻而易举。另外加班机会很多,许多的维修一定要在停产的状态下才能完成。这样,Millwright的年薪一般在5-6万元。另外,现在招聘Millwright有一个趋势,由于机电一体化的设备的普遍使用,许多公司希望能招聘到Multi-skilled worker,特别是小公司希望你是万金油,机械、电气、液压、气动、水暖样样全能。这样的职位起薪可达到28/小时。


Millwright的工作领域广阔。主要有以下几类:机械加工与汽车制造、食品与制药业、塑料和模具制造行业、娱乐业、提供专业Millwright Service的公司等。 人生的成功在于把握机遇,只有转变了观念,选准了方向,人生的道路才会越走越宽。有机械、电子背景的朋友们,选择一个正确的择业方向往往事半功倍,祝你们在加拿大早日落地生根,安居乐业!

加拿大科技学院,为广大有机电背景的移民开办了Millwright(443A)证书培训班,使这些朋友能在最短的时间内 ,获取加拿大工作经验,获得从业资格证书!
