二、英文履歷5大原則 5 Tricks & Tips

1. Customize your résumé for each job position 為你的職位量身訂做一份履歷

Make sure that your résumé is targeted at a specific job position, and not a general field. This will also help you stay on track and relevant. You also need to keep in mind that unless you’re applying for a creative position, your résumé should not have any fancy borders or designs.

確認你的履歷定位在明確的職業位置,而不是一個籠統的範圍。這會幫助你在應有的軌道上並且是切題的。你還必須留意,除非你在應徵的是一個需要創意的職位,否則你的履歷不應該有各種花俏的框邊與設計。

2. Talk about your accomplishments 說說你的成就

Don’t just describe your previous job. You should also emphasize your accomplishments and goals/targets that you reached during your employment. Use action verbs to accentuate what you’ve achieved.

別只描述到你之前的工作,你應該強調你在任職時的成績和目標。用動詞(敘述句)來加強你曾經做過什麼事。

3. Show them numbers 用數字說話

When talking about accomplishments (Point 2), you’re also recommended to try to quantify your accomplishments. For example, give them solid statistics and numbers that will show how you increased the company’s quarterly sales.

當你談論的你的成績時(第二點),你可以試著數量化你的你曾經達成過的事。比如說:提供確實的統計和數字來呈現你如何提升公司每一季度的業績。

4. Say ‘NO’ to irrelevance 對「不切題」說不

Always stay relevant. Don’t add anything extra if it doesn’t raise the quality of your résumé and if it has nothing to do with the job you want.

保持相關性。若增加額外的東西,無法提升你履歷的品質或是與你的工作不相關,那就別加。

5. Format. Format. FORMAT. 格式!格式!!格式!!!

This definitely goes without saying but you really need to proofread, edit, and revise your format, depending on the length. Résumés should really be one page only. Check your margins and font size, font style, bolded words, italics and underlines. Use these tools wisely.

這絕對是不用再說了,你必須依據履歷的長度來校對、編輯和修改你的格式。履歷應該只能有一頁。檢查你的邊界、字形大小、字體、粗體字、斜體字與底線。明智的使用這些工具

 

三、履歷構成要素 Résumé Components

Résumé Sample

 

1. Provide your full name, contact information and address.

提供你的全名,聯絡方式和住家地址。

2. The objective should summarize the goal of this résumé: what the applicant has to offer and the job that he/she seeks.

寫履歷的目的應該是以概括整個履歷為目標:應徵者可以提供什麼是這個職位所需要的。

3. Mention all related technical proficiencies and skills. Avoid vague statements like ‘good communication skills.’

提及各種相關的技術專業和技能。請避免模糊地陳述,像是「好的溝通能力」。

4. List your professional work experience from the current/most recent to the earliest. Part-time gigs and short-term work should be voided unless it adds value to your résumé.

列出你的專業工作經驗,時間由最近到遠。兼職打工和短時間的工作應該避免列出,除非它能提升履歷的內容。

5. Typically, you don’t need to mention any education before post-secondary education, unless it’s unavailable, in which case you can just provide your highest degree of education.

實際上,你不必提高中以前的教育,除非是肄業,在這個情況下你可以提供你的最高學歷就好。

6. Always mention that references are available instead of attaching them along with the resume. Make sure you give your references a heads up!

如有推薦人的話,不需要附在履歷表上,只需要提說如果需要的話可以另外附上。不過要確認你有事先提醒你的推薦人並說他們有可能會接到這通電話喔!


Whether you are a fresh graduate out of school or in between jobs, a quality résumé is a skill that will bring only good. Always remember to check for spelling errors, proper formatting, and have others proofread it a few times before you submit them. Good luck!

不管你是剛畢業的社會新鮮人或是正在待業中的人,一個優質的履歷是一個只會帶來好處的技能。要小心地檢查拼字的錯誤、合適的格式,並且在送出之前給他人校對幾次。祝你求職順利!
