美国找工作,面试时会遇上哪些问题?

0
696

这是我来美国后,经历的大大小小所有实习面试、电话面试、工作面试的全部面试问题,再加上我在网上收纳前人的总结,最后集结成的这么一个数据库。

红色的,是我真实经历过的曾被问过的问题。粗体红色加下划线的,是必问的高频问题。

不敢说100%都在这个数据库内,但是基本不会跑出这个范围了。我面试前的准备,一般就是看着这些问题,面对空气一阵狂说。。

和大家分享。一起奋斗,一起进步。

记住一条黄金法则: Its NOT about you! It’s all about them!

永远站在聘人单位的角度想问题:他们想要什么想的人,他们想听什么样的答案。关心他们的需求,提供他们的需求。

不要说类似这样的话:“这符合我的职业规划……”“我能学到很多,我能提高自己的专业水平……blablabla”。

Noboday cares about YOUR career path!

把你的思维转变成:你们想要什么?你们想找什么人?我该怎么贡献我的知识和技术去帮助你们实现你们的需要?

记住工作面试的真相:他们不是在找那个有知识技能的人,他们是在找他们最喜欢的人。

面试不是考试,不是人家问一句,你答一句。面试是交流,是认识和了解对方,是看你们来电不来电。

Chemistry的结果,你控制不了。你能控制的,是微笑,是倾听,是回应,是让自己轻松,也让对方轻松。

缘分这法则,面试世界里照样适用。比较坑爹。不是你的,纵使你有万般武艺也没撤;是你的,你就是整场笑而不语,人家都要定你了。

【真正的问题】

面试问题准备之前干嘛?——猜题!

想想如果你是recruiter,你得问面试者什么问题?

面试潜台词的四大疑问

——这些问题,他们永远不会说出口“问”你,但是所有的数据库问题其实都是在围绕这四条“中心思想”:

-Are you capable of doing this job? 你丫到底能不能干这工作?有这个技术能力不?

-Can you fit in this team? 你这人很刁吗?够随和不?以后可别反倒来欺负我们老员工。

-What value can you bring? 你就算有能力,你能贡献出啥来?能帮我们这儿改进得更好吗?

-Do you want this job? 你胃口大不?太贵了我们要不起啊。。

【数据库】

1、Why did you apply for this job?

几乎所有电面试、面面试的第一个问题。

算是一个开场白,好继而展开后面的对话。

这个问题如果之前都没想明白,准备好,对答如流的话——那后面也就别玩了。

Tips:不要说,这个工作适合你,适合你的职业方向。把思维转变成:你的所学,正是能贡献给对方的。

2、What can you do for us that someone else cannot?

= Tell me something makes you different/special from other candidates.

≈ Why should we hire you? = now it’s your chance to explain you are a good candidate.

问题的问法稍有不同,但是大体意思是一样的,就是给你一个机会,说服他们,你比其他候选人出彩的地方。

3、Why do you want to work for us? 

= Why do you want to work here?

≈What do you know about our company/organization/ our culture?

这个很明显,就是想知道你了解不了解他们公司。

答案准备得越细越好。

举个简单例子:如果你说,“贵公司上个月在X市举办的业内年会上,CEO就XX问题的演讲,给我留下深刻印象。我觉得这是XX行业的新动向。这也引起了竞争公司XX和XX的关注……”

就比你说“我知道贵公司是买鞋的”——要有力度的多。

4、Can you tell us a little more about your experience at XXXX company?

这是传说中的“过简历”。

就是对方按着你的简历,逐一叫你谈谈过去的经历。

回答的关键是:要往你现在申请的职位上贴合。

5、What is your salary range?

永远不要先开口提钱。

就算对方提了,也要说:I am looking for a good opportunity, money is not really my motivator right now.

对方再逼问,就说:“May I know your salary range you would like to offer?”

【以上是大五高频必问,后面是更多的数据库:】

How did you know this job? Where did you find it?

Tell me about yourself.

号称第一高频,有趣的是,我从来没有被问过这个问题。

看来面试官其实在面试之前,已经了解你不少了。

Do you know about our product/service? What do we do?

Tell me a little bit more about relevant experience = what previous experience do you have that would be beneficial to this job.

还是“过简历”问题。

What do you find most attractive about this position? What seems least attractive?

What do you look for in a job? What are the top 3 things?

Can you give me your definition/understanding of this position?

How long would it take you to make a meaningful contribution to our company?

How long would you stay with us?

We think your resume suggests that you may be over-qualified for this position

What do you think is the most difficult thing/challenge?

What important trends do you see in our industry?

自认为这是一个很厉害的刁钻问题,还好没有被问过。

Why are you leaving your present job?

不要抱怨这不好,那不好的。

In your current/past job, what do you like the most? The least?

Describe an idea day of your life, from waking up.

这是我面过的最神经的问题。。不知道那个面试官从哪淘出来这么无聊的问题。

What kind of management style would you like? = what kind of boss do you feel work best with

问这个问题的一般都是你将来的老板。我认为,他们问这个问题,简直就是他们没有安全感的体现。

What is something you want your current (or past) manager do better?

What type of co-worker or boss do you like / dislike?

安全感啊,安全感。。

How do you see yourself in 5 years? = what are your long-term goals?

老掉牙的问题,面试官特爱问。但是真的有什么作用吗?我觉得这个问题就是个花瓶。

What’s the most successful thing you have accomplished? How did you success? = what steps did you take to accomplish this?

我一般就回答:姐原来基础不好,咬牙奋进,不远万里来到你们美帝国主义国家,费劲巴力地完成硕士学位,姐容易吗。

And what is your biggest failure so far?

What your previous co-workers/boss/friends would say about you?

Have you done anything to further your experience?

Where else have you applied?

说几个竞争对手,吓唬吓唬他们。

How are you when you are under pressure? = How do you alleviate stress? Can you give us examples?

Tell us an example of a difficult situation that you were able to overcome? = example of the toughest challenge you have ever faced.

我一般就说说我采访《阿凡达》导演詹姆斯喀麦隆的故事,百试不爽。

How do you deal with tight deadlines?  Can you give us examples?

What is your motivation?

表现出,你对你的行业的热爱,表现出你有充分的理由热爱。

What is your greatest strength?

这职业最要求啥,你的strength就是啥。

What is your biggest weakness? =What area do you think you need to improve?

不要说你是工作狂,你是完美主义者。对方听了会吐的。

Are you good at working in a team? Examples? What was your role in that team? What did you contribute to the team?

How to deal with team’s different opinions?

What can you contribute to make the teamwork easier/better?

How to deal with troubleshooting?

Would you rather work on a project all by yourself? Or under some supervision?

我感脚,这也是你上司那安全感问题。。。

Tell me a suggestion you have made that was implemented? = Tell me an example you have convinced someone to do something that they were not interested in doing.= How do you sell your idea?

面试前要准备很多例子,一说让距离,就往上套。

Describe a time in which you did not meet your manager’s expectations, how did you handle it?

What work environment would you like the most? The least?

面试的公司是啥工作环境,你就说你喜欢啥工作环境。

What’s the harshest criticism you received from superior? = give me an example of a time your were criticized and how did you respond to criticism?

Why do you want to be XXXX(你的职业)?

What are you passionate about?

What is the last thing you read about our company other than our website? = tell our latest news.

答案要细致化。不要说的太笼统。

How do you define success? How do you value success?

How do you cope with rejection?

What do you think about creativity? How to be creative?

当时这个问题,彻底把我问傻了。这个问题太大了吧。

Tell us two projects you did. One succeeded, one failed

还是举例。一定要准备很充足的例子。

Give examples of your creativity/analytical skill/managing ability/detail-organized.

What tools/methods do you use to keep organized?

If you have several projects at the same time, how do you manage them?

Why did you come to US? Why do you want to stay in US?

以为会被问,从来没被问。

What was the toughest decision you ever had to make?

When you get a new task, what would you do?

【轮到你问面试官的问题】

面试结束后,面试官都会让你也来提问题。这是一个关键环节。问题提得好了,会给你大大加分。

关于此职位:

Why is this position open?

Is this position a new or replacement position?

If replaced – May I know what went wrong? What are the things you would like to see changed?

If new—What are you expectations?  What would your ideal candidate be like?

Can you give me detailed understanding about what my days might be like?

To you, what is the ideal candidate like? = What person are you looking for?

What particular expertise/skills do you value the most for this position?

How do you see me contributing?

How do you see this role evolving?

关于这个公司或这个部门:

What are the specific challenges you are facing?

Who is the key/primary audience?

Who are the key competitors?

What does success look like to you?

What is your short-term / long-term goal?

How much time/budget/resources do you want to spend on XXX project/team/department?

套近乎:

How long have you been working here?

What made you decide to join this company?

What attracts you? What do you like of working here?

【最后,奉献一小段电话跟进独白】

网上提交简历后,如果想跟进,建议1-2周后打电话,这么问:

Hello, my name is XX. I submitted my application for your XX position a couples weeks ago. I am just calling to follow up, and want to make sure my materials were received.

May I know what is the time frame for the hiring process?
