 久保認為寫一封好的Cover Letter應該具備以下8大元素:

 

1.要為自己度身訂造

2.聯絡方法一定要清晰

3.清楚、不要太累贅

4.融入工作內容的關鍵字

5.不要平舖直敍

6.不要過一頁

7.寫出一個故事,一個關於你想應徵工作相關的故事

8.不要複製履歷表的內容

Dear Ms Chan,

As part of my management course, I made a company visit to the bank of China around 3 years ago and greatly impressed by the vibrant culture and efficient operations. It is my pleasure to be applying for the position of management trainee and to potentially contribute my diverse skillset to the bank after my final years of studies at the Chinese University of Hong Kong.

第一段:
求職信一個自我推銷的過程,嘗試跟HR建立情感聯結。這段落的內容需要簡潔,意思要到位。重要的是要清晰表達意向,絕對不能寫太多或太硬銷。

I am a naturally inquisitive individual who likes to be challenged. My strong academic background including a Grade Point Average of 3.95 last year is that testimony to my desire to learn and apply what I have learned to produce results. As a well-rounded individual, I was also the President of the Society of Business Administration(BASO) where I led 12 people in achieving the high event attendance rate in all events in 15 years, and the experience allowed me to further develop my leadership skills and teamwork skills.

My particular interest in Finance and Human resources, both my concentrations in the Chinese University of Hong Kong drove me to the pursuit of opportunities in the banking sector pre-graduation, including serving as an intern in the human resources department as J.P Morgan last summer where my personal as well as business relationships with people from all walks of life.The internship also allowed me to continue to ask insightful questions stimulating idea exchange between my mentors, my colleagues and I, which I learned a great deal from and further cemented my determination in paving my path in this industry.

第二、三段:
1.瞭解招聘廣告,針對性的選擇自身的技能加以敍述。多使用主動語態來描述自身能力跟職位相匹配的地方,切記不要沒有針對性地亂寫一通。

2.公司非常看重應徵者未來的潛力。根據招聘廣告所表述,這份MT的工作比較注重全方位的能力。他們對於應徵者的溝通能力,團隊能力和領導能力等的全方位能力有比較高的要求。

3.具體列出相關的社團與工作經驗,表述這些經歷如何有機會讓你能磨練有關的能力。

S a passionate, inquisitive young leader with a knack for communication and collaboration. I am prepared to become a future global leader for one of Hong Kong’s leading banks, and I look forward to further expanding my skillset and overcoming challenges together with the bank of China.

第四段:
再次表達你對公司與職位的濃厚興趣。同時間需要表述自我要求還有要讓自己不斷進步的決心。
