在美國找工作除了丟履歷表(resume)外,自己也要主動出擊

現在美國景氣不好,不論何種原因而導致你現在正在面臨找工作的壓力時,依照我以前找工作的經驗,我歸納成下面幾點,和大家分享:

1. 準備一份 3-5頁印象深刻的履歷表,文法絕對不能有錯。自己有多少年的技能及經驗一定要寫在第一頁。若自己每頁的履歷表能做到置入性技能行銷那更好。

2. 準備不同職位需求的履歷表。用一份履歷表闖天下很難。

3. 每天大樹法則至少丟 100 封履歷表出去。若 7 天內沒人理你,你必須重新修改履歷表。你自己也要檢討為何沒有人回應你。也有可能你的信件被當作 Spam 被丟到垃圾桶內。

4. 除了丟履歷表外,若看到就業網站有你喜歡的職位,也提及相關人士的名字及電話時,不要害羞,主動打電話給他們詢問職位內容。要訓練自己的膽量及英語能力。

5. 每天分配時間丟履歷表外,不要忘記要 K 書應付面試考題。因為考題 70% 通常都是自己不會的。另外 30% 自己都會,但是卻答不出來。

6. 把握每次的面試經驗,列出面試官可能會問的問題。若面試考題不會,面試後自己一定要去找答案,因為下次自己可能還會遇到相同的問題。

7. 找機會聯絡獵人頭公司的 recruiters 是一個不錯的方式。

8. 自己不要有任何的假期,以找工作為最大優先考量。隨時提醒自己不要懈怠。

找工作是一項耐力戰及體力戰, 隨時提醒自己想辦法再接再厲,自己也不要灰心,老天爺一定會給你機會的。

Hi Ray,

I am in Salt Lake City, Utah. Would you have any good recruitment agencies' contact by any chance? I am looking for HR job but I just got here 1 month ago...

I love your blog, btw, it has really been very helpful to me when getting to know more about the US from a Taiwanese point of view!

This is my email: ct.sherry.wu@gmail.com

Thanks a lot!

Ray said...

Sherry,what's your current working status? Green card or H1B??

Stephen said...

Hi Ray, How do I find a job in USA whether I don't have green card and H1B? I am a student in Canada. Otherwise, could you review my resume and give me some advises? Thanks!

Ray said...

Stephen,
Just search online and find how many companies sponsor people's H1 Visa. If you are talented , that's not a problem. Just keep trying.

Lemon said...

Hi Ray,
請問有那個job board會有所有提供h1b visa的工作機會嗎?
