美國軟體工作面試的三種錄取類型

大家在美國找工作時,面試是必要的過程。不論是電話面試或親自面試,每個公司面試官都有其一套徵人標準來評估面試者是否被錄取。以下三種類型是我這幾年來所看到的情況。

一次定江山型

不少軟體公司面試官本身有能力決定是否錄取面試者。不論是電話面試或親自面試,只要雙方相談甚歡,一次面試就定江山,面試者幾天之內即可知道被錄取的消息。這種情況相信是大家最樂意見到的。

5 關斬 6 將型

很多軟體公司會安排幾階段的面試。以電話面試而言,假設有 3 階段, 一階段有 30 分鐘,若面試官覺得面試者第 1 關表現不錯,才會進到第 2 關,等你 3 關全通過,幾天之內面試者即可知道被錄取的消息。如果是親自面試,也是一樣的道理。

現在很多軟體公司喜歡先用電話面試先篩選合格的面試者,之後再邀請合格的面試者到公司進行幾階段的面對面面試。這種過 5 關斬 6 將型的面試門檻很高。如果你能在眾多的候選人中被錄取,相信你是會很有成就感的。

全數表決通過型

很多軟體公司的面試官一次會安排幾位同事或部屬和面試者一起進行對面對面面試。這時候面試者需輪番回答在場面試官的所有問題。待面試完畢後,所有面試官需全部一致通過這個面試者夠勝任才行。只要 1-2 面試官持反對意見,這個面試者也不會被錄取。

你也許會問是否存在面試官多數表決通過也行呢? 就我所知,這種機率應該比較少才對。因為要錄取一個人所必須考量的因素很多,就如同上述過 5 關斬 6 將型的面試一樣,也需所有面試官通過才行。既然有面試官持反對意見,他們寧可重新找人。這種全數表決通過型的面試類型挑戰性很大。如果你能在眾多的候選人中被錄取,相信你是會很有成就感的。

美國軟體公司的面試是很有挑戰性的。一次面試成功不代表下次的面試還會成功,一次面試失敗不代表下次的面試還是會失敗。從不同的面試經驗獲得面試技巧才是最重要的。

Hi Ray,
I came across your blog when i am searching for H1B jobs. I have learned a lot of valueable information from your blog, thank you for sharing with us. I have been looking for a job for a while and so for no any luck. Do you happen to know when can I get one in LA area? My H1B is going to be expired in this coming Aug. Do you have any information about searching jobs? Thanks in advance.

Ray said...

No idea about your job search and your current H1B status. You can try some job sites and still submit your resume. It takes time to get a job and no one knows when you get a job.

i Ray,
Thanks for replying. I meant"where to get one and not when to get one". ^^
You have mentioned getting a job through the recruiters in your blog, how does it work?do you mind recommend some?

I don’t look at people’s resume any more because I am busy with my current project and I have no time to handle it.

Well, still thank you. Good day.
