    LESSON 课文

    What you WEAR to an interview is the second most important factor in making a good first impression. First you should KNOW the company. While you are researching the company, visit the office and take a look at how the staff is dressed. SEE WITH YOUR OWN EYES what the employees are wearing. Then for the interview, try to dress in a similar way. If they are all dressed in a suit and tie, then you should dress in a suit and tie. Take care to note if the ties are solid colors or a mix of colors. If the women employees wear long skirts, then women should wear a long skirt. If employees wore a casual shirt with no tie, you should wear a casual shirt with no tie. If the women all wear pants, you should wear pants. If you see some people dressing casually and others dressing formally, IT IS ALWAYS BETTER TO DRESS A LITTLE BIT MORE FORMALLY.

    面试的时候所穿服装是给对方下良好印象的第二个重要因素。首先你应该了解你所应聘的公司。在对所应聘的公司进行研究时,先拜访公司并观察那里的工作人员的着装,亲眼观察你所应聘的公司职员的着装,然后准备去面试,尽量穿同类的服装。如果你所应聘的公司职员穿西服系领带,那么你也应该穿西服打领带去面试。留心领带的颜色是单色还是混合色。如果公司的女性职员身穿长裙,女性应聘者也应穿长裙去面试。如果公司的女性职员穿短裙不系领带,那么女性应聘者也应穿短裙不系领带,而应穿休闲衬衫并不系领带。如果公司的女性职员 都穿长裤,那么你也应穿长裤。如果看到公司职员有些穿着休闲,有些则穿着正式,那么,穿正式一些的服装总是比穿休闲服装要好一些。

    Being able to FIT IN (to belong and get along with the other employees) is very important. The interviewer will use this first impression to decide if you can work well with the other employees.

    能够与周围环境和睦相处也很重要。面试官会利用面试的第一印象来决定是否你能与其他同事和睦相处。

    Another important impression, is one that the employer gets from reading letters of recommendation from your references. Your reference include helpful teachers or old bosses who liked the way you worked. Your teacher or boss will write a letter describing your good qualities.

    另一个重要印象是面试者从阅读你的推荐信来获得的。你的推荐人包括那些对你有帮助的老师和欣赏你的工作方式的前任老板。你的老师或前任老板会写一封推荐信,描述你的优点。

    BELOW IS A SAMPLE RECOMMENDATION. READ IT CAREFULLY, THEN ANSWER THE FOLLOWING QUESTIONS.

    下面是一封推荐信的样本。认真阅读并回答下列问题。

    Ed Wilkes Booth

    To whom it may concern:
    Mercedes is a determined, extremely motivated worker whose understanding of English is impressive and at the same time, useful in real life situations. Most secretaries see the job as a thing to do only eight hours a day. Mercedes, however, has made the extra effort to enjoy her position to the point where she will gladly work nights to get important projects done. I met Mercedes more than two years ago, when she was my assistant's secretary. I was so moved by her dedication that I asked her to become my personal secretary. Mercedes' eagerness and dedication to my company helped inspire me to continue and enlarge my department. She has been a model for hope both in and out of the workplace. In addition, she has some translating experience. Such experiences are as rare as her honest kindness and willingness to help others around her. I have even observed her tutoring other employees with their spoken English. I do believe Mercedes will be an asset to which ever company she chooses to settle in, and I highly recommend her for your company.

    Sincerely yours,
    Ed Wilkes Booth
    General Manager
    OU Ltd.

    致有关人士:
    梅塞德斯是一个意志坚定、有高度积极性的人,她的英语水平给人留下很深的印象,而且在现实生活中很有用。大多数秘书把工作看作是每天只做八个小时的事情,而梅塞德斯却额外努力,喜欢该职位。她愿意晚上加班将重要的工作做完。我两年前认识梅塞德斯,那时她是我助手的秘书。她的奉献精神深深地打动了我,因此我请求她做我的个人秘书。梅塞德斯的热情与对我公司的奉献激励着我扩大我的部门。她已成为工作场所内外希望的楷模。此外,她还有一些翻译的经验。这样的经验与她真诚的善意与热心一样珍贵,帮助着她身边的人。我甚至还观察到她辅导其他的雇员说英语口语。我确实认为梅塞德斯会成为她所选择的任何一家公司的资产,因此我极力向贵公司推荐她。
