干货|英国求职奇迹

就业,是每个毕业生都会面临的问题。相信大家都清楚,国内找工作竞争非常激烈,在英国,情况也是非常严重的。如何找到一份适合自己的工作呢?

 

中国人在英国找工作,要考虑的问题比回中国来得更多,并且更复杂。首先,我们的语言以及文化方面,中国留学生和英国本土学生或者欧盟学生都有一定的差距;其次,在英国工作,需要tier2工作签证,这也给想要留在英国工作的学生造成了很大的困扰。所以在找工作之前一定要提前做好调查,你申请的公司是否是你想要从事的行业,又或者你申请的公司有没有资格可以担保你的签证,以及该公司的工签名额是否能提供给你。

 

对于在哪里工作的问题,同学们一定也会存在着这样一个误区:大城市工作机会更多,所以一窝蜂的往伦敦、曼城以及伯明翰钻。然而事实恰恰相反,近期英国著名找工作网站Adzuna对英国50个城市针对“英国最易和最难找工作的10个城市”进行研究调查。其显示结果也是大跌眼镜,其中亚伯丁(Aberdeen)、吉尔福特(Guildford)以及剑桥(Cambridge)被誉为英国最好找工作的城市,首府伦敦虽然机会多,但是仅仅排第七位。伯明翰更是上榜英国最难找工作的城市前5名。所以小编建议:大家不要盲目的往大城市跑,要网上先看好工作性质和地点再做决定。人人都像你一样往大城市去了,竞争者一多,就算机会也多也不一定对你找工作有帮助。

 

另外,招聘就是“个人比人的过程”,想要脱颖而出,主要还是取决于自己。如果想要毕业后在英国继续工作,首先要打造自己,提高自己的能力。那么,要如何让HR认为你是他需要的人才呢?出彩的CV和Cover Letter是必不可少的。针对不同的公司不同的岗位,都需要有不同的Cover Letter和CV,网上有很多CV的模板,大家需要多花点时间去准备,有的同学有国内工作经验在写CV的时候切记要多关注一下自己的工作内容(因为很有可能你写的国外HR看不懂)。如果有需要有必要的时候也可以咨询学校或者专业的求职培训机构获取帮助。毕竟这两样材料在大部分公司考虑“是否会邀请你来面试”起着很大的决定因素。

求职网站Reed给出cover letter模板:

Opening the letter

Once you’ve covered the letter writing basics (address, hiring manager’s name if you have it), the opening paragraph should be short and to the point. Explain what job it is you’re applying for and where you found the vacancy.

Feel free to mention the website by name (e.g. ‘as advertised on reed.co.uk’) or, if someone referred you to the contact, mention their name in this section.
Example:
I wish to apply for the role of IT Manager, currently being advertised on reed.co.uk. Please find enclosed my CV for your consideration.

Second paragraph – Why are you suitable for the job?

Briefly describe your professional and academic qualifications that are relevant to the role and ensure you refer to some of the skills listed in the job description.

If you have no specific academic or vocational qualifications to cite, use your relevant experience to win merit. If you’re lacking experience, use personal skills or attributes to show what makes you the perfect fit for the role.

Example:
As you can see from my attached CV, I have over three years’ experience in the IT Industry, and I believe the knowledge and skills built up during this time make me the perfect candidate for the role.

Third paragraph – What can you do for the company?

Use practical examples to emphasise what you can do for the company. These might be performance-based, and could include examples from previous positions, your current job or even from your academic career.

Always make sure your examples are as quantifiable and pertinent as possible. ‘Increased revenue by x%’, for instance, sounds a lot more impressive than simply stating you ‘Increased revenue’.

Other (role-specific) examples include ‘drove x% more traffic to the website during my time in employment’, ‘an increase in students grades by x’ and ‘achieved a first class distinction grade in my dissertation on x’.

Example:
In my current role as Senior Marketing Executive at Software Company X Ltd, I have been responsible for increasing incoming client enquiries for our B2B product lines by 156% in under 12 months, which helped the business increase its revenue by 55% year-on-year.

Fourth paragraph – Reiterate

Here’s where you reiterate your interest in the role and why you would be the right fit for the company.

Example:
I am confident that I can bring this level of success with me to your company and help IT Company LTD build upon their reputation as one the UK’s fastest-growing software houses. With my previous experience and expertise, I believe I can hit the ground running and start actively contributing to the business as soon as possible.

Thank you for your time and consideration. I look forward to meeting with you to discuss my application further.

Closing the letter

Thank the employer for their time. It is also a good opportunity to indicate that you’d like to meet with the employer for an interview.

Sign off your cover letter with ‘Yours sincerely’ (if you know the name of the hiring manager)/’Yours faithfully’ (if you do not), and your name.

Example:
Thank you for your time and consideration. I look forward to meeting with you to discuss my application further.

Yours sincerely,

[Your name]
