  • - Today we continue our series on - job interview and resume writing skills

  • The topic of today's lesson is

  • Finding the Right Company

  • - Let's make a company profile - from all the information you gathered

  • One, what's their history

  • Two, what's their corporate identity

  • Three, what's their mission statement

  • Four, what's their public perception?

  • Good or bad?

  • - Number five, - do their values aligned with your values

  • Number six,

  • - Do they have any organizations or alliances - that they work with?

  • And what are they?

  • - All of this research will - not only help you to find the right company

  • but it will help prepare your resume

  • - and your ability to - pitch yourself during the interview

  • - Let's take a look of - what it takes to make a good cover letter

  • - For that, we must take a journey - to the success labotory

  • OK

  • Let's try to create a rough draft

  • Imagine that you're a bank teller

  • - We're going to assume that - you're applying for a job at HSBC

  • - Remember, our cover letter has to - be related to the job that we'll applying for

  • Step number one, introduce yourself

  • Take a look at this example

  • That's a great introduction,

  • because it tells you more about their past

  • It also mentions you have experience

  • - with multiple positions - in the banking industry

  • And with multiple large banks like HSBC

  • It also tells them your motivations

  • - Which is critical part of - how we pick our workers

  • And this is often left out of our resumes

  • - This description is great, - because it uses a lot of academic verbs

  • like undertakes and meets and deliver

  • and possess and applies, reduce

  • Also, there are a lot of good adjective

  • like meticulous, tight, superior, practical

  • Remember

  • A resume is not an essay

  • - They know who the subject is - so we removed and save space

  • - We must say - the most important things that we can

  • and use the fewest words that we can

  • - Question number one, - Where do you see yourself in five years?

  • - Well, ten years ago - I was very seriously injured

  • and it was very hard on me

  • I got depressed

  • - But a really nice person - came along and help me

  • - And ever since then, - I wanted to help other people

  • So I study teaching for five years

  • - and I've worked really hard - to become a teacher

  • - There were many challenges - but I made it through

  • - I've been a teacher for five years - and I love helping people

  • - And I would love to continue doing so - with your company

  • How can you picture yourself in one minute?

  • What's the most important thing to say?

  • - Well, for this, - let's imagine that we're a doctor

  • We need to cover three things

  • Who are you?

  • What are your achievements?

  • How can you help the company?

  • And why pick you? What's the result?

  • First, who am I?

  • This part can be the trickiest,

  • - because you might have too many thing to say - or you might have not enough to say

  • - The best way to get this right - is to practice and write it down

  • - I'm a general practitioner - who's spend medicine for five years

  • and now I want to be a designer

  • I love hiking

  • - This only tells us what you do - not who you are

  • - This sentence should be - a lot more like your cover letter

  • - I'm a lifelong care giver - and I love helping people,

  • that's why I became a doctor

  • - I worked in rural China - as a free health care provider,

  • because I love living close to nature

  • - and the serving the person - who needed the most

  • Good

  • Second, how can you help your company?

  • - You need to speak directly - to their needs here, not your wants

  • I can add value to the company

  • - because of my great experience - and my strong work ethic

  • It's okay but it's not specific enough

  • - I will work long hours - and strive to do the right thing

  • to bring our visions to the nest level

  • You can count on me to go the extra mile

  • - This lesson is the final on our series on - Job Interview skills and Resumes writing skills

  • Today, we will do the final reviews

  • Today, we're going to cover the key points

  • - and remember - what we need to do for our job search

  • But first

  • - A look back at all of the topics - we've covered in the series

  • In lesson one, an introduction

  • Lesson two, finding the right company

  • Lesson three, cover letters and references

  • Lesson four, we made our resume

  • - In lesson five and six, - we prepared for the job interview itself

  • Answering questions and the elevator speech

  • Now, are you ready to go?

  • Yes!

  • Let's review anyway

  • - Now, I know from being a teacher - for a really long time

  • - that most, the biggest part of learning - is just not quitting

  • - So we must review - what we've learned frequently

  • - Actually, teachers often say - frequency equals fluency

  • Frequency equals fluency

  • What does that mean?

  • Practice, practice, practice
