FacebookWhatsAppTelegramEmailCopy Link

見工面試,耳熟能詳的問題有:「你覺得自己有甚麼長處/優點及缺點/短處?」相信這條問題對求職者來說算是「老生常談」的範疇,睇落簡單,但面試官背後用意為何?其實在短短一至兩分鐘的答案裏面,未來僱主已可通過你的自述判斷你的自我認知程度,從而考慮你是否該空缺的適當人選。所以這條問題,既可成就你在僱主心目中的正面形象,亦可破壞整個面試的觀感。

回應優點缺點的Do’s & Don’ts

DO:自我代入job description

當被問到:「你覺得自己有甚麼長處/優點及缺點/短處」時,宜因應該份空缺的job description代入幾項你能勝任該工作的優點項目,例如該份工作需要與不同部門合作,你可強調溝通技巧是你的長處,並舉例說明之。同樣道理,當輪到自述缺點時,不宜點出與該職位有衝突的缺點。

DO:將缺點扭負為正

當被問及缺點時,即使提及自己「是個過份緊張的人」,也宜用正面結論作結,如「經過上年某個大project之後,體會到team work的難能可貴,因而學識不再自我放大,並信任組員會發揮互相幫助及合作的精神。」

Don’t:表現過份自信

自信是成功關鍵,不過過度自信反而顯得不夠真誠,例如自誇自己在過去工作中樣樣攞滿分,前僱主對自己讚不絕口等等,這些欠缺謙卑的自誇台辭會讓面試官覺得你不夠自然,甚至顯得自大。

Don’t:不要為缺點感到不安

人無完美,缺點的存在尤如優點,是必然的,所以不必為此感到忐忑。如果你被問到「你的缺點是甚麼時」,報之以「我沒有缺點」這類空泛的答案,只會讓面試官覺得你一方面不坦誠公佈,一方面欠缺自省能力,沒能意識到個人的不足之處,對面試絕對有百害而無一利。

Don’t :不要否定自己

回答優點缺點這類問題時,自我認知很重要,但也要懂得回答的策略,尤其在談及缺點那一面,不要給出一個全然否定的答案,例如告訴未來僱主:「由於我的分析能力很差,如果申請金融行業的工作,不會太勝任。」

以下提供你的優點/缺點建議答案(英文版)

“What are your strengths?”

Sample #1

“I like being proactive in the workplace as it keeps me motivated and engaged. When I’m assigned a task or a project, I don’t simply work to meet the requirements. I go above and beyond, do my research, analyze what other companies in the industry are doing, and think of ways to do it better. My proactive attitude is what earned me the ‘Best Employee of the Year’ award two years in a row in the previous organization I worked for.”

Sample #2

“I have excellent interpersonal skills, and I’ve been told the same by my managers, subordinates, and even my company’s partners in one form or another on many occasions. I’ve always understood how crucial it is for human resources personnel to show empathy, which is why I consciously work on improving my listening and communication skills when interacting with other employees. I’ve also been working with a leadership coach for the past year and half, which has greatly honed my human skills. One of my career goals is to continue improving my soft skills so that I can impact the workplace for the better.”

Sample #3

“Sales is my forte. I have the exceptional ability to understand customers’ needs and provide them with the right solutions that don’t just meet their needs, but surpasses them. I have exceeded my sales goals every quarter by at least 20%. I also pride myself on having built great relationships, which resulted in increased trust in and loyalty to the brand.”

Sample #4

“Content writing is my greatest strength. I can easily see through brands, grasp the image each tries to convey, and write persuasive and highly engaging content that complements its marketing efforts. Whether it’s social media posts or newsletters, the content I write converts into leads and ultimately sales for the company.”

Sample #5

“I take pride in my ability to provide excellent customer support and overcome potentially challenging circumstances. With three years of experience as a customer service representative, I’ve learned how to properly understand and address customer problems, especially during times of crisis. I have excellent communication skills, which enable me to deal effectively with customers, team members, and executives.”

Sample #6

“I possess great leadership skills. During my time as the Head of Department, I successfully put together a new team that manages influencer relations and coordinated training programs for all team members to ensure that everyone was not only comfortable, but also confident in their new positions. As a result, the marketing team was able to see a 15% increase in leads in the first quarter.

What are your weaknesses?

Sample #1

“I would say that one of my weaknesses is that I focus too much on the details. With any given task, I always find something that needs to be changed or improved each time I go over it, which can sometimes be a vicious cycle. To make sure that I don’t spend too much time obsessing over minute details, I give myself deadlines for revisions. This helps ensure that I’m not making changes till the last minute.”

Sample #2

“Due to my enthusiastic nature, I sometimes bite off more than I can chew and end up with a pile of tasks that causes me to feel overwhelmed and stressed. To work more efficiently and effectively, I downloaded a project management software that can be accessed from all of my devices so that I can see how much work I have at any given time before deciding to accept tasks. This method has proved to be great so far!”

Sample #3

“I sometimes find it difficult to ask for help in the workplace out of fear of burdening others with my work. However, I recently came to realize that it’s sometimes a lot more beneficial for myself and the company if I reach out when I don’t how to move forward with a task as my colleagues may have specific knowledge to share that can make my work better. I have certainly been able to produce higher-quality work as a result of seeking guidance.”
Sample #4

“I’m very career-focused to the point where my work-life balance is, well, not balanced. I soon realized that, when I neglect my personal needs, it tends to have a negative effect on my productivity at work. To help myself do better in all aspects of my life, I started following a life coach online whose advice, like taking short breaks at work and turning my phone on silent when enjoying dinner, has proven extremely useful in helping me be the best version of myself.”

Sample #5

“I’m not the best when it comes to being organized. While it hasn’t impacted my performance, I’ve come to realize that a tidy desk and a clean inbox could only improve my efficiency. I now block off half an hour on my calendar every week to organize my physical and digital space, and I’ve seen it improve the way I work.”

Sample #6

“I tend to hold back on providing feedback out of fear that I might offend my colleagues. Recently, one of my team members voluntarily came up to me and gave me very useful feedback on one of my presentations, which is when I realized that when it’s done constructively, giving feedback can bring out the best in a person instead of dampening their spirit. I have since been working on providing my feedback in a kind and thoughtful manner so that others can benefit just as I have.”

新冠疫情對經濟活動帶來重大衝擊,銀行業亦備受影響,但即使面對這次前所未有的「疫」境考驗,銀行仍不忘以人為本的精神,堅持履行「回報客戶、回報員工、回報股東、回報社會」的企業使命,尤其關注維護員工安全、健康及福祉,,與團隊共同「疫」流而上。 重視員工福祉  在疫境中更見真章 一向重視員工的創興銀行,在這次漫長的疫情中,仍將員工福祉放在首位,實踐「回報員工」的企業使命,與團隊一起迎難而上。 回顧2020年新冠疫情爆發初期,為保障員工安全及健康,銀行第一時間向各部門同事派發搓手液、口罩等防疫用品,並採取分隊辦公及在家工作的彈性上班模式,以盡量減少員工感染病毒的風險,讓團隊能在安全情況下,各司其職。 對創興來說,員工就是企業的寶貴資產,因此不論任何時候,對員工也珍而重之。 為保障這些重要「資產」,銀行對每位員工也用心關懷,在疫情高峰期,同事或其家人一旦染疫,人力資源業務夥伴會即時致電慰問,同時指導他們如何應對,並且即時追蹤在工作時的緊密接觸者,以確保員工安全。 員工在隔離及接受治療期間,人力資源業務夥伴每隔一段時間,便會透過電話跟進情況,作出適當支援,每一細節也反映出「重視團隊」、「關懷員工」絕非一些象徵式口號,而是切實付諸行動的企業要旨。 ▲「關懷員工」從不是創興的象徵式口號,在疫情高峰期,同事或其家人一旦染疫,人力資源業務夥伴會即時致電慰問,並指導他們如何應對。 ▪...
【特約內容】提起可持續發展,部分人腦海只會想起環保。但作為香港主要地產發展商之一,可持續發展就遠不止於此,當中還涉及經濟和社會等範疇。隨著社會上關心環境議題及有可持續發展意識的人越來越多,我們相信成為真正的可持續發展企業,才能捉緊未來的大趨勢! 推動綠色生活  支持多元共融 信和集團的願景是「建構更美好生活」,透過「綠色生活」、「創新構思」及「心繫社區」三項關鍵元素,制定可持續發展策略的框架,建構宜居、宜作、宜樂的社區,為持份者創造共享價值。集團把可持續發展融入業務各個層面 ,除了透過節能設計、綠色建築發展及採購,以減少廢物及碳排放外,更善用創新科技,在旗下物業推動綠色生活。為了於2050年前實現淨零碳排放,集團旗下上市公司信和置業於早前發表《減碳藍圖》,制定清晰的淨零碳路線圖及減碳目標 。而76%集團發展中的地產項目已獲綠建環評預認證,2021年推出的旗艦項目「凱滙」更榮獲2021年度環保建築大獎。 集團致力推動企業可持續發展企業文化,讓每一位員工都可以在自己的工作崗位上推展可持續發展。在管理層面上,自2022年起,集團更將可持續發展量化,將它納入員工年度工作表現評核的準則之一。 集團相信多元共融對公司長期可持續發展十分重要,因此簽署平等機會委員會發起的《種族多元共融僱主約章》,致力建設種族多元共融的工作間文化,並促進少數族裔享有平等就業機會,達致社會多元共融。集團亦推行「多元與共融行動月」,舉辦一系列活動,包括講座、互動遊戲及員工分享等。 ▲2021年推出的旗艦項目「凱滙」榮獲2021年度環保建築大獎。 ▪...
疫情之下許多人失業,適逢近年環保署「綠在區區」回收站陸續開張,不時都見到招聘,但做回收……又污糟又悶——或者會有人這樣想。其實回收都可以企企理理,有時還會碰上街坊帶來的有趣物品,或對話——在回收站不止是執頭執尾,還有機會搞活動、做教育。做回收,也不一定只有環團可以做、應該做。 少不了的勞動:變得大隻 位於將軍澳寶琳的綠在西貢,偌大的半室外空間有一排整潔的回收車,還有換物塔、漂書閣,這是由NGO基督教家庭服務中心營運的其中一個回收站,其餘還有綠在寨城、綠在沙田等。Edith先後在綠在沙田和寨城工作,本身讀環保,初初因未想到該做保育、回收還是污染等,見綠在沙田請兼職項目助理,就去試試。 初初入職,要學回收物分類,「都不太難,見得多就懂得分。」反而是有時會遇上讓人哭笑不得的「回收物」,例如塞了在玻璃瓶頸取不出的不可回收非充電池,「有次又在一袋膠中執到隻尖叫雞公仔。」她笑着說。「那應該是橡膠,回收不到。」幸好可以留待換物活動時送出。只是說到要幫忙出貨上車就不是說笑,動軏要搬一袋袋重10公斤的廢紙,舖內回收物也經常爆滿,「我也變得大隻了。」她笑笑。 充電式電池其實可以回收,還有一些光面紙都是。而不能回收但仍可用的,會在綠在區區的換物活動上出售,讓人不用多買,減少浪費。 ▪ 垃圾回收變事業?90後廣告男辭職做上門回收 靠一種特質解困! ▪ 【回收新人類】到街市收發泡膠、如蝸牛拉貨:最難是撕膠紙……...
