  • Use a business format and easy to read font. Proofread your cover letter a few times to ensure that it does not have any errors. Find out the name of the recipient and use personalized salutation instead of using “to whom it may concern”. Use generic salutation such as “Dear Sir/Madam” or “Dear Hiring Manager” etc. if you are unable to find the name of the contact person.

近年做工程嗰啲文件真係一日比一日多。聽講幾十年前嘅地盤,係由頭到尾都唔多文件,但而家閒閒哋一支樓仔都可以出幾千份文件。基本上,將啲文件攤開佢嘅話,面積好可能會大過總樓面面積。 主要建築文件的分類 首先,所有建築都先要有探土丶周邊環境/限制的文件、比設計師們做佢哋嘅設計圖、做各種計算(GFA力學風量排水量等等),以及其他對政府同埋發展商嘅文件。之後就到工料測量師們計返嗰樣嘢嘅工程量用嚟做合約。然後到承建商同埋分判入場,開始要入返啲進度計劃、施工方案、材料報批、風險評估、施工深化圖等等一系列嘅文件。再之後就係一系列嘅業主、設計、承建、分判相互間嘅信來信住,包括你話我慢、我又話你阻住我、我又話你增加咗嘢要加錢、你又話我整爛你啲嘢要扣錢等等,同埋仲有好多測試文件、做完嘅驗收文件。 文件的用處 呢個世界上,每樣嘢存在都有佢嘅意義。雖然好多地盤人覺得好多文件都好廢,但係佢哋(文件)都有佢嘅用處。由初期嘅建築大綱,到慢慢細化每樣嘢,先令到呢個建築物從大方向去到每一個細位都能夠合理地興建出嚟。 ▪ 地盤佬日誌—地盤最重視嘅節日 ▪ 地盤佬日誌—好判頭&好騙頭 冇實際作用的文件...
打工仔常說:「在辦公室裏做人比工作更難啊!」若不幸遇到職場欺凌,大部分打工仔也會選擇啞忍或辭職。香港教育專業人員協會在今年2月以電郵向超過一千名教師進行調查,發現過半受訪者在過去六個月內,也在學校遭遇過一次或以上的職場欺凌,例如言語的攻擊、冷嘲熱諷、在背後中傷、上司不停打壓,甚至給過量不合理的工作等等。 這些只是冰山一角,欺凌問題充斥在各行各業。作為打工仔的你該如何應對呢?直接與欺凌者對話,背後的說三道四者,就最怕光明正大的擺上枱面?記錄所有「罪證」,若將來要向公司投訴或訴諸法庭時,這些證據也會成為呈堂証供?與人傾訴和嘗試磨合後也解決不了,那就訴諸投訴機制:工會、勞工、勞工組織和法律援助,都是你的武器?千萬別採取極端招數報復,也不要怪責和否定自己?以下為你詳細解說面對職場欺凌的Dos & Don’ts! 遇到職場欺凌你要做的事 1. 直接與欺凌者對話 愈早發聲,就可避免自己成為「長期攻擊」的對象,這是最關鍵亦最難行的一步,但只要有勇氣踏出這一步,就好大機會可解決問題。要知道如果你愈是忍氣吞聲,欺凌者就會變本加厲。所以當你注意到你受到欺凌時,在情況許可下,可作出即時回應。 例如同事經常要你去幫忙做自己工作範圍以外的事,你可禮貌地說:「不」。幫得一次,他就會繼續找你麻煩;若果你的拒絕令到他說更多難聽的說話,甚至作出人身攻擊,你就要直接說出你的感受,例如:「我無法幫你處理你的工作,但亦請你停止你帶有侮辱性的說話。」很多時候欺凌者會以「開玩笑」作為藉口,或者笑你「唔玩得」,此時你亦可以直接說出你真實的感受:「對啊,我不認為可以這樣開玩笑,希望你能尊重我。」說話時亦要注意自己的姿體語言,挺起胸膛抬起頭地顯露自己的自信。 很多時候欺凌者就是看準被欺凌者的懦弱,透過打敗別人來獲取成功感。若你能自信地回應他的冷嘲熱諷,一來他不會預計到你「原來」懂得反抗,能殺他一個措手不及。二來,每次你也正面反擊,他不能獲得成功感,漸漸便會失去攻擊你的興趣。...
