Hello everyone, and welcome back to English with Lucy.

Weve spoken about writing a wonderful CV, but alongside that you will most likely need a cover letter.

大家好,欢迎回到《跟着Lucy学英语》。

我们已经讲了如何写一份优秀的简历,但是你们很可能还需要一份求职信。

Some people consider a cover letter to be pointless, but I think its an extra opportunity to persuade a recruiter to give you a telephone interview.

Some recruiters may receive hundreds of applications a day.

有些人认为求职信没有意义,但是我认为这是一个说服招聘者给你一个电话面试的额外机会。

有些招聘者可能会每天收到几百份申请。

So your cover letter gives you a chance to stand out from the crowd.

In this lesson, Im going to tell you everything you need to know about writing the perfect cover letter.

所以你的求职信会让你有机会鹤立鸡群。

在本节课中,我将向你们讲解关于写出完美的求职信你们所需要知道的一切。

Lets get started with the lesson.

Now a cover letter should be an A4 piece of paper or a document.

我们开始上课吧。求职信应该写在一张A4纸或文件上。

To start, you will need to include your name, your contact details, the date, and the recruiters contact details as well.

Even if you are emailing a cover letter, it needs to be written as a formal business letter.

首先你需要写上你的姓名、联系方式、日期以及招聘者的联系方式。

即使你要用电子邮件发送求职信,也要用正式的商务信件格式。

Always send it as a PDF file, as you dont know whether the recruiter will be using Windows or Mac, and a PDF will open on both and the formatting will stay the same.

It should be no longer than one A4 page.

始终以PDF文件发送,因为你不知道招聘者用的是Windows系统还是Mac系统,而PDF文件能够在两个系统中打开并且格式不会变。

求职信不能超过一张A4纸的篇幅。

And I advise a maximum of four paragraphs. Start with your name, address, and contact details in the top right hand corner.

我建议最多写四个自然段。现在右上方写上你的姓名、地址和联系方式。

Make sure your details are sensible. Email addresses like crazybabe393@zmail. com wont make you look very professional.

确保你的信息合理。像crazybabe393@zmail. com这样的邮箱地址会让你看起来不那么专业。

Underneath on the left, you should write the company address and the date.

Now lets talk about appropriate greetings for your cover letter.

在左下角你应该写上公司的地址和日期。

现在我们来谈谈求职信上得体的问候吧。

When youre doing your initial research, try to find the name of the hiring manager or whoever will be reading your letter.

This way, you can make your letter a lot more personal and it will prove that youre a determined candidate who wants this job specifically.

当你在做最初的研究时,努力找到招聘经理的姓名或任何会读到你信件的人的姓名。

这样你可以让你的信感觉更个人化一些,而且这能够证明你是一个非常想要这份工作的坚定的求职者。

If you arent sure of gender, just write their full name.

Make sure you check your spelling, because misspelling their name will cause them to disregard your application 99% of the time.

如果你不确定性别,那么就写他们的全名。务必检查拼写,因为把他们的名字拼错99%会让他们忽视你的申请。

If you cant find their name or if you arent sure about their name, you should instead start with, "Dear Sir or Madam," or, "Dear Hiring Manager," or, "Dear Recruiting Manager," or even, "Dear Human Resources Professional".

Just avoid, "To Whom It May Concern," as its a little outdated.

如果你找不到他们的名字,或者不确定他们的名字,你应该以“亲爱的先生或女士”或“亲爱的招聘经理”或“亲爱的招募经理”或者甚至是“亲爱的人力资源专业人士”开头。

请避免使用“致相关人士”,因为这有点过时。

Now lets talk about the first paragraph. The first paragraph needs to include why youre writing the letter and the position that youre applying for.

现在我们来谈谈第一段吧。第一段应该包括你为什么要写这封信以及你要申请的职位。

You should also mention where you found the position and the fact that your CV is attached.

At the end, you can add a little extra about yourself that you couldnt share in your CV.

你还应该提及你是在哪里找到这份职位的,以及你的简历已附在后面。

最后你可以添加一些你不能在简历中分享的关于你的信息。

For example, I am writing to apply for the role of account manager, in response to the advert posted on the Seed Jobs platform.

Please find my CV attached alongside this cover letter.

例如,我写信是为了申请会计经理的职位,我看到了发布在Seed Jobs平台上的招聘广告。

随信附上我的简历。

Having worked in the agricultural industry for five years, Im very excited about the prospect of working with a company that has such a strong focus on sustainable food.

Lets discuss the second paragraph.

在农业行业工作了五年,我对有机会能在一个如此关注可持续食品的公司工作感到十分兴奋。我们来讨论第二段吧。

Now that youve introduced yourself and established your enthusiasm, in the second paragraph, you can discuss your most relevant experience and talk about the specific qualifications and skills that make you the perfect candidate.

In this paragraph, you need to sell yourself, something we talk about in another lesson.

既然你已经介绍了你自己并且表达了你的热情,那么在第二段中你可以谈论你最相关的经验并且谈论让你成为完美候选人的特定资质和技能。

在这一段你需要推销你自己,我们会在另一节课里讨论。

Make sure youre not just repeating what youve put in your CV.

You want to add something extra while still emphasising your skills and experience.

请不要重复你在简历里已经说过的内容。

你需要添加额外的信息,同时还是要强调你的技能和经验。

Lets talk about your third paragraph.

The main goal of your closing paragraph is to thank the employer for their time and consideration.

我们来谈谈第三段吧。结尾段的主要目的是要感谢雇主花时间考虑你的申请。

You can also use this paragraph to justify any major gaps in your employment history, sum up your qualifications, and express an interest in continuing to the next stage in the hiring process.

You could also show your availability for a callback and an interview.

你还可以用这一段来为你的工作履历中的任何重要空窗期做出解释,简要介绍你的资质并且表达对进入招聘流程下一阶段的兴趣。你还可以表现出你能够随时接受回调和面试。

Before you sign off, you should try to promise more information. For example, I would love to show you my award winning design portfolio, or I would like the opportunity to show you how I increased the productivity by 23%.

在你写结束语之前,你应该努力承诺更多的信息。

比如,我想要向你们展示我的获奖设计作品集,或者我想要有机会向你们展示我是如何把生产效率增加了23%。

Just be prepared to fulfil any promises in the interview. Now, lets talk about an appropriate sign-off.

请准备在面试中履行任何承诺。现在我们来说说一个得体的结束语。

You should end your message with a formal closing such as Sincerely, Regards, or Best regards. If your closing contains more than one word, capitalise only the first word, as in Best regards or Yours sincerely.

你应该用一个正式的结尾来结束你的信,比如诚挚地,敬礼或此致敬礼。如果你的结束语不止一个词,那么只需要将第一个词的首字母大写,比如Best regards或Yours sincerely。

Be sure to put a comma after your closing.

On the next line, you need to write your full name and then you need to write your telephone number and your email address on separate lines after your name.

务必在你的结束语后面加上一个逗号。

在下一行你需要写上你的全名,然后你要写上你的电话号码,并且在你名字后另起一行写上你的电子邮箱地址。

Although you will have already put your contact information at the top, its important to remind them. Including it again makes life easier for the recruiter.

尽管到时候你已经在顶部写上了你的联系方式,提醒他们还是很重要的。再说一次能够让招聘者的生活变得更轻松。

Now, were going to be looking at cover letter grammar.

My first grammar tip is to avoid contractions where necessary.

现在我们要讨论求职信的语法。我的第一个语法建议是必要时避免使用缩略形式。

Im or I am, dont or do not, Id or I would. So how do you know if its okay to use contractions in a cover letter or not?

Im 还是 I am,dont 还是 do not,Id 还是 I would.所以你要怎么知道能不能在求职信中使用缩略形式呢?

Well, it depends on whos likely to read it and the job that youre applying for.

You want to demonstrate that youre a good fit, and a good way of doing that is to match the communication style of the employer in your cover letter.

嗯,这取决于谁会看这封信,以及你申请的工作。

你需要阐释你很适合这份工作,而这样做的一个很好的方式就是在你的求职信中将你的通讯风格跟你的雇主统一。

You should always use full sentences. Bullet points are for the CV.

你需要始终使用完整的句子。着重符号是在简历中使用的。

Full sentences are for the cover letter.

You should avoid the passive voice and use the active voice most of the time.

完整的句子是在求职信中使用的。

你应该避免使用被动语态,并且大部分时候使用主动语态。

An example of the passive voice is, "A promotion to supervisor was awarded to me after only one year."

The active voice: "After only one month, I earned a promotion to manager."

被动语态的例子是,“仅一年后我被晋升为主管”。

主动语态:“仅一个月后,我晋升为经理。”

The passive voice: "Loyalty was recognised as one of my strengths." The active voice: "I am very loyal."

被动语态:“忠诚被认为是我的优点之一。”主动语态:“我很忠诚。”

Now lets discuss the vocabulary that you should and should not use in your cover letter.

Firstly, dont use any slang.

现在我们来讨论你应该和不应该在求职信中使用的词汇。

首先,不要使用俚语。

This is a formal business letter. You should also try to use key words from the job advert.

这是一封正式的商务信件。你还应该努力使用招聘广告中的关键词。

Additionally, you should use powerful verbs and adjectives.

Im going to give you a list of weak verbs and the powerful verbs you could use instead.

除此之外,你应该使用强有力的动词和形容词。

我要给你们一个弱动词以及用来替换它们的强有力动词的清单。

Number one, instead of get, you can use receive.

Number two, instead of give, you could use provide.

第一个,不要用get,你可以使用receive。

第二个,不要使用give,你可以使用provide。

Number three, instead of help, you could say assist.

Four, instead of answer, you could try reply.

第三个,不要使用help,你可以说assist。

第四个,不要使用answer,你可以试试reply。

Number five, instead of choose, you could say select.

Number six, instead of saying talk about, you could use discuss.

第五个,不要使用choose,你可以说select。第六个,不要说talk about,你可以使用discuss。

Number seven, instead of to make sure you could say ensure.

And number eight, instead of to tell you could use to inform.

第七个,不要使用make sure,你可以说ensure。

第八个,不要使用to tell you,你可以使用to inform。

Lastly, before you send off your cover letter, you need to check is everything attached?

Is your CV there as well?

最后一点,在发送求职信之前,你需要检查一下是不是所有的东西都附上了?

你的简历也在吗?

Is everything proofread? Are there any spelling mistakes or are there any grammar mistakes?

语言都纠错了吗?有没有拼写错误或语法错误呢?

Right, if you follow all of my tips, you should have a really clear and concise cover letter that should make you stand out amongst the crowd.

Okay, now its time for a quiz.

好的,如果你按照我所有的建议去做,那么你应该能写出一份非常清晰简洁的求职信了,它能够让你鹤立鸡群。
