【職場實用英語】5分鐘寫完Thank you letter (Part 1)

Published on Monday, 10 Jun 2019

只要有 sample,有 template,寫一封 Thank you letter(感謝信)只需要 5 分鐘,相比起睇 job ads、send CV、去見工所花嘅時間,呢 5 分鐘絕對值得。
 

Thank you letter 真係有用?

邀請得去得面試嘅 candidates,大家都都差唔多學歷同經驗,要突圍而出,除咗面試嘅表現,一封 Thank you letter 往往係成敗關鍵。

  • 最近有調查1顯示,高達五分一嘅招聘人員會自動 DQ 冇 send 嘅 candidates。
     
  • 根據另一份調查2,有八成 HR 經理認為你封 Thank you letter 嘅內容會左右佢哋嘅最終決定
     
  • 另一份報告3又指出,近六成求職者原來係唔會 send Thank you letter 嘅


換言之,send 咗就已經贏咗一大半。如果文筆流暢,內容到肉,自然令你贏在終點線啦。如果咁都不為所動,睇埋呢份研究4講咩:

  • 假設有兩個 candidates,其中一個要求人工高啲但係 send 咗 Thank you letter,另一個要求低啲但係冇 send,有超過六成招聘人員反而會請叫價高啲果個
     

結論:抵 send 囉。
 

時機

唔駛急,至緊要快,趁 interviewer 仲記得你,見完工番到公司 / 屋企就 send,最遲都要 24 小時內,除非星期五晏晝先見,見完都差唔多過咗 office hour,就可以留番星期一 send,避免要對方喺週末收到 business email. 萬一唔記得咗,過咗幾日甚至 1 個禮拜,唔緊要,照 send,正所謂遲到好過冇到。
 

事前準備

啲人咩都話要贏在起跑線, 原來寫 Thank you letter 真係有條起跑線, 起跑前你就要做好準備,面試果陣入到房,唔好騰, 留心聽住 interviewer 叫咩名,如果你覺得好難記,呢度教你一個方法:


Nice to meet you, [John].
 

即時重覆對方個名,簡單一句,打招呼之餘又可以幫助記憶。至於對方職位同部門最好都記埋,佢之後問嘅問題好大機會同佢本身職位有關,串連起嚟幫助記憶,都唔會太難。

無論你有幾 sure 你冇記錯,都應該上 LinkedIn 睇下,人名好多時會有同音唔同字嘅情況,所以要確認清楚。而且當你睇過對方嘅 profile,對方會知道有人睇過,可能會見到係你,變相增加你嘅曝光率,加深對你嘅印象,所以事前應該要整理下自己個 profile,執靚仔啲,善用你呢張 online CV。

如果對方俾卡片你咁就梗係最好啦,冇都唔緊要,可以 send 俾約你面試嘅 HR 同事,請佢幫你轉寄:

例句:

Thank you for arranging for the interview.

首先多謝人哋幫你安排個 interview。
 

I appreciate the opportunity to learn more about this position and enjoyed speaking with [John].

表達 interview 合符預期,有所得着,順勢提及 interviewer。
 

呢個例子假設你回覆 HR 同事約你 interview 個 email,所以用 “this position” 就可以,如果係另開一個新 email 嘅話就最好寫清楚係咩職位。
 

Would you mind forwarding the following message to [him/her]? Thank you.

表明來意。留意 “mind” 後面要跟動詞 -ing form。

如果有幾個人見你,就要每個人一封 Thank you letter,內容封封都有啲唔同,唔可以一模一樣,因為佢哋多數會 share 嚟睇,知你 copy & paste 就冇誠意啦。
 

主要結構

英文商業書信同中文格式差別唔大,Thank you letter 一般要有以下五大元素:

1. 上款
2. 開場白,例如多謝給予面試機會
3. 重申面試中提及嘅重點
4. 再次表達你對份工嘅興趣
5. 祝頌語
6. 下款

 

實例點評

根據招聘人員分享嘅經驗,通常收到嘅係以下咁樣嘅 Thank you letter:


Subject line: Thank you letter

Dear [Sir/Madam],

I enjoyed meeting you and it was a pleasure to be interviewed.

As I’ve already stated in my CV and repeated during the interview, I’ve had great success in my current position. I’m sure I will be a good employee of your company. I’m absolutely excited to join your team!

Could you let me know as soon as you know anything about the further steps of the recruitment process. I can’t wait to meet you again and start working together!

Best,

Teresa Wong
