2022年MBA英文面试攻略:五招教你在英语面试中如履平地

又是一年笔试成绩揭晓时,无论笔试成绩是否如愿,同学们可以暂且等待分数线公布,但等待的过程并不妨碍我们为即将到来的面试做准备。下面Joy老师帮大家梳理了英语面试过程中能让你独树一帜的小技巧,以及一些常见问题的回答方法,希望能给不管是22考研需要复试的同学,还是23考研需要提前面试的同学,一些启发和灵感。

01 标签化的自我介绍

大家可以想象一下,当面试老师一天要完成与几十个候选人的初次见面与评价时,因为每个人都在“使用”相似的自我介绍模板,我们好像很难摆脱“My name is XXX and I’m from YYY”的平庸开头,而乏味的开端就注定了我们需要在面试的后半段做出更多努力来抓住面试老师的注意力,所以教大家一个小Tip:我们在介绍姓甚名谁之前给自己贴一个标签,并且尝试制造冲突感吸引听者注意。比如“具有艺术家思维的产品经理”,再如“擅长与数据打交道的文科生”。

示例

“ Well, I’d like to describe myself as a language learner who is skilled in data processing. …… (我认为自己是一个擅长数据处理的语言学习者。)“

Well,I’d like to say I’m I am a product manager with artistic thinking.……(我是一个具备艺术思维的产品经理。)

Could you please have a brief introduction of yourself?

Well, I’d like to describe myself as a language learner who is skilled in data processing. I’m Josie, I graduated from XXX university with the major of English. What I received in college is not only my excellent professional achievements, but also the curiosity and creativity that inspired me not to limit myself in one certain field. That was the reason why I did various internships in my college and eventually found my interest in IT industry. Now I work as a marketing Manager in an entrepreneurial Internet company, which inspired me to learn more management knowledge and theories to optimize my work.That’s why I chose to apply for this program. That’s all my introduction, thanks for your attention.

【我认为自己是一个擅长数据处理的语言学习者。我是乔西,我毕业于XXX大学,主修英语。我在大学里收获的不仅有我出色的专业成绩,还有我的好奇心和创造力,这激励我不要把自己限制在一个特定的领域。这就是我在大学做过各种实习,最终对IT行业感兴趣的原因。现在,我在一家创业型互联网公司担任市场营销经理,这启发了我需要去学习更多的管理知识和理论,以优化我的工作。这就是我选择申请这个项目的原因。以上是我的个人介绍,谢谢你们的关注。】

02 分时段多维度的自我规划

不管是应届考生,还是有着多年工作经验的“老江湖”,在面试时,老师都会关注你今后的职业规划,一方面考查考生自身想法是否清晰,一方面衡量考生与此项目人才培养方向的匹配度。所以,建议同学们在回答这个问题的时候不要一两句话泛泛而谈,我们可以从未来需要就职的平台,某个阶段具体想要达成的职位,主攻的业务,以及管理的体量等等角度来阐述这个问题。

示例

Could you please tell us

some of your future career plan?

Well, I’ve set a relatively specific plan for my career development. During my graduate time, I’d like to take part in the projects and internships related to my major as much as I can so that I can strengthen my practical ability. In the next three years after graduation, I’d like to take root in the consulting industry, starting as a consultant, to be a project manager and to manage my own team. In the next five years after graduation, I'll probably change my position from Party B to Party A to independently manage the implementation of the project.

【我已经为我的职业发展制定了一个相对具体的计划。在我的研究生学习期间,我想尽可能多地参加与我的专业相关的项目和实习,以增强我的实践能力。在毕业后的三年里,我想在咨询行业扎根,从一名顾问开始,成为一名项目经理,并管理我自己的团队。在毕业后的5年里,我可能会从乙方转到甲方,独立管理项目的实施。】

03 回答问题逻辑化

一般当我们在回答老师问题的时候,可以将自己的回答设定在一个框架中,并从不同角度分析和阐述问题,这样面试老师会认为表达者思路清晰,并且具有应对现场压力的良好心理素质。

示例

Why do you want to

apply for this program?

Speaking of this question, I’d like to express my thoughts in two aspects.

First of all, I applied for this program because I feel the need to have further education in both management and professional knowledge. With my position being promoted to be the leader of my team, I believe what I can learn in this program will be helpful for my future work. Besides, I know my future classmates and mentors will come from different industries, which will inspire me with broader vision.

【说到这个问题,我想从两个方面来表达我的想法。

首先,我申请这个项目是因为我觉得有必要在管理知识和专业知识方面接受进一步的教育。我正被提升为我团队的领导者,我相信我在这个项目中能学到的将对我未来的工作有帮助。此外,我知道我未来的同学和导师将来自不同的行业,这将激励我具备更广阔的视野。】

04 数字是最直观的说服利器

在面试中,我们明白自己要去展现自己的优势,所以我们经常听到这样的表述:我的领导力很强;我学习能力很好;我的专业知识扎实。但其实对于面试官来说,这些表述都十分笼统,所以想要体现领导力,我们可以换种表达:

示例

After entering this start-up, I built a five-person product marketing team from scratch within a month, and put the team work on track rapidly. (在进入这家初创企业后,我从零开始在一个月内搭建了五个人的产品营销团队,并使团队工作很快步入正轨)

想要表达学习能力很好,我们可以换种表达:

After work, I passed the CFA exam in two years by self-study(在工作之余,我靠自学在两年间通过了CFA考试)

数字就像我们写议论文时有力的论据,直观并且突出,可以加深面试老师对我们的印象。

05 真诚是不二法器

对学商科的同学来说,曾经校招的时候排排坐的小组面试相信大家都还记忆犹新,我们在这样的场合下,非常直观地感受到了压力,而在我们的个人面试中,压力面试也普遍存在,面试老师可能会用一种“质疑”的语气提出一些不太容易回答的问题。比如:Has anyone ever told you that you have some disadvantages?

这是一道典型的压力面试题,大家都知道面试场合下不能说出不利于自己形象的表述,所以我们中的很多同学选择说一些自己有强迫症,完美主义等等不痛不痒的说辞,面试老师也明白我们的套路,这个问题我们的表现就有了一些隔靴搔痒之意,所以在这里给大家一个新的思路:我们可以告诉老师过去曾经存在过的问题,并突出目前已经有所改变的现状,这样,我们既没有逃避问题,也给了老师我们在持续进步的积极印象。

示例

Do you think

you’ve got some weakness?

As for my weakness, when I took over the management position for the first time, I tended to arrange every specific task for each of my member instead of communicating with them as much as possible in the working process. Later I found  the importance of timely communication and adjusted my management strategies. The specific problems were solved successfully before they became the tough ones. And I improved my communication skills. Now things have got much better.

【至于我的弱点,当我第一次担任管理职位时,我倾向于为我的每个成员安排每一个具体的任务,而不是在工作过程中尽可能多地与他们沟通。后来,我发现了及时沟通的重要性,并调整了我的管理策略。这些具体的问题在成为棘手的问题之前就被成功地解决了。我也提高了我的沟通能力。现在情况好多了。】
