你的工作找得怎么样了?

E: How's your job search going?
A: I only started looking for a job a few days ago.
E: have you finished compiling your resume?
A: yes, I was precise with every word in my resume?
E: that's good. Don't forget to design the format. An attractive fromat is as important as the content.
A: absolutely,I've highlighted all my strengths and the resume is clear and easy to read.
E: good. How about your cover letter?
A: a cover letter? I've never thought about that. Won't a CV do for my job application?
E: no, a CV is not enough. You should also attach it with a cover letter. Don't overlook it. You're faced with fierce competition in the job market. If your cover letter cannot stand out in the pile of cover letters, your resume may never see the light of day.
A: sounds reasonable.Even if I'm the right one for the job, many people are applying for the same vacancy at the same time, so I should try my best to catch the Human Resources manager's attention.
E: yes, you're right. All your preparation efforts are to help you land a job interview.
A: got it. I'll start right now.

你的工作找得怎么样了?
我几天前才开始找工作.
简历写好没?
写好了,里面的每一个词都是我精心挑选的.
很好.别忘了设计一下板式,吸引人的板式和内容一样重要.
没错,我强调了我所有的优点,简历清晰易读.
不错.求职信写得怎么样了?
求职信?我从来没有想过要写这个.找工作有份简历难道还不够吗?
不行,只有简历是不够的,你应该附上一封求职信,别大意了.现在就业市场竞争激烈,如果你的求职信不能从一堆求职信中脱颖而出,可能根本没人读你的简历.
恩.有道理.即使我是合适的人选,有那么多人都在同时申请这一个职位,我也得尽力吸引人事经理的注意力.
你说的对,你所做的所有准备都是帮你获得面试的机会.
明白了,我马上就写.
