  Questions You Should Never Ask in a Job Interview:

10大英语面试技巧

  面试时你永远不要问的那些问题:

  1. Anything related to salary or benefits

  关于薪水和福利的任何事,都不要问

  “Company benefits [and salary negotiations] don’t come into play until an offer has been extended,” says Kohut. The same principle applies to sick time and vacation days. It’s best to avoid any question that sounds like you assume you already have the position–unless, of course, your interviewer brings it up first.

  “除非已正式雇佣,否则公司的薪水、福利以及关于薪水的谈判永远都不会展现给应聘者,”Kohut说道。同样,病假、假期等相关的问题也不能问。除非对方已经暗示你将得到这份工作,否则,不要提出任何以上提到的问题,这会让人觉得你已有胜券在握的感觉。

  2. Questions that start with “why?”

  不要提出任何以“为什么”开头的问题

  Why? It’s a matter of psychology. These kinds of questions put people on the defensive, says Kohut. She advises repositioning a question such as, “Why did the company lay off people last year?” to a less confrontational, “I read about the layoffs you had. What’s your opinion on how the company is positioned for the future?”

  为什么呢?因为这是个心理学问题。以“为什么”开头的问题会让人变得具有防御意识,Kohut解释道。她建议可以换个方式问问题,比如,把“为什么贵公司去年要裁员?”的问题巧妙转变成:“我听说去年贵公司裁员了一部分人,请问,您对于公司未来的定位有什么看法?”

  3. “Who is your competition?”

  “我的竞争者都有些谁?”

  This is a great example of a question that could either make you sound thoughtful … or totally backfire and reveal that you did zero research about the company prior to the interview, says Jacqui Barrett-Poindexter of CareerTrend.net. Before asking any question, determine whether it’s something you could have figured out yourself through a Google search. If it is, a) don’t ask it and b) do that Google search before your interview!

  这个问题是把双刃剑,它也许会让你显得考虑周全…也可能带来出其不意的反效果,让用人单位觉得你根本没有事先做好对公司的研究、也丝毫不重视这次面试——来自CareerTrend网站的Jacqui Barrett-Poindexter说道。在问出任何一个问题前,请先自问:这个问题我能不能自己用google找到答案?如果能,那么,请1)千万别问这个问题2)面试前先用google搜一搜!

  4. “How often do reviews occur?”

  “公司多久对员工进行一次评估?”

  Maybe you’re concerned about the company’s view of your performance, or maybe you’re just curious, but nix any questions about the company’s review or self-appraisal policies. “It makes us think you’re concerned with how often negative feedback might be delivered,” says Kohut. Keep your confidence intact, and avoid the topic altogether–or at least until you receive an offer.

  也许你比较在乎公司对你工作表现的看法,也许你只是好奇想问这个罢了。无论如何,请拒绝任何关于员工评估或自我评价政策的问题。“这个问题会让我们觉得,你很在乎关于自己的消极反馈多久会向上汇报一次”,Kohut说道。保持自信吧,避免这些问题——等你已经得到了这份工作再问也不迟。

  5. “May I arrive early or leave late as long as I get my hours in?”

  “在保证工作时间的前提下,我可以迟到或早退吗?”

  Even if you make it clear that you’re hoping for a flexible schedule to accommodate a legitimate concern such as picking up your kids from daycare, Barrett-Poindexter advises against this question. “While work-life balance is a very popular concern right now, it’s not the most pressing consideration for a hiring decision-maker,” she says. “Insinuating early on that you’re concerned about balancing your life may indicate to your employer that you are more concerned about your needs and less concerned about the company' s.”

  即使你已经表明你的初衷只是想知道能不能弹性工作,以满足那些合理的要求-比如去日托所接小孩-但Barrett-Poindexter建议别问这个问题。“诚然,生活和工作间的平衡是当今很流行的主题,但是对于招聘人员来讲却并不是,”她说道,“过早暗示你对工作和生活之间的平衡,可能会给你的雇主一种”此人较注重个人利益,而非公司利益”的印象。”6. “Can I work from home?”

  6. “Can I work from home?”

  “我能在家工作吗?”

  Unless it was implied in the initial job description, don’t bring it up. “Some companies will allow you to work from home on occasion once they see what a productive employee you are,” says Kohut. But an interview isn’t the time to be asking for special favors. Right now your top priority is selling them on you first。
