Ⅲ.课文篇

The single most important use of body language (speaking without words) in the interview is the handshake. In the West, it is customary to state your name as you shake the hand of the interviewer. How and how long you shake hands is very important as this polite touching of the hands is very important in the first impression. As you know, many people are judged by first impressions, so be sure to make a good one that shows you are hard working and professional. To do this you must pick a handshake that is also professional.

面试中最重要的单一身体语言(不用言语表达)是握手。在西方,习惯的做法是在与面试者握手时告诉对方你的姓名。如何握手以及握手的时间长短是非常重要的,因为这种手与手之间的礼貌接触在给对方留下**印象时是很重要的。正如你所知道的,许多人通过**印象来判断一个人,因此,确保握手要得体,以说明你工作努力,富有专业精神。要做到这一点你必须挑选一种职业性的握手方式。

1. THE DEAD FISH HANDSHAKE: a very, very, very soft touch of the interviewer's hand. The DEAD FISH handshake shows fear and lack of confidence. This is NOT professional. In addition, it shows you are weak and not assertive. You must present yourself as an able worker who works well with others, so do NOT use the FISH handshake

死鱼式握手:非常非常非常柔软地与面试者的手接触。死鱼式握手流露出害怕与缺乏自信,这不专业。此外,它还说明你软弱不果断。你必须展示出你是一个能很好地和其他人一起工作的人,因此,不要使用死鱼式握手。

2. THE ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER HANDSHAKE: a hard, hard squeeze of the interviewer's hand. The ARNOLD handshake shows that you are trying too hard to get the job. This is NOT professional. It also shows fear and is extremely unfriendly. It may even make the interviewer afraid or uncomfortable, in which case she/he will definitely say: "DON'T CALL US, WE'LL CALL YOU!" (this means they do NOT want you at their company).

阿诺德·施瓦辛格式握手:很紧很紧地捏住面试者的手。阿诺德式握手表露出你过分努力想得到该工作,这不专业。它还说明畏惧与极度不友好。它还可能使面试者感到害怕或者不舒服。在这种情况下他/她**会这么说,“不要给我们打电话,我们会打给你!”(这意味着他们不想要你)。

3. THE PULL AND JERK HANDSHAKE: a yanking, or pulling of the interviewer's entire arm, moving their entire body. This is NOT professional. The PULL AND JERK handshake is made for when you see an old friend after a long time apart. Although it shows you are friendly, it expresses that you can not handle yourself in a business manner. It has NO place in the interview.

拽拉式握手:拽拉或者猛拉过面试者的整个胳膊,将他们的这个身体移过来,这不专业。拽拉式握手是你在和一个长时间分离的老友见面时使用的。尽管它表示你很友好,却说明在商务礼仪中你不能把握自己。

4. THE TWO-HANDED HANDSHAKE: when you use two hands to grab the interviewer's one hand. This is NOT professional. It is true that it shows kindness and affection, but it gives the feeling that you are taking care of the interviewer like a mother takes care of a baby. In China, the TWO-HANDED handshake is a very common between family members and friends, but it has NO place in the interview.

双手式握手:当你用两只手抓住面试者的一只手时,这称为双手式握手,这不专业。它表达善意与友好,这是真的。但是它给人一种感觉,你象母亲照料婴儿一样照料面试者。在中国,这种双手式握手在家人与朋友之间是很常见的,不过在面试中不要使用。

5. THE FAR AWAY HANDSHAKE: where you extend your arm out as far as you can to grab the interview's hand before he/she lifts it. This is not professional. The FAR AWAY handshake expresses that you are too anxious and afraid. By extending your arm out, you keep the interview away, making him/her think you do not like or trust them. Trust is important in a professional business.

远距离握手:指的是在面试人还没有来得及抬起胳膊时,您就远远地把胳膊伸过去与对方握手。远距离握手显示了你心中的焦急和恐惧。这样远远地伸出胳膊会使得面试人不得不也远远地伸出胳膊,这样一来就离你有一段距离,从而使面试人认为你不喜欢或不信任他们。在职场和商业界,双方之间的信任是非常重要的事。

6. THE LONG HOLD AND PUMP HANDSHAKE: When you hold the interviewer's hand for a long time, occasionally pumping or quickly squeezing the palm. This is NOT professional. These actions show that you are overly nervous. Being too nervous at an interview is a sign that you are not able to do the job. NEVER use the LONG HOLD AND PUMP handshake.

长时间地握手并伴以上下摇晃对方的手:握着面试人的手有 一会儿,并不时地上下摇晃或轻轻挤压对方的手掌。这样的做法也是不职业化的行为。这样的行为显示你过度紧张。在面试时显得过于紧张是一种你无法胜任此项工作的表示。永远也不要采用这样的握手方式。

7. THE PROFESSIONAL HANDSHAKE: where you shake the interviewer's hand firmly as you look him/her in the eye, while also stating your name proudly. Even women should have a firm, but not TOO firm handshake. This shows that you are serious and professional about your occupation. Take the interviewer's hand when it is extended to you. Leave your arm in an L (90 degree angle). Shake twice, firmly, then let the hand drop away. The PROFESSIONAL handshake will create a business atmosphere of trust and equality. Your confidence will show that you are able and willing to do any job. This is the best way to make a good first impression.

职业化的握手:与面试人坚定地握手,并保持与对方的双眼进行正面接触,同时自豪地告诉面试人你的姓名。即使是女性也应与面试人进行坚定的握手,但要注意握手时不要过于强硬。恰到好处的握手表明你对自己的职业的严肃态度和敬业精神。当面试人把手伸向你的时候,你也应把手伸过去。让你的胳膊保持L形(90度角的状态)。握两次手,然后让双方的手自然松开。职业化的握手会为双方创造一种信任和平等的商业氛围。你的自信表明你能做而且愿意做任何工作。这是给对方留下好印象的最佳途径。
