    I believe that James will make a valuable addition to any organization that he may join. We deeply regret his decision to move on and I recommend him without hesitation.

    I would gladly answer any request for further information.

    Dear Ms Montague,

    As you are probably aware, the recent smoking ban has had a profound impact on our business. Our sales have dropped 40 percent in the last six months. Though we do not expect this to be a long-term concern for our business, we don't expect sales to return to normal until the summer when our patio opens for the tourist season.

    Due to the loss in business we regret to inform you that we are laying-off all of our hosts and hostesses for the winter and spring. With business being so slow our servers can handle the task of greeting and seating customers on their own.

    You are entitled to two week's severence pay, which will be paid in full on your next paycheck. Please come in for any scheduled shifts next week.

    Thank you for your hard work and dedication at Pino's Pizzaria. Please apply again for our next summer season.

    Dear Ms. Hathoway:

    Forthcoming Price Change

    Season tickets for this year's symphony are going on sale next month and we wanted you to be among the first to know.

    As you probably know, rental prices have skyrocketed throughout Tennessee this year. Due to our increase in rent at the Arrington Forum, we are finding it necessary to raise the price of our season tickets from $228 to $275. Single viewing tickets will also be subject to a price increase.

    We hope that you will consider purchasing season tickets for next year despite this change. The Arrington Symphony has been together for 23 years, and relies on season-ticket holders to fill 25% of the seating at each event. Without your support the Arrington Symphony could be forced into retirement before its 25th anniversary.

    To purchase tickets for the 20-- season, please visit our website at www.arringtonsymphony.net, or call the ticket agent representative at (615) 395-8750.

    We look forward to having you in our audience again next year.

    Yours truly,

    I just read an article in the News and Observer about Taylor's new computer center just north of Durham. I would like to apply for a position as an entry-level programmer at the center.

    I understand that Taylor produces both in-house and customer documentation. My technical writing skills, as described in the enclosed resume, are well suited to your company. I am a recent graduate of DeVry Institute of Technology in Atlanta with an Associate's Degree in Computer Science. In addition to having taken a broad range of courses, I served as a computer consultant at the college's computer center where I helped train users to work with new systems.

    I am seeking a position in your engineering department where I may use my training in computer sciences to solve Taylor's engineering problems. I would like to be a part of the department that developed the Internet Selection System but am unsure whether you have a current opening.

    I expect to receive a Bachelor of Science degree in Engineering from North Carolina State University in June and by that time will have completed the Computer Systems Engineering Program. Since September 2000, I have been participating, through the University, in the Professional Training Program at Computer Systems International in Raleigh. In the program I was assigned to several staff sections as an apprentice. Most recently, I have been a programmer trainee in the Engineering Department and have gained a great deal of experience in computer applications. Details of the academic courses I have taken are included in the enclosed resume.

    If there is a position open at Taylor Inc., please let me know whom I should contact for further information. I look forward to hearing from you soon. I may be reached at my office (919-866-4000 ext. 232) or via email (Brock@aol.com).

  15. Cover letters
    As mentioned previously, application letters and cover letters are not the same. A cover letter identifies an item being sent, the person to whom it is being sent, and the reason for its being sent. A cover letter provides a permanent record of the transmittal for both the writer and the reader.

    In a cover letter, keep your remarks brief. Your opening should explain what you are sending and why. In an optional second paragraph, you might include a summary of the information you are sending. A letter accompanying a proposal, for example, might point out sections in the proposal that might be of particular interest to the reader. The letter could then go on to present a key point or two explaining why the writer's firm is the best one for the job. The closing paragraph should contain acknowledgements, offer additional assistance, or express the hope that the material will fulfill its purpose.

    The following are examples of cover letters. The first letter (Sample #1) is brief and to the point. The second letter (Sample #2) is slightly more detailed because it touches on the manner in which the information was gathered.

This project also considers the effect of swirl on homogeneous combustion. In this work we have made two-component velocity measurements using laser doppler velocimetry. I have enjoyed the experimental work in the Engine Research Center very much, and if I were interested in automobile engines, I would continue my work there after my baccalaureate degree. The truth of the matter, though, is that I am much more interested in airplane engines, particularly the new generation of gas turbine engines used on fighter jets.

    Are you inundated with job application requests? Well, I'm sorry to say that this letter is yet another for your pile, but here it goes: I am a forthcoming graduate in mechanical engineering and am interested in the design position that you have advertised for your company. Academically, I stand well within the top half of my class. A failure to be glib on exams prevented me from qualifying for Tau Beta Pi. However, this failure has not prevented me from succeeding in any other endeavor.

  26. Letter of Dismissal
    18 April 2004

    Business letters, in general, are difficult to write as they usually contain important message and can be used as legal document. Letter of Dismissal, in particular, is very difficult to write as you must be specific and firm. Before we go into the structure of the letter, let us have a look at the example below:

    Dear Mr. Thompson,


    After a careful investigation, I have concluded that you have violated the company's policy by granting loans to individuals known to you and your family without evaluating their assets. This misconduct is made more serious when the situation persists after two written warning to you and to your supervisor.


    In light of these facts, you are being dismissed from your position from ABC Bank, effective immediately.


    If you have any questions or need clarification, please contact me. Please be advised that your salary to date will be paid into your account at the end of the month. You have the right to request a review of this action by filing an appeal. A copy of the procedures for appeal is attached.

    Yours truly,

  27. Leaving Note
    27 April 2004

    We have been on the topic of resignation. This week we will look at a leaving note, from the person leaving the company for whatever reason. Before leaving a company, you should writer a memo to announce your leave and to express your appreciation to your colleagues.
    Here is an example of a retirement letter.



    Dear all,
    As you know, I have been assigned a new task of a retiree and will take up my position at the end of this month.

    Over the last 30 years with ABC, I had a great opportunity to meet many great colleagues, some of whom have become mentors and personal friends. ABC is more than a home to me; it is my family. I have watched it grow and prosper. It is very sad for me to leave.

    I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for your excellent work done and fine contributions to the company.

    Best regards,

  28. Letter of Recommendation

    A letter of recommendation is not difficult to write if you are confident in the person for whom you are writing. The letter should write itself. However, if you feel uncomfortable to recommend someone or feel that you are not in the position to provide a good reference, you should turn it down. Please refer to last week's examples.
    Essential information on a letter of recommendation includes the nature of your relationship with the candidate (how did you know him/her, how long have you known him/her), followed by the qualities appreciated. You should stress your confidence in recommending the candidate at the end of the letter.
    Here is an example of recommendation letter, written by a professor on behalf of a student.

    Dear Sir/ Madam,

    I am writing this reference at the request of Miss Sarah Walker, who is applying for a place in your PhD's program in Applied Linguistics.

    I have known Miss Walker for two years in my capacity as her academic supervisor at University of Washington. Miss Walker also took courses in Conversational Analysis and Sociolinguistics from me and earned grades A in both classes. Based on her grades, well-written term papers, good attendance and class participation, I'd rate Miss Walker academic performance in my class as excellent.

    Miss Walker is interested in feminism and cognitive linguistics and appears to possess the intellectual curiosity and aptitude to be very successful in this area. She is goal-orientated and has demonstrated a great sense of priorities. She has a positive attitude towards education and was a gem in my classes.

    I highly recommend Miss Sarah Walker to your PhD program. I am confident that she will be a positive addition to your school.

    Truly yours,

  29. Authorization Letter

    Authorization letter is mainly for legal purposes. For instance, when you cannot collect some important document by yourself and send a representative, you need to issue your representative with an authorization letter. All it says is that the person can act on your behalf, whatever the business is.

    Imagine you are applying for a visa and using a visa and passport agency. You will need to sign a letter of authorization. A standard phrase to use is

    'I authorize …… (name of person or agency) to submit my application to…… (the organization, such as the U.S. Embassy) and to collect my passport on my behalf.'

    'This letter entitles …… (name of person or agency) to enter my residence and move my property to the new premise at the address given below.'

    I, … (your name) hereby authorize ABC hospital to release medical information form my personal medical records to … (name).

    I give my permission for my research to be used for educational purposes.

    This kind of letter is very short. In many cases, one sentence is sufficient. The most important thing is for you to sign and date the letter.

  30. Complaints

    Writing an effective letter of complaint is very difficult. When you are not satisfied with products or service received, you should write a letter to the service provider. You should state what the problem is and what can be done to improve the situation without being rude or too emotional. Living in England, I happen to be an expert in this kind of letter. I have had a lot of practice. Here is an example of a real letter sent to a train company in England.

    Dear Sir/ Madam,
    I wish to make an official complaint regarding your pitiful on-line booking service. On the 7th of August, I ordered a return ticket from the on-line seat sales, travelling from London to Nottingham on 13th August. By the 12th of August, these tickets have not arrived. Calls to your customer helpline achieved nothing more than endlessly being held in queues. The next morning, I went to St. Pancras early in hope of getting replacement tickets from the staff. Having spent 20 minutes in the queue and with the train I had to catch about to leave, I was forced to purchase another set of tickets from one of your machines. Imagine my lack of surprise upon returning to London the next day. I found, waiting for me, the tickets postmarked on the day that I was travelling.

    What is particularly galling is that this is not the first time this has happened to me. Is it too demanding for you to put the tickets in the post in time for me to use them?

    I enclose the relevant tickets. Needless to say, the very least I require is the refund of the second tickets purchased. I would also like your assurances that you would improve your services, at least bringing them up to third-world standard.



    In this letter, I was very firm in saying that ‘I wish to make an official complaint regarding…your service’. I then explained the difficulties experience in buying train tickets online. It is effective to sound firm and demanding. Remain your politeness as you make a complaint. Do not just complaint for the sake of it. Before ending your letter, you should suggest how your complaint be dealt.

    You might find some of these expressions useful:
    I am writing in response to the poor service I received at ….
    I wish to make a complaint regarding… the late delivery, defective goods, rude staff.
    Would it be possible for you to…?
    I would like you to look into the matter and pay me the correct amount of my refund.
    I demand a personal apology from the personnel involved.
    I would appreciate your timely response concerning this matter.

    I would be grateful if we could bring this matter to a close.
    If you have not responded to me about this matter within seven working days from the date of this letter, I shall be making a formal complaint to… the banking ombudsman.

  31. Congratulations (on Special Occasions)

    Besides congratulating someone on his/her achievements, you can also send a note or letter of congratulations on special occasion; for instance, engagement, wedding, anniversary, new home, or retirement.


    Similar to the letter of congratulations, which we covered last week, first you should state the reason why are writing the letter; i.e., stating the occasion you wish to congratulate the recipient on. Then you can offer your congratulations. Finally, end with kind words of friendship or consideration.

    Dear Nick and Carol,

    I heard that this Monday 5 January will mark your 35th wedding anniversary, and I wish to congratulate you on your everlasting marriage. You give hope to all of us that true love does exist.

    Truly yours,

    Jack O’Niel



    The letter of congratulations might be in reply to an invitation or an announcement.

    Dear Mr. Simpson.

    Thank you for inviting us to your house-warming party on next Sunday. My wife and I would very much love to join you in celebrating your new home. We look forward to seeing you next week.

    May we also take this opportunity to wish you much happiness and prosperity as you start a new life in your new home.

    Sincerely yours,

    Lynn Stewarts



    You may find some of these expressions useful in writing a congratulation letter:

  32. Thank you for words of sympathy

    Writing letters never ends. Once you have received a letter offering condolence, you should reply with thanks when you are in the state fit enough to communicate. However, keep it short. Do not share details of your difficulties.


    Below is an example of such reply. It is in relation to the letter from Lynn Young expressing her sympathy towards the Browns’ family regarding the loss of their son.

    Dear Ms. Young,

    We thank you for your heartfelt condolence. We truly appreciate your kind words and cannot thank you enough for your kind support at the funeral.

    On behalf of the Browns’ family, we thank you again for everything.

    Best regards,

    James and Barbara Brown



    Just a short note full of thanks is enough for this occasion. If you can, it is a good idea to add specific thanks for the person’s help.


    Here are some expressions you may find useful:


    Thank you for your sincere condolences/ expression of sympathy.

    Thank you for being with us/ sending your warm thoughts/ your encouragements during our difficult time.

    Thank you for taking care of Peter while I was in hospital. I could not have managed without your help.

  33. Thank-You Letters


    Once you have been to a party, you should send the host a thank you letter. It can also be sent after you have received a present.


    Thank you letters or notes are very easy to write. First of all, you should mention the event attended or present received. Then you should express your gratitude or compliments. Before, you end your letter, you should express your thanks once again. It sounds a bit redundant, but you will be happy to receive well-written thanks yourself.


    Below is an example of a thank you letter to the hosts of a party.

    Dear Mr. and Mrs. Smythe,

    We wish to thank you once again for inviting us to your anniversary party, where good time was had by all. It was a successful event, and we really enjoyed ourselves.

    Thank you again for being such wonderful hosts. We look forward to seeing you soon.

    Truly yours,



    Another example of letter in appreciation of a present received.

    Dear Mr. Jones,

    We would like to thank you for delighting us with your presence at our anniversary. We were glad you could join us. We were also delighted at the painting you kindly brought for us. It was very special, and we will put it up in my study.

    Thank you once again for coming and for the exquisite present.

    Sincerely yours,



    Here are some expressions you can use when expressing your appreciation.


    We wish to express our deep appreciations for …….

    Your company was very much appreciated at our party.
    Your generous gift is very much appreciated.

  34. Making Invitations


    Similar to making an announcement is an invitation. In some cases, you can do both in the same letter; for instance, announcing an opening of a new business and inviting guests to the event.


    Below is an example of a party invitation:

    Dear Mr. and Mrs. Smythe,

    We cordially invite you to our silver wedding anniversary on Monday 24 November 2003 at the Sundeck of Landmark Hotel. The white-tie dinner party will commence with cocktails at 7.30 followed by a 5 course sit-down meal and some dancing!

    Please refer to the attached menu and please forward your choices to us with the reply.

    We look forward to seeing you there.
    Truly yours,

    Ted and Mary Freeman
    RSVP.



    You do not have to get to the point right away; you can make an introduction to the topic. For example, in the above letter you can say:


    After 25 years of marriage, it is time to relive the fun we had at our wedding.


    Then you have to make and invitation. You may use these following expressions:


    We cordially invite you to our party.
    You are cordially invited to a special preview of Matrix Revolution.
    We would like to invite you to the grand opening of our South-East Asian headquarter.
    We would like you to join us at our promotional event.


    In the invitation, you must give important details of date, time, and venue.


    If you have a special request for your guests—such as dress codes--, you should include it in the letter. In the above letter, the guests are requested to dress formally in white, and make a menu selection. But most importantly, the guests are requested to reply whether or not they can come to the event. ‘RSVP’ is short for ‘Repondez s’il vous plait’, which means ‘Please reply’.


    Finally you can end your letter with


    We look forward to seeing you then.
    It would be great if you could come.

  37. Other Details in a Formal Letter (I)

    Last week, we learned about the essential parts of a letter such as recipient's address, date, salutation and complimentary close. There are other parts of letters that were left unmentioned. You might have wondered whether and where to add the subject line.

    First of all, let us have a look at this letter:

  38. Giving Personal Advice


    Normally, people do not write letters to give personal advice. When advice is needed, people best talk face to face and in confidentiality. Nevertheless, this week we will look at some advice from an 'Agony Aunt' to look at some expressions you may use when giving advice. An agony aunt is usually a persona in a newspaper or column, giving advice regarding health, social etiquette, and relationship.

    Below is an example of a personal problem, followed by an advice. Both of them are fictional.



    Dear Agony Aunt,

    I am 17 years old and I am gay! I don't know whether or how to tell my parents. Do you think that I should wait until I am a little older before I tell them? People say that it might be a phase and it will soon go away, but I don't think so. I am very attracted to guys and have no interest in girls at all. I do not want to worry my parents, but on the other hand, it is difficult to keep a secret from them. I am the only son, and I do not want to disappoint them.




    Dear Kevin,

    You sound like a confident and caring person. I am sure that your parents appreciate you for who you are. They may react negatively to your sexual preference; however, I think you should tell them. Sooner or later, they will find out and it is best that they find out sooner and from you.




    In asking for personal advice, you can use these expressions:
    What should I do?
    What do you think I should do?
    Can you give me any advice?
    I was wondering if you could help.

    In offering advice, you may find these expressions useful:

    I think you should….
    You ought to….
    You had better….
    It would be a good idea to….
    I suggest you….

  39. Resignation

    Weeks ago we looked at a letter of resignation: how you can write a resignation if you have a new job or you want to retire for various other reasons. This week, we will look at how to write in response to the resignation.

    Dear Ms. Seymour,


    It is with deep regrets that we accept your resignation as a credit controller of the AMI.


    We always enjoyed having you on our team and appreciated all of the fine contributions you have made to our organization as a credit controller. On behalf of everyone at AMI, I wish you all the best in your future career.

  40. Refusing to Write a Reference Letter


    Last week, we started a new topic, reference letter. You need a reference letter from your professor or employer when you apply for a job, school or scholarship. Last week, we looked at how you can write to the referee to request a letter of recommendation. This week, we will approach the topic from the point of view of a referee.

    When you are asked to write a reference letter, you may feel that you do not know the person well enough to provide a good reference, or that you cannot say anything good about the person. If these are the case, you should refuse to write the letter, rather than providing not so good reference.

    The example below is a reply to the letter requesting reference from last week.



    Dear Miss Wilkinson,
    I feel that I am not the suitable person to comment on your academic performance, based on one project and information from your transcript. If I were to provide you with the reference, I would be making the judgement from second hand information similarly to the decision makers at Alberta. Although I gave you an A for your project, that was my evaluation of the particular project, not on your overall performance. You would optimize your chance of being accepted more if you asked someone more qualified than I am.





    The letter below is from a previous employer with whom a candidate worked only for a short time, in reply to the letter from last week.



    Your request for a letter of recommendation from our firm cannot be granted. While the work that Mr. Anan Kongman performed for us was always satisfactory, we do not feel that it would be fair to you, Khun Anan or our firm to evaluate his personality and capabilities based on a two-month tenure of employment.

    If any inquiries are made of us, we will reply most favorably. We are sorry we cannot be of any assistance at this point.

  41. Dealing with Complaints (2)

    Last week, we looked at how you can acknowledge complaints when you don't have time or enough information in replying to them. Now it's time to face the music. We will look at some examples of reply letters to complaints.
    Replying to complaints is the most difficult letter to write because most of the time, you have to offer apologies and make compensations. It is even harder when complaints are not justified.



    This week, we will look at how you can deal with complaints when you are obviously in the wrong. Let us have a look at an example:





    Dear Ms. Bell,

    Thank you for writing to us on …. Please accept my apologies for the problems you experienced with our Contact Centre.

    By way of apology, I am enclosing travel voucher to the value of ?24.44-being the full cost of your additional tickets. These vouchers are valid for one year and can be used as full or part payment towards a future rail journey-either with Midland Mainline or with another train operating company.
    Tickets are posted at least five days in advance and are addressed in line with the information provided at the time of booking. However, as you may imagine, the centre processes many thousands of tickets each day and, from time to time, it is inevitable that a small percentage may take a bit longer than normal to arrive. Where tickets have not been received, customers are advised to telephone the centre to arrange for replacement tickets.

    However, I do realize that it may have taken longer than normal to get through. The Contact Centre were experiencing problems with new telephone system that was installed, and there were a few teething problems. These have now been resolved and queuing times have now been reduced. Naturally the Contact Centre carefully monitor the number of incoming calls throughout the day to identify any peaks in demand and aim to provide the maximum number of staff during those very busy times. However, from time to time, there can be sudden, unexpected high levels of demand that cannot always be anticipated.

    Once again, please accept my apologies for the disappointing level of service provided by Midland Mainline and for the problems this caused you. Despite your recent experience, I hope you will use Midland Mainline's services in the future.

    Yours sincerely,

  42. Rejection Letter

    You probably have seen a few rejection letters but never written one. This week we will look at how to break bad news to job applicants.


    After finding the right candidates for the position, you should inform other unsuccessful candidates as soon as possible. Make your rejection clear. Give your reasons, but do not say anything negative.

    Here is an example:
    Dear Mr. Jones,

    Thank you for applying for the Research Assistant post in the Centre for the History of Science, Technology and Medicine.

    I regret to inform you that after careful consideration we will not be taking your application further for this post.

    I would like to thank you for the interest you have shown in the post at Imperial College London.

    May I take this opportunity to wish you every success in your career.

    Sincerely yours,

  43. Congratulations


    When you have heard good news from or about your friends, colleagues, business partners or clients, you should send them a letter or a short note to compliment and congratulate them on their success.


    First of all, you would like to tell them the purpose of your letter. You can state a specific achievement on which you wish to compliment the recipient. You can also add specific details in praising the recipient’s characteristics that lead to his/her success. Then you might end the letter with wishes. Let’s have a look at the following example:

    Dear Kim,

    I was not surprised at all to learn that you have finished your master’s degree with distinctions. Your hard work and strong determination is known to all of us at IBM. On behalf of the IBM sales team, I would like to congratulate on your outstanding achievement and wish you all the best for the future.

    Congratulations!

  44. Offering Condolence


    In one of the examples in the last column, somebody missed a social engagement because of a death in his/her family. To take up on that theme, this week we will look at letters giving condolence.


    When your colleague, friend or acquaintance has had bad news: i.e. divorce, losing parents, child, spouse, pet, losing jobs, or having a terminal illness, you should offer your sympathy. One way to do it is to send the person a letter offering condolence as in the example below :

    Dear Mr. and Mrs. Brown,

    I am sorry to have learned about your son's untimely passing. I wish I could offer more solace to both of you.

    Please accept my sincere condolence for your loss.

    With greatest sympathy,

  45. Replying to an Invitation


    When you receive an invitation--whether or not it says ‘RSVP’--you should reply. If the invitation is informal, you can reply via telephone; however, it is more polite to reply to formal invitations in writing.


    Here are two letters in response to the invitation on ‘Making Invitation’, featured in this column two weeks ago:

    Letter 1: Accepting an Invitation

    Dear Mr. and Mrs. Freeman,

    We received your invitation with absolute joy. My wife and I would very much like to join you in celebrating your silver wedding anniversary. We do look forward to seeing you then.

    Sincerely yours,





    John and Carol Smythe



    Letter 2: Declining an Invitation

    Dear Mr. and Mrs. Freeman,

    Thank you for inviting us to your upcoming wedding anniversary. We would like to come; unfortunately, we have made other arrangements on that day.

    Apologies for not being to celebrate your anniversary with you. Best wishes and happy anniversary.

    Sincerely yours,



    John and Carol Smythe

  46. Making Announcements


    This sounds rather grander than it is. Giving information to general public is a more humble way to put it. For instance, if your office has moved to a different address, you will have to inform your correspondence. Another example is when you launch a marketing project or arrange an event. Making announcements is similar to ‘advertising’.


    The example below is an interoffice announcement of a new staff.

    Dear colleagues,

    As of 1 November 2003, Ms. Catherine Brown will join our sales team as an assistant product manager. Ms. Brown has valuable experiences in sales, accounting and product analysis. In her spare time when she is not after hard sales, she enjoys swimming and playing tennis.

    Please join me in welcoming Ms. Brown to our family and making her a part of our successful team.

    Sincerely yours,

  47. Arranging Meetings


    With today’s technology, we rarely write a letter; let alone arranging an appointment via letters. Nevertheless, letters are still in use. They are good for keeping records, especially when they are sent to many people.


    The example below requests an appointment.

    Dear Sirs/Madams,


    NetTech has upgraded our products, which are more versatile and sophisticated than ever. We would like to demonstrate the pull power of our software to our clients. Would it be possible for us to arrange a workshop for your staff sometime next month? The workshop will consist of two sessions, each one and a half hour long.


    Could you please confirm the time with us by October 15?


    We would appreciate your timely reply and do look forward to meeting you.

  48. Art Resume


    Resume or curriculum vitae (CV) is the same. It forms part of your job application. This resume we will be looking at is much different from the ones we have seen. It is an art resume.


    If you apply for a job of a graphic designer or photographer, the layout of your resume is more important than the information on it. I cannot train you to be 'arty'. So, we will only go over the content of the resume.

    Curriculum Vitae

    Name: Gustav Brano
    Address: 54 Sukhumvit Soi 3
    Bangkok 10260
    Telephone: 01 369 5858
    Date of Birth: 20/09/1975
    Nationality: Polish
    Voice: Alto

    Experience:


    I finished at the Academy of Music in Katowice in 1991. From 1990 to December 2002 I was a soloist in the 'Camerate Silesia' chamber choir in Katowice, Poland.


    I regularly participated in the prestigious Warsaw Autumn Contemporary Music Festival, and the Wratislavia Cantans Festival. I appeared many times in the Polish Radio Concert Hall in Warsaw, as well as abroad.


    I have in my repatoir both a'capela as well as vocal and instrumental works from the renaissance to the present day. In the Warsaw music festival, I performed Anton Webern's Cantatas with the Sinfonia Varsovia under Ed Spanjard (1995), and Witold Lutostanski's trois poems d'Henri Michaux with the National Polish Radio Symphony Orchestra (1996). In 1999, I performed with Luciano Berio's Sinfonia. In the same year I performed with the Camerata Silesia, I also sang in the famous Gewandhaus in Lipzig and Taiwan. In 2000 the ensemble gave a series of concerts at the EXPO in Hanover.


    I have made thirteen records with Camerata Silesia, the last one with Emma Kirkby from the concerts in Poland. Concerts included were, G G Gorczycki's Completorium and J S Bach's Kantata's Nach dir, herr verlanget mich BWV150.


    I was involved in Milcotaj Zielenski's offertoria et communiones, which won a nomination for the Fryderyk 1996 'Record of the Year Award' in Studio Magazine. This piece is a fine example of early Polish music, such as Barttomiej Pekiel's Missa Pulcherrima (1997).

    Hobbies:


    Painting and Singing.

    Dear Khun Akom,

    With reference to your letter on 11 August 2003 regarding my new rental contract, I would like to make some amendments. Please refer to the enclosed article with special attention to the paragraph 5. I noticed that the rent has increased from 8,000 to 9,000 baht a month. I was not informed of this change prior to this. Could you please check if it is a typing mistake or that I was not aware of the new terms?

  50. Asking for Advice

    Asking for advice is similar to the letter requesting information. It can be more personal as advice involves personal attitudes, rather than straightforward information. First of all, you should introduce yourself and the situation requiring advice. Then you should emphasize that comment, advice or help is needed. Be as specific as you can, regarding how the recipient can help you. Finally, express your appreciation or anticipation of a reply.


    Here is an example of letter, asking for advice.

    Dear Sir/Madam,


    My grandmother left me with an antique set of silver cutlery with your trademark on it. They were given to her as family heirloom, and they are about 80 years old. Unfortunately, a couple of pieces are damaged, and some are missing. I was wondering if you could, first of all, identify the pieces and give an estimation on their current value. Please refer to the attached list and a photocopy of the pattern of the cutlery.


    Secondly, could you please tell me whether I can get the damaged pieces repaired and how much it will cost, and also whether I can acquire new pieces to complete my set? I understand that this may be difficult for you given the time lapsed. However, I really wish to preserve this family heirloom.


    I look forward to your reply and would be grateful for your help.

  51. Thanking someone for the letter of recommendation

    After you receive a letter of recommendation as requested, you should thank the person writing it. This also lets him/her know that the letter safely arrives.


    If you are the person for whom the recommendation is, you should thank the person for providing a reference. This will also maintain a good relationship between you and the referee and ensures good reference in the future. A short thank-you note will be sufficient. Some new whether or not you are successful with you application will be appreciated as well.

    Dear Professor Needham,


    I wish to thank you for providing with a reference letter to apply for a place for a masters' degree. The application deadline is 15 April; however, I will not find out the results until June 2004. I will keep you posted.


    Thank you again for the letter. Sincerely yours,


    If you are a prospective employer or school, this may not be necessary. However, it is a nice gesture to send the referee a thank you letter.

    Dear Mr. Green,


    Thank you for your reference re Mr. Adam Scott as it forms a vital part of our hiring process. We appreciate your co-operation in the matter.

  52. Requesting a Letter of Recommendation

    When you apply for a job, scholarship or a degree, a letter of recommendation forms a main part of your application. You may personally ask your former employer, or professor who are well aware of your work or academic performance. Be sure to give your referee enough time and information to provide a good reference.


    In requesting a letter recommendation, you should give information regarding why you need the letter, who the recipient is and when you need it. Here is an example:

    Dear Professor Needham,
    I am applying for a place in the International Relation Master Degree's program at the University of Alberta. I have already forwarded my application to the University although the deadline is on 30 April 2004. As a project supervisor who is aware of my academic progress, would you be kind enough to write a letter of reference on my behalf?

    Please send your letter directly to the University of Alberta. An addressed and stamped envelope is provided for you.

    I am also enclosing a photocopy for the application and a portfolio of my projects done last semester, along with a copy of my transcript. I hope that these will provide sufficient information about my work.

    Thank you for your time and all of the support and guidance given to me last semester.


    Sincerely yours,



    Here is another example of a letter requesting reference. When applying for a position, you may be asked for names of referees and the organization you are applying to will contact the persons directly.

    Dear Mr. Jaidee,
    Mr. Anan Kongman has applied with our company for a position in our bookkeeping department. He has given your name as a character reference. Would you be kind enough to provide us with your written evaluation of this individual. Please be assured that your response will be treated with confidentiality. Thank you.

  53. Dealing with Complaints (1)


    Complaint letters are difficult to write. However, reply to one is more difficult. No matter how offensive the letter of complaint is, you have to deal with it politely and tactfully. Sometimes it is not possible to deal with the complaint right away; therefore, you should send a letter acknowledging the complaint and offer an initial apology or concern.


    Below are some examples of real letter I received as reply to my complaints :

    From a bank :

    Thank you for you letter of 15 January 2004, although I was sorry to hear that you have had a cause to complain.


    In line with Financial Services Authority regulations, we will aim to get a full reply out to you within 28 days.


    From a train company :

    We acknowledge receipt of your letter, received on 28 December 2003.


    Thank you for taking the time and trouble to write to us. We realise how important it is to provide a quick response, particularly if customers have had a bad experience.


    Although we do hope to do so sooner, you should receive a full response within 20 working days of receipt of your letter. Please bear with us as due to a number of instances of severe delays recently, we have experienced an increase in correspondence and are taking longer than we would like to respond.


    If you have any queries or concerns that are of an urgent nature, please contact our Customer Service Team on 08457 221 125.

  54. Resignation Letter

    When you have decided to quit your job, whatever the reasons, you need to hand in a resignation letter. This is not just a matter of courtesy. It is required by law that you give your employer advance notice.


    This is another difficult letter to write well. Therefore, you would like to keep it short and to the point. You will need to include the effective date of your resignation, an explanation for resigning and a brief positive comment about the company. Many people think the explanation and brief comment is not necessary. They are right, but it would be great if you could give them as this is to maintain good relationship with your former employer.

    Here is an example:

    Dear Mr. Brown,

    Please accept this letter as my formal notice of resignation from AMI Corporation, effective 27 February 2004.

    Thank you very much for the opportunity to work here. I wish you continued success in the future.

  55. Compliments


    When you receive good service or products, you should write a letter to the service provider to ensure your good future relationship. Similar to thank-you letters, letters giving compliments are easy to write. You should refer to your specific experience or a member of staff who deserves compliment.

    Dear Front Desk Manager,

    I am writing to thank you for the impressive service we received during our stay at your hotel. Your team is very courteous and helpful. I would like to convey my special thanks to Ms. Needham, who assisted us with our transport to the airport. Without her help, we would have missed our flight back home.

    I will recommend your hotel to family and friend. I wish you continued success in your business.

  56. Apologizing

    You have been invited to a party. You said you would go, but the party took place without you. You will have some explaining to do.


    When you miss an important event; i.e. a social gathering or an appointment, you should apologize and offer an explanation. You should do so as soon as possible, maybe on the phone. To make it more formal, you should write to the host to apologize.

    Dear Mr. and Mrs. Jones,

    I am awfully sorry for not being able to attend your party last Friday despite the confirmation given to you the week before. This is due to a family misfortune.

    Please accept my apology. I hope that my absence did not cause you any inconvenience.

  57. Wedding Invitation


    Besides writing an inviting letter, people send invitation cards, which are more convenient. All you need is the information of time and place and the occasion. However, some invitation cards are more delicate than others, wedding invitation for instance.


    Traditionally, the bride’s parents pay for the party. Therefore the invitation will come from them:

  58. Refusing appointments

    Refusing appointments is very difficult to do since rejections are normally offending. However, there will be times when you have to do it.


    Before looking at the example below, let me give you a context of this letter. Recently, many embassies have changed their policy regarding visa applications. They no longer accept walk-in applicants. You will need to send a copy of your documents and arrange an appointment with them.


    Here is some bad news for Mana Meesak when an embassy refuses to grant him an appointment.

    Dear Mr. Meesak,

    Thank you for your visa application. Unfortunately, we cannot arrange an interview for you for the time that you require. We are fully booked for the next three weeks. We do advise you to make your future applications well in advance before your trip.

    Making requests is a common letter, and it is easy to write. For brevity, only the body of the letter is given here:

    Dear Sirs/Madams:


    I have a canteen of silver cutlery, some of which are missing. I would like to replace them. I am not sure whether you still hold stock of the particular pattern I have. Would you be kind enough as to send me a copy of your recent catalogue and price list?

    Last week, we looked at components of a resume in general. However, a technical resume is different from an art resume. They need different style and techniques in writing.

    This week, we will look at a resume of a salesperson first.

    Welcome to the new lesson, presented to you by your Nanny. We have spent a long time on your grammar and English usage. Now it is time to put it in good use. Are you ready for a test?


    In the ‘Business Letter Writing’, you will learn to write various kinds of letters such as requesting and giving information, arranging events, complaining, and apologising. We will also cover the style of writing in faxes, memos and e-mails. But the main focus is on letter since it is the most formal form. Once you have learned that, you can adapt it to suit other media of communication.


    The first lesson is the ‘look’ of a letter, what is included and in which sequence. It might be slow getting started, but please be patient. A letter represents you and you should make it speak for you best.

  69. จดหมายสมัครงาน, ใบประวัติส่วนตัว

    เอกสารประกอบการสมัครงาน
    จดหมายสมัครงาน
    คือ หนังสือหรือจดหมายที่ผู้ที่ต้องการจะทำงานเขียน ยื่นต่อสถานที่ประกอบการเพื่อแสดงความจำนงว่า ตนเองต้องการสมัครงาน

    การเขียนจดหมายสมัครงาน จะไม่เขียนเป็นข้อความยืดยาว และไม่แสดงประวัติส่วนตัวมากนัก ดังนั้น จดหมายสมัครงาน จะเป็นเพียงจดหมายที่แสดงว่าผู้ส่งมีความประสงค์อะไรเท่านั้น

    ใบประวัติส่วนตัว ( RESUME )
    คือ หนังสือที่แสดงรายละเอียดเกี่ยวกับประวัติของผู้สมัครงานโดยเน้นแต่ส่วนที่เกี่ยวข้องหรือข้อมูลที่เสนอให้รับสมัคร หรือสถานที่ประกอบการจะใช้พิจารณาเรียกตัวผู้สมัครงานนั้นไปสัมภาษณ์ หรือเข้างาน แต่จะไม่มีข้อมูลเฉพาะเจาะจงว่าผู้สมัครงานนั้นมีความสนใจในตำแหน่งงานใดของสถานประกอบการนั้น

    ใบสมัครงาน ( APPLICATION FORM )
    คือ หนังสือแสดงความจำนงของผู้เขียนใบสมัครที่ประสงค์จะเข้าทำงานกับสถานประกอบการนั้น ซึ่งส่วนใหญ่แบบใบสมัครงานของสถานประกอบการแต่ละแห่ง เป็นแบบเฉพาะของสถานประกอบการนั้น ผู้สมัครจึงต้องไปเขียนใบสมัครที่สถานที่ประกอบการที่ประสงค์จะสมัครงานด้วยคนเอง รายละเอียดใบสมัครงานควรประกอบด้วยข้อมูลแสดงความจำนงของผู้สมัครงานว่าประสงค์จะสมัครงานในตำแหน่งใด และข้อมูลในส่วนที่เป็นประวัติส่วนตัวของผู้สมัครประกอบกันจึงจะสมบูรณ์
    โครงสร้างจดหมายสมัครงาน

    โครงสร้างหรือรูปแบบของการเขียนจดหมายสมัครงานมีมากมายหลายรูปแบบ แต่ที่สำคัญคือ ควรจะต้องระมัดระวังในเรื่องของภาษา สำนวน หลักไวยากรณ์ ต้องมีความสละสลวยพอสมควร และในที่นี้จะแบ่งโครงสร้างของจดหมายออกเป็น 2 ประเภท คือ

    1. โครงสร้างจดหมายที่มีประวัติย่อแนบไปด้วย ( COVERING LETTER )

    เหมาะสมสำหรับผู้ที่มีประสบการณ์มากๆ ควรจะเขียนเป็นจดหมายซึ่งจบใน 1 หรือ 2 หน้ากระดาษ แล้วมีประวัติย่อแนบไปด้วย เพราะถ้าหากต้องการรวมรายละเอียดทั้งหมดเข้าไว้ในจดหมาย ก็จะทำให้จดหมายฉบับนั้นยาว ซึ่งนายจ้างอาจไม่สนใจที่จะอ่านอย่างละเอียดก็ได้ หรืออาจจะใช้กับตำแหน่งที่มีความรับผิดชอบสูง เพื่อความน่าเชื่อถือ

    2. โครงสร้างของจดหมายที่ไม่มีประวัติ ( APPLICATION LETTER )

    เหมาะสำหรับผู้ไม่มีประสบการณ์มาก่อน โดยเฉพาะอย่างยิ่งผู้ที่เพิ่งสำเร็จการศึกษามาใหม่ๆ หรือไม่เช่นนั้นนายจ้างเพียงแต่ระบุว่าให้ส่งจดหมายสมัครงานพร้อมรูปถ่ายเท่านั้น เมื่อเป็นเช่นนี้ก็อาจเขียนจดหมายสมัครงานในรูปแบบนี้ ซึ่งก็รวมรายละเอียดอื่นๆ เข้าไว้ คล้ายกับจดหมายที่มีประวัติรวมอยู่ด้วย

    .............................................

    จดหมายสมัครงานที่ถูกเรียบเรียงอย่างดีมีความสำคัญเท่า ๆ กับเรซูเม่เลยทีเดียว เพราะจดหมายสมัครงานเป็นสิ่งที่ใช้เพื่อดึงดูดความสนใจของนายจ้าง ด้วยการดึงเอาคุณสมบัติและจุดแข็งของคุณที่สอดคล้องกับตำแหน่งงานออกมาให้นายจ้างได้เห็น เคล็ดลับต่อไปนี้จะช่วยคุณให้สามารถเขียนจดหมายสมัครงานได้อย่างน่าประทับใจ

    ตอบนำออก
  70. รูปแบบและสำนวนการเขียน :
    - จดหมายที่ดีควรมีความยาวไม่เกิน 3-5 ย่อหน้า
    - ใช้ถ้อยคำที่แสดงถึงความสุภาพและความกระตือรือร้น
    - รูปแบบตัวอักษรมาตรฐานคือ Time New Roman หรือ Arial
    - ในกรณีที่พิมพ์ลงกระดาษ ควรใช้กระดาษ A4 สีขาว ความหนา 80 หรือ 100 แกรม
    - ไม่ควรเขียนจดหมายที่สั้นเกินไป (เช่น 1-2 ย่อหน้า)
    - ไม่ควรใช้รูปแบบตัวอักษรพิเศษ หรือ ตัวอักษรที่มีสีสันเพื่อดึงดูดความสนใจของนายจ้าง
    - หลีกเลี่ยงการพิมพ์ผิดหรือสะกดผิด
    เคล็ดลับอื่น ๆ :
    - ควรกล่าวเน้นในเรื่องของทักษะที่ตรงกับความต้องการในตำแหน่งที่คุณสมัคร
    - ไม่ควรใช้วิธีเขียนครั้งเดียวแล้วส่งไปสมัครงานทุกที่ ทุกตำแหน่ง

  74. 10 คำถามยอดฮิต ในการ สัมภาษณ์งาน



    10 คำถาม ที่เค้านิยมจะถามกัน โดยมากที่คุณ ควรจะเตรียมพร้อม เพราะอย่างน้อย ถ้าไม่ได้ คำถามอื่น ก็ยังพอมีคำถามที่เราตอบแล้ว ฟังดูเข้าท่าเข้าทางบ้าง ฉะนั้นคำถามที่คุณ ควรจะรู้ มีดังต่อไปนี้


    1.ทำไมคุณจึงอยากทำงานที่นี่

    การที่จะทำงานทีไหนก็ตาม ผู้สัมภาษณ์จะต้องถามความเป็นมา ว่าทำไม คุณต้องการ ที่จะทำงาน ในบริษัทของเค้า และคำถามนี้ก็เป็น สิ่งที่คุณควร ทราบ และคุณก็ควรจะรู้ถึงเหตุผลของคุณอย่างแท้จริง ไม่ไช่ตอบไปสุ่มสี่สุ่มห้า เช่นคุณอาจจะตอบว่า

    "ดิฉันมีความสนใจในระบบการทำงานของที่นี่มาก และก็ทราบมาว่า ทางบริษัท ได้เปิดโอกาสให้พนักงานทุกคน ได้แสดงความสามารถ ได้อย่างเต็มที่ค่ะ และดิฉันยังทราบมาอีกว่า ที่บริษัทรับฟังข้อเสนอ ของพนักงานทุกคน และ พร้อมจะแก้ไขถ้าข้อเสนอนั้น จะสามารถ พัฒนา ให้บริษัทให้มีความมั่นคง และหน้าเชื่อถือยิ่งขึ้นค่ะ"

    2.ทำไมคุณถึงออกจากงานที่เคยทำอยู่

    คำถามนี้จะง่ายมาก สำหรับน้อง ๆ ที่ยังไม่เคยทำงานมาก่อน แต่จะเป็นคำถาม ที่ยากมาก สำหรับคนที่เคย มีประสบการณ์ ในการทำงานมาแล้ว และเป็น คำถามที่ตรงประเด็น มากเลยทีเดียว เพราะหากคุณพอใจ ต่องานที่ทำอยู่ คุณคงไม่ต้องหางานใหม่ ทำหรอกจริงไหมล่ะ คำถามนี้จึงเป็นคำถาม ที่คุณ ต้องเตรียมตัวอย่างมาก เลยทีเดียว ตัวอย่างเช่น

    "ผมอยากจะเรียนรู้ถึงงานสายใหม่ ที่น่าจะเหมาะสมกับตัวผม มากกว่า ที่ผม เคยทำอยู่ครับ และผมคิดว่างานที่นี้ เหมาะสมกับผม และผม พร้อมที่จะทำงาน ตรงนี้มากที่สุด"

    และที่สำคัญ คุณห้ามนำข้อเสีย ที่คุณได้รู้จาก บริษัทเก่า มาพูดเด็ดขาด เพราะสิ่งนั้น อาจทำให้คะแนน แห่งความเชื่อถือ ของคุณ ลดลงก็ได้

    3.ลองเล่าประวัติของคุณแบบย่อ ๆ

    การที่จะทำงานร่วมกันได้นั้น สิ่งที่สำคัญ ก็จะเป็นเรี่อง ข้อมูลส่วนตัว ประวัติ ความเป็นมา เล็ก ๆ น้อย ๆ ที่สามารถบ่งบอกถึง นิสัยใจคอของคุณได้ และ สามารถบอกถึง ความเหมาะสม กับงานด้านนี้ของคุณ ในการตอบคำถาม จึงควรอยู่ในแง่ของ การทำงาน บุคลิกภาพส่วนตัว และแง่คิดของชีวิต บ้างนิดหน่อย คุณไม่ควรจะเล่าประวัติชีวิตของคุณให้มากเกินไป เพราะการพูดมากเกินไป อาจจะทำให้เกิดผลเสียแก่ตัวคุณเอง เช่น

    " ผมเป็นคนเคารพเวลา ไม่ชอบให้ใครรอ เพราะฉะนั้นเวลาในการ ทำงานของผม จะตรงต่อเวลาเสมอ แต่ผมก็มีข้อเสียนะครับ คือเวลา ที่ผมรอใคร แล้วคนคนนั้น ไม่มาสักที ผมก็มักจะควบคุมอารมณ์ ของตัวเอง ไม่ค่อยได้ทั้ง ๆ ที่เหตุผลของเค้า เป็นเหตุผลที่น่าฟังมาก ก็ตาม และตอนนี้ผมกำลังหาวิธี เพื่อแก้ไข ข้อบกพร่องของผมอยู่ครับ"

    4.คุณคิดจะทำอะไรให้กับบริษัทมากที่สุด

    คำถามนี้จะทำให้คุณบอกถึง ความสามารถของคุณ ที่จะทำให้กับบริษัท ได้มากน้อยแค่ไหน ในการบอกถึงคุณสมบัติ ที่คุณสามารถทำได้นั้น ไม่ถือว่า เป็นการโอ้อวดว่า คุณเก่งแต่อย่างไร แต่สิ่งที่คุณพูดนั้น จะสามารถสร้าง น้ำหนัก ในการตอบคำถามให้แก่คุณได้

  75. 5.จะมีปัญหาอะไรไหมหากต้องทำงานล่วงเวลา

    เจอคำถามนี้เข้า ก็ทำให้อึ้งเอาการ อยู่ทีเดียว ก็แหมใครอยากจะไป ทำงาน ล่วงเวลา หากไม่ได้ อะไรตอบแทนบ้างเลย ฉะนั้นในการตอบคำถามนี้ คุณควรจะกล่าวถึง ความพร้อมเสมอ ในการทำงานล่วงเวลา ถึงแม้ว่า ค่าตอบแทน อาจจะน้อยมาก หรือในการทำงานล่วงเวลา จะไปตรงกับ ตารางนัดสำคัญ กับคนพิเศษของคุณก็ตาม

    "เพื่อให้งานประสบความสำเร็จ ผมก็พร้อมจะทำงาน ล่วงเวลาเสมอ"

    6.เรื่องทั่ว ๆ ไป

    ในการสัมภาษณ์คุณอาจจะต้องพูดถึง เรื่องปัจจุบัน ไม่ว่าจะเป็น ข่าวทาง การเมือง เศรษฐกิจ สังคม และค่านิยม ที่เกิดขึ้นในเวลานั้น เป็นข่าว หนังสือพิมพ์ คำถามนี้จะแสดงให้เห็นว่า คุณให้ความสนใจกับข่าวสาร บ้านเมือง ไม่เป็นคนที่ตกข่าว สามารถพูดคุยได้ทุกเรื่อง ที่เกี่ยวกับ เหตุการณ์ปัจจุบัน การทราบข้อมูลเหล่านี้ อาจทำให้คะแนน การสัมภาษณ์ ของคุณ เพิ่มขึ้นมาก็ได้

    7.ความใฝ่ฝันและโครงการในอนาคต

    เป็นการพิจารณาถึง ความเอาจริงเอาจังของคุณ เพราะหากคุณสามารถบอกถึง ทิศทางในอนาคตได้ นั่นก็แสดงว่าคุณสามารถรับผิดชอบ ในงานที่ได้รับ มอบหมายอย่างดีทีเดียว ก็ขนาดอนาคตที่ไม่มีใคร สามารถรู้ได้ คุณยัง วางแผนสู่อนาคต ได้อย่างเป็นระบบ นั่นก็หมายถึงว่า คุณไม่ได้มีความคิด ย่ำอยู่กับที่จริงไหม

    8. คุณมีงานอดิเรกอะไรไหม

    คำถามในข้อนี้จะเจาะประเด็นว่า คุณรู้จักแบ่งเวลาของคุณ ให้เกิดประโยชน์ มากน้อยแค่ไหน และแสดงให้เห็นถึง บุคลิกของคุณว่า คุณเป็นคนอย่างไร ร่าเริง เปิดเผย หรือเก็บตัว เช่น ถ้าคุณตอบว่า คุณชอบอ่านหนังสือ คุณอาจจะ ถูกถาม ต่อว่า หนังสือเล่มล่าสุดที่คุณอ่าน คือเรื่องอะไร และอาจให้คุณวิจารณ์ ถึงหนังสือเล่มนั้น ในการถามคำถามนี้ ยังสามารถได้รู้ถึง ความละเอียด อ่อนของคุณ การรู้จักสังเกต การมีปฏิภาณไหวพริบ กระทั่ง การใช้ชีวิต ร่วมกับคนอื่น ๆ อีกด้วย

    9. คุณต้องการเงินเดือนเท่าไหร่

    เป็นเรื่องที่ยากมาก ในการตอบคำถามนี้ ถ้าหากว่า งานที่คุณไปสมัคร ระบุ เงินเดือนไว้แล้ว ก็เกิดความสบายใจหน่อย แต่ถ้าไม่ได้ระบุถึง อัตรา ค่าจ้างเลย ก็แย่หน่อย ทางที่ดีคุณควรตอบ ตามอัตราเงินเดือน ที่คนทั่วไป ได้รับกัน เช่น อาจจะถามเพื่อน ที่ทำงาน เหมือนกับตำแหน่ง ที่คุณสมัคร หรือตอบตาม เงินเดือนราชการ ที่คุณทราบก็ได้ แต่ถ้าหากผู้สัมภาษณ์ เสนอเงินเดือน มาสูง หรือต่ำกว่า อัตราที่คุณรู้ คุณก็อย่าพึ่งตอบตกลง คุณอาจจะขอเวลาในการ พิจารณาสัก 3 วัน แล้วค่อยให้คำตอบ เพราะถ้า เกิดคุณตอบตกลงไปแล้ว และคุณมาขอขึ้นทีหลังก็เหมือนกับว่า คุณเป็นคนโลเล ไม่น่าเชื่อถือก็ได้

    10. คุณมีข้อสงสัยอะไรอีกไหม

    เจอคำถามนี้ก็บ่งบอกว่า การสัมภาษณ์ได้สิ้นสุดลง แต่ในการตอบคำถาม ข้อสุดท้ายนี้ จะตอบอย่างไรดี ที่จะแสดงว่า เราไม่เป็นคนไม่ฉลาดออกมา เช่น คุณอาจถามย้ำ เรื่องเวลาการทำงานก็ได้

    "ผมอยากทราบเวลา ที่แน่นอน ในการทำงานของผมครับ"

    หรือคุณอาจจะไม่ต้องการถามอะไรก็ได้ เพราะการ ไม่ได้ถามก็เท่ากับว่า คุณได้ทราบข้อมูล ของบริษัทมากพอแล้ว แต่ถ้าเกิด สงสัยจริง ๆ ก็ควรตั้ง คำถามที่ฟังแล้วดูดี และถูกใจนายจ้างของคุณ ให้มากที่สุด


    คำถามที่พูดมาข้างต้นนี้ดู ดูแล้วไม่ยากเลยใช่ไหม สำหรับการเตรียมตัว ในการ สัมภาษณ์ของคุณ แค่คุณมีความพร้อมกับ 10 คำถามเด็ด ๆ นี้ คุณก็สามารถ ชนะใจ กรรมการ ได้แล้ว อย่างน้อยมันคงมีสักคำถามล่ะ ที่ตรงกับการเตรียมตัวของคุณ และสร้าง ความมั่นใจ ในการตอบคำถามของคุณได้ แล้วอย่าลืมนำไป ปฏิบัติดูนะ เพราะสิ่งนี้ เป็นเส้นทาง ที่จะทำให้คุณสามารถได้รับ คัดเลือกเป็นพนักงาน ในบริษัทที่คุณใฝ่ฝัน ได้อย่างภาคภูมิใจ.
