More and more EFL students are preparing for school, or job opportunities in the US or in American companies based around the world. If you’re one of them, I'll help you with:
Resume (CV) Writing and Review
1. Why the two-page resume (maximum) is all you need--the less you write, the more the American HR director or your potential employer will read.
2. The need for the concise cover letter--what can you put in it that doesn't repeat your resume?
Preparing for an American Interview:
1. How to take charge of an interview by phone, SKYPE or in person.
2. How to overcome English phone phobia--the fear of speaking in English on the phone.
2. The importance of body language in the American job interview (firm handshake, smiling, eye contact).
3. How to sum yourself up in one sentence.
4. The questions you should ask American companies to impress them and to decide if you really want to work there.
How to Get Along in the American Job Office
1. Not to correct or look smarter than your boss.
2. When you can be informal; when you should be formal.
3. How and when to ask for a raise.
4. When--and when not to--become involved in office politics.
I have a really good track record in helping foreign job seekers get a job requiring American (or British) English. You can be one of them.
This class is actually 50 minutes long, which is the best length of time for a language lesson.
