 场景:

interviewer:Sometimes a work assignment requires frequent travel. How do you feel about the prospect of frequent travel? 

面试官:有时候工作需要你经常出差, 你怎么看?

问题分析:

如果你兴高采烈地说: “哦, 出差是免费旅游的好机会呀!”面试官只能哑然失笑或者苦笑, 因为你太天真了, 对于绝大多数人来说, 出差绝对不是“美差”而是“苦差”。

所以, 在这个问题上, 面试官要捕捉的信息点有两个:

第一, 这个家伙成熟了没有?他对于这份职位本身的缺陷有没有心理上的准备?

第二, 这个家伙到底会采用什么样的方法, 避免出差损害了自己的身体健康, 并令精神萎靡不振?

所以说, 面试官不想听大话和空话, 他要听的是一些实实在在的小措施, 能够让你常出差而不会太辛苦。

回答示范1:

I traveled a lot in my last job. I traveled almost every week. As far as I know, this job requires travel, but not every week. So it wouldn’t be worse than my last one.

点评1: 以事实来回答质疑, 永远是最上策。

回答示范2: I am very lucky that I can eat and sleep very well on trips. I’ve never been carsick, and even when sitting on a train I can sleep well. So, I never need to worry about frequent traveling.

点评2: 这是个很踏实很中肯的回答。有很多女性在出差的时候神经衰弱, 面有菜色, 凄惨无比, 老板当然希望你能够在出差时吃好、 睡好、 精神好。

回答示范3:

I don’t worry about frequent travel because my daughter is taken care of by my parents, who are both well-educated scholars. It is not a big deal for them to educate a two-year-old little thing.

点评3: 有家庭有小孩的申请人要主动告诉面试官自己是如何处理家庭和工作的关系的。这是一个很博得人好感的回答, 有教授级的老爸老妈来带自己两岁的小家伙, 还有什么后顾之忧呢?
