怎麼寫有重點的英文自傳?

自傳(Autobiography)是個人背景以及學、經歷、專長的附加說明,只要充分明白的補充或強調自己的優點與想法即可,不需長篇大論或使用艱深的語句,尤其是英文自傳,通常以四到五段為主,並且也是儘量濃縮在一張A4頁面當中。 

英文自傳應把握2個重點: 
1. 個人基本狀況,簡單說明個人成長環境、家庭成員、個性等等
2. 適度描述,不需要太多瑣碎的資訊。

內容需具體寫出三件事:
(一)個人專長與所學
說明自己在校所學所訓練的專業能力,並且提供自己特殊成就或優異表現的例子。

自傳範例→
My name is Chan Siu Lin,From Taichung. I graduated from Soochow University and my major was in History. There are 4 people in my family. My father works in the trade company as a sales representative., and my mother is a house wife…. Because of coming to Taiwan to study, I developed an independent personality. In order to lighten my parents burden, I took several part-time job, like waitress, sales assistant, .From those working experience, I learned many great skills in dealing with people. 

(二)課外活動或打工經驗 
如有打工經驗或社團經驗,可說明這過程中的收穫,以及對於所求職工作能力需求的幫助,如有實例可佐證更好。另外,個人從這些活動經驗中的心得,對於某項職場工作倫理的體悟,也可提出來,藉此展現自己待人處世的成熟度。

自傳範例→

So I browsed all kinds of multi-media design and try to learn every courses of communication issue that school offered such as programming, marketing, design, writing and even filming. In addition, I prepared myself to be one who can use design tools very well. Therefore, I’ve got the design concept and sense through implementation experience. I have designed several websites, such as JongHeng Storage Company.

(三)自我生涯期許 
個人在短期以及長期的生涯發展規劃,個人成就期許,均可加以說明。此舉可以加強雇主對於求職者求職動力、企圖心的印象。

自傳範例→

最後有禮貌的結尾
