Introduction While the job interview will require you to "say" the right things, the resume will

require you to "write" the correct things. In both cases, using proper English is extremely important. When an employer looks at your resume, their goal is to find out whether or not you're qualified for the job. There is no one format that will work in every situation. Your success will be determined by your presentation, and your grammar. When potential employers look at your resume, they will only glance at if for a few seconds. During these seconds, they will take the time to determine whether or not you're qualified, and they will also look at your presentation. If you have words that are misspelled, or you use run on sentences, or you have problems with capitalization, more than likely, your resume will be thrown in the trash. When you make English mistakes on your resume, this shows potential employers that you don't care about impressing them, because you didn't even put in the time and effort to make sure the resume was written correctly. If you're like many people, you've probably read of the many ways you need to prepare for a job interview. You've probably heard about how to dress, what to bring, and how to act. While all of these things are important, it is equally important for you to pay attention to your English. When you talk to someone that uses poor English, the first thought that probably comes to your mind is that this person is unintelligent. Would you hire this person for a job?

The answer to this question is probably no. If someone doesn't speak in an intelligent manner, it is very likely that they are unintelligent, or uneducated. While this may not be the case,

people will almost always judge you first by the way you look, and then by the things you say. When you go to a job interview, you can't be lacking in either area. The first step in reparing for your job interview is to practice speaking. Think about the common questions that are asked during the interview and come up with answers in advance.

English Vocabulary

Ever noticed that people who have a strong English vocabulary receive more attention and respect from their peers, colleagues, subordinates and authority figures? This is because speaking with a strong vocabulary indicates that you take yourself seriously. Language and the way we use words conveys intelligence and authority. A person who is a mathematical genius or an expert software developer may be highly respected for technical skills, but if the words that come out of mouth consist of a poor vocabulary, it will unfortunately, communicate a lack of intelligence.

How do you improve your English vocabulary? One of the best ways to improve your speaking voice is through reading a great deal of material. A strong English vocabulary and communication skills go hand in hand. If you must prepare and deliver speeches or lectures in your chosen profession, it is important to brush up on your vocabulary to make a good impression and engage your audience. It is not necessary to speak in ostentatious language and use “50 cent” vocabulary words that will confuse the people you are

speaking to, but having a strong command of the English language and using it n an artful manner is a skill that employers seek when looking for employees. Tutorials based on English Vocabulary are made available in this section under Career Series. English Vocabulary articles help you change the way you utilize your existing vocabulary and offer valuable tips and tricks on improving and enhancing your English Vocabulary.

How to make your Vocabulary Better

One powerful method that you can use to make your vocabulary better is to build your own dictionary. While regular dictionaries can helpful, their biggest disadvantage is their sheer size. There are too many words to learn, and you are limited in terms of the time you have. It is better to build a dictionary of words you come across as you read. If the word interests you, write it down, and when you're done reading, look it up in a dictionary, and list it in your notebook. You may also want to write a sentence that shows how the word should be used. If you do this ach time you come across an unfamiliar word when you read, your vocabulary will come passive. As you collect words and place them in your personalized dictionary, you will want to go over them often. You will want to make it your goal to use them at least once a day when you speak, or when you write a paper. The more you use the word, the more likely it is that you will remember it. Just placing the word in your dictionary is not enough. It must be applied in you every day speech. Building your own dictionary is very powerful, because over time, you will have a collection of words that are suited to you. A number of studies have shown that a word must be used at least 10

times before it is embedded in a person's brain.

The Importance of using Flashcards

You have no doubt heard about the importance of using flashcards. Flashcards have always been a popular method to help people remember important information. This is especially true when you want to increase you vocabulary level. You can use these flashcards by writing the word and the sentence on the front, and on the back of the card, you will want to write the definition of the word, along with a sentence that puts the word in the proper context. Every so often, you will want to test yourself by reading the back to determine the information on the front, and vice versa. It is also important for you to use your senses when learning a new word.

Instead of just saying the word, you will want to hear the word, see the word, and write it down. When you use more than once sense, you will increase the chances that the word will be permanently placed into your memory. It will also be crucial for you to make sure these words are used when you talk to people, and when you need to write something. By using the word for various tasks, you will become more proficient with it. While this may seem like a lot of work, in the end, it will pay off. Having a strong vocabulary can be very profitable.

Avoid Common English Mistakes in Your Resume

When it comes to getting a good job, your resume is a factor that will play a pivotal role in our success or failure. While I've talked about the importance of using proper English during the job interview, you won't even get this far if your resume isn't high in quality.

Common English Mistakes that You Must Avoid

There are a number of common mistakes that can kill your resume. By being aware of these mistakes, you will have the resources that will allow you to avoid falling victim to the fates that so many job seekers fall for. Some of these common mistakes include spelling problems, capitalization errors, and run on sentences. Some may read this and laugh, but you would be surprised by the number of people who make these mistakes. The first thing you will want to do is write a rough draft. Once you've written the rough draft, you will next want to proofread it, looking for errors that can be corrected. When you write the rough draft, don't waste time trying to make it perfect. Just write up something that will allow you to place your thoughts on a piece of paper. The rough draft is the document that will allow you to weed out mistakes before putting them on the final document. Word processing programs such as Microsoft Word or Word Perfect are great ways to spot potential problems. However, I cannot emphasize enough the importance of not relying on these programs. Many people type up documents, and then they run them through word processing programs. Once they've done this, and they don't see any obvious errors, they assume that the resume is perfect.

This is why you will want to take the time to proofread your document. . Depending on the type of job you're going for. and you resume may still be tossed in the trash. jobs which offer higher salaries will have higher levels of competition. You will want to explain to the employer why you can be a great asset to their company. If you don't. An example of this would be using "wonder" when "wander" should be used. even if it has proper grammar. Because the word is spelled correctly. In most cases. One good example of this is words that are spelled correctly.Always Proof-read There are a number of errors that web processing programs will not be able to catch. Your goal should be to capture the attention for the employer from the very first paragraph. and even if you're qualified. While there are some things that should be present on all resumes. they may lose interest. Even when your resume is written properly. Your style of writing is just as important as the grammar. Look for mistakes that the word processing program can't detect. one mistake during the interview will kill your chances of success. or when you use "their" when "there" should be used. it is very important for you to use proper English. but in the wrong context. Make your resume exciting. One thing that potential employers hate are resumes that are bland and redundant. most word processing programs can't tell the difference between the two. you will want to have a style of your own. you're not done yet. and it will determine whether or not you will get the job. Importance of Proper English during Job Interview Your job interview is crucially important.

you've already put yourself at a disadvantage. Giving the best answers to these questions will separate you from the other people who are applying for the position.Preparation is The Key Waiting until you get to the interview is too late. who will think that you're not genuine. If they sound scripted. andyou should prepare answers for them. and it is crucial for you to make sure your responses don't sound scripted. . During the interview. Practice giving these responses in the days leading up to the interview. this will leave a bad impression on the interviewer. being prepared for common questions will give you the advantage. you should already have a good idea of the questions that you will be asked. You should write down all these questions in advance. Some of the questions that you will be asked during the interview include: Where do you see yourself in five years? Why do you want to work for us? What separates you from the other people who are applying for this job? If you've been to more than one job interview. While it is impossible for you to know all the questions that you will be asked during the interview. If you haven't thought about what you will say in advance.
