面试小技巧

9 Dec

美国研究生申请面试注意事项:

一、语速适中切忌对准备过的问题,语速过快,而对生疏的问题结结巴巴,造成前后差别很大,给面试官留下作弊的印象。同时,如果语速过快也会带动面试官语速过快,很容易出现听不懂的情况。

二、自信。面试官希望看到你能胸有成竹,充满自信。另外,不用太紧张,只用把面试官当作是一个朋友,把面试当作是一个交流沟通、展示自我的机会。

三、真诚。尽可能地表达自己的心声,不要说一些敷衍了事的话,面试官一般都希望每个学生的想法都是独特的,而不是千篇一律的。

四、主动。主动的原则很重要,尽可能地在面试中能处于主导的地位,而不是被动地接受提问,尽可能地将面试的话题引向你擅长的方向,也可以说一些与学术无关但又很独特的东西。这样,才能给面试官留下深刻的印象。

五、简洁。简洁、切中要害,尽量不要说一些废话。

六、避免谈论政治、宗教等敏感话题。

七、避免在电话中和面试官进行争辩,在提出自己的观点的同时,要尊重对方的观点。

Answer to Yesterday’s interview question

6 Dec

since A said “If I don’t know, B doesn’t know either”, the day can’t be 2 or 7 because the others all have been repeated in different months. So it can’t be month 6 and 12.

Then B said “I didn’t know until I heard what A said”, which means the day can’t be 5 because it’s repeated in month 3 and month 9. The rest date is 3.4; 3.8; 9.1

After that, A said “Now I know”. It can’t be determined if it’s month 3, so it’s month 9, which means it’s Sep. 1.

A very interesting interview question

5 Dec

A and B have the same professor David. Mr. David’s birthday is Month X Day Y. Both A and B know his birthday is one of the following 10 dates. David tells the value of X to A and the value of Y to B. Then he asks if they know when is his birthday.

Date:

3.4; 3.5; 3.8

6.4; 6.7

9.1; 9.5

12.1; 12.2; 12.8

A: If I don’t know, then B doesn’t know either.

B: I didn’t know until I heard what A said.

A: Now, I know.

Can you guess when is David’s birthday?
