第20篇:申请中如何夸自己

面试回答和推荐信的写作中关于Strength和Weakness是很常见的interview中的题目。其实,选择什么样的strength并无高下之分。招生官其实更看重的是你自我认知的能力,你到底对自己有多了解?你的优势是否和商学院的气质想匹配?你自我认知的这个strength到底是不是你的气场里所传达出来的信息?这些才是招生官真正关心的问题。

当然,你的这些strength还需要用具体的实例来进行backup,不然就只是空洞的说辞。

具体在哪些方面可以来讲述这些strength?下面给出一些可以参考的点,希望对大家有所帮助;大家可以通过这个展开描述:

第21篇:Fit In和Stand Out
今天说下商学院申请的Fit In和Stand Out吧:

对于很多申请国外商学院的申请人来说,评审录取的过程就象一个“黑匣子”。每个学校都会要求申请人提交很多材料,其中都会有多项不同的指标,没有一个学校会指出哪一个因素是最重要的,他们往往只是提到一些笼统的要求。困惑的申请人经常会问这样的问题:这些商学院到底想招什么样的学生呢?

让我们从另外一个角度来回答这个问题,如果你是国外商学院的商学院录取的评审委员,你也许会在1、2个月内看成百上千个申请人的资料,每个人的资料大概都会是又厚又重的文件夹。

作为评审委员,首先你的时间有限,而你必须很快的浏览完每个人的材料;另一方面,你的工作的结果对于商学院的质量也有很重要的意义,所以你对每个申请人材料评估的意见都很重要。申请人就应该抓住评审委员的心理,你的申请应该采取怎样的策略,让评审委员能够快速清楚地抓住关于你的最重要的信息,节省评审委员的评阅时间。同时,你应该降低他的录取决定的风险,增大他的录取决定的可能收益,这样你就能找出一个破译国外商学院评审录取黑匣子的捷径。

Fit In
首先你的申请要FIT IN,也就是说你的背景要和这个学校原来录取的学生基本相似。比如说有大致同样长的工作年限,有差不多一样高的GPA、GMAT分数,有大致接近的兴趣爱好(例:户外活动),申请要“FIT IN”的主要目的在于你向学校表明招收你是不会有太多风险的,因为你和那些已经毕业的学生相差无几。

寻找方法
研究此学校过去三年的学生PROFILE, 证明自己的背景符合典型PFOFILE。可从网站或学校自己的材料中搜寻此类信息,然后在自己的申请材料中表现出自己的背景符合学校的典型标准。因为具备你这样才能的学生不会很多。如果你已经FIT IN了,评审委员要把把你剔出出局就比较难一些,毕竟你和过去已经接受的学生是同一类型的。

2. Stand Out
但是仅仅有FIT IN并不能保证学校一定会录取你,因为很有可能还有很多像你一样和这个学校FIT IN的申请者,所以你必须在众多的申请者中脱颖而出。如何才能使你的申请STAND OUT呢?市场营销中的市场定位法可以作为一个实现此目标的工具。

市场定位指的是一个产品必须建立清晰的,与众不同的, 易懂的,有价值的形象。商学院的申请人的市场定位必须有利于评审委员回答以下问题,这个人到底有什么不同之处,能给学校带来不同的价值?最简单的定位可以用“你在本行业里既拥有传统的行业优势,又无与行业相关的弱点。

有人会问,如果我同时申请很多学校,那么我是不是应该对每个申请的学校都应该采取不同的定位呢?理论上这是可能的,但实际操作起来会很困难,而且很可能会弄巧成拙。所以,应该采取以下的策略把通用定位和具体定位结合起来。

具体定位适用于几个申请人首选的学校,根据每个学校的不同特点贴身定制申请材料,比如说修改个人申明,推荐信等等。“变成一个不同的自己”(当然你精神力要足够强大或者精神要足够分裂)通用定位适用于申请人有一般兴趣的学校,这个通用定位应该是足够广泛,灵活。(用做申请保底用的)

最后谈一谈把你的一些特色贯穿进去,用一个清楚的主题起不同的具体例子,证明自己的定位方向。
以下举几个例子:
1. 热情,有人际感染力
2. 语言天赋
3. 创造性
4. 严密的逻辑分析能力
5. 有冒险精神
6. 组织能力
7. 文化交际能力

最后我要提醒大家不要犯以下这些运用定位的常见错误:
1. 申请的各种材料有互相矛盾之处,不能合起来支持主题。
2. 不够直接、具体,过于笼统、含蓄,不能做到以情动人。
3. 不够可信的编撰。

总之,商学院录取的黑盒子并非不可破解。只要你抓住评审委员的心理,运用恰当的主题定位技巧,你一定可以证明一方面你的背景与学校的要求FIT IN,另一方面你的独特性会给学校带来光彩
