灵活的应聘者往往会把“我”开头的话，变成“你”字打头。例如，面试人说：Would you please say something about yourself？（请你谈谈自己的情况好吗？）应聘者则说：Do you want me to talk about my personal life or to say something about the job？（你想让我谈谈我个人的生活呢，还是与这份工作有关的问题？）这样，你的谈话就把面试人摆了进去。这种谈话的方式所产生的效果是不言而喻的。面试毕竟是面试人与应聘者互相沟通的一种场合，应聘者时常把面试人摆进自己的谈话当中去，自然而然就起到了互相沟通的作用。
1. 能力。当你知道招聘单位目前急于用人时，首先把自己的专长讲足说够，然后顺理成章地得出结论：I think your unit needs a man like me.（我想，贵单位需要象我这样的人才。）用这样的句式，让面试人认为你是站在他们的立场上说话，在替他们的发展考虑问题，于是更容易接受你。陈述自己的任职资格时，可以这么开头：I’m qualified for the job because……（我能胜任这项工作，是因为……）接着陈述理由。当面试人在审视你究竟能不能胜任此职时，参照的标准已不再是他心目中的标准，而是你列举的理由。
2. 业绩。外国公司面试喜欢用事实说话，为了证明你的能力，你可以把过去的经历联系起来，说明你曾经为以前的公司解决过跟现在雇主所面临的类似问题：I explored Shanghai market and sold 50,000 sets in one year.（我开发了上海市场，一年销售出去5万套。）
3. 诚意。某个问题发表完见解之后，可以附带加上一句：I’d like to hear your opinion.（我很想听听你的意见。）这句话表明了你对面试人的尊敬，很容易使他（她）产生亲切感。当面试人在试探你的应聘诚意时，应该及时表态：So far as that is concerned, you must have understood my determination.（谈到这里，您一定已经明白我的决心。）问些与工作内容相关的问题，能表现你对这份工作的兴趣。如：What other responsibilities do you think this job will include? （您觉得这份工作所包含的职责还有哪些？）
用简单直白的语言表现最具魅力的自我，才是中英文面试的至高境界。习惯于堆砌华丽词藻的很多人恨不得在面试中用大气磅礴的英文演讲征服面试官，其实又犯了舍本逐末的错误。不要不屑于用there be 句型，不要不屑于用第一人称，不要想着那些一辈子也用不上几次的虚拟语气、倒装句和长词冗句，如果你能保证说英文如行云流水那么你尽情用，但万一紧张得忘了词怎么办？万一面试官和你展开辩论怎么办？用平实的语言直切正题是最讨巧的方式。
