大家可能會覺得看書只有使用一個感官 – 眼晴。但其實不只，因為我們在看書時，腦中，甚至有時候不自覺的，嘴巴會唸出讀過的字。而如果可以讀，對自己來說，有興趣的書籍，會更有幫助。建議可以從讀小說開始，因為這類書籍的情境與對話相較的多，用詞也不會太過技術性，甚至還可以發揮想像，讓自己加深印象。
身邊沒有人講英文，是一件比較難解決的事，總不可能為了講英文，把朋友家人都換到。Glints建議可以跟一些也想進步學英文的朋友，一起創立一個 [ 說英文的聚會 ] ，以一週一次，或是看大家的時間為期，內容自己選擇。在聚會中，大家都只能使用英文來對話。如此一來，就製造了多講英文的機會。
Tell me about yourself.
Hello, my name is Michael. I began my career in retail management, but 3 years ago, I took a course to become a front-end software engineer. I’ve always been interested and skilled at creating something from scratch. My experience successfully helped me with organizing my thoughts logically, and I’ve been building a career as a front-end software engineer ever since.
Hello, my name is Michael. I have a wonderful family with my father and my mother, and a little brother. We also have a dog, he’s very cute. I went to school in Taipei for my entire life, and graduated long time ago. I worked for 3 years in retail, then I wanted to do something else, and make more money, so I became a front-end engineer for 2 years.
What challenges have you faced? How did you handle them?
你是怎麼面對的？面試時，面試官會利用這個問題，來考驗你的邏輯。要讓面試官知道你能發現問題、設計解決方案、提出完善計畫。 以下是正確與錯誤的回答範例 ：
In my previous job, I noticed that there is an anomaly in the performance of our website. I quickly realized that it was due to a CTA link misplacement. I came up with two solutions: completely remove the CTA or use a redirection landing page to be able to continue tracking website traffic. After discussion with the team, we decided to go with the second option, which results in a 15% increase in website traffic in the end.
After this incident, I suggested my manager to implement a two-step QA process. Since then, we have never seen any problems like that again.
When I was working at my previous job, found out there is a problem with the website I worked on. It was the CTA not working. I suggested to make another landing page, and my team agreed. So we spent more time to create another landing page to cover for the CTA traffic, so we can keep tracking numbers. It was really helpful in the end.
But after that, we had to be more careful and asked the QA team to help us double check, so this issue does not happen again.
What are your strengths and weaknesses?
優缺點的面試問題也是公司非常看重的地方，而面試官之所以會問「 優缺點 」的原因，是他們要知道公司是否能從你身上獲得他們所需要的，以及公司未來可能會要輔助你哪方面的需求。以下是正確與錯誤的回答範例：
I believe leadership is my one of my top strengths. During my time as a front-end software team lead, I successfully merged two teams, constructed and conducted a training session for the team members, making sure everyone is confident with the new role their were heading into. The new team bought great success in the first month, bringing engagement rate for the for our website up by 5%.
My weakness is that I am an idealist. Every time I complete a project, I tend to think that it could be better. Although it already received a lot of complements. For this reason, I overwork myself quite a lot, and feels tired from time to time. I have started to fix this problem by receiving assistance from my team members, I have already made good progress, and will continue to do so.
My strength is I am a good leader. I helped merge two teams in my previous company, and team members all like each other and work fine with each other, too. They have showed great promises, and I am very proud of them and of what I have done.
My weakness is that I like everything to be perfect. So when one thing is done, I always have to spend extra time to double check the work. If it is not perfect from my opinion, I will ask the team to improve it and we do it together. I have tried to let go of this, but it is hard, I just want to see things perfectly completed.

Why did you leave your last job?
First of all, my former company’s management believes that the success of operations are based on effectiveness, which I absolutely agree with. However, from a cultural perspective, to maintain a certain level of effectiveness, I think it should be based on the happiness of the employees. So made a difficult decision to leave the company to go on a search this kind of environment. From your company’s culture, I can see that this is also something you care about very much, that’s why I was very eager to meet with you.
I left my previous company because the boss thinks that only hardworking can bring success for the company. I disagree with him, and I think it will be better if the employees can be happy working there. So I am trying to find somewhere that have the same mindset as me. Then I found your company, and from looking at your company culture, I think you care about that a lot, too.

What is your biggest achievement during your career?
In my former company, there was an opportunity to speak for a presentation, on the construction of the logic behind our website, for the entire company and VIP customers, in a 3-hour seminar. I fought for and got the opportunity to represent the front-end engineering department.
I had to prepare for a 45-minute presentation. At that time, my task was not only to investigate the e-commerce market, but also to condense a large amount of information in just 35 minutes, because I was asked to reserve 10 minutes for questions and answers.
I believed that it was a good opportunity for the audience to think outside the framework, so I planned for the audience to participate in the presentation: audience interaction, interesting photos and videos, and accurate data. To let the audience fully understand my point of view, I chose a creative format, which turned the audience into a part of my presentation, maximizing the interaction.
My department received great feedback and evaluation, and were invited by our VIP customers to give another presentation at their coming annual conference. In addition, the presentation was also written into a report for the company’s reference. This is definitely one of my greatest achievements.
My greatest achievement is that I spoke at a seminar for our company and our VIP customers. The presentation went really well, everyone was happy with the outcome. I hoped they learned a lot from the presentation because I really put a lot of work into it.
And because it went so well, our boss was really happy and he praised my department in front of the whole company. We were also asked to go speak at other companies, too.

What are your personal interests/hobbies outside of work?
One of my hobbies is jogging. It is something that I do 3-4 times a week. When I’m jogging, I have clear goal to reach, and for that reason, my mind becomes extra clear. Some of my best work-related ideas actually came to me when I was jogging.
I believe my hobby will help me as a front-end software engineer because on a day-to-day basis, I have to face many complex situations. With a clear mind, I will be able to construct efficient ways to resolve issues.
I love to jog. I spend a lot of time doing it. I am also looking for other hobbies but currently nothing else has interests me like jogging does. I think it feels good after you jog, its like taking a break from work and life, and clear your mind.
I think this helps me with my job because we are only human. Once awhile we need to take a break from the difficulties and learn to enjoy ourselves, so we can be recharged to work again.
Why did you want to join our company?
這一題，很多時候是由老闆親自發問，尤其是在新創公司。為這一題的原因是有兩個，1. 他們想要知道，你能不能成為願意跟公司一起奮鬥的一員。2. 他們想要知道，你對公司了解到什麼程度。以下是正確與錯誤的回答範例：
The reason why I want to join you is for your touching and admirable mission and culture.
I have personally experienced the pain-point that you mentioned during our conversation. It was really a difficult time, I faced the same thing in my two previous job. I wish to completely eliminate this problem for all the job seekers.
The cultures and mission at your company fits the description with my personal attitude. I believe your company is heading to the right direction, and will soon bring great success in this matter. This is also why I would love to be part of the contribution.
The reason why I want to join you is because I like what you are doing.
I also needed help like this back then, but there were nothing like that. It was very sad and hard for me, if you existed back then, I would be so much happier. I want to make that happen for many others.
Also, I think are you definitely doing the right thing, although, it will be very hard to achieve. I want to give it a try because it is worthwhile.
What do you think about overtime?
I think it’s a good thing to be able to work wholeheartedly. I am also the kind of people that continue to strike for improvement and creating values. However, regarding overtime, I hope to understand the company’s overtime status and the reasons for overtime.
I think it is good to work very hard for something that you believe in. So if I believe in what the company is doing, then I think working overtime is totally fine. However, sometimes, I will have to be with my families, so I might not be able to always do that.
