The coming of March also means that the spring recruitment of major companies has gradually begun.
Whether you are a newcomer in the workplace who is about to graduate, or a professional acquaintance looking to start a new picture, you have to face a series of online applications, written examinations and interviews.
If you are already looking for a job, you should have noticed that many companies have clearly marked the requirements for English in their recruitment information, not only for levels 4 and 6, and some even require relatively small English tests such as IELTS, TOEFL, BEC, etc. Scores.
This means that the English is not up to the standard, and you may not even have to apply online.
If you are facing such a situation, you can take a look:
Directly reach the fourth level of the university with zero basic English [Upgraded version of listening and speaking, follow-up class], poke me to listen >>
Directly to the sixth level of the university with zero foundation of English [Upgraded version of listening and speaking, follow-up class], poke me to listen >>
The investigation of English did not end there. In the written test stage, not only major foreign companies, but also major banks and companies involved in foreign trade will test the interviewer’s English proficiency. Not to mention the next English interview.
In fact, it is not that the recruitment departments of various companies deliberately embarrass us, nor that everyone who does not hold various English certificates is without strength. It’s just because in enterprises, the ability to communicate and communicate in an international language such as English is very important to us and to enterprises in the context of the era of full globalization.
Rakuten, the company that pioneered the well-known online market in Japan, once implemented a strategy of “Englishnization” in the company. That is, all employees are required to reach a certain score standard in English within the specified time and be able to communicate in English in the company. Employees who fail to meet the standards will be assigned to the yellow and red warning zones and face demotion or even expulsion.
At the beginning, the employees did not understand this. However, in order to maintain their career and status, they all learned English through various online and offline channels to improve their professional English application skills. From the beginning of a large number of employees failing English, the embarrassment of spending 4 hours in an English meeting, to the end that over 90% of employees’ TOEIC English scores reached the company’s requirements, and employees all over the world realized barrier-free communication. Lotte Corporation still performed outstandingly in the context of Japan’s large-scale economic downturn. Such a business miracle was written into the textbooks of Harvard Business School. The employees with excellent English performance in the company also gained an international perspective and a salary increase.
Not only in Japanese companies, but many elders who have worked for many years have also said that they did not think that at first, but now they are increasingly discovering the importance of English in the workplace. When you reach a certain position and need to communicate with more senior executives and customers, speaking a good foreign language can really bring you more promotion opportunities and faster promotion speed. But because I didn’t have good learning resources back then, I can only watch people who are much younger than me rise up a little bit.
In fact, even if there is no foundation in English, it does not mean that there is no chance to learn English well. Moreover, with such advanced technology, we don’t even have to go to the classroom to learn, and we can get a lot of learning resources from the Internet. As long as we have a learning heart, whether it is to start learning from the basics with patience for many years, or to quickly improve our abilities under the leadership of some good online teachers, it is an improvement.
I believe that everyone can get a satisfactory job, salary and position in the future.
