廢老移民亂記 – 入 EOI 教學

朋友圈中, 有好幾位都有join到Facebook上的Global Talent Independent谷(本人沒有), 而近日佢地都話留意到唔少applicant入GTI 既 EOI被DHA rejected, 個人覺得被DHA reject主要有兩個重要原因: 其一是applicant本身唔夠professional或international exposures/recognitions, 其二就係英文表達能力; 係呢道我唔係想講applicant英文唔好, 而好多時比較technical既朋友都係唔識用plain vanilla去present自己既speciality及professional qualification.

既然都係想幫下自己香港人, 咁我又即管分享下我自己既睇法啦.

首先applicant要先清晰知道您屬於那一個global talent既domain, 就好似我自己咁, 基本上我既portfolio 係overlapped 3個唔同既domains, 分別係InfoSec, Fintech及ICT, 而當您入application時要決定您自己既backgound favour用邊一個domain入紙. 更重要既係邊一個professional body可能幫到您做assessment或nomination.

基於我自己本身已經係ACS既old seafood(senior member)而好自然用ICT呢個行頭入application比較favour, 所以我就放棄佐fintech及InfoSec. 但唔代表我個EOI唔提自己有呢兩個specialities.

做功課

如果講做功課, 我會直接D講係revisit及rewrite您自己份CV一次, 首先要知自己有乜野讀書既qualifications, professional memberships, professional certifications, professional training records等等都shortlist出黎.

而每一張professional certification及membership都要係最up to date既electrionic copy. (就自己黎講我就試過戇膠膠地交出一張out-dated既ISACA cert.後就收到request for clarifications)

另外如果您好似我咁係某D professional body既chapter leaders, 記得記得要有晒supporting(例如 appointment letters)

Professional body 既 membership都應該唔使我多講, 自己應該識做啦 (i.e. IEEE, HKCS, ACS etc)

Spouse既professional其實都唔好放過, 資料有多無少. 如果您既spouse本身都係GTI既target industry既從業員, 都可以係EOI入面順帶一提, 反正呢件事係既定事實, 而又有機會可以加分. why not ?

寫Draft

個draft不外是張自己個portfolio用簡單英文寫出, 我當年係澳洲讀書時, lecturer有提示過最好既General English Communications係用Years 11既水準, Years 11即香港中五左右, 而且唔好有jargons. 再白D就係唔好用埋D扮晒英文勁既字句. plain vanilla才是王道.

個draft不外乎分開幾個部份, 第一部份我會自己介紹一下自已, 就好似自己讀邊間大學, 乜野facility及自己既professional qualifications.例子如下:

I was the Vice President of  xxx, xxx Hong Kong Chapter between 9999 & 9999, was the Vice President of xxx, xxxx Hong Kong Chapter between  9999 & 9999, was the Chairman, xxx, xxxx Hong Kong Chapter between 9999 & 9999. I am a xxx holder, a holder of xxx Qualification, a full member of the Australian Computer Society, Full member of Hong Kong Computer Society.

再黎就可以分段落寫工作經驗, 但要清楚講明公司backgound及您個role係做乜野, 好多時D人寫自己個工作經驗時, 都寫好多只有佢自己知既野, 外行人根本就唔知佢想講乜, 所以要好清楚交代. 就睇下我個sample啦.

I was the Vice President, xxx of xxx between 9999 & 9999, a finTech unicorn on payment automation, blessed by immediate past PM(2010 - 2016)of the United Kingdom, David William Donald Cameron.  During my service, I was responsible for the IT operation across the globe, a prime owner of the Business Continuity Plan (IT).

再黎就寫下自己既international explosure及collaborations, 呢部份我唔多方便比template/sample大家reference, 大家自己領悟一下啦.

最後就可以補充一下spouse既資料, 例如佢乜野學位, 乜野subject同埋係咪English as media of instruction等, 同埋您既spouse係咪payroll都已經over Fair Work high income threshold (FWHIT) 都值得一提.

搵人review您份draft

如果可以既話, 搵一個您信得過而英文達到Years 11水準既朋友做proof reading及執grammer, 因為一般人都覺得自己寫乜都係好好從來唔review, 所以搵到人幫手review係一件好delightful既事.

如果信得過我而又想我幫您睇+執, 可以PM我
