英文简历范文写作的注意问题

2017-09-13

  英文语法和句式上的问题略过,那属于英文写作。这里只说文字设计(typography),虽然高级的文字设计和内容从来密不可分。

  简历是大多数人实践文字设计的最常见载体。人人都希望简历给人留下好印象,因此或多或少会告诫自己「注意排版」。问题在于具体注意些什么。以下十条是最基本的规则,若能做到,你的英文简历已经比 90% 的中国人(包括英文系学生)的规范美观了。

  一、标点符号一律使用半角。

  二、逗号、句号、分号、冒号、感叹号、问号和它们后面的字符之间必须留一个半角空格。

  错误:hi,i‘m an entrepreneur.can you make this app for me for free?because,you know,i have this brilliant idea but i don’t know how to code.

  正确:hi, i‘m an entrepreneur. can you make this app for me for free? because, you know, i have this brilliant idea but i don’t know how to code.

  三、逗号、句号、分号、冒号、感叹号、问号和它们前面的字符之间不可留任何空格。

  错误:i think our current version is too skeuomorphic ,why don‘t we ,uh ,make it flatter so that it looks more metro-ish?

  正确:i think our current version is too skeuomorphic, why don’t we, uh, make it flatter so that it looks more metro-ish?

  四、将长串数字分开写,降低辨识的难度。

  错误:13927396856

  正确:139 2739 6856 或 139-2739-6856

  五、书名、杂志名、电影名、音乐专辑名、英文中出现的外文(包括拼音,人名除外)用斜体。

  错误:in XX, i created this amazing service during my internship at playboy which is totally lbs avant la lettre.

  正确:in XX, i created this amazing service during my internship at playboy which is totally lbs avant la lettre.

  六、对于电话区号应用不同的符号区分。

  错误:+86-139-2739-6856

  正确:(86) 139 2739 6856 或 (86) 139-2739-6856

  七、对于有序列表,应采用「阿拉伯数字 + 英文句点 + 半角空格」的方式。

  错误:

  three words i hate:

  1.innovation.

  2, leverage.

  3 synergy.

  正确:

  three words i hate:

  1. innovation.

  2. leverage.

  3. synergy.

  八、括号弧线外要留空格,弧线内不要。

  错误:byte press(née tangcha ) is the best chinese-language ebook app. period.

  正确:byte press (née tangcha) is the best chinese-language ebook app. period.

  但同一个单词内的括号例外:

  错误:after the linguistic turn, people are getting addicted to pretentious bracketed words such as ‘(ex) plain (ed)’.

  正确:after the linguistic turn, people are getting addicted to pretentious bracketed words such as ‘(ex)plain(ed)’.

  九、用弯引号,不要用直(的弯)引号。

  错误:“bazinga!” ‘you are pwned!’

  正确:“bazinga!” ‘you are pwned!’

  十、正确使用各种短横:em dash (—) 是破折号,en dash (–) 用来连接年份、时间,是「到」的意思,hyphen (-) 是连字符。

  错误:glenn gould (1932-1982) is probably my one and only hero - the person who taught me to think differently well before steve jobs.

  正确:glenn gould (1932–1982) is probably my one and only hero — the person who taught me to think differently well before steve jobs.

  注意:

  1. 若写作时用两个 hyphen (--) 代替破折号,word 等文书处理软件会自动将其转为 em dash。有监于 em dash 输入不便(mac 上是 shift + option + -),这也是英文写作通用的替代法。

  2. 破折号(em dash)两端可各留一半角空格,亦可不留。此乃英美习惯之不同,无对错之分。惟请在同一份简历中保持统一。
