How to Become a Key Opinion Leader in the Digital World

MESSAGING

A Key Opinion Leader.

“What’s that?” you ask.

“A Key Opinion Leader is a person who successfully combines expertise and passion, both online and off”
– Sean Stephens

A mainstay in the pharmaceutical and life sciences fields, the concept of Key Opinion Leader, or ‘KOL’, has infiltrated digital spaces as an adjunct to the popular, and perhaps cliché, concept of ‘Thought Leader’.

What makes a Key Opinion Leader? In the medical field, a Key Opinion Leader is a person with long-standing respect, who builds their influence and reputation by speaking at conferences, developing new theories, being published and re-quoted in journals, popular press, and by others who possess considerable influence. A KOL is a person who other professionals look to for answers and guidance because they have distinguished themselves by pushing the boundaries of their field.

Pharmaceutical marketing teams look for KOL’s to act as product advocates – someone who will give their ‘stamp of approval’ on the efficacy and effectiveness of the product. As advocates for the drug brand, KOLs are used to generate increased revenue by capitalizing on their popularity.

Within the realm of digital media and marketing, a KOL possesses social, rather than purely academic, influence. This social variant of a KOL is open to regular, everyday people who can become influential to their peers or “following”.

Out of our discussion with two real-life Key Opinion Leaders in the digital world, Treefrog Inc. CEO Sean Stephens, and Perfect Community Manager and local entrepreneur Lucas Chang, we’ve assessed how both content and social media can help launch and support your KOL career.

Get Social

“It’s critical to be involved and accessible.”

Sean Stephens and Lucas Chang both agreed that Key Opinion Leaders don’t necessarily need to be high profile, but they do need to get out there and be social.

If you are interested in becoming a KOL, it is critical that you make yourself accessible to your community, both in person and online. It is also important that you ensure to leave a positive impact on those you encounter, making your followers feel valued, heard, and more informed after speaking to or hearing from you.

To accomplish this, take advantage of various speaking opportunities and attend conferences in your field of expertise. Afterward, make time to shake hands, exchange contact information with those who may present further opportunities to you, and join in for pictures. The more you are seen, the more you will become recognizable and established.

Another key tip is to be engaging and active on various social media platforms. Social media will allow you to access a wider audience, as well as to spread your message instantly. By leveraging social media, your material has greater potential to be shared, liked, and commented on.

You should also consider pitching interview topics with both local and national media, increasing your platform’s visibility. Not only will producing this material build your resume, but it will also provide documented proof of your ability to lead and educate, establishing a more concrete reputation.

Make Strategic Connections

“In order to develop an opinion that isn’t just fluff, you have to surround yourself with people who are also equally engaged in the same material as you.” 

Using the analogy of iron sharpening iron, Sean Stephens stressed the importance of surrounding yourself with people who are passionate about the same material as you; yet don’t necessarily share your same exact opinion. Stephens went on to explain that Key Opinion Leaders gain credibility when they engage with other leaders and not only express their personal opinions, but also actively listen and learn.

Social media can significantly support these types of connections as social websites like Facebook contain customizable group and event pages where meetings can be set up, conferences can be advertised, and discussions can be had.

While Lucas Chang reminded us that there is still a lot of value in face-to-face interaction, social media now plays a huge role in guiding people to an actual in-person meet. Think about it. When you read a book or article that genuinely interests you, you are more likely to reach out to the author, through either social media or email. Once an online relationship is fostered, you are then more apt, (and likely more comfortable) to meet and interact with that person in real life.

Using social media as a tool, there are limited boundaries with whom you can connect with online and in person. Why not give it a try?

Become A Specialized Expert

“A KOL is a person who successfully combines expertise and passion.” 

By attending local events and networking, you can begin to build your personal brand and reputation. However, Sean Stephens reminded us that the social persona of a true Key Opinion Leader is only valuable if based on validated expertise.

KOL’s must responsibly invest in themselves, as well as their area of interest, consistently working to develop their opinion by further investigating the subject. KOL’s can become experts through online research, meeting with others who are interested in their same field, and through receiving accreditation.

Above all, creating quality publishable content will position your brand as reputable. Experts become known when their novels, theories, and opinions are published on websites or in credible magazines, newspapers, and journals. Without a foundation of content, your ‘expertise’ will be seen as just talk.

 

Be Consistent & Present

“Always go to the things you say you’re going to go to.” 

Sean Stephens expressed that one of the most valuable things a KOL can be is consistent and therefore reliable. He stressed that absence and lateness do not go unnoticed and that being considered inconsistent can ruin a reputation. Stephens also claims that there’s a notable difference between being present and truly having a presence both in person and online.

In a digital era, online presences can either make or break a Key Opinion Leader. When a person chooses to support a social media account by following and engaging with it, that person is essentially saying, “I like what this page has to offer me” and “I’d like to see more”. However, when media platforms are neglected, or if the posts do not reflect the messaging a follower initially followed that page for, that person is likely to un-follow and disengage with the account.

If you commit to having a social media page, be sure that you are able to set ample time aside to support that page, making frequent, appropriate, and applicable updates, which will keep your audience interested.

When strategized correctly, social media can launch your brand towards success, but when not executed well, these failed campaigns can damage your reputation.

Be Passionate

“When you can tell that someone is passionate, whether it be quietly passionate, or overtly passionate, you want to hear more about what they have to say.” 

While anyone can educate themselves on any topic, especially in a digital era, both Sean Stephens and Lucas Chang believe that passion is what sets regular experts and Key Opinion Leaders apart. When a speaker is truly passionate, their level of excitement will naturally transfer to their spectators, leaving a lasting impact.

To build one’s passion into a credible opinion, you must allow yourself to continuously learn and rediscover the meaning behind your passion as it grows. In a technology-obsessed world that is constantly changing, a KOL must be adaptable, finding new ways to keep their message interesting, informative, and up-to-date.

One of the most powerful ways to express passion is through open, genuine, and relatable online posts. Key Opinion Leaders can demonstrate love for their specialty by writing exciting articles about new finds in their field, sharing promotional material for related events on Facebook, posting pictures of themselves in action on Instagram, and more. When audiences physically can see that a Key Opinion Leader is consistently engaging with their area of interest, that person’s passion becomes believable.

 

Be Practical

“Any person can come up with an idea, but a majority of people never execute those ideas.”

Lucas Chang explained that aspiring KOL’s must pick a specialty that they are naturally passionate about, and then must find a way to make their dream practical. Chang claimed that most people fail in becoming a KOL when they are full of ideas and yet are unable to make their dream a tangible reality.

However, with incredible advances in technology, becoming a Key Opinion Leader has never more achievable. Social media sites are built with the intent to connect people to the things and people they find interesting, expediting one’s ability to gain momentum and success.

In the past, Key Opinion Leaders relied on content alone, to build a reputation of expertise. However, the value of printing words in a book is fading. Content now needs to be supported by the internet, making the sharing of content practical and accessible to more people.

It is then opportune for potential Key Opinion Leaders to leverage social media to support their written work, preventing incredible ideas from just being stored and ignored on a dusty bookshelf. You never know, your message might even go viral.

 

It is not enough to simply want to become a known expert; you must also be willing to put in the work to make it happen.

Too busy to do it alone?

Sunday

Sunday! Is it a lovely day not to sleep over the morning?

I really do enjoy my Saturday night drinking a bit with close ones. But sorry, 12am is my limit for drinking and hanging out. Reason? Enjoy my Sunday morning in a coffee shop, read my books, review what I have done, think about what I’m gonna do next. It’s such a quiet time to be myself, to calm down and reflect myself after a whole hectic week feeling tired and lost in directions.

Sometime we easily get on the rail then slip so fast, forget what we really want.

Now, slow down. Get on the right track!

Minimalism

Watching this one maybe give you a bit guideline to be more happier or at least to know what the growing minimalism is.

This documentary explains very much how I see myself being so different from people around me: Who always find ways to simplify things, stop the drama, materialism and have genuine relationships to live a life of purpose.

Yay! Early promotion

Who says Monday is blue! For me, at least this Monday is a great day. I had a feedback meeting with my boss and HR and they congratulated me on my early promotion. Early promotion, it’s not a common thing in Japanese company when everything is set step by step.

When I just started with the current company, I set my target: Jump 2 levels as fast as possible. Some senior coworkers told me that it’s almost impossible and difficult to achieve.

I just think:

  1. How can they assess everyone has the same working ability. There are some guys who is really suck and some guys who stand out with skills, languages and creative.
  2. The evaluation is based on performance. So as long as we can show how we give the best result, we can convince them to give us exception.

And yes! I did get early promotion, earlier than other guys, same level with some seniors.

Hey guys, especially young people:

  1.  Believe in yourself, work our best and set high target.
  2. Don’t trust senior or older 100%, it’s a must and respectful to listen to them, but give some judgement if their opinion is true or just black/white depend on situation.
  3. Work hard, be smart, but don’t keep yourself in silence, speak up your opinions, show them what you have done, it’s not about showing off, it’s all about recognition.

Happiness is all in your mind

Our mind is like a balloon blowing in the air and it’s affected by so many external circumstances.

So to be happy regardless of the outside. we should:

  • Stop outsourcing out happiness/unhappiness
  • Actively cultivate a source of peace and happiness coming from our inside.

It’s about how we respond to external circumstances, and the best way is to practise mediation, a mental action of concentrating on a peaceful positive state of mind.

Let’s do meditation at least 10 minutes/day. Wish you happiness in your mind.

2017, keep studying and fighting for what you love

I think in this modern era, everything is changing so fast, especially how we see, manage and work in this world. And to keep ourself updated with the latest trends/technology/knowledge, the traditional teaching methods aren’t really effective and they cost us a lot. So Online studying platforms are the trend now, everyone can study what they’re really interested in, by a very convenient and affordable one. In my experience studying on Udemy over 1 month, Udemy is still the best until now. Affordable cost, diverse course but experienced teachers and up-to-date knowledge.

Only 12 hours left to take any course you want with only $10. In 2017, let’s study and do what you really want. #udemy #thisyearIwill

2017: Turn everything to motivate you

Motivation is a really important thing to get you go further. there are kind of things to motivate you like:

  • Travel to somewhere you always want to
  • Get a house owned by your name
  • Work for yourself, no worry about boss and time checking
  • Move to a city
  • Financial freedom

Even like Gatsy, his dream girl is the biggest motivation. So do some of us.

But those are some kind of big targets and we need long stable run to achieve. meanwhile, so many things happen every single day (negative included like broke up with bf/gf, accident, bad mood, boss scold, some failure in career, etc). We all admit that. Somehow many people stopped trying because of not overcoming these life obstacles.

So I think that the Optimism is really important to keep us head up and keep moving forward to every goals.

An example: A glass with water at the halfway point. The optimist is said to see the glass as half full and the pessimist sees the glass as half empty.

But life is not that glass which still has half full. Sometime, we can only feel like life is a glass without any drop of water… and I know it’s really suck… terribly.

Based on my experience, there were times I thought how life would get better. But I tried to comfort and gave another shot. Although I still consider myself of being successful in career now but still achieve many things that a boy in a small town could never imagined.

Today, I unluckily lost my wallets, no worry about money cause I can earn it back but all my important cards like ID, driver license, etc. they are all lost. And you know you don’t feel good when it happened on your first day of new year. Then I calm my mind… okay, it’s all, I know replacement will waste my time a lot and get me headache with some kind of documents but it’s still a chance to:

  • Get new ID card made by PET material with new photo (since the current photo is 10yo ago, and no one think it’s me)
  • Time to go back and replace my passport since I usually get denied because the current passport got trouble with the code scanning. I guess one time It got wet. They advice me to replace it for less trouble next times.
  • One-two days off, no work, no factory visit. phew (feeling bad but good haha)
  • The document to replace motorbike driver license is so complicated (When it come to something that I have to deal with the local government, I hate it) so I take it as a motivation to work harder, get rid of going around the city by motorbike, willing to pay for taxi, Uber and Grab.

Yup! Motivation! Motivation. You can turn it to a motivation that drive you to work smarter and harder.

This is my sharing that I wish you can turn everything to motivation and achieve your goals in 2017.

Happy New Year!

Bye 2016, Hi 2017

Qua hôm nay là dù chưa tới sinh nhật tiếp theo nhưng ai sinh năm 1991 vẫn sẽ bị tính là 26. Rồi bắt đầu nhích về hướng cột 30.

Mấy đứa tuổi 25 dễ bị “ẩm ương” lắm vì già chưa đến nỗi già, sự ổn định chưa đặt nặng lắm nhưng trẻ thì cũng không còn trẻ trâu như tuổi 20 để thích làm đại cái gì thì làm.

Công việc đã bắt đầu bằng thời gian mỗi sáng lăn trong chăn rồi gáng chui ra khỏi giường, mắt nhấm mắt mở mỗi buổi sáng tới công ty rồi tối lại chui về chuồng. Không như tuổi 20, thích là bùng tiết, theo đuổi điều mình muốn trải nghiệm. Mà cũng không giống tuổi 30, kinh nghiệm chưa quá sâu nhưng cũng thấm thía được mặt nào công việc của cuộc sống, và càng hiểu rõ hơn công việc, môi trường và bản thân mình thật sự muốn gì. Rồi tự hỏi niềm đam mê dữ dội ở tuổi 20 có còn đó và vẫn đủ để cháy với công việc khi chạm tới tuổi 30. Và dù sao, lưng chừng của tuổi 20s thì dặn mình vẫn có thể thử, vấp, nhận ra bài học và đứng vững hơn. Chỉ là có chọn lọc và phát quyết tâm hơn.

Chuyện tình cảm thì sự bấp bênh cũng không chừa độ tuổi nào. Nhưng nếu vẫn chưa thành cho một mối quan hệ (một lần nữa) thì cũng là một bài học tốt để nhận ra cái sai, thiếu sót và biết tập trung vào giá trị cốt lỗi thật sự. Không như tuổi 20, thích thì nhích, mà giờ là sự suy nghĩ cần người có thể chia sẻ sâu và hiểu nhau, mà cùng thúc cùng đẩy nhau và cả sự xoa dịu, an ủi khi mệt mỏi. Thấm thía hơn là biết rằng dù bạn bè, người yêu một thời gian sau vì một lí do nào đó mà mỉm cười không còn gặp lại thì vẫn biết rằng gia đình mình, ba mẹ, anh chị em vẫn là cái nền vững chắc sẵn sàng hỗ trợ ít nhất về mặt tinh thần cho chính mình.

Cái tuổi nó không thể đánh giá một con người nhưng cũng là một cái mốc tham khảo để mình suy nghĩ, hướng về bản thân. Chứ sự vui vẻ, tự tin, lạc quan và nhiệt huyết thì nằm ở cách mỗi người nghiệm và giữ nó như thế nào. Giống như bác người Nhật ở công ty, trên 70 rồi mà lạc quan, vui vẻ lắm, gặp ai cũng ra rả chọc và cười, nên cứ mãi nghĩ bác quá lắm 50.

Chúc mừng một năm 2016 nhiều trải nghiệm, học hỏi.
Chào mừng một năm 2017 nhiều hơn về chiều sâu với sự hứng khởi.

15 things successful people do over holiday breaks

We’re hard working and achieved something significant. Yes! and we do need some vacation to recharge energy to give another big shot. But how to have a great trip and be fully ready to get back to work with exciting mood.

I found out this article and good for you to read:

1. They have a plan

“Successful people plan ahead when a holiday break is approaching, because they recognize that it’s a rare opportunity to enjoy well-earned leisure time,” Taylor says. “Even if the plan is to kick back, they usually have in mind certain activities, such as visiting with family or friends.”

2. They compartmentalize

Don’t ruin your break by overworking yourself. If you need to get stuff done, there’s a way to handle it without dragging down the rest of your time off. “If work needs to get done, assign a period during the day or the break to attend to it,” Taylor says.

3. They set boundaries

“Successful professionals let others know when and how they can be reached, so they can truly recharge,” Taylor says. “Setting a day and time during the week allows you to get a lot accomplished in an efficient way.” So make sure to set up an “out of office” email.

4. They get organized before they leave

It can be hard to relax on break if you’ve left your work in a state of disarray. “Tying up loose ends mitigates chaos and projects falling through the cracks by the time you return,” Taylor says.

5. They assign someone to fill in

“You may not have the luxury of literally handing over your projects to a staff member, but savvy professionals will at least have a contact available who can reach them in an emergency,” Taylor says.

6. They set limits

Sometimes, you just have to say “no” to things on break. “Depending on the status of your work and latitude in your position, you may sometimes have to say, ‘No,’ albeit diplomatically, when asked for things that can wait,” Taylor says. “If that’s been a challenge for you in the past, this is an opportunity to grow and feel more empowered in your work life.”

7. They unwind

Successful people try to detach themselves from their cell phones, Taylor says. It will help you unwind and relax.

8. They visit family and friends

There’s no place like home for the holidays. “There may be other times of the year when you have time off and those you care about aren’t available,” Taylor says. “But this is prime time for reconnecting with your family and friends; they likely have some down time, too.”

9. They allow for some slack

At the end of the day, breaks are meant to be relaxing. Don’t overbook yourself. “If you book yourself solid with activities during your time off, you may feel pressure, which is counterproductive,” Taylor told Business Insider.

10. They plan quick getaways or staycations

Full-fledged vacations can be amazing, enriching experiences, but a lot of holiday travel can also be rather draining. Taylor notes that successful people realize that low-key getaways and staycations can be just as fun during breaks.

11. They exercise

Don’t make excuses. Odds are, you’re downing a few more candy canes than usual over break, so it’s more crucial than ever that you keep up your exercise routine. “Skipping workouts over the holidays can make you feel like you’re dragging, and you want to capitalize on valued time off by feeling your best mentally and physically,” Taylor says.

12. They engage in their passions

Getting involved in your favorite hobby or pastime, whether it’s music, sports, art, reading, or other endeavors, gives you a broader and healthier perspective on life,” Taylor says. “It also makes you a more interesting person in and outside of work.”

13. They enjoy nature

Taylor says that the holidays are an excellent time to enjoy the great outdoors and get some much-needed fresh air.

14. They detach from work

Whatever you do, don’t waste your precious free time on work. You might get ahead in the office in the short-term, but you’re risking burnout and sacrificing your own relaxation. “Work-life balance can seem a trite term, but it’s how many business leaders define true success,” Taylor says.

15. They volunteer

“The holidays can be an ideal time to help others who are less fortunate, especially during this time of year when a sense of support and community goes a long way,” Taylor says. Plus, helping others may make you feel happier and healthier.

Kinh nghiệm ứng tuyển chương trình YSEALI

Có thể nói YSEALI là chương trình hot nhất dành cho thanh niên Đông Nam Á vì các bạn đậu được sẽ có 5 tuần trải nghiệm tài trợ 100% bởi chính phủ Mỹ với chương trình được chuẩn bị chu đáo kĩ lưỡng, được gặp gỡ bạn bè, những nhà lãnh đạo tài giỏi và những trải nghiệm tuyệt vời. Ngoài ra, gặp trực tiếp, hỏi và bắt tay tổng thống Obama. So Coool!

YSEALI.jpg

Thông tin chương trình: https://vn.usembassy.gov/education-culture/yseali/

Với vị trí đã từng đậu chương trình YSEALI 2015 và nhiều bạn muốn hỏi về việc ứng tuyển chương trình, mình viết súc tích lại những điểm quan trọng hy vọng giúp cho bạn có thể chuẩn bị chu đáo và đầy tự tin.

  1. Chọn chương trình nào?

Hiện tại có 3 chương trình chính:

  • Civic Engagement (Chuyên về các vấn đề xã hội)
  • Environmental Issues (Chuyên về các vấn đề môi trường) 
  • Social Entrepreneurship and Economic Development. (Chuyên về phát triển kinh tế, doanh nghiệp liên quan tới xã hội 

Chương trình nào bạn phù hợp?  Đó là chương trình nào bạn quan tâm nhất, mong muốn tìm hiểu nhất và là lĩnh vực bạn giỏi nhất, có kinh nghiệm, background mạnh nhất, để thuyết phục được người tuyển chọn. Không nên chọn vì tỷ lệ đậu (và đây là lí do dễ rớt nhất)

2. Tiêu chí để bạn có khả năng đậu cao

Có 5 yếu tố sẽ giúp bạn đậu và đây là 5 yếu tố mà người tuyển chọn sẽ cân nhắc:

  • Đạt độ tuổi quy định (Việc xê dịch 1 tuổi có thể chấp nhận)
  • Sử dụng thành thục tiếng Anh (Không cần bằng cấp, nhưng chú ý thể hiện trong bài essay và trong lúc phỏng vấn)
  • Sự quan tâm, tìm hiểu, mong muốn cho sự phát triển môi trường xung quanh.
  • Khả năng lãnh đạo (Hãy thể hiện trong đơn ứng tuyển và phỏng vấn bằng cách nêu lên các vai trò leader hoặc những câu chuyện thể hiện khả năng lead của bạn)
  • Kiến thức, background liên quan đến chủ đề (Đây là điều QUAN TRỌNG bên tuyển chọn sẽ xem xét, hãy thể hiện bằng kinh nghiệm, câu chuyện, sự nhiệt huyết)

Lưu ý: Bạn phải thật sự có background mạnh với chủ đề lựa chọn thì khả năng của bạn được lựa chọn so với các bạn khác mới cao được. Hãy suy nghĩ trong 100, 1000 người, lí do tại sao chương trình chọn bạn.

3. Thư giới thiệu 

Hồ sơ ứng tuyển có gồm thư giới thiệu từ giáo viên/giảng viên hoặc từ sếp (nếu đã làm việc). Đây không chỉ là thư giới thiệu cho có. Mà là một nguồn tham khảo thể hiện năng lực của bạn có phù hợp hay không? Cho nên hãy để ý và cố gắng làm sao thư giới thiệu có thể nổi bật được những điểm trong tiêu chí đặt ra:

  • Bạn là cá nhân chủ động, có tố chất lãnh đạo
  • Bạn quan tâm tới vấn đề xung quanh, tới chủ đề bạn ứng tuyển
  • Bạn đã/đang/sẽ có kế hoặch hành động đó.

4. Lưu ý gì trong đơn ứng tuyển để qua được vòng phỏng vấn 

Mình đề cập vấn đề rất thực tế: Sẽ có cả trăm, cả ngàn đơn ứng tuyển gửi tới chương trình, mà chỉ dựa vào thư giới thiệu, bản điểm và đơn ứng tuyển để chọn ra 10-20 người. Thì bạn chắc chắn phải nổi bật về background, về leadership, về những gì đã, đang đóng góp cho cộng đồng về khả năng thể hiện bản thân trong bài essay.

Ví dụ: trong đơn ứng tuyển, theo mình, các câu sau rất quan trọng:

  • Work Experience
  • Volunteer, Community service and Extra-Curricular Activities
  • Name your most significant  publications/honors/awards/projects/other accomplishments

Nếu trong việc học, công việc và thành tích có liên quan leadership, đóng góp giáo dục, cộng đồng, thanh niên thì sẽ là điểm cộng rất lơn cho bạn.

Lưu ý: Nhớ gộp cả 3 documents thành 1 file PDF nhé. Thứ tự: Application – Thư giới thiệu – Thành tích,bằng khen

5. Bài luận essay:

“Please tell us about yourself and your goals including the following: What about your background and/or interests makes you competitive for the YSEALI Academic Institutes? What will you contribute to the YSEALI Fellowship?  How do you expect your participation in the Fellowship affecting your community, country, or the ASEAN region?  How will the Fellowship affect you personally?  Please structure your essay in paragraphs and limit your response to 500 words, or approximately a page, single spaced.”

Phải nói là đây là một bài luận rất quan trọng, bạn có thể dùng mọi từ để thể hiện và thuyết phục tại sao trong 100, 1000 người, chúng tôi phải chọn bạn.

  • Background, interest: Bạn đã làm, có điều gì hơn những người khác
  • Contribute to the program: Bạn có kiến thức, kinh nghiệm, điểm gì để đóng góp chương trình, giúp thể hiện tốt đại diện Việt Nam
  • Affecting community: Bạn sẽ làm được gì cho cộng đồng sau chương trình với những gì trải nghiệm, học được?
  • Affect you: Chương trình giúp được gì cho bạn

Mỗi câu hỏi đều mang ý nghĩa cả, đều đánh giá xem trình đồ tiếng Anh, sự hiểu biết, độ phù hợp và khả năng tham gia của bạn trong chương trình. Nên hãy lưu ý súc tích và thể hiện.

Giới hạn là 500 từ hoặc 1 trang giấy: Các bạn phải hiểu rất rõ là người chọn không có nhiều thời gian nên bạn thể hiện bản thân bằng cách viết dài, viết nhiều, kể lể chỉ khiến bạn mất điểm ngay từ cái nhìn vào độ dài, nên hãy viết ngắn gọn, súc tích, thể hiện cô đọng ý quan trọng của bản thân.

Hãy liệt kê từng ý cho từng câu trả lời. Sau đó viết lại thành bài essay, đọc đi đọc lại kĩ lưỡng xem có bị sai sót chính tả, ngữ pháp không, có bị lập ý, dài dòng không, có thể cắt gọn các từ ngữ dư thừa không.

6. Phỏng vấn

Các bạn hãy kiên nhẫn chờ đợi kết quả, sau khoảng 1 tháng sẽ có kết quả. Đừng gửi email, gọi điện lên chương trình.

Và chúc mừng bạn nếu bạn đã lọt qua vòng này vì bạn đã vượt qua được rất rất nhiều bạn trẻ khác. Mình có các lưu ý sau:

  • Chuẩn bị: Hãy đọc lại hồ sơ ứng tuyển của mình, hãy phân tích điểm mạnh, điểm yếu của bản thân. Hãy tập trung hết tất cả những điểm ưu thế của bản thân, để thuyết phục họ chọn bạn. Bạn có thể lên mạng tìm những câu hỏi phổ biến trong phỏng vấn hoặc tự lên các câu hỏi có khả năng hỏi để chuẩn bị trước câu trả lời, tránh bị vấp. (Ví dụ: hãy giới thiệu bản thân bạn? Tại sao bạn quan tâm chương trình này?)
  • Câu hỏi phỏng vấn: Hỏi những câu gì? Đó là điều bạn quan tâm, và chắc chắn chương trình sẽ dùng thời gian phỏng vấn để xác thực thông tin bạn đã điền trong hồ sơ và kiểm tra 5 yếu tố mình đã nêu, bạn có thực sự phù hợp không: Khả năng nói chuyện bằng tiếng Anh, tại sao bạn muốn tham gia chương trình này? Bạn có tố chất lạnh đạo không? Bạn quan tâm xã hội như thế nào? Bạn có dự định gì? … Hãy chuẩn bị kĩ lưỡng!
  • Ăn mặc: Lịch sự, đơn giản, không trễ hẹn, đến trước 10-20 phút.
  • Thời gian phỏng vấn: Sẽ ngắn và rất nhanh vì thời gian có hạn, nên hãy chuẩn bị kĩ lưỡng như mình đã nêu, để vào đó bạn chỉ có thể trả lời nhanh, gọn, chính xác trọng tâm
  • Thái độ: Đây cũng là một điểm quan trọng, bạn phải thể hiện sự chân thành, nhiệt huyết, năng lượng, vui vẻ vì chương trình cần những người như thế.

Chúc mừng nếu bạn đã kết thúc vòng Phỏng vấn. Và hãy kiên nhẫn chờ đợi kết quả nhé. Chúc bạn đạt được kết quả mong muốn.

Hãy hỏi bằng cách comment dưới đây nếu bạn muốn mình trả lời thêm 😉
