北美top 10 cs教职的准备和面试经验

北美

这篇文章只针对从11月初开始提交材料到4月底所有面试结束的过程。不讨论博士生涯如何多发论文,如何建立connection,如何拿好的推荐信。因为在你上market的时候,你所有的论文,推荐信等等硬件就已经没办法改变了。我想讨论的就是在无法改变的硬件基础上,最大化的增强自己的面试能力拿到符合自己背景的最好的教职offer。 1.教职拿offer的条件 要拿到offer,需要过两关。第一关是你的材料(简历+推荐信+文书)通过审核和电话面试让你拿到onsite面试。第二关是在onsite面试表现出色,拿到最后offer。 1.1材料审核 在第一关拿到电话面试和onsite面试,不同背景的人有不同的方法。我总结下来有以下几种: 有很强的publication(简历),有导师的电话/邮件直接推荐(推荐信),有那个学校认识的熟人(推荐信),细致的方向特别对口(文书)。这一步是OR的关系。只要有一项符合,一般就能拿到电话面试。所以为了拿到更多的面试,我们可以用不同的途径去争取不同的学校。如果一个学校没有人认识,那么你的文书就要针对性的写。如果一个学校有熟人,那么文书就可以交一个比较general的。如果觉得自己的条件符合那个学校,不妨在申请完之后,给系里的招生委员会再发一封邮件,附上自己的申请材料。很多人说coverletter不重要,但我觉得当一个学校你没有熟人的时候,coverletter很重要。coverletter的格式排版尤其重要,体现了你做事的认真态度。在大家上market前1到2年,可以多看看周围找工作的人的主页,一般大家都会把文书放在主页上。 1.2电话面试 电话面试有很多资料介绍怎么准备,我在准备的时候也看了很多liutongping老师和yaya老师的资料。除了准备常规问题外,有两个重要的点。一个是回答的不能太快,每个问题回答的不能太长(可以掐表训练,最多2min每个问题)。当你回答完1min,可以稍作停顿。如果现场沉默,可以选择再补充一分钟。一定要给别人能打断你提问或者改变话题的机会。还有一个点就是英语要标准流利。因为都是准备好的问题,可以写在纸上,慢慢地读。因为我们不是nativespeaker,我不建议大家用口语化的英语来回答(尽量少用youknow,well这种词),我建议所有问题都尽量用书面化的英语来回答。 1.3现场面试 现场面试是最重要,主要包括jobtalk,1-1meeting和groupmeeting(一起吃饭)。这里就是AND的关系了,每一项都必须发挥出色,才能拿到最终的offer 所以总结下,要拿到offer的逻辑表达式就是 (强publicationrecordOR强推荐信OR对口的方向)AND(英语交流能力)AND(成功的jobtalk)AND(成功的一对一面试)从这个例子可以看到,paper其实是充分不必要条件,有1-2篇可以给talk的paper就够了。而英语能力和面试能力则是必不可缺的。 2.如何准备jobtalk 首先我们要知道我们的听众,jobtalk是讲给系里非你方向的的教授听的。一般越senior的教授话语权越大。所以我们的针对听众是50+的正教授,且与你不是一个方向。我有以下几点经验: a)语速绝对不能快,甚至可以缓慢一点。ppt字体一定要大,至少24。推荐字体gillssans。ppt千万不要太密。这一切都是你的talk的最基础。让别人能无压力舒服的听你talk。我推荐所有人看下https://youtu.be/Hp7Id3Yb9XQ这个视频。尽量做到里面的每一点。 b)不要用激光笔照射ppt,用手去指。如果教室很大,屏幕很高,要用教棒。尽量oldschool一点,这样系里年长的教授会对你有好感。激光笔在大教室,基本没人看的清。 c)不要站在讲台后面讲ppt。要勇敢的站在舞台中央,勇敢的站在讲台前面直面观众,和听众越近越好。模仿老师讲课的气氛,把听众当成学生,即使他们是院士。可以身体侧四十五度,一边看幕布(而不是你的电脑屏幕!),一边看着观众。同时用教棒配合脚步的走动来让观众知道你在讲哪部分。要给听众足够的压力,让他们不敢低下头玩手机或者收发邮件。轮流和每个人有eyecontact,让他们能被你吸引。比如讲到scale的问题,就可以系里做system的教授eyecontact。讲到算法部分,就可以和做ml的教授eyecontact。不同的部分看着不同的人。再好的talk,没人听,有什么用呢?其实大家都说中国人在美国找教职难。我觉得不一定是对亚裔的歧视,很多中国同学在做talk的时候确实会表现的很不自信,经常躲在讲台后面,然后语速很快很紧张。我在准备面试的时候,曾经每天早上到学校最大的阶梯教室一个人练习talk,然后录下来回去看。刚开始的时候,即使下面没有一个人,面对那么大的教室我也很紧张,就想躲在讲台后。但后面就好多了。 d)演讲手势,穿着,语调,音量。这些都很重要,可以去youtube搜演讲手势,如何表现数字,表现tiny,large等等。可以看tedtalk去学习他们的停顿等等。 e)英语。很多人是对着ppt讲。我建议大家把每页要将的写下来,背出来,并且确定语法和用词准确。发言也要准确。我在准备的时候,找了我的nativespeaker朋友,让他把我的演讲稿念了一遍录音,我对着他的英语一个个次纠正我的英语和语调。 f)不要用专用词汇。比如你是做ml的,要考虑怎么讲,可以让做system的人能听懂。做ml的人在你给talk前很大可能看过你的paper了,所以反而不用太顾及他们意见。对方向的人,1对1meeting更重要。 3.报告内容 一个报告最重要的是让人觉得值得来花一小时做着听你讲。所以一定要让其他教授有收获,能记得你讲了些什么,并且能感觉到你的科研能与他们合作。如果不同方向的人都觉得想和你合作,那你离成功就不远了。 以下我总结的想让别人记住的点,按重要性递减 a) 让人记住你的报告title,你是做什么问题的 b) 你的takehomemessage,你的结论是什么?你的研究方向的与众不同导致了什么结论? c) novelty。如果你不在学术圈,这个问题会多久后才被人发现被人解决? d) 报告的结构,你分别讲了哪2个或者3个部分 其实只要做到这4点就足够了,其中的算法细节都不是那么重要。 有几个比较重要的点: a)前三页ppt一定要进入主题, b)报告中有一段5到10分钟的时间很细致的介绍一个你的算法,来体现你的teaching能力, c)反复总结你的contribution,在刚开始就总结一次,报告结束再总结一次,最后qa的时候把ppt停留在那一页(而不是 致谢的页), d)相关工作不能遗漏,要体现严谨 本文转载自1亩3分地论坛,了解详细内容请访问:https://www.1point3acres.com/bbs/thread-640634-1-1.html
