[zz]关于Supporting Letters (SL)的个人意见 laoxiao//gter

1. 首先要说明的是,支持信并不是签证所必须的材料,而且在很多情况下,VO不一定会仔细阅读VISA APPLICANT的 Supporting Letters,甚至可能根本就不看SL,因此,关于SL的作用,众说不一,有的说有用,有的则说毫无用处。

2. 签证是一个综合因素的结果,VISA APPLICANT自然是材料准备的越充分越好。有鉴于此,特将准备SL的个人意见加以总结,以飨有心人。

3. SL会因签证类型和具体的VISA APPLICANT不同而略有差异,但从本质上讲,SL的最终目的是使VO在阅读SL后,做出有利于VISA APPLICANT 的决定。

4. 就通常所见的 F-1、J-1、H-1B 三类签证而言,如果需要SL的话,SL的内容显然侧重点有差别。举例来说,J-1签证的申请者一般是postdoctor(交换学生也持J-1 VISA,在此不做讨论),申请者已经具有博士学位,在某种程度上说,是学者;而H-1B签证是工作签证,VO不会考虑移民倾向问题,相对容易获得VISA。这二者显然和F-1 VISA APPLICANT 有区别。

5. 具体而言,J-1 VISA APPLICANT 的SL 应该着重强调APPLICANT 的学术成果、研究能力、以及对将要参加的RESEARCH PROJECT 的重要性以及完成计划后将如期回国等;H-1B和J-1大致类似。

6. 再谈F-1 VISA APPLICANT。F-1 是学生签证,不管是去读MASTER 还是PHD,所要强调的应该是符合学校的招生原则,是一个优秀的个体。该个体将来会在要去学习的地方得到很好的教育,而得到良好教育的VISA APPLICANT 在结束学业后回国将获得更好的发展机遇。

7. SL可以分为国内SL和国外SL两部分:国内的可以是导师、本专业领域内知名的教授等;国外的可以是FUTURE HOST PROFESSOR 或将去学校的系主任等。

8. 国内SL的准备:国内的一般由自己撰写,请教授修改签名即可。封口、签名,在VO需要或认为可以向VO出示时当着VO的面拆开呈上。

9. 国外SL的准备:可以自己拟个草稿,E-MAIL给老板或相关人士,修改确认签名;或直接由老板等亲自撰写,签名封口后快递邮寄。余处理同8。

10. SL最好用学校的专用信纸,这样正式。

11. SL一份由自己带着去签证,另外一份请教授在签证前3-4天传真到大使馆/领馆签证处,在SL上方标明你的汉语拼音姓名、护照号、预约的签证日期等。

12. 如果没有正式的打印件,用E-MAIL的打印件也可以。打印时务请和发件人、收件人的E-MAIL ADDRESS一起打印,而不仅仅打印内容。即在线打印。

13. SL的内容大致和推荐信相同,主要包括的是:A. 写信人的身份;B. 和VISA APPLICANT 的关系;C. VISA APPLICANT 是优秀的(如国外的SL可以说,在众多的申请者中为什么挑选了你等);D. VISA APPLICANT 在学成后会如期归国等等。

14. SL的抬头可以是: Dear VISA Officer

15. SL不要过长,一般一张A-4纸足够,至多不要超过一页半的A-4纸。


以上所言,纯属个人感受,故请酌情参考。如有异议,请不吝指教。

有好几个人问了
我想干脆贴出来吧
这是导师写的,愿意做我回来以后的推荐人的
其实很简单
It is my pleasure to have Ms. LIU Shanshan as my graduate student and resea
rch assistant in our department from 2000 till now. As her advisor, I was im
pressed by her diligence and talent in her study and research work. She is t
he only one to graduate one year in advance in her class this year.

As a returnee from USA, I know the education there could do what a great hel
p for working in China. I encouraged her to pursue her PHD degree in the Uni
ted States with the highest enthusiasm. I believe she deserves such opportun
ity to learn more advanced knowledge there.

And I have talked about her future plan with her. I will be her reference af
ter she gets her PHD degree and comes back to realize her plan. I really hop
e she could join our department, but I know her ambition is not only to do t
he research, but also to emerge her research result into industry applicatio
n in China. Upon her request, I will recommend her to the R&D center founded
by leading company, such as Delta, GE, HUAWEI and UTRC. I personally have g
ood relationship with these companies and have cooperated with their R&D cen
ter. I am sure Shanshan will surely get her position there, along with her e
xcellent academic performance and overall ability.

I would like to provide more information upon your request.

这是我要去的Delta的
With fast business growth, continuous progress and new product development,
Delta has become the world\'s leading switching power supply manufacturer an
d a major supplier of video displays & electronic components for computer, t
elecommunication, networking and other industries.

Each year, Delta devotes 5% of its sales revenues into R&D, and it’s still
in expanding. So we really welcome people with strong theoretical background
and research experience, especially those with an international background,
We will offer a competitive salary, outstanding benefits package and the pr
ofessional advantages of an environment that supports their development.

As for Miss. Shanshan Liu, she is clearly among those kind of promising peop
le that we needed. As far as I know, she has demonstrated strong research an
d development ability during her graduate study. We sincerely hope she would
join Delta Power Electronics Center after she gets her Ph.D. degree from th
e United States.

It is my pleasure to have Miss ** as my undergraduate student and research ass
istant in my group from Mar.2002 till July.2002. She exhibits solid background
and strong ability in the experiment and her research work. I believe that Mi
ss ** will make many valuable contributions in her future research fields. Thr
ough our communication, I find that her motive to the US is very clear: she ju
st wants to improve her academic capability under the guidance of excellent fa
culty and with advanced research method and equipment. I think chemistry is th
e right major for her and she should fully take advantage of this precious ove
rsea-study opportunity. After she gets her Ph.D degree, I strongly hope that s
he can return to China and join my group and work with me again to use what sh
e has learned to improve the research quality and level of our lab. I would be
very sorry if she missed this chance. If further information about her is nee

发表点小意见:我觉得SUPPORT LETTER不需要封口,那样怪怪的。因为SUPPORT LETTER肯定就是为了证明某个特定的目的才写的,内容当然是写的人同意你的想法才写的,这和申请学校的推荐信不一样。这个SUPPORT LETTER不是VO要求的,是你主动提供的,所以不需要封口,而且效力肯定也就要打折扣(封口了也没什么区别,效力一样是打折扣的)。但是申请的是学校强制要求的,当然要封口,而且效力也比较公平客观。纯属个人观点,决定还要自己拿 :)
