申請職位: apply FOR/TO a position

請問 申請一個職位 (position)

在英文應該用

apply for a position

還是

apply to a position?

我是發現FOR 和TO都有人用

甚至在求職信範本之中

FOR和TO都有

請問何者比較好(比較專業)呢

    如果你要以 apply 做"申請"意思來用的話,apply to 跟 apply for 應是有差別的:

    apply to + 申請的對象(如公司、學校、機構等)

    apply for + 你所要申請的標的物(如職位、學籍、許可等)

    故就你的求職信上,若你是以 position 為受詞的話,position 應是"標的物",故用 "apply for a position" 較為恰當。

    你所說求職信範本中FOR跟TO都有,但是其後的受詞屬性應該是不同的吧。

    Hi,

    I would write like this:

    " Dear Sir./Ms.

    I'm apply for a position ... in your company. The job number is XXXX..'

    Since it's used in writing, we say "Apply for ...."

    If you are talking to someone about applying the job, you can say "I will apply to XXXcompay as a XXX(position)" or " I'm in the middle of applying for a driver(XXXjob).

    I hope I answered your question.
