The word 'Convince' IDK.

I saw the word's meaning at the Oxford dictionary,

and I don't understand why it uses 'of' in the sentence.

The word 'Convince' meaning is 'to make someone/yourself believe that something is true.' Then the following is its example.

- You'll need to convince them of your enthusiasm for the job.

If it shows to use your enthusiasm to convince them,

well, I can use the word 'With'?

give an example: You'll need to convince them with your enthusiasm for the job.

    You'll need to convince them of your enthusiasm for the job.

    你必須說服他們你對這份工作有熱枕。

    You'll need to convince them with your enthusiasm for the job.

    你必須用你對這份工作的熱枕來說服他們。

    of 在這裡是表示 「內容」,你要說服他們什麼呢? 說服他們 「你對這份工作有熱枕」。 of 是比較常用的搭配字。

    但用 with 也沒錯,不過意思是 「使用」,你必須 「用對這分工作的熱枕」 來說服他們。

    介係詞有含意,使用不同的搭配介係詞,意思就不一樣。
