Blunders that can blow your resume

Do you usually wonder whether your resume had been read by your prospective employer? Does the phobia of your application being lost amidst competitive candidates a common worry to you? If you answered ‘yes’ to either of the two or both of these questions, you have reached to the right site to gain answers.

We all have dream jobs and a good, well-structured resume is the first weapon in the hands of the applicant that can make him or her win battle for the best job in the market. It is commonly told that if you don’t tell well, you can’t sell good. It is firmly believed in the professional world that one rarely gets a second chance to make first impression. Resume is the first communication that happens between a candidate and an employer even without seeing each other. The decision of whether or not to meet in person is processed only after screening resume prior to scrutinizing digital footprints of the applicant. It is worth your time to spend and build your resume. Following are a set of few tips that I would like to share:

  1. Label ‘Resume or CV’

More often than not it had been observed that the candidates write out resume or CV as a main heading to the document. How many a times, have we observed a toothbrush or a biscuit being labeled as a ‘product’? This is a cliché and must be stringently avoided.

  1. Focus on ‘me’

Just imagine someone talking to you even for a single minute about their past, present and future, how long would you be interested to listen to such a person? Same goes for your prospective boss or employer: if you won’t talk through your resume about how can you help the organization you wish to apply for, how do you even imagine your selection?

  1. Faking

It is a common error to bloat about achievements and listing up skills that one does not really possess and remember, interview is a situation where all that had been printed on the page is screened, scrutinized, quizzed and verified. To filter out milk from water is very facile for any interviewer, so do it at your own risk.

  1. Cliché Career Objective

‘To be a fruitful asset to the organization where I can enrich my learning and growth’ is a hackneyed phrase under the category of career objective. The job that is being looked forward to by the prospective employee promises and beholds along with career aspirations, his or her financial wellbeing too. Thus, it is quintessential to carefully and candidly draft it.

  1. Listing roles not results

Many a times, while talking the might of the previous jobs, candidates tend to focus more on their previous job roles, duties and tasks assigned than the results achieved. The prospective employer is interested in calculating objectively the contribution of the candidate for the job and thus working upon the framework of salary.

  1. Listing accomplishments without date

Accomplishments such as winning sports or dancing competitions during schooldays stand good stead to communicate an overall groomed personality. But blowing your own trumpet, should be done cautiously.

THE SUSTAINABLE STUDENT

The earth may not be the main thing most of the youth invest energy pondering. But the fact is that, wherever there are individuals, neighborhood biological systems are influenced. Furthermore, this is no less the case at schools and colleges.

 

Indeed, the probability is high that college grounds wind up delivering much more waste than different sorts of environment, basically on account of the high number of students they are taking into account. All things considered, in a few regions number of the students may take leap in many thousands when college term starts!

 

In this way, how might you consolidate the idea of green-mindedness into your every day student life, and help to make a more sustainable campus? Here are 8 approaches to begin:

 

  1. Quit the concept of “Use and Throw”

One of the greatest wellsprings of waste are the ‘use and throw’ items, for example, plastic forks, blades, spoons, glasses, water bottles, and everything else which gets utilized once and after that hurled in the junk. Typically things made of paper are biodegradable, yet most disposables made out of plastic aren’t. So, it can remain in landfills for many years, before being converted into compost.

It can be enticing to spare yourself the task of washing dishes. However, by adhering to changeless reusable plates, cutlery and containers, you’ll be living substantially more economically – and furthermore spare cash in the long run.

 

Likewise, you can, get yourself a pleasant reusable water bottle, rather than purchasing water each time you go out. A few colleges have even restricted the offer of filtered water on grounds, to urge everybody to add to a more sustainable college.

 

  1. Purchase second-hand, purchase from neighborhood, and re-offer

 

Albeit most student residences come with basic amenities, you might need to include a couple of additional things like a floor covering, pictures or even a cozy chair to feel more like home. There are three primary focuses to make sure to do this in a green way.

 

To begin with, purchase second-hand things. This implies giving new life to something that still has a considerable measure of years left in it. Second, purchase locally if feasible, rather than requesting from encourage away. This helps in the growth of indigenous economy and also leaves lesser carbon footprint. Third, when you move out, exchange what you don’t require, or give it to philanthropy. A few colleges really compose accumulations of unneeded things toward the finish of every year, which would then be able to be passed on to new admissions.

 

  1. Adopt a moderate way of life

 

The best way to a sustainable green living is to grasp a moderate way of life. This is implies just purchasing something new when you really require it. Truly need another outfit for a gathering? What about swapping closets with a companion for the party?  Wish to have outside food? Give a trial to your own culinary skills, rather than picking up junk food every time.

 

Getting used to a moderate way of life while at college can be really outstanding for the forthcoming years.

 

  1. Try not to get influenced or involved by the offers

 

One of the advantages of being a bachelor is that you frequently get loads of offers for a wide range of free stuff. It’s hard to turn down the offer when it’s free – however make an effort not to take things only for it. Acknowledge what you truly need and will utilize, yet abstain from filling your place with things you know you’ll just wind up tossing out.

 

  1. Go e-way

 

Quite a long time ago there were no other options to note pads, course readings and organizers brimming with materials from teachers. While there are still a lot of these things drifting around college grounds, there’s unquestionably a switch towards doing things all the more carefully, and the gadgets we bear with us day by day help this incredibly.

 

At whatever point conceivable, exploit innovation to diminish paper use. Make notes on your PC, and just take the printouts when actually needed. Simply make sure to keep a back up of everything consistently! To have a significantly greater effect on making a feasible colleges, you can likewise urge fellows and friends to go the e-way.

 

  1. Start Using Bicycles

 

Driving an auto causes pollution: whereas riding a bicycle is a standout amongst the most feasible vehicles for the nearby transportation. It also helps in keeping you fit and healthy!

 

  1. Hold off on the warming/air conditioners

 

Huge numbers of us reach to turn on the heaters and Acs very rapidly – however before you do, attempt different choices first. If its not very cold, then put on some additional layers of woolens. Getting warm? Open a few windows. Obviously there are times when you have to utilize the warming or aerating and cooling frameworks, however endeavor to keep it to a base.

 

  1. Reuse/Recycle

 

At long last, maybe the most effortless approach to make a more reasonable college, is to reuse as much as you can. Regardless of whether it’s paper, plastic, gadgets or apparel, numerous colleges have reusing offices, so discover where these are found. Urge your companions to do it the same way, and in case your college doesn’t have a reusing program, then take a lead and work towards getting one created? It’ll have a major effect, and look extraordinary on your list of qualifications!

Bitcoin Trading Mechanism and Performance Evaluation

Bitcoin is one of the most popular digital currency tools acting as a key player in the cryptocurrency marketplace. Bitcoin instruments work on the principle of lower transaction costs as compared to other traditional online payment mechanisms and are operated by a decentralized authority. Unlike government-operated currencies, Bitcoin can be transacted for conventional currencies; in fact, its exchange rate against the dollar fascinates potential investors and traders driven by currency plays. Currently the market cap for all Bitcoin (abbreviated BTC or, less frequently, XBT) in circulation exceeds $7 billion. Speedy transaction and easy remittances have stabilized the Bitcoin trading network across many top –notch countries across the globe including Russia, China, Japan, United States, Sweden, South Korea, Netherlands, United Kingdom, Australia and India. The key benefit of Bitcoin system, equated to the digital currency methodologies established before Bitcoin, is that it permits transaction between any two parties without the mediation of an authority like central bank. A public ledger of transactions is maintained in the peer-to-peer network of Bitcoin users. The dealings such as the number of Bitcoins received and sent by a specific user (Bitcoin address) are maintained in that ledger. The Bitcoin cryptocurrency documents its transactions in a community log known as the blockchain. Its security depends analytically on the scattered protocol that maintains the blockchain operated by Miners. The Bitcoin functions in the mode as the ATM that comprises of a string of numbers or letters attached in a certain fashion. A pin is often presented to the user of the Bitcoin account for undertaking any type of monetary transaction with any individual across the globe.The prices of Bitcoins have gone through various schedules of appreciation and depreciation termed as bubbles and busts. In 2011, the value of one Bitcoin swiftly rose from about US$0.30 to US$32 before coming back to US$2. During the 2012–13 crypto – financial crisis, the Bitcoin price activated and recorded a high of US$266 on 10 April 2013, before hitting to around US$50.  Bitcoin is 7 and 8 times more volatile than Gold and S&P 500 respectively. Its volatility is 18 times more than the US dollar.  After a prickle in its value in 2013 and consequently stability of its price, the value of Bitcoin has started steadying of late. Between December 2016 and December 2017, the price of Bitcoin has risen almost 1600 percent.

However, recurrent disagreements and emergence of whims like ‘Gold for Bitcoin’ have raised significant legal and policy issues with respect to handling cybernetic currencies. The Reserve Bank of India and the European Banking Authority has also alerted the users against the dangers of virtual currency but has not recommended any regulations. It can be concluded that Bitcoin has become prominent inspite of its volatile nature as there are solid strikes in its assessment in a short time of period across the globe and even in India. Therefore, purchasing Bitcoin with the equivalent amount of risk taken as capitalizing in securities market prove to be a substitute in terms of earning revenues.

Higher Education needs revamp for upcoming generation

Today’s education system, which is prevailingfrom past many decades needs change ,keeping in mind the times we are existing in .Higher education has not been designed to deliver the skills required for the disruptions ahead.

Education is the most important tool for social and economic welfare. A well educated population adequately equipped with knowledge and skill is essential to economic growth. Since education is the key to many challenges ,which today’s youth can face,thus our priority should be to design  education system in such a way so that upcoming generation can ride this wave of change confidently.

More emphasis should be put on skill development programs.Education materials of the 21st century should include interactive teaching ,concept visualization and learning models.Involvement of new technology can play pivotal role in bringing positive change in current education system .In this era of machine meritocracy, system of learning must be changed to match the future dominated by visual reality, artificialintelligence and block chain. Even though these days many students are doing self education by using web –based applications like TED, Wikipedia ,YouTube and many more such applications , but unless until technology is brought into mainstream education structure, masses  will  not be benefited. The main  challenge in front of  the Indian higher education system is to bring equality in quality of education across the length and breadth of the country so that  students in rural, semi urban and urban areas are  able to participate in the new economic change. Along with the improvement and advancement of the education system , the government should be considerate about the economically weaker section of  our society.

Holistic approach towards educating  young minds is very much  required in this era of globalization , capability of student should not be only measured by  marking system , instead  should also be judged by their performances in  project work ,classroom participation, communication, leadership skills and extracurricular activities, only then a genuine student will shine out.On the contrary   now a days , students are  burdened by vast syllabus,which  creates lot of stress , and leaves student  with no time for other activities of their interest.

One more important aspect which can immensely contribute in building strong education system is recruitment of good  teachers and there after  training them time to time on various aspects of education  like  use of  latest technologies in  teaching methodology  and  handling of  behavioral issues related to youth.

Last but not the least ,the fact which needs to be highlighted is  that the  education system has been  commercialized to a  great extent which in turn  is effecting fundamentals of  imparting knowledge to right person . With a result we are compromising on various  parameters of quality education. There is a need for government  intervention for correcting systematic anomalies. If education system’s commercialization continues to increase ,  things will not only be exploited but also manipulated to a great extent for making profits in higher education  . Commercialized education system also affects the students psychological state as well as general behavior.

The highest education is that which does not merely give us information but makes our life in harmony with all existence “- by Rabindranath Tagore.…

THE BEAUTY OF FOCUSED APPROACH IN THE MIDST OF PLETHORA OF INFORMATION

Number five, Ace Archer ,DeepikaKumari, a girl from Ranchi , a daughter of  a rickshaw driver,  believes in working hard andfocused approach  to achieve Olympic Gold in 2020.Dorie Clark , marketing wunderkind believes  one should adopt step by step method for figuring out what strengths define self and how  one can communicate  his/her unique values. Jack welch , the former CEO of General Electric believes , one should never lose sight of who  he/she is  as one  climb  his/ her way to the top.  The realness will make an individual accessible and will connect   and inspire him/her. Udaykotak , Executive chairman , Kotak Mahindra Bank believes , One must havea focused approach to ensure that the money you give out comes back .  The legendary cricketer, SachinTendulkar  promotes that in his 24 years of cricket career he could perform only because of his focused approached towards each and every ball he used to face rather than being  pressurized by huge  expectations of people.

There are many more examples that help us to understand that education with focused approach will generate higher returns on investment in quality education in India. Today quality education is defined as an inclusive education comprising of holistic growth of an individual, but it is highly skewed to Intelligence quotient and negatively skewed to emotional quotient.  Jack Ma , the founder of Ali Baba , the leading e-commerce firm in international market , quoted in Economic Forum , 2017 , that Ali Baba has 49 percent of female employees and they have the highest level of “Love quotient” . Female employees in Ali Baba are not considered as female employees but just as employees. The higher love quotient in female employees not only helps his company to reduce customer attrition rate in a highly demanding e-commerce industry but also it helps to enhance customer relationship management and retain higher contentment of customers.

It can be concluded that management education in world, is a culmination of marketing, operation research, economics, finance, human resource management and data analytics. But the big question for today’s generation regarding effective education yardstick  is with reference to  the quantum of knowledge gained by reading books, performance measured through marks scored,  efficiency measured  through placement package but not  value addition and return on investment on life. Modern education has made youngsters more confused but less focus. With too much data accessibility, information reliability and easy monies, millennials (people born between 1980 -1990)   are in  great confusion. It is highly challenging for them to decide the opportunity cost between success and happiness .An outcome of this is lower level of happiness and higher level of stress amongst Indian youth. It is very much evident from United Nations World Happiness Report 2018, India has been ranked 133 in Happiness Index 2018(i;e eleven point lower than 2017 World Happiness Report). It is worth to note that India has 600 million young people with 74 percent of literacy (as per 2011 census) in India. But in happiness we are behind Pakistan and Afghanistan. In other words, in 21st century of digital era, the educated workforce of India is highly stresseddue to overconsumption of data, money, information, electricity, water, oil and material comforts but far away from nature, quality time,and compassion and gender sensitivity.

We the stakeholders of education need to change the perception towards management education as a holistic approach to quality humanlife, society, nature, corporate culture, nation and world. The focused decision approach can only transform Indian managers from higher level of stress, corruption, and aggression tocalm,rationale, compassionate and happy workforce.

NO GAIN WITHOUT PAIN

Going by the adage, “No pain, no gain”, one actually realizes the sweeter side to any hardships or struggles irrespective of their form and degree. In fact, it is an eternal proof of life. Let it be any sphere; health, education, profession, business, personal goals or any other objective, one has to endure some pain in order to be an achiever. Everything comes at a price. For physical fitness, one needs to sweat it out bearing physical pain and keeping control over one’s diet which implies observing control over one’s psychological hunger patterns. For educational excellence, one needs to mentally grill oneself and perform meticulously which can be attained only through continuous practice and discipline. To be successful in one’s business or profession, it is extremely important to abide by the rules of punctuality, determination, diligence and discipline. These traits are developed through regular follow up of a strict regime and the commitment for on going learning. It sounds quite convenient to read and feel motivated by these human qualities, yet they are not they easily imbibed. Only, those who are ready to go through the ordeal come out to be victorious. And, this is what distinguishes a winner from a loser. Another important aspect is human relationships. Relationship of any kind is a plant which requires to be nurtured with mutual efforts. In order to irrigate any relationship which holds value in one’s life, one has to continuously work towards enriching the relation and have to make compromises whenever required. Whenever, society sees the success of an individual in any stream, it applauds and envies at times. The spectators become mere commentators and are unable to visualize the amount of hard work and sacrifices involved. For instance, a singer who sounds melodious to us, might not have tasted an ice-cream for years in order to maintain the voice quality. An athlete who gets a gold medal for the country might not have remained awake at night and watched a movie with his family in order to keep himself physically fit and disciplined. A teacher who takes a lecture might be taking regular voice rests on daily basis to keep the vocal cords intact. A model who looks ultra thin might not have eaten food for days to keep her figure that way. Hence, there would be innumerable examples existing around and amongst us which connote internal strength and are bearing pain in order to materialize their dreams. In fact, there might be many unpopular names who are enduring many physical and mental tortures and still, smiling portraying their strength and growing in life. It is quite evident that success involves a lot of pain in terms of various traits to be developed, sacrifices to be made and a lot more. One has to always pay for achieving something in life. Thus, don’t be afraid to look at life’s struggles straight into the eyes. Its only then one is able to surmount the unsurmountable.
