Are you ready for cold and flu season? If you want to avoid being sick and feeling like you have to go to the doctor to get antibiotics and other drugs, NOW is the time to be thinking about PREVENTION!
To that end, here’s some great tips to strengthen your body’s immune system during the winter season.
1. Drink the optimal amount of water. With the winter season here, it’s more important than ever to consume the right amount of water for your health.
2. Keep stress to a minimum. Studies have linked high stress levels to making a person more susceptible to catching colds and flu. Minimize your stress by working reasonable hours at your job. Aim for at least one night per week to spend with friends and family. If your stress is out of hand and you feel like you need some help, let me know. Frequently, I work with people who have stress/emotional challenges and utilize batch flower remedies to bring their emotional health, back into balance.
3. Eat a healthy diet. Maintaining a good healthy diet full of fresh fruits and vegetables and minimal amounts of organic meats is another way to keep your body clean and in good, working order. Try eating an extra piece of fruit or veggie every day too!
4. Do your homework to find the best supplement for your health. Even if you eat “perfectly” all the time with loads of fresh fruits and vegetables, you still need to boost your nutrition with a supplement. Chawanprash with Honey is good for improving immunity..

Vocational Training Courses in India

The trainees of Vocational Education and Training typically undergo internship programs in the actual industry, thereby enhancing their skills to the specific industry. The recent years saw big names in automotive, semi-conductor, mobile phones and hardware industry setting their shops in India. One of the key aspects of attracting these big names can be attributed to the availability of the skilled workers to the specific industries.
With no doubt India was able to capitalize the foreign investments, as we have a talent pool with specific skills that is decentralized within the country. The Vocational Education and Training programs play a big part in shaping up the skilled technicians required by the companies. The Vocational Education and Training program falls under the charge of the Ministry of the Human Resources Development (MHRD); this clearly signifies the importance of the course.
The Vocational Education and Training courses really help people in upgrading their skills, as per the career demands. There are polytechnic institutions offering diploma courses in the selected fields. There are many versatile programs, offered under this category, which comprises, programs administered under the craftsmen training scheme (CTS) are operated by Industrial Training Institutes (ITIs) and Industrial Training Centers (ITCs). Many certificate courses are available under this category of education; some of them are listed as below:

How to Motivate Yourself in your study??

‘How do I get motivated to my study?’ is one question I am constantly asked by my students.
I am happy to say that there are many ways to motivate yourself, but it may involve some pain, frustration and overcoming mental barriers to begin with (at least this was the case for me!).
Unfortunately, there are no quick and easy solutions to have you feeling totally inspired and energized about studying a subject or completing a project that may not be all that inspiring/interesting at times.
Here are some of the things you can do to motivate yourself to get on with the work and study that needs doing.

1. Make every thought serve you and move you forward
I heard one professor of Psychology state that we have 60,000 conscious thoughts a day. Now for those of you who just thought ‘What’s a conscious thought?’ that’s exactly what a conscious thought is, you just had one! The Psychiatrist also states that each of these thoughts are going to either be bringing you closer towards achieving your goals or further away from your goals.
2. Visualise yourself taking action
Studies have found that visualisation makes a difference to professional athletes’ performance, so why don’t we as students practice doing it as well?
Practice visualising yourself taking the actions that need to be taken (e.g. see yourself typing up your work on your laptop, organising your files and being able to access articles/materials with ease).
This simple strategy helps you to stay focus on what needs to be done. As Jesse Jackson said once:
“If my mind can conceive it, and my heart can believe it, I know I can achieve it”.

3. Small actions add up
Often we can get bogged down and feel overwhelmed/stressed by the enormity of the things we need to do (e.g. writing an 11,000 word thesis).
I read somewhere recently that worry disappears in the face of action. So next time you start worrying about an assignment or exams, force yourself to do something, however small it might be.
4. Get some good friends and spend time with them
There’s something really comforting and energizing about spending time with others who are going through or have gone through the same painful experience as you.
I was told by one of my lecturers about this idea of getting together with other honours students and having regular writing sessions each week (where you would all sit around at a table and write for an hour or so). Getting together with others can turn boring, stressful tasks into a fun, playful ones.

5. Remind yourself that this won’t go on forever
I see a lot of students that are really overwhelmed and want to throw in the towel at this point in the year in regards to their studies. If you’re a student, remind yourself that this won’t go on forever, that everything changes and all you need to do is just keep taking action.

MBA Degree..... The Right Choice after Graduation......

Why to opt for an MBA Degree?
By Karen Schweitzer..

An MBA is a type of business degree offered through business schools and other graduate-level programs. There are many reasons to consider getting an MBA. Here are some of the most common:

Because You Want to Advance Your Career

Although it may be possible to climb the ranks over the years, there are some careers that require an MBA for advancement. Examples include areas of finance and banking and consultancy. Furthermore, there are also some companies who will not promote employees who do not continue or improve education through an MBA program. Earning an MBA does not guarantee career advancement, but it certainly doesn't hurt employment or promotion prospects.

Because You Want to Change Careers

If you are interested in changing careers, switching industries, or making yourself a marketable employee in a variety of fields, an MBA degree can help you do all three. While enrolled in an MBA program, you will have the opportunity to learn general business and management expertise that can be applied to nearly any industry. You may also get the chance to specialize in a particular area of business, such as accounting, finance, marketing, or human resources. Specializing in one area will prepare you to work in that field after graduation regardless of your undergraduate degree or previous work experience.

Because You Want to Assume a Leadership Role

Not every business leader or executive has an MBA. However, it may be easier to assume or be considered for leadership roles if you have an MBA education behind you. While enrolled in an MBA program, you will study leadership, business, and management philosophies that can be applied to almost any leadership role. Business school may also give you hands-on experience leading study groups, classroom discussions, and school organizations.

Because You Are Truly Interested in Studying Business

One of the best reasons to get an MBA is because you are truly interested in studying business administration. If you enjoy the topic and feel like you can increase your knowledge and expertise, pursuing an MBA for the simple sake of getting an education is probably a worthy goal.

God Bless U all….

How to Score M O R E in AIEEE.....

In a way, AIEEE is not much different from your CBSE board exams. Understanding concepts is the key to success in both. Speed and accuracy is yet another aspect. If you can complete ‘most’ of the paper accurately then you surely can expect a good score.
It is the base for both boards and competitive exams. There are trivial questions that can be formed from between the lines that you might miss while giving it a quick reading. Learn “exceptions” by heart, and make a proper note. Revise them before going to the exam as these are favorite questions with paper setters.
Old is gold!
Practice previous years papers. This applied to your boards as well as entrance tests. Also, carefully examine the pattern of the papers. Set the time limit to complete the paper, speed and accuracy, will automatically come over a period of time.
Concentrate on both the theoryand the numerical part to be able to answer a major part of the paper. Focusing on one aspect limits the scoring capabilities giving your competitor a chance to poke his nose ahead of you.
AIEEE and CBSE: Two sides of the same coin
AIEEE is probably the simplest of all the engineering exams held across the country, which makes it tougher to crack. Sounds strange? It isn’t!
Many IIT-JEE (Indian Institute of Technology– Joint Entrance Examination) toppers fail to do well in the AIEEE exam each year. IIT-JEE demands building concepts and proper application of the concept, where as AIEEE demands speed and accuracy in the stipulated time, besides in-depth knowledge of the subject that JEE demands.
JEE requires you to have strong command on fundamentals to be able to crack tough questions that may be presented in an indirect manner, so that it looks more complex than it actually is. Trivial concepts have to be understood, for they are the basis on which questions are being framed.
To clear AIEEE paper, coverage of the entire syllabus, tricks to solve questions quickly and memorising ability, play an important role. Of course, luck matters, too!
AIEEE and CBSE Board exams have a lot in common and preparing for both of them side-by-side helps reduce burden as well as save crucial time especially, when every second counts! CBSE focuses more on theory while AIEEE has a numerical-based approach. It becomes relatively easy to solve numericals oncethe theory part has been understood thoroughly.

What's the Best way to Revise, before facing an exam....??

It's not always possible to find peace and quiet, and a comfortable place to revise. Try to arrange with those at home a set time and space where you can work without being disturbed. Failing that, think about whether you could use other facilities at school, college, or your local library. If you study in a room where you also eat or sleep, try to keep the work area separate, so it's not always confronting you when you're not studying.
There’s no ‘right’ way to revise, it’s largely a matter of what suits you best and the particular exam you’re taking (multiple choice answers, calculations, short-answer questions, or essays). Methods might include making notes from text books, writing quick summaries of topics (in the form of mind maps or spidergrams perhaps), reciting facts out loud, learning dates, formulae or vocabulary by heart, and reading revision books or watching revision programmes. Switching between methods
helps you hold your interest and absorb information better. Mix dull subjects with more interesting ones, for the same reason. If it’s hard to get started, begin with something easy.

Actively think about, sift and question what you’re writing and reading, and test yourself afterwards. Writing endless notes is probably a waste of time. If you come to something you don’t understand, try reading about it somewhere else. If that doesn’t work, then ask someone who knows the subject well.

If you have a problem with concentration, you can improve it by starting with short bursts of study, then adding an extra few minutes to each session. Don’t try to study for longer than 45 to 60 minutes at a stretch.

It may be less stressful to do the work than it is to worry about it. If you find it hard getting motivated, set yourself measurable goals for each revision session, and tick them off when you’ve achieved them. After each session, acknowledge the achievement, and reward yourself with something. Have a break between sessions, or if you find things getting on top of you. Get a soft drink, read a magazine or take some exercise. Bear in mind that drinks containing caffeine, such as cola, tea and coffee, are stimulants, and may make you feel more agitated.
It's worth practising timed exam questions and papers. This can give you some idea of what the real exam will be like, and of how to divide your time between questions. Although exam papers are never the same, they're similar enough to be useful. There's a good quote that goes, "the more I practised, the luckier I got".

It felt OK to be in the routine of working some of the time and then going to the gym or for a run. I was still going out at night, but I was getting home at a reasonable time. I felt as if I'd got it under control, and so when the exams came, I'd done my best, and stayed sane.

CBSE students are now Guinea pigs

Exams are usually conducted to judge the merit of a student after successfully completing a lesson or a course. The Central Board of Secondary Education, in a revolutionary amendment, decided to abolish the compulsory exam after 10th class and to inject the idea slowly, they have made it optional for those who are appearing in the Board Class Exam (10th) in the year 2010. The decision is not praiseworthy as it has lots of drawbacks. A student’s merit can perfectly be judged by the experts of the board and it’s a proven fact. If he is a weak one, he will intend to face the school exam instead of the board exam. His main target, then, is to pass the exam. The school teachers are usually familiar to him or her. Taking the opportunity of it, the school teachers will be inclined towards tuition. Thus maximum board candidates, who fear to face the Board exam, will be capable of scoring good marks by simply taking tuition from school teachers. A survey reveals the fact that, at present, a huge percentage of the students of reputed private schools of NE region including Agartala have taken the advantage of Private Tuition from school teachers for scoring Good marks in summative assessment test. Thus the main aim of making the matriculation exam an optional one, will be spoiled. Poor students, who have no ability to keep tuition, will face hardship in study in near future. It’s a bourgeois decision on he part of the Ministry of Human resource Development, a brainchild of Kapil Sibal..  On the other hand, weak students, who belong to affluent family, can easily score good marks by taking tuition from school teachers. I hope the Govt. should think twice before implementing such a sensitive decision which may mar the entire education system, though provisions have been kept in Right To Education, to ban Private tuition in any form by the School teachers. But, it will definitely take time to implement such a decision.

Think twice, before entering into a Professional Course in a College..

You will be surprised to know that most of our reputed private colleges show eminent Educationists' images in their magazines or journals. But, to your great surprise, you will rarely find them during your study period. Thus, you can realise that they are bates to catch students or so called customers. It's a popular marketing tricks of many colleges of India. So, it will be better to consult familiar or ex students before depositing your parents' hard earned money into these colleges as admission fees. Avoid Distance Education Courses as mostly they are fruitless. You can't contact your Counsellor. Ya, to increase your educational Qualification while you are in a job, is another thing....
Try to take admission in an UGC recognised University only to avoid any mishap in future...

Be Careful: INFLUENZA is on the air....

World Health Organization says,

Influenza is a viral infection that affects mainly the nose, throat, bronchi and, occasionally, lungs. Infection usually lasts for about a week, and is characterized by sudden onset of high fever, aching muscles, headache and severe malaise, non-productive cough, sore throat and rhinitis.
The virus is transmitted easily from person to person via droplets and small particles produced when infected people cough or sneeze. Influenza tends to spread rapidly in seasonal epidemics.
Most infected people recover within one to two weeks without requiring medical treatment. However, in the very young, the elderly, and those with other serious medical conditions, infection can lead to severe complications of the underlying condition, pneumonia and death.

Some Interview Tips for all of You.....

Interview tips you will find handy
Phone Interviewing Tips
An increasing number of organizations are choosing to use the phone interviewing method to screen candidates before calling them for the actual interview. The main thought behind conducting a phone interview is to allow the company to verify the basic details of the applicant while also scrutinizing his/her basic English speaking skills, enthusiasm for the job and also do a check on the details you have mentioned in your resume. Usually the company will conduct a single phone interview but such norms may or may not be followed by very company, so you can expect a second call if they would like to confirm further details regarding your education, work experience, etc.
When you are submitting your resume along with the job application do not forget to mention what time of the day you will be available as the company will call you at such a time. Be prepared for the interview and always have a copy of your resume with you in case you need it.
Exit Interview
Exit interviews are interviews conducted by a company when an employee is leaving the company. The primary reason for conducting or taking such an interview is to know why the employee is resigning or leaving his job at the company. The exit interview is conducted by either the HR manager or someone who is responsible for recruitment in the company. During the interview the employee’s boss or immediate senior is not invited thus allowing the person to be open and candid regarding his/her decision to leave the company. There is also a form that accompanies the interview where in the reasons for the employees departure from the company, overall experience and feedback is noted.
Who is the interviewer?
The interviewer is a person who is responsible for conducting an interview. The interviewer can be an outsider appointed by the company or a person from the HR or recruitment department of the company. While some interviewers may have a set questionnaire for a technical interview, group interview etc, but most interviewers believe in group discussion interviews or one on one interview. The first interview is always a written interview followed by other interviews.
Interviewers have the uncanny knack of being good observers, they precisely monitor your behavior, your interaction abilities, how confidently you participate and answer during a group interview.
The questions that you can expect – tell me something about yourself, what do you remember the most about your college campus, and why do you want to join this company etc.
Technical Job Interview Tips
Technical job interviews are not classified as being amongst the easier of the job interviews conducted. These interviews are conducted for only those who are technically qualified in a particular field say like computer language programming or engineering. The interviewer will have a certain agenda for each candidate usually based on his/her field of expertise. A technical interview can be very tough if you are not sound in the field, the interviewer can grind you extensively till the time they know for sure whether or not you are completely qualified for the position you seek.
On your part you would well to do some research regarding the latest developments in your sector and the latest tools and applications being employed. If you have been out of job for sometime then do brush up and polish your skills wherever needed.
Creating the first impression
A lot has always been said about the ‘First Impression.’ And the fact is that your first impression during the interview can make a world of difference to your job prospects. First and foremost is dressing up appropriately for the interview. Do not dress up loudly, do not wear a jeans and funky accessories just to prove you are in sync with fashion, neither should to dress up in such a way to suggest you have no dressing sense.
Dress up smartly and your body language should reflect confidence and not a nervous persona. Every candidate has interview jitters but those who are able to display confidence along with the correct attitude are always able to create the right first impression. Thereafter the interviewer is looking forward to interviewing you and knowing about the skills, the abilities and a lot more that you may have to offer to the company.
