The session was very informative with some humorous punches thrown in by the speaker to make it a fun and charming session.
For the second session of the day was taken by Ms Radhika Mahajan. The session was a very interactive one, with students volunteering to answer some questions by the speaker, who gave tips on communication skills while correcting the answers of the volunteers. The speaker emphasised on the need of soft skills in professional life. She also mentioned the three things to be an effective communicator- words, voice and body language. The speaker highlighted that hard skills can get the students the interview call, but to get the job, the students need soft skills.
The last session was taken up by Mr. Hirdesh Madan. He took the seminar on 'Group Discussions and Personal Interviews', where he provided the students with advices from his own 20+ years of experience. This session focused on the various dynamics of a group discussion and what the interviewer is looking for in a prospective employee during a GD. The speaker exclaimed that an interview is only about what one speaks and how one speaks. He gave the students many tips and tricks to stand out in a personal interview while mentioning all the important points. The session was concluded by answering the queries of the students about the GD and PI by the speaker himself. The students found the session quite insightful and informative.
