you all a Healthy & Gratifying 2014 ahead!! What a wonderful opportunity is
this for me to write the first Campus blog for this New Year. My last blog was
at a time when you all were in midst of interview season & so it focused on
some simple ways to be a Hero of your life story & get your Dream Job. I am
sure most of you would have made through the recruitment process & are celebrating
the beginning an exciting career soon.

have the offer letter in your hand & one last semester to go between moving
from Campus to Corporate. Few months of “Wait” for you to; open the door of
your office. Apart from clearing exams, going for vacation, spending time with
family & friends; what is your plan for this “Waiting Period”?

dear friends, this phase from now until your joining date is not Waiting

world. This is the time you should work to sharpen your Sword (skills/ talents
/ knowledge) for the War (Competition / to deliver your best in Corporate

professional jargon's or crunch numbers from organizations balance sheet...

already know the company you are planning to join – so keep a check on the
latest developments of organization, product launch, business lines; important
people, research the industry, domain that you will be part of.

you expected to know all this? Here’s the catch..No you are not. There is no
expectation & that is why it is easy to perform beyond expectation. Your
little efforts to keep yourself informed can make you stand out in the crowd of

just need to make yourself aware. Be informed...

never goes unnoticed & it will give you an Edge over others. Remember you
will join in big groups so you will need to leverage on creating little
difference all the time. This preparation will help you to understand &
perform much better during training & later implement learning’s of
training on the job. Along with company website & random surfing, social
media is the best place to tab this information.

So get started now….
