Wish 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.
You 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”?
My dear friends, this phase from now until your joining date is not Waiting period; this is Gestation period, Development period or Constructive period. This is the time you develop yourself, prepare yourself for the professional 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 world).
Don’t stress out. You don’t need to enroll for any courses or spend nights memorizing professional jargon's or crunch numbers from organizations balance sheet...
You 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.
Are 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 freshers.
You just need to make yourself aware. Be informed...
Preparation 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….
