How to NOT loss focus during exams

Exam pressure is huge. But it is really huge? In my opinion, NO, never. It seems huge because there are too many empty noises. Everyone has an opinion around you,  your exams,  your career.
The problem area is, we take empty noises seriously, every empty noise bothers us.
Teacher: Exams are coming,  you are poor in language.
Parents: Will you pass the exam with good grade?
Friends: How much you will score?
Siblings: You don't study hard...
Neighbors: What is your career plan?
All these people are not your enemy.  In fact they are the first who come to give you courage in hard times.
Their problem is not you,  your grade or career. Exam is a talking point, it makes news and people love to talk.
The problem is when we hear empty noises we loss control over us.
Be like a lorry driver. Go highway and observe how a lorry driver do not change lane despite too many horns blown into  ears.
A good driver always keep the vehicle on track and let the other vehicles pass when there is room to give a pass.
Dictionary has given us,  two beautiful words to not loss focus, 'excuse me'.

Download Cheat Sheet: How to chose between two different jobs

Throughout the academic career, an individual acquire many skills. From among the skill sets he / she can apply for couple of jobs. Today's question arise from my Quora Profile; an user asked which is better job, editing or marketing?

Editing and Marketing are very broad terms, but from the question I felt and most precisely, I suppose, this person is eligible for both the jobs but not pretty sure to which to make a career choice. For obvious reasons, I think of perhaps this is the problems of many job seekers when they are stuck in selecting a career.

Suppose you have two jobs to chose from Job A and B or three Jobs, Job A, B and C then how to select the better one that fits you?

Consider following points when deciding between Jobs. Ask to yourself following questions

  1. What are the eligibility requirements to apply for this job?
  2. What are the new things I need to learn to do this job? Oo I have necessary skills?
  3. Where I want to be 2 year / 3 year / 5 year down the line? Can this job take me to the place in a fixed period of time?
  4. What are the possibilities for growth and promotions?
  5. How much money I will make from this job?
  6. Whether I will be able to buy a house and save enough for retirement?
  7. If this job will help me in building better relationship with people?
  8. Which job I will really enjoy doing the most?
  9. Which job will give me better and healthy work environment?
  10. Whether I will be able to make changes with time and grow with inustry?
 Here is method to method to evaluate possibilities

  1. Take an spreadsheet, Microsoft XL, Google Sheet or Any you use.
  2. In the sheet mark First Column A as Question, Second Column B as Job A or Job Title, Second Column C as Job B or Job Title, similarly you can mark Job C and Job D
  3. Under the column A, fill these questions 1 to 10
  4. Now against each question give points to each job. For example; 8 points for question no 2 against Job A and 7.5 points against job B
  5. Now sum all the points given against each question for each job.
  6. At the end you will get score of Job on a scale of 10.
Now is the time to decision making

Go for the job that has done well on your evaluation scale. In case of a tie, go for the one that you  will truly love doing.

Trust me, love is alive.

How many times I should really try for GATE

A user asked, I failed twice in GATE, shall I give it a 3rd try or look for alternative career?

From experiences I know, qualifying an examination does not define your capabilities. An examination is a way to follow a certain path for a selected career. Rahul Bajaj, the noted industrialist, written an article way back in summers of 2007 in TOI, where he argued that higher education is a costly affair. When leaving school, you first decide, why you chosing for higher education, are really keen to work on those research laboratories or you are not sure. If you are not pretty sure, chose for alternative career instead of burning midnight oil and then looking for a job at a Pizza Selling Shop or Petrol Pump.
I wish I may have read this during my school years. I am from not a so rich family and I was not a topper. Joining Max Plank on freeship is really really a sweet day dreaming but today I know, perhaps I can't meet many criteria and required money to go for Max Plank and do research.
Going by the analogy, I suppose, you already had put 2 long years on GATE which is a huge time.
So in the Quest of passing GATE, you did not miss out on other beautiful things, I would suggest you to find an alternative career, preferably a Job in your area of expertise.
Everyone is expert in doing something so are the you.
This does not employee that you leave appearing for GATE. Still you can find one day in a year to appear for exam. And 2 hours a day to study for it.
If you already had appeared two times I suppose, your basic understanding of subject matter is already good and need to focus on week areas.
When you will have an alternative career in hand, your mind will be much in free zone to focus on week areas, the reasons behind not passing it.
If your are passionate about GATE, keep appearing but at the same time make best use of your time.
Reading is fun when you do it for passion. You can perform better when you are least stressed.

 GATE is window not the door, follow alternative roots and bring out best your potential.

PS: This is useful for many students who are repeatedly for any examination but not finding a place in merit.

Time comes for a price much than Gold.

Which Social Media Is Right For Your Career

Social Media is talk of the town. If you are not on social media, certainly you will miss on something. However, it’s a most confusing place; your world is limited with 5 inches or less. Android and Internet give a massive boost to social media. People of all categories (all IQ level) have the privilege to meet each other. This is why Social Media is viral. I am not a very social guy, I like keeping things within me. I am not much talkative till it’s not the matter of a debate and winning a competition. However, I am also into social media. Couple times I deleted my social accounts for one reason or the other. But need arises to recreate one again because I need to meet people, my fans and friends.

There are many social media solutions. You can use one for a purpose. However, in my opinion different social media serves to different purposes. Students should be early adopter to social media. A conscious selection of social media is important to build a strong profile. Admission Officers and Recruiters are much likely to scan your social media before making a call. For the benefits of learners and job seekers here I am classifying Social Media Selection For A Career
