With competition for jobs intense, students of Martin Luther Christian University (MLCU) were given some tips today on how to make the jump from the institute to the company.
MLCU’s School of Economics, Commerce and Management, in collaboration with the ICFAI Business School (IBS), organised the student development programme on the topic ‘College to Corporate’ at the university campus.
IBS deputy general manager Abhishek Kundu was the resource person and he drew the attention of the students on pertinent characteristics of how to stay up-to-date in the corporate world.
He emphasised personality as a differentiation and how students need to develop to thrive towards personality development that can be inculcated through the habit of reading. Secondly, working with other people can change one’s perspective and he elaborated on the importance of a positive mindset, communication, confidence, listening skills and time management, which are the key ingredients while pursuing an ideal job.
Reading books and newspapers, engaging in sports, being familiar with how the world works and travelling will help one cope with the transition from college or campus life to the corporate world, he ended by saying.
