for "Top 7 Ideal Careers for Extroverts"


When it comes to finding a job, most extroverts end up in a job that does not feel like one. Extroverts tend to be talkative, expressive, enthusiastic and assertive. Although these characteristics aren’t the only factors for choosing a job, it can help you to know what kind of role you could ideally fit into.

If you are an extrovert and searching for a job that enables you to work with other people to let your energy and creativity flowing, here are some ideal jobs for extroverts, as reported by Jada A. Graves on U.S. news.

Sports Coaching:
It is an ideal job for people who like to talk and share their experience. There are only a few quite moments in the workday of a sports coach. Majority of the time they will be taking, explaining, shouting or encouraging the players / athletes, both on and off the field.

Event Planners:
Event planning is the most creative and difficult job on the list. Event planning is a hectic job which includes acquiring permits, budgeting, coordinating transportation, selecting event site, establishing date, security, catering, etc, which only a skilled speaker can handle. Their earnings are directly proportional to the scale on which they organize concerts, weddings, business meetings, etc.

Corporate Fundraisers:
Asking people or organization to denote their hard earned money to a worthy cause is a delicate business. That is the reason why corporate fundraising events are organized and managed by people who can motivate, inspire and influence others, rather than talented salespersons. This job also includes a lot of paper work and a little event management.

Interpreters:
It is a highly specialized profession, ideal for a proficient speaker. An interpreter must be comfortable with reading and writing English, and at least one other language. Demand and salary depends on the specialization and fluency in particular language. Presently there is a huge demand for Middle Eastern, East Asian and Arabic language interpreters around the world. According to Bureau of Logical Statistics this profession will grow at a breath taking speed for the next eight years, with a lot of opportunities in urban areas.

HR (Human Resource) specialist:
As the name indicates this is a job related to human resource management. An HR specialist conducts interviews, recruits employees, train employees, manages employee relationship, and offers guidance regarding company policies and procedures. So, to be responsible in conducting all the above mentioned responsibilities he or she should be bold enough and most probably an extrovert.

Admission Consultant:
The demand for admission consultants have sky rocketed nowadays. As the pursuit to enter popular programs is no longer reserved for graduate school and undergraduate level, presently even pre-schools have become selective with the students they admit. Consultants are hired based on their internal connection with the school or college administration. They help the parents and students in scheduling interviews and school visits; helps them navigate and understand the formalities of admission process, etc.

Fashion Designer:
Fashion designing is the art of application of aesthetics and design to accessories, cloths and more. The assertive, enthusiastic, expressive and energetic nature of extroverts is ideal for a career in fashion designing. In addition, proficient speech skills of an extrovert can help him or her to build rapport with people, understand the trends that people prefer and dislike, earn more tips, and ultimately create a huge client base.

Have a happy learning.

for "8 Simple Ways to Combat Stress at Workplace"


Stress is a common evil that every employee has to face in his day-to-day life. The ever increasing productivity targets, very limited time, struggle to carve out some kind of existence outside of work and economic uncertainties have created a feeling of powerlessness and fear among people.

Here are few tips that can help you to efficiently defeat stress at your workplace, as reported by Kevin on ‘Free $ Wisdom’ website.

1. Take New Responsibilities:
Most of the time stress is a direct result of boredom or lack of desire to work. The only way to overcome such a problem is to take on some new responsibilities that give you an opportunity to venture into new areas and learn new skills. This gives your job a fresh feel and a sense of satisfaction, even if it does not change the job fundamentally.

2. Exercise Regularly:
Exercise is the best and the most efficient way to beat stress. It has a direct positive impact on your general health and also acts as a stress reliever. Regular exercise makes you feel good overall. This good feeling translates into your work and helps to increase your productivity.

3. Set Realistic Goals:
If you achieve your goal, it gives you a sense of satisfaction and pumps the adrenaline in you. Hence it is advisable to always set goals which are sensible. Do not aspire for things that are beyond your limits. This does not mean to dishearten or limit yourself. It is very essential to purely understand your necessities and focus on them.

4. Balanced Diet:
A balanced diet is very essential to re-energize your body and mind. What you eat has a say to your physical stress. You should always eat healthy and nutritious food as healthy food makes your body feel good and gives you the required energy to combat any kind of physical stress.

5. Get Organized:
It is advisable to always plan your work. Doing things in an unsystematic way, disorganizes your daily routine and creates unnecessary stress. You feel worried about the pending work and forthcoming work. Hence it is advisable to make time table and get organized.

6. Learn New Skills:
By learning new skills you can increase your earning potential, have a greater sense of control over your financial position and even prepare yourself for a job in the future. It’s a cure for stress, that’s bought on by a sense of career stagnation.

7. Entertain Yourself:
All work and no play at your workplace, is bound to deteriorate your performance. The daily routine work, whether office work or household work takes a toll on your body and mind. So it is advisable to try and extract some valuable time from your daily responsibilities to indulge in an extracurricular activity such as singing, dancing, listening to music, reading books, following some sport or may be playing some sport. Always try to assess your hidden talent and realize your passion. You are bound to feel the difference.

8. Change Department:
Sometimes the stress you feel at your workplace may be due to the people you work with. Hence transferring to another department could move you into a whole new group of coworkers and help you to combat stress to some extent.

Here are four simple ways that can help you to make the best of your current career, as reported by Stephanie Christenson of Investopedia.

1. Set Your Own Goal:
Every job, even the ones that is completely different from your dream job, provides you an opportunity to learn and improve your inherent skills and values, if you utilize your time and energy efficiently. Set one professional goal every day and try to achieve the objective within least possible time. Keep a track of your progress as you achieve small milestones, and have a running tally of how far have you reached. This activity not only re-energizes your soul, it also re-ignites a sense of satisfaction and provides you with a list of impressive achievements that you can add to your resume.

2. Embrace Each and Every Moment of your Professional Career:
Lack of intent and desire to work may jeopardize your professional career. The only way you can move forward is by enjoying each and every moment of your professional life. Hence it is advisable to have a positive frame of mind, by keeping all the negative thoughts at bay and try to appreciate the potential for new opportunities. When you simply go with the flow and learn to cherish the present moment, amazing things are bound to unfold.

3. Try to integrate your passion and work:
Consider your personal interests, hobbies and ambition, and explore whether the current job presents any opportunity to integrate them. Try to find innovative ways to bind your passion and career together, since the key for success is to make your passion as a part of your career. Embrace the fact that if love your job, you will never have to work a day in your life.

4. Create a Network:
Being sociable and interacting with your colleagues can enhance your enjoyment in an otherwise unsatisfying job. In addition, this can also help you to create an extensive network of peers, which can further boost your future potential and create new employment opportunities. Try to maintain a respectable and positive professional image at your workplace. When you get an opportunity that will expose yourself to other employees of the company such as attending a business outing or networking event, jump on it. As your network expands, you will have access to invaluable database of resources that can help you to land in your dream job within least possible time and efforts.

Being stuck in an unsatisfying job can have a negative impact on your personal and professional life, as you might experience tremendous physiological trauma. Hence, to put up of this agony, it is advisable to find creative ways to enjoy your job and control your thoughts. Try to use the current job as a venue towards empowering your inherent skills, which ultimately leads to success.

for "How to Write a Perfect Email That Gets Response"


Emailing is something for which you get an immediate response if it is very important, especially in the corporate world. This format of communication is also used to save a large amount of time. However, you can get an immediate response for your e-mail only when the message is drafted in the right manner. So, if you have been sending e-mails that are not getting immediate or at least a late response, here are few simple steps you need to follow to get a proper and quick response from the other side, as reported by Kailash Srinivasan on the mensxp website.

1. Know who your target audience are:
It is true that you know very well about your target audience to whom you will send the mail. But many times, even after knowing our target audience people fail in receiving proper response from the other side. So, if you are sending any e-mail to your clients or to your colleagues and boss, the tone of writing the e-mail must be in a formal way. The formal way of writing the e-mail must be like the example given below.

Hello/ Hi Sir,

This is to inform you that………….

Regards,

XYZ

2. Fix the Subject line well:
In any of the e-mails you send, it is the subject line that will be first noticed by your receiver of the e-mail. So, make sure your subject line has to be accurate and purposeful. You need to give a proper subject line that attracts the receiver’s attention immediately and make them to open that e-mail. Subject line can contain about 20 to 25 words every time.

3. You need to know what you want to achieve exactly:
Before sending any e-mail, you need to be clear about what you want to achieve from that e-mail. So, if you understand the purpose of writing that e-mail you can communicate accordingly with the receiver of that e-mail. If you want something exact task to be performed by your receiver, make sure you include that exactly as it is in your e-mail.

4. Keep your e-mail short and simple:
The receiver will not be having that much of free time to sit and read your e-mail every time. In every e-mail they receive, they just want to know the purpose of the e-mail in a short and simple manner. So, every time it is your duty to write the purpose of the e-mail in a short and simple manner that is understandable and saves the receiver’s time as well.

5. Reply on time:
If you want to get an immediate response from your receiver, firstly you need to start sending immediate response for the e-mails you receive. If you become lazy to send an immediate response to the client, next time even he or she will be lethargic to send an immediate reply for your e-mail. So, don’t ever try to be lethargic to reply a e-mail as it can impact on the e-mail you send to the client in the future.

for "8 Benefits of Staying at a Job for 10 Years"


As job hopping has become a common syndrome in the career path of many professionals, it has turned out to be natural that people feel surprised if they see anyone working in a same company for 10 years or more than that.

Though there are quite a few advantages of learning new skills and building new networks in your new job, it is not worthy when you keep changing your profession again and again.

So, if you are curious to know about the benefits of staying at a job [Company] for 10 years or more than that, here are the top 8 ways that can be beneficial for you if you serve in a particular profession for more than 10 years, as reported on the Forbes Website by its contributor David K.Williams.

1. Seniority:
The first and foremost benefit of sticking to a single company for more than 10 years is that it gives you a sense of seniority as you would have seen a lot number of people joining and quitting the job from the time you have joined. There won’t be much necessity to compete against others who have newly joined to achieve a stronger role in the company. There won’t be any necessity to scratch from the beginning to establish yourself in a stronger role in any of the new company you join later.

2. You can acquire leadership opportunities:
It’s obvious when you become a senior at workplace, you can expect leadership opportunities for monitoring the juniors or fresh employees who have recently joined your company [Department]. By monitoring the new comers you can improve your own skills and abilities. Being a leader will also help you in acquiring support from your teammates when needed.

3. Constancy:
If you are planning to change your profession by next year it will turn out to be difficult for you to make any long term plans regarding your office work. So, always a little bit of constancy is required regarding your career and workplace as it might help you to cope more effectively with the stresses that might occur In your rest of the life in the future.

4. Homeownership and Retirement Funds:
It is a known fact that, if you keep changing the professions it just won’t affect your professional life as it also makes a larger impact on your personal life as well. This is because; whenever there is a change in your profession it’s obvious that you need to shift your family to another place where it is closer for your office. So, changing houses from one place to another and changing the schools and colleges of your kids, can turn out be expensive step for you even though you say company manages the shifting expenses, as even they will be having a particular policy regarding this services. Apart from that it might affect your retirement plans as well.

5. Can enjoy bigger benefits:
Many firms are most likely to increase the employees paid time off it they stay in a company for a good period of time [years] with high level of performance. By remaining stable in a profession can increase your chances of bigger benefits while working in a particular company for good amount of years. Apart from that, if you are a high performer, there might be chances given to you to spend some good time with your family and friends for few days away from your work and also achieve your other goals in life in that extra time given to you.

6. Self- Improvement:
If you stay in a particular company for more than 10 years or so, you can allow your colleagues to get to know you in that long period of time. This also can be beneficial for you to trust their advices as you would have spent a good amount of time working with them. So, at this stage even if they find out few faults in the way you work you can improve yourself in those segments by resolving your own weaknesses effectively.

7. Reliability:
If you spend more than 10 years or so in a particular company, definitely the company would have developed a sense of reliability, as they think you can do lot of things in a right manner. If you show up your good job, no doubt you will be respected and trusted for the hard work and success you have bought in for the company.

8. Flexibility:
Employees, who work in a company for a decade or more than that period, would have gone through lots and lots of challenges in an increasing level. This would have helped them to sharpen their skills by reworking on a single project again and again till it gets a perfect shape. It is these employees who would have tried their hand in varied forms of roles at office that would have helped them to find out what they are most passionate about. The only difference in changing departments in the same office and changing the companies is that you would have retained your same position and benefits in the next company, but if you would have just changes the department in the same office it helps you to freely experiment on new things with a lot of support from your seniors as they would have got to know about your talent in a practical manner.

for "Australia to Open Door for Educated Indians"


Riding on an ambitious plan to tap Asian region, Australia is all set to woo highly skilled population from the region including in India in a bid to create an educated, productive work force to boost its economy.

According to minister for Immigration and Citizenship Chris Bowen, the government in its 'Asian Century White Paper' has highlighted the opportunities for the nation's growth by building deeper and stronger links with Asian region.

"Even with the government's unprecedented investment in tertiary education and up-skilling Australians, we need migrants who bring their specialist skills to Australia," he said.

Seven of the top 10 source countries in Australia's 2011–12 migration programme are in the Asian region: India, China, the Philippines, Sri Lanka, Malaysia, South Korea and Vietnam.

The Indian sub-continent is Australia's largest source region of migrants, providing 23 percent of the migration program, while 18.3 percent of migrants come from the north of Asia.

"More than a quarter of our nation's migrants were born in an Asian nation and nearly 1.5 million Australians are fluent in one or more Asian languages, including Mandarin, Cantonese, Vietnamese, Hindi, Punjabi, Indonesian, Korean, Tagalog and Japanese," Bowen said.

"This means that Australia is uniquely placed to strengthen ties with Asian nations."
So the country is "increasingly looking to Asia for skilled migrants who are crucial to the nation's economy and the development of business opportunities in the region", he said.

With Tourism as one of the focus, it was said that new streamlined visa processes will encourage more people from the region to consider Australia as a destination of choice.

"We are making it easier than ever for tourists from the Asian region to visit Australia and contribute to our economic and cultural growth," Bowen said.

"We need to be able to take advantage of the expected increase in regional travel across Asia and the subsequent emerging tourist markets," he added.

To facilitate this, the Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC) is expanding its network of service and delivery partners to support online visa lodgement, multiple entry visas and longer visa validity periods.

"Visitors from China are of particular focus and the 2011 Memorandum of Understanding to strengthen tourism cooperation between our countries will support a growing travel market," Bowen said.

Students from abroad boost Australia's economy by billions every year.

"We want to ensure that future leaders in the Asian region who are educated at our world-class institutions have positive experiences, fostering people-to-people links and supporting the cultural ties that protect our nation's interests in the region," Bowen said.

Streamlining the student visa assessment process will make it easier for people who want to study here, while post-study work rights for bachelor degree and PhD graduates will encourage skilled people to contribute to Australia's development, he said.

"He said that the rise of Australia's close neighbours has the potential to greatly benefit the nation over the coming century.

"The Gillard (Julia) Government's improvements to our migration systems and visa processes will mean that we are well prepared to welcome people from across Asia who will contribute to our economy and culture."

for "Here's What Recruiters Check in Your Resume in 6 Seconds"


People often spend days, weeks or sometimes even months working on their resume. They generally fiddle with fonts, wordings and very cautiously get the resume into the desired shape for their dream job. Then the recruiter looks at the resume merely for seconds before taking the decision about their potential employee.

Have you ever wondered why some resumes / CV’s end up at the top, while majority end up at the bottom of the pile? Did you know that the recruiters spend merely 6 seconds before making an initial fit or no fit decision on the candidates, as reported by the TheLadders survey? Of course, most of the candidates would like to know precisely what kind of significant information a recruiter is looking for in those decisive seconds. While there had been numerous unreliable theories on what recruiters are looking for in a CV/ resume, until now there has not been any reliable research based evidence.

Fortunately, earlier this year TheLadders carried out a comprehensive study using a scientific technique called ‘eye tracking’ and monitored 30 professional recruiters eye movement over a period of 10 weeks. This study involved recording, analyzing and mapping where and how long the recruiters focused while assessing a resume / CV for the job offered. There were several crucial findings from the study, which may help a candidate to design superior resumes / CV’s. These finding are as shown below:

1.Recruiters spend merely 6 seconds to evaluate an individual’s CV / resume


2.This study using ‘gaze tracking’ technology showed that recruiters spent nearly 80 percent of their time evaluating the following information-

*. Name

*. Current title / company

*. Previous title / company

*. Previous position start and end dates

*. Current position start and end dates

*. Education

Beyond these six key data points, recruiters scanned the resume / CV for keywords that matched the current open position. Since the decision was greatly dependent on the above mentioned six key data points, rest of the individual’s details became fillers and had little or no impact on the decision making process.

So, as these factors matters the most for the potential employer, they would ask this question for their possible employee [candidate].

Have a happy learning.

Questions You Should Never Ask in a Job Interview

1. Anything Related to Salary or Benefits

“Company benefits [and salary negotiations] don’t come into play until an offer has been extended,” says Kohut. The same principle applies to sick time and vacation days. It’s best to avoid any question that sounds like you assume you already have the position—unless, of course, your interviewer brings it up first.

2. Questions That Start With “Why?”

Why? It’s a matter of psychology. These kinds of questions put people on the defensive, says Kohut. She advises repositioning a question such as, “Why did the company lay off people last year ?” to a less confrontational, “I read about the layoffs you had. What’s your opinion on how the company is positioned for the future?”

3. “Who is Your Competition?”

This is a great example of a question that could either make you sound thoughtful—or totally backfire and reveal that you did zero research about the company prior to the interview, says Jacqui Barrett-Poindexter. Before asking any question, determine whether it’s something you could have figured out yourself through a Google search. If it is, a) don’t ask it and b) do that google search before an interview.

4. “How Often Do Reviews Occur?” Maybe you’re concerned about the company’s view of your performance, or maybe you’re just curious, but nix any questions about the company’s review or self-appraisal policies. “It makes us think you’re concerned with how often negetive feedback might be delievered " says Kohut. Keep your confidence intact, and avoid the topic altogether—or at least until you receive an offer.

5. “May I Arrive Early or Leave Late as Long as I Get My Hours In?”

Even if you make it clear that you’re hoping for a flexible schedule to accommodate a legitimate concern such as picking up your kids from daycare, Barrett-Poindexter advises against this question. “While work-life balance is a very popular concern right now, it’s not the most pressing consideration for a hiring decision-maker,” she says. “Insinuating early on that you’re concerned about balancing your life may indicate to your employer that you are more concerned about your needs and less concerned about the company’s.”

6. “Can I Work From Home?”

Unless it was implied in the initial job descripttion, don’t bring it up. “Some companies will allow you to work from home on occasion once they see what a productive employee you are,” says Kohut. But an interview isn’t the time to be asking for special favors. Right now your top priority is selling them on you first.

7. “Would You Like to See My References?”

“Interviewing is a lot like dating,” says Barrett-Poindexter. “It’s important to entice with your value and attract them to call you for the next ‘date.’” Offering up your references too soon may hint at desperation. Plus, you don’t want to run the risk of overusing your references.

8. How Soon Do You Promote Employees?

“An individual asking this question may come off as arrogant and entitled,” says recruiter Josh Tolan.

9. Do I Get My Own Office?

This is an uncomfortable one, says Tolan. Of course you may wonder about it, but will something like this really play into whether you accept a career opportunity or not? If so, he says, it may be time to rethink your priorities.

10. Will You Monitor My Social Networking Profiles?

While a valid concern in today’s culture, this is something best left unsaid. “It gives the impression you have something to hide,” says Tolan. Play it safe and don't post anything (especially disparaging things) about your company, co-workers, or employers on Facebook, Twitter—or anywhere on the internet, really. And yes, even if you’re not “friends” with anyone at work. These kinds of things have a way of getting around.

General Tips To Overcome An Interview

So what if you are not a mountaineer. Or a keen hiker. You still cannot treat your interview like a careless morning trot along a jogger's path. Your jaw-jaw at the interview table is nothing less than a cautious climb up a mountain trail--which begins around your early childhood and meanders through the years at the academia before reaching a new summit in your career. And as you retrace your steps down memory lane make sure that you post flags at important landmarks of your life and career, so that you can pop them before the interview panel scoops them out of you. You don't want to be at the receiving end, do you? Face the panel, but don't fall of the chair in a headlong rush-and-skid attempt to tell your story. Take one step at a time. Don't go into unnecessary detail about how you aced your business math midterm in your sophomore year at accounting school. Here are a few preparation tips from the Team of Freshersworld.com that books on interviews sometimes overlook. Remember, as a fresher you do not have anything to loose but to gain. TYPICAL QUESTIONS THAT AN INTERVIEWER WOULD ASK

1.Tell me about yourself The most often asked question in interviews.

You need to have a short statement prepared in your mind. Be careful that it does not sound rehearsed. Limit it to work/Study-related items unless instructed otherwise. Talk about things you have done well at your college and how you wanted to perform in the first job.

2. Why Should We Employ You?

For this question, your answer should list out strengths that you feel are relevant to the job. Given below are some answers which could help you with your answers. However, structure them to suit your requirements.

I have good co-ordination skills Good analytical skills

I can persuade people to see my point of view, and get the work done

My greatest asset is my ability to motivate people

Even during emergencies, I do not loose my cool

I have good entrepreneurial skills

I have consistently met my deadlines and targets

Can say “no” to people when required to do so!

I am very co-operative with my sub-ordinates, and would like to see them grow

I am a good team player I am very flexible, and have the ability to work hard under difficult work conditions

I have the experience and knowledge relevant to this job (Here, give appropriate details and examples)

3. Do You Have Offers From Other Companies ?

This is of course a difficult question to answer. Obviously, you must have applied to other companies if you are looking for a job or would have some offers from other companies already. Therefore, do not lie that you have not. However, you are on thin ice here! The interviewer could be checking your honesty. On the other hand, he/she may also be trying to find out how focused you are - are you applying randomly, or is there a well-planned strategy?

Whatever your answer, it should match your career goals.

4. What Salary Are You Expecting?

Try not to get into salary details early in the interview. If pressed, you could say that it all depends on the job, and would like to talk about it after a job offer. Say this in a convincing tone. In case you are asked this question in your latter interviews, give a direct answer. Do not sound apologetic while quoting the figure you have in mind.

SALARY EXPECTATIONS :

1. How much do you expect?

If you have done your homework, you would know how much other people in similar jobs are paid. Quote the range upfront.

2. How much do you think you are worth?

Work out how much you should be paid, given the market value of the job and your skills. If you can bring some extra skills to the table, do not hesitate to ask for more than the market value.

3. What kind of a culture are you comfortable with?

It is better to be frank about your preferences. Your interviewer will get a clear idea about your expectations.

4. Which is more important to you-salary, perks or growth opportunities?

This one will reveal the real you. So be sure what you are going to say. Above all, be true to yourself. If you think this is a negotiation move, then say clearly that you will never sell yourself short.

5. What do you know about our company?

Do not give your opinions about the company. Stick to reported facts that you have gathered from newspapers and so on. Talk about the product portfolio, size, income, and market perceptions of the company. Also it is better to refer details about each company before going for the interview from Freshersworld.com or PlacementWeek.com

6. Why should we choose you over someone else?

Talk clearly about problems that you have solved in your College/Project Team and highlight the quality required.

7. Your qualifications are excellent, but you may be overqualified for the position we have to offer?

Point out that more experience can never be a drawback. If you are multi-skilled, then highlight the fact that a company on the fast-track needs multi-skilled people. It needs people within different departments to work together. Also emphasise that the company's future growth will be an exponential function of your experience.

QUESTIONS YOU SHOULD ASK :

Interviewers usually round off by giving you an opportunity to ask questions. Treat it like a welcome opportunity.

You could ask questions like.

a) Tell me about your company.

b) Now that I have outlined my career goals, do you think you can offer me the opportunities I need?

c) What kind of training and learning can I expect in your company?

d) Describe the work culture and the management style of your company?

e) What is the long-term vision of your company?

As a fresher, current position and status can impact the way you are interviewed. Fresh Out of College

The basis on which you will be judged is your academic background, family background, and interests.

If looking for your first job, ensure that your previous experience, even if it is part-time, is noticed.

Mention projects or responsibilities you may have undertaken. This will indicate your area of aptitude.

You should be willing to put in regular hours, in line with the company's policies.

The interviewer needs to know whether you can be punctual and put in full-time work.

In case you have applied for the post of management trainee, you should display an ability to adapt, and indicate all-round interests.

Moreover, you should have good interpersonal skills. You should be enthusiastic to learn, and show commitment towards the organization, as the company will be spending a lot on your training.

Bring with you :

a) Copies of your resumes

b) References and letters of recommendations.

First Impressions :

There is a common saying that minds are made up within the first 5 minutes of an interview.

So keep in mind these important first impression indicators.

Walk in the door as if you already work there, carry yourself as though you feel perfectly comfortable with the situation.

Arrive on time or a little early.

In the waiting area, politely tell the receptionist who you are meeting and in a friendly way, ask where you should sit.

Take slow, deep breaths to help you remain calm and focused.

When introduced to the interviewer, have a firm, but not painful, handshake. Smile.

Have good posture when sitting or standing.

Introduce yourself in a relaxed, confident manner.

Have a well-groomed, professional appearance.

Project a feeling of confidence.

Bring extra copies of your resume, some thing to write on and something to write with. http://www.freshersworld.com/interview/interview.htm

"Check Out How to Avoid Being Too Nice at Work"

Every human being would have adapted the quality of pleasing others at some point of their life. It might be because it is very natural that people would want approvals from someone. So, to get those approvals they tend to please those people to get their work done both in their personal as well as professional life. Though someone doesn’t play any vital role in our life, they might be a very essential source to achieve something you desire. But being sometime too nice at work is also not done as sometimes that care might be misused by others. So, if you are curious to know about how to stop being too nice at work, here is few essential ways you need to follow given by Kailash Srinivasan of the mensxp website.

1. Don’t be too polite:
If you become too polite there are more chances of people taking advantage of that politeness most of the time. So, at the workplace, many times you will be burdened with others job just because you are a fast worker. You will be asked to work on the projects assigned to others to avoid delaying the work. So, at this situation, it is better to avoid or reject that work politely instead of putting others work on your head. If someone turns rude upon you take them to one side and talk to them instead of yelling on them in the public like they do. Take them to a side and say, “You are not supposed to talk to me in that manner as it is an unacceptable behavior”.

2. Don’t try to be a people-pleaser:
Are you a person who starts pleasing others who are around you at workplace? Are you are person accepting to complete others work, even if you don’t want to? Are you scared that, if you reject the task you might be fired or they might think badly about you? This kind of emotion would have been developed in your family, and then slowly it would have been established in your office work as well. So, if you think this emotional factor is hurting your sentiments, you need to start setting up boundaries. If you fail to create your own boundary, people can use you at any point of time.

3. Be confident on your own self:
Don’t lose out your own personality just to please others by acting according to their wish. At the same time don’t become malicious by being too reserved as well. You need to balance between how you should be and what others want you to be. It is left to you to make a clear decision in such circumstances.

1. Be a Champ than being a complainer:
If you become a winner in your life, then you can be a very good problem-solver than being a complainer every time. If you keep on complaining about the work or your colleagues every time to your boss, it makes them feel annoyed about you every time. As most of the boss appreciates employees who solve their work related problems on their own, try to avoid taking all the problems to the boss. But, if you are facing too much problem don’t hinder to inform them about the problem you are facing.

2. Start publicizing your hard work:
It is true that everyone will be finding this task a bit difficult to accomplish thinking it is very embarrassing to share with others how hard you worked. But if you want to be a professional with long term productivity you need to use this tactic to survive in the job. You need to fetch everyone’s attention at the workplace towards your work whenever necessary, especially of your boss. So, if you are wondering how to start with it, you can start it by directing and bringing others victory to the limelight of others. This method automatically, makes them feel about your skills. For example, if you are working as an event organizer, surely your duty would be convincing the clients. So, if you be successful with that task surely you are bringing in some profit for your company.

3. Bring out your own performance review:
Though this method sounds as a bold move, you have to do it. You need to review your own article and show up your performance to your boss, note him about all the top achievements you have achieved for this period along with examples for each of them. Inform him about your plan on specific areas of development. For developing those areas make sure you have enough relevant resource and support for accomplishing it.

Happy learning.
