  • We were born on dis beautiful planet
  • We started studying
  • Kept on studying and are still studying
  • Very soon many of us will be searching and applying for jobs
  • We’ll be happy if got our dream job and sad if not……..which one u want to be?
  • If u think ur knowledge from study alone will get u job then u might end up being sad, because…
  • And we have to accept it
  • Here’s a list of things you need to be well prepared with before you apply for a job. Aptitude tests are usually conducted from our basic school time studies, so coming to group discussions, what r they, we’ll learn soon. Interview tips are covered by other groups and at the end documents that you need to submit will be discussed later during the presentation
  • So u r wondering what is a group discussion, lets see wotit is
  • As the name suggests it’s a group of people discussing something. Candidates are divided into groups of 8 to 12 people. Each group is given a topic to discuss upon
  • Starting the discussion: There is a strong feeling in GD that a person who speaks first has better chances for getting selected.Before starting, make sure to have some basic knowledge about the topicGiving the introduction allows you to begin the discussion from any point set a tone for others to follow. There is no use in being the first speaker giving irrelevant details Starting the talk alone does not enable selection, but fetches you more marks. Communication</strong>: This is one of the main parameter that shall be looked at.</p> <ul> <li>Practice saying sentences to yourself & ask ‘<em>Am I understandable?</em>’ </li> <li><font color="#ff0000">Speak slowly</font>.Speaking fast will increase rate of mistakes. </li> <li>Even though you are well versed in the topic, it will be worthless if not expressed properly. </li> <li>Use simple, easy to understand words without any grammatical errors while forming sentences. </li> <li>Read <a title="improve english language" href="http://www.bankexamsindia.com/2011/05/how-to-improve-english-knowledge.html" target="_blank">english</a> newspapers or watch english news channels for proper usage of sentences. </li> </ul> <p><strong>Listen</strong>: ‘<em>I have spoken.Let me take rest’</em> is the mindset of many candidates.</p> <ul> <li>By listening to others, you can provide a new viewpoint, reply for a question or disagree with the other person`s argument. </li> <li>Repeating the same thoughts already said can be avoided. </li> <li><font color="#ff0000">Do not sit quietly</font> after your turn.Increase your marks through active participation in the conversations. </li> </ul> <h3>What Not to Do:</h3> <ul> <li><img style="border-width: 0px; display: inline; margin-left: 0px; margin-right: 0px;" title="not to do in group discussion" alt="not to do in group discussion" src="prepare-for-group-discussion-tips_files/not2520to2520do2520in2520group2520discussion255B7255D.jpg" width="98" align="right" border="0" height="114"><font color="#ff0000">Don't dominate</font> the discussion.Give chance to everyone. </li> <li>Do not interrupt the other member`s speech.Wait till they complete </li> <li>Stick to the topic & provide ideas only related to it in your speech </li> <li>In trying to prove your point, don't provide false news </li> <li>Do not keep quiet for long.It sends a wrong signal to the selector. </li> </ul> <h3>How to Prepare for GD:</h3> <p>The topics for group discussion is <u>not taken from textbooks</u> but from the real world.It could a recent news story or a recently debated issue in parliament or even about a film.</p> <ul> <li>Preparing for GD is similar to <a title="how to prepare for general awareness" href="http://www.bankexamsindia.com/2011/10/how-to-prepare-for-general-banking.html" target="_blank">general awareness</a> preparation. </li> <li>GK books, English news magazines & editorials in newspapers are some good sources of current events.We personally recommend candidates to
  • They want the best
