Recently I hired an intern in my company. A fresh mind with enthusiasm
and the can do approach but after one week, today I am feeling the dire
need to first inform all the candidates who appeared in the interviews on
how to develop work related skills, because what we learn at our
educational institutions is a bit different from what we do at work. Yes it
applies but in a different way, as to how we professionals call it, practical is
different than theory!

your boss but also lets you stand out from your peers. These are the
essential basic skills that set you on a path to profound professional

daily reading habit not only provides you with essential
information but also improves your vocabulary, thus your
communication skills gets better and also keeps you abreast
with any changes that are or going to happen in an industry.

Conferences and seminars are a great way to get your hands on
latest knowledge and network with people from the same
industry. Avid professionals know the importance of networking
and they make an effort to do it through conferences. If you
don’t have much time to travel internet still also offers a great
way to attend them; Webinars!

Maintaining a blog will not only help you kill free time and make it
useful by contributing to the society in a good way. When you right and
express you not only improve your writing skills but also comes in you
the story telling power and your words teaches you to persuade people
through them. Not to forget the fame and fortune blogging can bring to
you in the long run, it has evolved into a separate industry now and
bloggers around the globe are earning a fortune through it.
