Day 1

  1. 1. Workbook Activity: Students often find themselves at a loss of words when they need to introduce themselves to the interviewer. Trainers often get the query around the vocabulary enhancement. However the more important thing to remember here is, that more than the knowledge of the word it is the usage that creates the impact. The following activity is designed to bridge the gap between knowledge and usage. Listed below you would find words that describe the characteristic traits of personality. Refer to the dictionary for the meanings of these words. For further clarification, if required, consult the trainer. Once clear with the meaning, try and associate these words with your own personality. Try and use as many words as possible. While describing your characteristic traits by the help of these words, cite an example to further clarify the meaning. For example: “I believe I am suitable for this job because I am prudent”. Meaning of the word: Wise/Far-sighted. Clarification: “ My profile included interaction with the customers, during my last industrial training. So I took an innovative approach and decided along with the other executives to wear a smiley batch. This didn’t only make the office environment pleasant for the customers, but also made it less stressful for the employees. “ It is encouraged that students use as many words as possible. They could choose to use the same list of words to describe their family members, friends, relatives, movies, role models, favorite companies, places, et al.
