Firstly, I would like to describe or define what is a social media,many of them may be know that,but I would just like to mention that. WHAT IS SOCIAL MEDIA? Social Media is a platform,computer-based technology that facilitates the sharing of ideas,thoughts and information through the building of virtual networks and communities.  Social media originated as a way to interact with friends and family but was later adopted by businesses that wanted to take advantage of a popular new communication method to reach out to customers.

How to Prepare to be a Professional: Student Story

As college students, we realize attaining a degree is vital to our careers. What many of us might not realize, though, is that our future employers will expect us to have skills that aren’t always found in our course requirements. For example, I have taken some additional steps, from joining extracurricular activities to pursuing internships, to prepare myself for my future career in business.
Here are some tips to help you learn some of the skills you need beyond your classroom studies: 

Do your research

Your first step is to spend some time researching what specific job opportunities might interest you and what kinds of skills they will require. It can be a little overwhelming, especially if you have numerous options and an open mind, but the right position is out there!

Practice communicating professionally

It is not appropriate to use abbreviations or slang in professional communications. Also, since email is such a widely-used tool for communication, you should create a professional email address if you do not have one already. This should consist of a variation of your first and last name; silly nicknames are not appropriate.

Start building your professional network

LinkedIn is a great tool for connecting with other professionals in your desired field. Here’s how you can make your LinkedIn profile stand out:
  1. Carefully fill out each section with information about your education, work experience and career interests. Avoid skipping sections, as all the information you provide will be valuable for networking.
  2. Your profile picture should be professional (i.e. professional dress, de-cluttered background, no selfies!).
  3. Once you have a complete profile, start connecting with people! Make sure you have plenty of quality connections, so you can re-connect with them about future opportunities.

Join appropriate extra-curricular activities

Throughout my college career, I have immersed myself in some fantastic extra-curricular activities that have provided me with hands-on experience in my field and led to some great networking opportunities. My experience with DECA, an organization for college students interested in marketing and finance, has helped prepare me for my future career in business.
If you don’t know which organizations are right for you, reach out to your career advisor to see what campus offerings might align with your professional goals. Your involvement in these organizations will help you build your resume and will set you apart from other job candidates.

Get experience

Jobs and internships are a great way to gain experience in your field. They can also help you determine if a certain career is right for you. Working at Kay Jewelers, I am getting more experience in sales. This has helped open my eyes to another career path that I could pursue in the future. While I highly recommend searching for an internship opportunity, there are jobs out there that can provide valuable experience as well. Both options can be very worthwhile if you take the time to find the right opportunities.
Start your internship or job search by inquiring about opportunities on campus or talking with your career advisor. You can also try websites like Snag-a-Job or to easily search for jobs or internship postings.
You’re on the right track to a successful future, but it’s important to remember that preparing for your future entails more than just walking across the stage on graduation day. With some extra effort, you’ll be even more prepared to start your career!

Doctrine of Notional Extension under the Workmen Compensation Act, 1923

  There is no problem in detecting that the accident occurred in the course of employment when a workman is injured in the working place and in the working hour and doing his duty. The problem arises when these elements do not coincide together. But a workmen if injured just near the work premises or just before joining the work or in the way to work problem arises. To address this kind of problem and giving some kind of relief to the workmen the theory of notional extension evolved. “As a rule, the employment of a workman does not commence until he has reached the place of employment and does not continue when he has left the place of employment, the journey to and from the place of employment being excluded. It is now well-settled, however, that this is subject to the theory of notional extension of the employer’s premises so as to include an area which the workman passes and repasses in going to and in leaving the actual place of work. There may be some reasonable extension in bot

Peace - A Way Of Life

To be peaceful is the sign of a conqueror.  We have often heard people saying 'follow the path of peace and you will be happy', 'preach peace' and many other phrases emphasising on a way of living- Peace. But what is it really about?  With reference of the holy Bible, peace is defined with notions like  totality or completeness, success, fulfillment, wholeness, harmony, security and well being.  The definition of peace changes with mindsets of people. For one, it is a sense of accomplishment, non- violence for another, salvation to a few and a lot more to others. But what peace exactly is? And how can we attain it? Peace is acceptance. A vision of seeing things and extracting optimism out of it. Peace makes life easier. To be satisfied is what peace is. To be able to look back at your life and accept all its darks and jewels is what peace feels like. Peace is a state of mind where your soul feels calm, free from the dirt of hatred, negativity, criticism, inferiority and
