Pocket that internship

Your years as a student are the most critical years of your life — building blocks to a great future. Simply focusing your student’s years working on getting good grades is just seeing half the picture. Internships, volunteering and practical experiences are what set you apart from the crowd much more than good grades. Most students today are unaware of the fact that they can find a paid internship in a foreign university, and even if they do know, they do not bother applying, believing the field to be too crowded. Intern Abroad This Summer will show you how to hustle your way into a great foreign internship and use the internships as a springboard to find that dream job, make personal connections that last a lifetime and travel the world as a student. The author Aniket Singh answers  queries on how students can land that dream internship, create a compelling resume, cover letter and application kit besides offering many other valuable tips. Aniket, an alumnus of IIT Madras, currently works at Apple at their Headquarters in Cupertino, California. This book is a must have for all students aspiring to take control of their desired future. Get prepared for the trip of your lifetime, and learn how to succeed with your internship.

Leadership formula

The way we interact and talk to each other creates the difference between success and failure. Based on this important factor motivational as well as leadership coach Sameer Dua sets out to present the perfect formula for effective conversational skills. You don’t ‘become’ by knowing more, you ‘become’ by shifting your practices, and in case of leadership, by shifting and creating new conversational practices. Dua’s book is not about understanding new concepts, but about learning new practices to shift ‘who you be’, moment to moment. Enriched with his practical experience the book brings practical wisdom in an easy-to-understand format. The different situations mentioned are easily identifiable in day-to-day work situations. Simplicity and direct approach are the strong points of this book which will be a useful reference book for anyone with a job.
