10 Tips to Screw-up for Dreading Job Interview

Interviews have always been dreadful as it not only test an individual's knowledge, but also test a person's ability to use right knowledge at the right place. It was found in a research that-- no matter how experienced one is but approximately 80% of candidates suffer from Interview phobia.

Interview scenario may differ from person-to-person depending upon his/her experience & expertise, but there are a few simple,  yet really helpful tips that help you combat nerve racking interview situation.

 1. Stop Fearing Rejection:
If you are looking for a job, then before considering any of the facet like- your skills, type of job or organization you are looking for, personal grooming etc., just overcome your fear of rejection. Simply by accepting the fact that this  is just an interview, but not an end to professional journey could help one stay calm & positive throughout the interview process.

2. Know Yourself & Your Skills
Yes! It is very important to well understand yourself,  your skills, your qualities, your expert areas and how well you can serve an organization. Accordingly, looking for a job profile that well-suit your interest and qualification will automatically smoothen  your course of interview.

 3.  Never Exaggerate Your CV
Thinking of fabricating your CV to impress the interviewer? No, never ever fabricate your CV as the interviewer who has been interviewing hundred of candidates is more smart & will easily find out the fudge, creating a blunder for you. So, always be honest.

4.  Be Well-Presentable
The first impression is the last impression. So always dress in formal attire for an interview, get in the interview room with a slight smile on your face and be confident. Also, always remember to follow basic etiquette, for example- always ask permission for entering the room, wait a few seconds to be invited to sit down and more.

5. Punctuality
Always arrive early to the interview venue as punctuality is something that not only helps you through the interview, but is advantageous if practiced in everyday life. Furthermore arriving interview venue 15 minutes early can help you settle down and relax.

6.  Research the Company Before Interview
Career experts always suggest to research a company before you head in for an interview. Prior investigation of an organization will automatically raise your bar high as you will be familiar with requisite company details like its products, competitors etc.

7.  Prepare Probable Questions Beforehand
Jot-down the list of probable questions & their answers, and rehearse answers well before heading for an interview. If needed ask for help from experienced friends. Trust me (sharing this from experience) serious execution of this exercise can help you find answers for most of the Questions.

8.  Never Ever Argue with Interviewer
Whether you are trying to justify your point or anything like that, it is advisable to never ever step into any kind of argument with Interviewer during interview. Always remember to be precise with answers, as it will also keep you away from an argument. In case you don't know any answer, simply say "I don't know".

9.  Salary Struggle
When it comes to salary, demand for realistic hike considering your experience and industry benchmark. In case of freshmen kindly do your homework well before requesting salary.

10. Conclude on a Positive Note

No matter how hard the interview episode has been, make sure to conclude on a positive & cordial note.

Japanese government to provide training to 30,000 Indian engineers

Toyota India collaborates with the Government of Japan under a 'Manufacturing Skill Transfer Promotion Programme' to reinforce the manufacturing base of India and contribute to "Make in India" and "Skill India" missions. Envisioned to reach the notched-up heights, India is leisurely ascending towards greater growth by generating as well as bringing a plethora of opportunities from outside the country. The Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship, Government of India (MSDE) and Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, Government of Japan (METI) has inked Memorandum of Cooperation (MoC) over a "Manufacturing Skill Transfer Promotion Programme" on November 11.

As a part of this MoC, the Japanese government under a program of Toyota Kirloskar Motor will train 30,000 Indian Engineers for the next 10 years with Japanese style manufacturing skills and practices which will strengthen the manufacturing core of India. The first three such institutes will start next summer in Gujarat, Karnataka and Rajasthan. 

According to reports, the company said that Toyota’s skill development initiatives are aimed to contribute to the ‘Skill India’ mission by bridging the gap between the country’s rapidly-growing industrial sector and availability of highly skilled workforce.

The selected engineers under this training program will be exposed to the Toyota way of manufacturing called the 'Monozukuri' and familiarized with the global concepts of 'Lean Manufacturing' or Kaizen Genchi Genbutsu.

International Folk Festival to promote Foreign Culture

International Folk Festival to promote foreign culture and introduce cultural competence to the Chandigarh University students.

 Written by Anne-Sophie

Art is often used as a medium for introducing a culture. Culture is beyond what defines a nation. It is a set of beliefs, values and traditions shared by a particular group of people in which they recognize themselves. In a country like India, there is no such thing as the “Indian” culture. India is a very diverse environment with various and very distinctive cultures mixed on a same ground. Punjabis, Hindus, Sikhs, Nepalese diaspora... all living on the same land but offering a large collection of songs, music, dance, traditions, practices and values unique to their own culture.

           At Chandigarh University (CU), we are proud to be an international campus and we are excited to display the various range of culture present on our ground. This was the purpose of the 6th International Folk Festival held on November 14th. CU guests of honour, a troupe of Mexican artists, shared the stage with artists from Bhutan, Thailand, Nepal and India as well, and performed songs and dances which offered us a taste of their home culture.

            Representing one’s culture and being represented is important for people as this is the highlight of their belonging to a specific group of people. Andrea, a Mexican student at CU, mentioned that while seeing the Mexican performance, she “felt like home”. To her, this performance was a way for Indians and other internationals to “see a part of the culture through which someone recognizes you.” AndrĂ©, Brazilian intern at CU, explained that folklore is also a way to understand where people come from and learn about their traditions and roots. In his mind, what makes Mexicans who they are today are those happy dances and colourful dresses that were exhibited.


         If not a problem of feeling part of a community, being exposed to a different culture is a matter of acculturate ourselves and others around us. I, French intern living in India, am exposed to a culture diametrically opposed to mine. I had to re-learn how to dress, behave, be open-minded and understand Indian’s culture and values in order to make my way every day. Ground zero. I start my journey by erasing all I know about India and just throw myself in the Indian jungle. New English, new way of working but same smile. Being culturally aware of those challenges is the key to work with people from diverse cultural background and achieve organizational objectives. However, to most people on campus, it sounds challenging to deal with international students. We are stared at, face language barrier, shyness, loneliness and most of all we are far from home.

            Having those short episodes of cultural competence and cultural exposure are as important to foreigners as to the hosting country. Cultural exchanges are the most fulfilling experiences for going global, thing that every country is nowadays facing. Caucasians, Hispanics, Blacks, Asians... We are all worth talking to more than been talking about.

Light Bulbs to be the Next Hackers’ Target

Article by Anne-Sophie, French, Intern at Chandigarh University, India

In a world depending more and more on technology and Internet of Things (IoT), hackers have become always more creative when it comes to collect personal data. Giving that everyone still remembers the hack of Yahoo in 2014, when at least 5OO millions users personal information were stolen, hacking has moved forward and seem to not be limited to companies and organizations anymore. In fact, new studies report the weaknesses of IoT and the open way for hackers to put personal information at risk. Researchers demonstrated with an experiment that it is possible to take control of Philips Hue bulbs from outside with a drone flying up to 350m away.

            Meant to facilitate everyday life, the IoT are shown to be an open door to individuals personal data. Smart devices such as light bulbs are connected through a mesh network sending messages to each other and are bridged to communicate with the Portal on Internet and Apps. Hackers take collect personal data by introducing a computer worm into the system giving them free access to all the information shared on one’s Internet connection.

            Philips has communicated that the company is working on fixing this issue of protection of data. However, it is just the beginning for IT and IoT. Green Nanotechnologies being actively introduced to India and Chandigarh University student this week, anticipate those security weaknesses while developing and introducing clean and sustainable technology would be a step forward fighting those cyber attack. Integrity is not innate merely a cause worth to be fought for.

Air pollution level in Delhi alarmingly High

Article by Anne-Sophie, French, Intern at Chandigarh University, India

Last Friday, on the 4th of November, Delhi witnessed for two days the worse smog the city as known in 17 years. Besides the celebration of Diwali and its firecrackers overuse, experts are blaming the lack of governments involvement to fight pollution, stubble burnings in Punjab and Haryana, and the increasing number of vehicles on the roads. We could ask ourselves where is the place of Chandigarh in that alarming pollution degradation and what role Chandigarh has played on the pollution regulation post-celebration.

            With a PM10 (Particular Matter of 10 micrometers or less) at 229 against 110 for Chandigarh, Delhi reached the sorry state of being the most polluted city in the world. Authorities were forced to take emergency measures and limit outdoor exposures to children and vulnerable persons. The increasing level of pollution is related to a doubling of the population in Delhi and greater areas in the last 15 years. This demographic expansion consequently resulted on a multiplication of vehicles on the road, as polluting as ever. This dramatic scenario could have been anticipated by a stronger political will to regulate and implement policies regarding the environment, but also reversed if residents of India were willing to change their lifestyle habits and raise awareness on environmental issues surrounding them.

            Not blaming Delhi only for the deterioration of its pollution, stubble burnings in the region of Punjab and Haryana has played an important role in the pic of pollution. Even though the government bans the crop-burning as a mean for farmers to clear fields for the next crop, this cost efficient tradition is repeatedly used in those regions, feeding the already existing smog surrounding the city.

            Due to its geographical position and its lighter number of industries and vehicles, Chandigarh woke up in a smoggy atmosphere which dispersed rapidly the following days thanks to the wind. The windy region of Chandigarh was announced to help clear up the air in Punjab, Haryana till Delhi.

                                                              Video by BBC News
            India presenting an infinite potential to become one of the best nation from its cultural and ethnic diversity, political stability, advance technology and so more, there is an international concern regarding the pollution is this developing country. Changing lifestyle habits toward more ecologic ones, takes time and is a process to be taken steps by steps. Raising awareness is the key to involve people into the process and educate them on the right behaviour to adopt to show them the right way. At a larger scale, government and business should develop sustainable solutions and keep implementing existing ones such as the biomass power plants, started in 2005 but abandoned in 2013.

My Diwali as an Expat Anne-Sophie

Anne-Sophie, French, 25 and freshly land off to start my internship in the Branding department at
Chandigarh University, India. Graduating from a Master in Intercultural and International Communication, I choose to come to India to embrace the cultural diversity and innovation technology that India offers to a young westerner that I am. First time in India, there were no better time to arrive than during the most important Indian holidays, Diwali.

Freshly land off to start my internship in India that Diwali holidays are about to start. Even though I had never heard about Diwali, I could read the excitement on people’s face; going home for this 5 days holiday was all they were talking about. I listen, do some research about that Diwali people talk about and even fortunately, get invited to spend the holiday in my co-worker’s family in Dehradun, a medium Indian city – medium scaled in India equivalent to a large scaled city in Europe. After all, “we are 1.2 billion people here”.

            At first, I thought Diwali was a holy holiday, comparable to Christmas or Easter holidays in Western countries, where family would gather and celebrate for dinner on Diwali day. I was as close and as far from the real meaning of this holiday to Indians. Diwali, also called Deepavali, is the most important religious celebration in India, and even among Indian diasporas all around the world. 

During this celebration, clay lamps are lightened in and out homes in order to allow the inner light to protect them from spiritual darkness. Originally a Hindu harvest festival, the celebration extended to businesses and to all Indian communities, regardless of their religion. There are different interpretations of Diwali according to the religion and the regions, but it all come out to the victory of good over evil. In northern India, where I celebrated my Diwali, the Hindu community celebrates the return of Rama to Ayodhya. King Ravana, after stealing Rama’s wife, banished him. It is after 14 years of exile that Rama came back to defeat Ravana. To celebrate his triumph, the residents of Ayodhya lightened rows (avali) of clay lamps (deepa). 

 The family I celebrated Diwali with is a Nepalese family. However, they are celebrating Diwali as any other families. I have been welcomed in the most generous way and took part of the celebration as their own. We started arraying clay lamps around the house and hang some flowers. Then we draw the traditional rangoli by the doorstep with coloured sand. On Diwali day, the whole family gathered at a house where Nepalese artists danced and sang to worship Lord Ganesha and Goddess Lakshmi. While playing with firecrackers and fireworks, family and friends come and go from house to house to feast and celebrate.

 Even though in my Western culture we celebrate holy holidays with family gatherings and feasts, the Indian way of celebrating is different and reminded me the true notion of sharing. Diwali is beyond sitting for a dinner, it is 5 days of food sharing, family gatherings, friends visit and shares of stories. This cultural experience is a good reminder that sharing does not have to be seen as a materialistic way to satisfy others but should simply remain as simple as spending time together, regardless of your religion, beliefs and culture.

100+ Global Universities Partnerships


100 + InternationalCollaborations – ONLY UNIVERSITY IN NORTHERN INDIA!

International partnerships are not any tactic of internationalization at CU, but rather our core driving philosophy. Following it ardently and bridging the geographical divide, we at CU have achieved a great landmark by associating with more than 100 top International universities bringing our students the opportunity to study with top universities of the world and embrace multifaceted and dynamic landscape of new ideas and global moves.

It is indeed a very big leap that we at Chandigarh University have achieved.

At Chandigarh University with a futuristic approach we went far beyond the conventional ways and built strategic partnerships to merge the discovery-driven culture of the Chandigarh University with the innovation-driven mindset of the International universities. These partnerships also aim to overcome cultural and communications divide that tends to impair students global movement and undercut their potential, thus instilling in them the skills required to embrace global opportunities and internal markets.

Whether its Top QS ranked university, oldest universities of the world or top research universities we have brought in a lot to offer at global scale. Centres of higher education have been around for hundreds of years, but all do not with stand the test of time. Chandigarh University has taken a big leap by collaborating with some of the longstanding and oldest universities of the world which are significant not only for their historic legacies but also for proving their ability to adapt to modern context and infuse their experience and modernity for providing an enriched education experience. CU’s collaborations with such universities like University Of Salamanca, Spain; University of Florence , Italy & Friedrich Schiller University Jena, Germany brings forth an experience enriched with diversity, legacy, modernity and strong credibility.

Opening doors to these markets our partnership programs support educational mobility and facilitate seamless acceptance of academic credit of Indian students. Our exchange programs offer a head start to students to learn about these countries and economies and learn from the best to contribute, grow and evolve in the best of international opportunities.

Also by forging alliances with the world top QS ranked Universities like McGill University, Montreal, Canada; University of Illinois Chicago; Florida State University, USA  and many more we bring the best of the world to our students. Learning in unison with these top universities students get the unique opportunity to broaden their mind set and horizons and develop their personality as individuals. Studying with the best universities provides an opportunity to expand one's field of view and helps one to understand and analyze problems and phenomena from a longer-term, worldwide perspective. All this contributes in building their competitiveness in today’s era of globalization.

Different countries are especially well-known as leaders in a particular field of research and development, or a particular strand of education. Germany is synonymous with advances in engineering technology, the US with top business and management programs such as Harvard, MIT and Stanford (to name but a few), Australia screams art and design and sport, and Canada has its world-renowned ‘co-op programs’.

FOCUS is under siege more than it has ever been in human history, we have more distractions than ever before, we need to be more focused on cultivating the skills of attention.

Do you feel when you are sitting in your classroom and the lecture is going on that your mind is somewhere else? You are physically present in the classroom but your mind is travelling elsewhere and losing your focus on where it should be. Are you disoriented in life and unable to take decisions? Well, we live in the world of distractions today and to create a focus in life seems to be like climbing a mountain. But eventually we have to climb it to rule our distractions.

The first question is to find out why are you so unfocussed in life?

1. Are you using your cell phones more than you should?
2. Are you more extra active on social media?
3. Are you eating well?
4. Are you exercising?
5. Are your friends distracting you?

Well, reasons can be many but you need to find the cause and rectify it before this crucial age takes a different turn. Cell phones are considered culprits and are the biggest distractions. A survey showed that over 70% of students silently use cell phones in classrooms. The lure of social media has taken a toll on many. With junk food on the spree a lot of you are not eating well and with lazy routines you are not even exercising and keeping yourself fit. And those of you who have a little focus are not in the right company or can’t take the peer pressure.

We are all born with same brain like that of Albert Einstein, Aryabhata, Shakespeare etc. but it’s on us how much and where all we use it. If you are losing your focus in life for some petty things that gives short lived enjoyment, which is just a very bad bargain. Being a student you are in a very crucial age of your life and you are setting up your base which needs to be strong and focused.  The way you live your life, from the career you choose all the way down to the food you eat, should fit within your values and beliefs, purpose and priorities. Being Focused and Serious in life does not mean you are UNCOOL, it’s more so an understanding that when you are studying you are just studying and nothing else and when you are playing you are just playing, nothing else. It’s in fact a more cool way to look at life. You need to be right in the very moment to live it, enjoy it, give your best and reap the best. 

Exercise and keep yourself fit not just for good looks but also for stress- free mind. Eat a healthy diet to keep your mind & body healthy.  Friends are a very important part of life but then wise men say choose your friends correctly. Those who distract you and do not add anything to your life, you need to stay away from them and choose healthy friendships that will encourage you to grow in life. 

Also an important factor is that Digital boom has changed our lives. It’s good to stay active on social media and search things on internet but you need to draw a line and don’t let it distract you from your main aim in life. Social Media will just stay there but this time of yours will never come back. So take the best from everything you have and create an aim and focus in life.

Last but not the least, increase your concentration by meditating. It’s a great way to help kill the distractions and strengthen mind to take a leap and stay focussed.
Numerous studies have shown that mindfulness meditation can improve our ability to sustain attention. The ability to concentrate on our breathing for long periods of time transfers over to other pursuits. If we can focus on a subtle object like our breath for 20 minutes, think how easy it will be to focus on sports, studies, work, or anything else for that matter.
