Advise by Chetan Bhagat to students

Now Chetan Bhagat has some advice for students. While speaking at a session on the ‘Impact of Digital Co-creation in Business Revolution’ organised in Kolkata he said that its fine and important to get high grades in examinations but its not limited to that.

A students should also know how to market themselves. They should have the skill to demonstrate his / her achievements at the right forums which will help them to achieve their life goals.

A student who cant express or speak confidently in an interview but has excellent marks may not be able to get a job as compared to an average student who is able to express his ideas confidently.

Students must read in history books that Vasco Da Gama came to India in 1498, he said. “Questions came in examinations, we answered and got marks. But then what? It was never taught in schools how Vasco Da Gama established links with the local people in that age of zero network connectivity,”

“Nor did we try to know as we were just happy to get those 2 marks for the answer that Vasco Da Gama had arrived in India in 1498,” he said.

Students should also participate in debates or actively take part in class discussions. At home too parents should encourage children to talk about current and economic issues. This will help them to have a constructive discussion with their peer group or in the corporate world. Its all about marketing your work. Smart work vs hard work.
