It’s part of the new way of life. In the new world of 4G connectivity and reduced physical interaction what educators have realized how blocked, they were in their mindset vis a vis traditional delivery tools are concerned.

The Hans India | Experts hail CET

Common Eligibility Test (CET) for recruitment to non-gazetted posts in Central government and public sector banks from 2021, announced by the government in March, is welcomed by education experts. The aim of the CET is to do away with multiple examinations conducted by several agencies. With the Union Cabinet giving its approval, the Union government is all set to hold CET through National Recruitment Agency to fill vacancies in public sector banks, railways, and State & Central bodies.

Vivek Tuteja, chairman, CEO, and chief mentor at Endeavor Careers, feels that CET will give a fair chance to all candidates.

“Standardized testing across positions and geographies will create ease of access and give a fair chance to all candidates. Candidates now will have to target specific scores in only one exam, which will become a benchmark across vacancies. The chaos of different exams and syllabus will no longer prove stressful and job aspirants can singularly focus on the exam with clear patterns and syllabus and will be able to apply for multiple jobs,” he explains.

India Today | How Non-Engineers Can Crack CAT Exam

What it takes an engineer to crack a CAT is what will it take a non-engineer to crack CAT. Mettle! A simple answer to this question is to develop the mettle not just for CAT but also for interviews.

Let’s assume the non-engineer is targeting CAT 2021 and has 14 months of preparation.

For simplicity lets the contents of this article in 3 parts. Why? What? and How?

Why is the most neglected question a future MBA aspirant should focus his energy on?

This comes to haunt him in his interview stage and even during his career if one is approaching the career superficially. “Why MBA?” – The aspirant will have to find his answer or at least understand what the degree opens doors to. I would recommend 2 hours a week to be spent on being more aware of such opportunities.

This is a continuous research habit one should develop. This will involve reading on business magazines to be more aware about business environment and Who’s Who.

It shall also involve understanding the b-school course, start-ups, and outlier achievers. An answer to this question is not essential but understanding what value B-School will add is imperative if one is taking it as a stepping stone for a successful satisfying career rather than a higher paycheque in 2024.

Time of India | Yash Gandhi an Endeavorian defies cerebral palsy & dyslexia to make it to IIM

Yash needs the services of a scribe to take written examinations. He limps but dares to travel by local train in Mumbai. His speech is slurred but his emotions convey his thoughts with utmost clarity.
