“HANDLING THE STRESS” by Aastha Mahendru

Handling the stress during placement season becomes as important as placement preparation when you are going through tough placement procedures. I know this is a stressful phase for many of you. So, article is not about how you should be preparing for placements but rather how you should be dealing with the stress. Don’t let the stress engulf you. There’s a long way to go ahead.

I will divide the placement semester in three parts: –

  1. Before you get placed
  2. Immediately after you get placed
  3. After your placement (when the feeling of getting placed finally seeps in) till the end of the semester

There will be a lot of anxiety before you get placed. Many of you must be under stress at this moment also.

You must have seen many people getting placed. It’s good for them but don’t let that hamper your motivated self. That might start to weigh you down but that weight is not yours to carry. It’s an achievement for them but it must not be a formidable accomplishment for you. At these times, you may also feel mystified as to why you are not able to crack company papers or interviews. Either way you must try to ameliorate your skills. Talk to your seniors. They are the best guides. You can review all the interview experiences of your seniors for the company that you are preparing for from our website. Appear for every company with same enthusiasm that you had in the beginning of placement season. Trust your skills and your hard work. Have faith in God.



Not everyone gets placed in the first try. So, if you are one from that lot, don’t worry, take a deep breath. It’s just a difficult day. It’s not the load that breaks you down, it’s the way you carry it. You don’t need to reach the zenith of perfection, just make all your arduous efforts. Don’t worry, your day is coming closer. Before appearing for any test or interview just remember you just need one perfect shot to be a champion. And that one perfect shot can take many tries before it happens. Learn from every failure and don’t let that mistake happen again. Analyze yourself after every test that you were not able to clear or interview you were rejected.

The day you get placed is the day you feel an inexplicable euphoria. It’s the most beautiful time of the semester. You will start feeling light headed. It will take a few days for the feeling of getting placed to finally sink in. But don’t let this feeling get to your head. Don’t let it overwhelm you. Be humble and benign. One year from now, you will realize that getting placed was just a beginning, there’s still a long way to go. Avoid that headstrong phase where you feel that you have conquered the world. Try to help and motivate your companions who are still on the other side of the fence.

As far as the remaining semester is concerned, enjoy it to the utmost. You will never get this time back. Roam around the campus. Eat your heart out. Spend time with your friends. Make some amazing college ending memories. Trust me, this time is never going to come back. Few months down the lane, you will crave for your college days. Emboss these memories in your heart.

All the best for this semester and all your future endeavors. Always remember one thing, you will get placed only on the day it is supposed to happen. No sooner or later. And on that day, the dots will join themselves.

The art of resume writing

Many people must have suggested you to prepare a good resume. Most of you might have started making one and others are yet to figure out what this resume is and why this is so important. If truth be told, your resume is more of an advertisement about you. Imagine you are going to a market where companies purchase candidates. Before you could even meet the buyer or have words, you are asked for a written document specifying the features of product and quality assurance. And that document is product’s resume – your resume. So, you can say resume writing is like creating a work of art. You need to present yourself with minimum use of words. It’s simply writing a poem – writing in strictly limited space and conditions, you try to say who you are expressively.

This article introduces you to art of resume writing. If you are about to prepare a resume, I would suggest you to go through this article once.

Writing objective statement of resume:

People always think that only projects and co-curricular activities are important for an impressive resume. But trust me objective statement is equally important as other parts of resume. When starting to design the resume, you need to start with a title that would summarize your professional skills and immediately grabs the attention of the screening team in the organization. Make sure it is not superfluous and avoid exaggerations, as companies generally do not fall for such things.

Let’s take an example. Assume a fresher applying for some job writes following resume objective. I have copied this one from internet.

Objective: To pursue a highly rewarding career, seeking for a job in challenging and healthy work environment where I can utilize my skills and knowledge efficiently for organizational growth.



At first it seems to be a good and attractive objective but trust me it’s not! But why? Its first part “To pursue a highly rewarding career” reflects greed for money and rewards which at first look provides a negative impression. Second part seems to be a generalized part without summarizing any professional skills. So, it’s a total flop. Now what is a good resume objective. Avoiding all above-mentioned mistakes and keeping in mind about reflecting your skills in objective I came up with this objective for my resume when I prepared resume for first time.

Objective: As an electronics and communication engineer, with an all-round performance, good technical and team working skills I wish to join your organization as a Software Engineer.

Wasn’t it simple and covering all above-mentioned points?

Now your resume should support all key points written in objective like “all-round performance”, “technical skills”, “team working skills”. I summed up my whole resume in these three words. Be smart enough to represent your skills from first line that you can write. Good objective is like a summary statement which highlights your strengths and gives a clear picture of what career goals you have. Try to sum everything up in three or four lines, as it is easier to scan through.

How to structure your resume?

Once you are done with a good and catchy career objective it’s time to put your technical and other skills on paper. Follow these points while adding information about yourself.

  • Start by writing your name, email id, sex, age and contact details.
  • Objective followed by education qualification and internship details.
  • If you are applying for a software company internship column should be followed by software skills, followed by project details, followed by achievements and extra-curricular activities.
  • A consultancy company requires internship column should be followed by achievements, followed by extra-curricular activities, software skills and project details.
  • If you are applying for a core company write about industrial trainings followed by 4-5 good projects and good technical skill sets.
  • At last write about additional information about you. It should include your unique abilities, interests, hobbies.

Important points to remember

  • Generally any email id would work but if you are applying for a consultancy company prefer using email id with your name only and should not include any numbers like sahil01@gmail.com, gogna889@gmail.com. Try finding email ids on other email provides like outlook, Hotmail or yahoo. Some examples of good email ids can be sahil.gogna@xyz,com, sahil_gogna@xyz.com, gogna.sahil@xyz.com, sahilgogna@xyz.com , gognasahil@xyz.com, sahil.gogna.sahil@xyz.com .
  • If you are applying for a software company stress more on describing your internship learning, software skills and projects. Projects forms most crucial point of a resume for software firm. Try to put at least two projects. There is no upper limit. Describe those in just one-two line. Just mention software technology used, IDE used and databases used. Do not describe anything in detail as this would make your resume look bulky and moreover you will fall short of points to explain if you write everything on resume. Also, write all the technologies you have worked upon and IDE used for development.
  • If you are applying for a consultancy company highlight your achievements and extra-curricular activities more than your projects and software skills. Your resume should focus more on team work, event management and any public speaking experience. Don’t put more than two projects and a lengthy list of software skills as they are not looking for a technical person. And, don’t miss to write about projects and software knowledge as interviewer can be judgmental regarding your dedication and work ethics as you are an engineer if you don’t write those points.
  • Do not go for superfluous fonts to write in the  Theideal fonts for resumes are Times New Roman, Verdana or Arial. Also, make sure to stick to font size 10 or 12 as this makes for a professional look and is easy to read.
  • The length of the resume matters too. It should not exceed more than two pages, as this may get boring for the employers when screening it.
  • Most people still stick to the belief that a resume should be a single page, so make sure you know what is expected in company you are appearing for.
  • Have someone review what you have written. A good teacher or a senior who knows about your potential and skill set can prove helpful.
  • Always make 3 different resumes for core, software and consultancy firm. Or amend the resume according to the points discussed above before sending it to company or carrying before interview.
  • Resume should be chronological resume. A chronological resume starts by listing your work history, with most recent positions listed first.

What things you should avoid while writing a resume?

When the number of qualified candidates far outweighs the number of open positions, recruiters and hiring managers need to use the resume as a screening device. Don’t be screened out of that position because you didn’t take the time to transform your resume into a piece of art!

Knowledge sources: various workshops on resume writing held in Thapar University, Patiala and guidance from my seniors and teachers.

Exploring Thapar and the world around!

So now the time has come, you have become undergrads! Welcome to Thapar University , Freshers!

Getting into that extreme feeling of freedom, where you have to plan your time, you have to plan your priorities and you have to plan your life! Great one it is! You feel like the free rover on the breezy common of the universe. Time has come to explore yourself and the world around you. It’s been a year I have spent in Thapar University and there’s a lot I have explored about myself and the people around me. For now is the time to realize that there’s a beautiful world beside your books, exams and competitive world.

Well let me tell you, it’s not an easy task to find some places worth embracement, in Patiala. Ask your seniors! But then if you got a caravan of rovers, believe me you’ll know Patiala better than localities.

For this one year of my life, I have been lucky enough to get those free rovers with me. So I have explored some places in Patiala which are worth visiting.

But there’s no universal bucket list, you need to be done with. Each n’ everyone of us has a unique taste of travelliasm, but since you have made efforts to search for this topic, so I must get you with the best possible places you can hang out with your friends in Patiala.

Leela Bhawan zone– Tired with a messy mess food, and want to hang out with friends? Leela Bhawan got some of the awesome places to feed your stomach with Pizza Hut’s Pizza’s or Subs from Subway or chilling Sundae’s at Havmor or bucket of chickens at Kfc. And most importantly Boston Bites, this place is so popular among Thaparians, that Boston Bites provide free Chocó Lava Cake to their Thaparian Customers. We have always believed in maintaining a legacy all around.

Feeling stressed out! Need a perfectly peaceful aura around you, visit Dukhniwaran Sahib Gurudwara, I and my friends usually used to visit this place after our exams in early mornings. Watching the rising sun with your feet in cold water is an amazing way to depart all your worries. Another place to enjoy the nature around are Baradari Gardens, but better to visit these gardens in a cool weather.

The only place where you can watch movies is SRS cinemas in Omaxe Mall.

Sheran Wala gate: Just wait for few months and you’ll be used to this place. Soon you’ll be given a lot of projects to work upon, and you’ll need a lot of electronic stuff, Sheran wala gate has got the most needed Electronics Hub of Patiala. You’ll get any electrical component you need, at a reasonable price.

Sheran wala Gate also has a very popular Chole-Bhature point. Real fun is to have it in breakfast in early mornings before classes. You’ll love cycling out in breezy early morning and then getting a yummy breakfast.

Well you won’t need to get out of Thapar always. You’ll find a lot many things to explore in Thapar itself.  Join societies, visit places, make friends, have fun!

Well as I said there’s no universal law of exploration. There are a lot many other places which will suit your interests. But the key point is to keep exploring and keep learning. For me there’s nothing as good as learning from the world around you. Well 60% (just an estimate) of your friends will end up their lives on bed with earphones plugged in the ears and finishing web series. It’s not like you should not watch of course you should! But spending entire year with this virtual world would not be a cool option.

In the span of one year, I have observed people under three categories, Introverts (their world lies within them), ambiverts (they like socializing to some extent) and extroverts (they never land on a lone planet). It’s tough for an introvert to socialize with people and to have the kind of fun they need. But if you won’t open, you won’t be able to get your preferences. Interact with people around you; be they your classmates or your seniors. Interaction is an most necessary key to widening opportunities. After all when your juniors ask, you must not end up with the thought in your mind that what I did except sleeping.

Have a wonderful year ahead! There’s a lot much waiting for you ahead. Share it with your friends and keep exploring!

It is their job to clear all your doubts.
