Workshop held on personality development and communication skills

Do not fidget, keep your head straight, sit up straight, look into the eye of the person you are speaking to, speak slowly and clearly, have a positive attitude -- these are some of the 18 tips for a positive body language that can help create an impression during a job interview, students of Visakha Government Degree College for Women were told.

The 200 odd girls, who attended the personality development and communication skill workshop conducted by seven AIESEC international interns, were all ears.

The girls from Taiwan, Kazakhstan, Russia, Indonesia, Chinese Taipei, and Tanzania put together their own experience of interacting with officials and seniors in their own countries and while travelling. Interestingly they were about the same age as the students attending the workshop.

The programme was organised by an NGO, Aashrita Amritavarshini Welfare Association (AAWA), which works in higher education space.

Two of the interns are attached to the NGO during their stay in the port city. These interns are likely to return to their homes by the month-end.

They interacted with the students of VS Krishna Government Degree College about a week ago.

Programme aim

“The Indian students are shy and like students elsewhere need training in communication skills,” the Indonesian student said. The programme was aimed at helping the students open up and be able to take on the challenge of job interviews, Jagadeesh of the AAWA said.

Principal in-charge of the college V. Rajasekhar appreciated the organisers for the programme and urged them to hold an interactive session with the students at the earliest.
