Monal Nagpal, after having completed her PGDM in the fields of HR and Marketing, Monal has experience of working with Concentrix and is currently working with Marks and Spencer. She discussed:
HR is a customer service industry and requires you to be a custodian of mind; effective communication is the key to all problems.
While preparing for an interview, some of the key factors that can affect your selection include- displaying passion, being able to justify why the job means a lot to you and how you are going to add value to the organization, aligning organizational and personal goals and most of all, being updated- latest news in the domain, trends, etc.
With digitalization taking over the workplaces, it is quite evident that AI is the future. However, it is impossible to replace the sense of human element at a workplace
A major misconception with the youth nowadays is that they believe that an MBA degree will immediately fetch them the position of a CEO; but the reality is, that it requires patience, determination, and a lot of hard work.
Often, it is believed that several companies just manufacture the products, tag and sell them in the market, but it is not the real picture. It requires a great deal of integration between logistics, marketing, and operations.
To ace an interview, it is important for the candidate to- ensure punctuality, dress well, have the right attitude, focus on the skillset, and most importantly, let the interviewer know, why you’re the right choice for this job.
