A simple yet supple term that says more than what it means. Essentially what the message it’s trying to give out is you either commit yourself to whatever you do or you don’t do it at all.

Every year a group of thousands of young, talented, strong men and women are chosen from the army to recruit them in to marines. Not many make it as most of us know it is one of the most unforgiving, intense and toughest training regimen created in the entireworld. If they make it they will turn out to be the finest warriors respected and feared among the rest of the armed forces. Notbecause they are the strongest they are the toughest because the terms “go hard or go home” is literally embedded in to their DNA.

As real as it may seem all our lives we are taught our limits which guide us which help us find our way in life which act as bench marks through and through. Limits that keep u safe from uncertainty and unknown. But at the end of it all ask yourself have you really made an impact that you can see for yourself. If the answer is ‘no’ then it was a life short lived and wasted efforts defining your every attempt to greatness.

Overcoming the dogma that you want to escape something you can’t define and understand fully is the hardest thing you can attempt to do. Better yet the question is can you really do it?

The answer is simply ‘yes’. Every person is given an equal opportunity and we all share the same old watch that ticks 24 and 7 with 52 weeks and 365/366 days. Then how is it some make it and some don’t the answer lies in the question at large, because it’s not about how much time you have in your hands or a matter of what you achieved it’s all about how much you really want it and how bad.

Everything conspires deep in your mind deeper than you can ever think “what you think is what you are or what you will become” all you need to do is dedicate and discipline yourself and have the drive to want it so bad as bad as you want to breathe when you are underwater then that shows we are getting somewhere.

A competitive sport especially cycling is a good example for pushing limits we all have same physical composition flesh, blood and bones the same are use in a cycling competition. If education serves right it will tell you this is what you can do and nothing else but if you add a secret ingredient called “tenacity” no one can will stand between you and success. But if you have to get there you best friends are determination, patience and most importantly undying resolution to get there.

Same applies to real life situation whether it’s your job or be it any achievement you want to reach in real life you are guide in a certain path which leads you to a dead end and tells you this is a wall and it stays it keeps you there if you choose to but if you dig deep break the fears and crack the wall world is your playground and let no one tell you otherwise.

Experience put together,I am a Fresher out of the University and Its my second interview and MY FIRST JOB now. ……. It’s been 1 year and I am about to write a blog, If I think about my interview process, I guess I have followed what I would be saying now unknowingly!!!!!! .
It’s an understanding about WHAT NOT TO USE in an interview process…….
Basically it’s an interview and no doubt there will be a lots of Excitement, Enthusiasm, Curiosity and Nervousness .Make sure you convey your Excitement, Enthusiasm and Curiosity about the Job , it would make the process flow free .Never let your Nervousness dominate the rest of the three and convey that “you are really nervous”,It may be directly or may be through your body language , it would make the interview process end up to be One sided talk than a Mutual Discussion , which might not have a happy ending.
“Never show your desperation” your future Employers may view it as a sign of weakness. An employer wants employees who are seeking a long-term career, not merely a job.”
Interview is give and take process, picking the perfect match either for the employer or the employee, so start a discussion if possible which is related to work. If you are a Fresher out of the University start with what you want to be , why you want to be and so on and if you are already in the field and waiting for a new Start , explain about your previous achievements and “let’s not talk money” on the first instance.
Now this is an obvious question for all those who either are currently in the field or were in the field at past. “Why are you looking out” do explain the reason, be frank enough and no twisted tongue’s and most importantly your answer must never be “My current boss/employer is horrible.” Your interview process might successfully end, with you getting not shortlisted!!!!
Remember solving the problems of your employer will solve your problems .If the conversation is filled up with all your needs then your employer might think you  would cost a bomb to maintain and  highly challenging to work with .
Generally problems may take some time to be cleared, whatever field you are into. Hence the most important aspect being tested either directly or indirectly would be your patience. So be patient and as the quote goes “intezaar ka phal meetha hota hai !!!!!!”.
“Perks are perks “, they are sweeter, but never get it proved at the interview point.  If proved it would not be sweeter any more.
Do ask questions at the end, either it may be small or big and keep in mind a basic thing your question should be related to the work and Company you will be a part off.

Every once in a while there comes a time when you are faced with adversities and every adversity has its solution and in order to find a solution you have to make a choice. Generally choice always has been is and forever will be a real pain as we all know ‘every action has an equal and opposite reaction ‘or in this case it’s a ‘consequence’. Consequence here refers to a job being accepted.

A job offer essentially is an end result of a series of discussions where person is asked a series of questions that happen to find out he persons intellectual abilities and his willingness to pursue a particular job.  A job that eventually becomes his/ her career.

Now let’s see things to consider before accepting an offer like all process human cognitive function deduces all possibilities of accepting and rejecting an offer where by eliminating chances of failure to perform resulting he will stand where he started off or back to the drawing board situation. So, it is necessary a thorough systematic analytic thought must be in place before taking (accepting) an offer.

Stop and go

A job offer is essentially an end result then the process of debating begins whether as to accept it or not believe me about 75% of job offers are chosen due to one of these two reasons one would be salary the other would be ease of access or near the work place. The dogma as to choice arises when there are multiple choices again choice is the problem. The solutions is simple stop and think for a movement are you really going to do what you want to do for the rest of your life, are you going to be happy and can you see scalable and reasonable amount of growth in it. If you can answer these questions then you are ready to go and accept an offer.

It’s a marathon not a sprint

Accepting a job offer is only the beginning don’t consider as a short run it’s a long run process like a marathon it needs to be done thoughtfully where in you need to conservatively approach it rather than aggressively as it would exhaust you and leave you in a state of pandemonium. So you must understand it’s a very long term commitment and must be planned and executed in a conservative as well as systematic manner. Consider various aspects like “the kind of people you will work with”, the magnitude of technical problems you will be solving”, “how close this job will take you towards your career aspirations”, “ how do you rate the interview process in terms of standards of questions, the  work culture, impact of the role et al, and definitely other aspects like compensation, location, “work – life balance assumptions” all have to be kept in mind while the thought process is in progress.

Do what you do best leave out all the rest

As mentioned earlier some very minute things can mean the difference between a good choice and bad choice sometimes you must accept an offer and have a little faith because a good company understands people and their needs and accordingly designs compensation as salary is most certainly a personal matter and have good processes in place. So accept an offer with good faith you worry about what you are hired to do le the company worry about the rest.

Robert Kiyosaki’s an American investor and a motivational speaker states   “when you are young work to learn and not to earn”because if you earn a lot of money you have it till you spend it but if you acquire a new skill it lasts a lifetime.

Few tips to remember before accepting a job offer:

  • Is the location good for you as travelling too long will wear you out and it hinders your performance.
  • Culture is the key to having good relations in an organization and their attitude employees have towards their employer
  • Understand all three dimensions of your role and do an in- depth analysis of your career prospects
  • Think about how you can add value to the company and grow along with the company.
  • Consider and visualize whether the compensation is adequate for you to lead a content life.
