A workshop on Communication and Interview Skills was organized by Department of Physics under DBT Star Scheme for undergraduate students at S.G.G.S Khalsa College under the guidance of Dr. Parvinder Singh, Principal of the college. The Speaker of the workshop was Er. Deepak Prashar. Dr. Komal welcomed the speaker, guests and the audience. She introduced the Speaker of the programme and talked about the life and experiences of the Speaker.
Mr. Deepak threw light on the importance of the communication and interview skills in daily and professional lives. Developing communication skills can help many aspects of your life, from your professional career, to social gatherings, to your family life. In today’s hectic world, we rely heavily on sharing information, resulting in greater emphasis being placed on having good communication skills. Good verbal and written communication skills are essential in order to deliver and understand information quickly and accurately. Being able to communicate effectively is a vital life skill and should not be overlooked. Being able to actively listen is an important communication skill. It’s easily overlooked, as people tend to focus more on what they want to say, rather than listening to what the other person is saying. Knowing when to pause to allow the other person to talk is an important skill. It conveys respect and a willingness to hear the other person’s point of view. These skills will help them and their colleagues have more open and useful exchanges, where each contributor’s point of view is expressed and heard. This should lead to a more positive working environment.
Various skills were demonstrated and exercised effectively through oral and practical sessions. Dr.Parvinder Singh thanked the speaker and inspired the students to learn from such workshops. The Vice Principal Prof. Aradhana Duggal and staff of department of Physics and Instrumentation were present at the occasion.
