How to Write Reports

Report writing forms an essential skill for professional. It aims to inform as clearly and precisely as possible. A report is a systematic, well organized document which defines a subject to be accurate, concise, clear and well structured. Before writing a report, a few initial preparations are expected to be done. Things like is the report clearly understood, purpose of the report and who is it being written for. The clearer these things are in the writer’s mind, the easier it will be for the writer to write and it will be more effective.

Below mentioned are a few guidelines:

1.    Planning

One needs to decide the basic framework with the main topics or questions as the central focus, one need to jot down the initial thoughts and start to group them together. With the aid of prior knowledge, one should be able to put together a fairly basic structure. If one faces difficulty to initialize then one should ask questions like the purpose of writing the reports, facts, reasons and possible opinions. If one has specific information to look for, then it will make the reading easier and less time consuming. Avoid gathering too much information. When in the process of making notes, always try to summarize the main points as concisely as possible.

2.    Title

The title page should normally include the title, the name of the writer, name of the person to whom it is submitted, date of submission, the name of the person or organization who has asked for the report, if possible.

3.    Page

Everyone likes to refer to a clear, well formatted list of sections and subsections. One should ensure that the headings in the list correspond to those in the main body.

4.    Body

This forms the substance of your report. The structure would vary according to the nature of the topic that is intended to be written. It is insufficient to simply describe a situation. One can make use of chart, diagrams and tables to emphasize on the points mentioned in the report or to justify the points that are carried in the reports.

  • 5.    Recommendations

One should always remember that there should be a purpose how the situation or problem could be improved by suggesting some action. There should be some logical conclusion behind the reasoning. If desired, the recommendations can be numbered.

Thus, one should draw out the implications of one’s findings based on the facts that are described in the main body.

Etiquettes with Senior Citizens

INTRODUCTION

The first and very thought would be ‘Why do we need to treat senior citizens differently? The younger, the customer, and the simple it is to make them understand. As the years pile on, the social behavior becomes more and more engraved into one’s personality which leaves just little room for possibility of learning to behave in a different manner. One must follow few tips, while one is dealing with senior citizens.

  • PATIENCE:

This is the number one element that sets any senior citizens to feel frustrated. They tend to feel that the younger generation has no patience at all or has very short lived patience. So, it’s our turn to understand and so we must be very patient with them. We must drop down to their level one makes them understand.

  • SHORT LIVED MEMORY:

This is not exclusively for senior citizens. In fact none of the mentioned tips are only and only for the senior citizens. All of us have, at one time or other forgotten things, names, instructions or other items. So writing down would help. Making double sure or at times triple sure that they understand what has been said and what is required to be done is more important.

  • TAKE THE SURETY OF THEIR UNDESIRABILITY:

One must make sure that they have clearly understood the message.  Senior citizens are hard of that, they have-not understood the message that you are trying to put across. In such scenarios, you might ask them to repeat what they have heard. Having them repeat, whatever they have heard is the best way to become sure that they have got the correct message.

  • NO SPEEDY CONVERSATIONS:

One needs to understand that speed is not equal to success when dealing with senior citizens.     One must slow down the pace. Acknowledge what they are saying. The faster you go, the more ambiguous, it will be for them. Remember, that it is not a race to get rid of them. In fact, it is a   chance to be nicer to them.

  • SMILE:

The element of something that everyone relishes, even the senior citizens. Infact they relish it more than any other. They may not have had a smile given to them in days or months. They may not have laughed. You can make things better for them. So when you talk with them, keep a big smile on your face. They will feel it and also appreciate it. So, it should be irrespective of the age.

A 30 years old with think the 55 year old is senior. A 55 year old will think that a 70 year old is senior. So irrespective of age, one must always respect and understand others and also feelings. The important aspect is that, we must never forget that their present is our future.

Breathing out of Tension in Interview

‘Interview’ the word itself can cause tension to some people.  One’s brain, body and behaviour are all interconnected. People who feel nervous, often start to breath more quickly, which can make the person feel dizzy and may also cause a panic attack. In this case, breathing more slowly and deeply can summon up feelings of intense relaxation.

Below mentioned are the few steps:

1. One should familiarise oneself with the company or organisation for which one is interviewing oneself. Knowing more than just basic information about one’s possible new job will prepare oneself better for the interview.

2. One should get a good amount of sleep the night before the scheduled interview.  Being tired on the day of interview can make one feel more worried and less prepared.

3. One should arrive at least half an hour before the scheduled interview time. This will provide plenty of time to review any notes that one would desire to have a glance at. This will make one mentally prepared for the interview.

Once prepared take a walk outside. Doing so will give one extra energy to go smoothly through the interview process. This last step of preparation is a great final way to reduce stress before the interview.

Thus one should not feel pressurised by the mere thoughts of Interview.

THINK IN ENGLISH:

With an aim to improve English language, one should think in English. Only having technical knowledge of the language is not enough, practical implementation is very important. Implementation is possible only when one interacts in English and interaction can happen only when through are clear. Clarity in thoughts is possible only when one thinks in English.

  • One should develop the habit of thinking in English. The practice of thinking in English enables one to become fluent while one interacts. Majority of the people, have the habit of first thinking in their mother tongue and then translating it in English, this seldom makes one fluent.
  • The chain that one should adopt is think-speak-think-speak. The mistake that one makes is that they adopt the chain of speak-think-speak- think. Many a times, people speak and then think if what they have said is correct or not. Whereas with the focus to improve one’s English, one should take pause before talking and think in English language.

LISTENING:

The Art of Listening is very vital to improve the English language. This aspect can be understood by relating it to our lives. When we were infants or children, nobody taught us our mother tongue, we learnt it just by listening and we become fluent in it just by listening.

  • Similarly, in order to become fluent in English one should surround one’s self with people, who know English language and who speak only in English. The more you near people interacting in English, the more you learn. Listening is a prominent thing in learning any language.
  • By listening to people who fluently interact in English one gets an exposure to new vocabulary and comes across many new phrases or idioms. Listening forms an important art while learning English. One should be surrounded by people who are well versed with the language and meet always look for opportunities to interact with people.
  • The more one interacts, the more one learns. Just having knowledge of English in depth is of less use. One should have enough implementation of the language and the implementation should also be of a practical one. Listening does not mean only of people but it  can be of any  kind like listening to English songs, watching English news channels etc, Listening is one of the most effective ways to learn English language.

PRACTICE:

One needs to have a prolonged motivation to practice. Proactive efforts are very much welcomed while learning anything. There are very much welcomed while learning anything. There are innumerable methods that one can adopt and practice the language in an appropriate way.

  • In order to become an effective speaker of English language, one should record one’s own voice and listen to it. This helps in self analysis. One can map one’s own improvement by practicing.
  • Practice is the only element that can make one perfect and motivate oneself to learn more and more. In today’s scenario, where globalization is on the rampage, the stage is set such that English has become inerrable and important for anything and everything like studies, job, business and many more.
  • Possessing fair English knowledge will give one the confidence and good understanding on various global perspectives. It is never wrong to learn any language. English language has become an essential tool to communicate with most of the people in society. In order to excel in the said language, regular implementation of the same is extremely important. By constant practice, one can find a radical change in the language and will enable one to become fluent and gain immense clarity.

GRAMMAR:

Grammar is important. The parts of speech, tenses, form of verb, articles and modals all contribute to fluency. Focus more on understanding between nouns and verbs, which runs throughout English at all levels. One should make sincere efforts tofu learn them.

  • Majority of people run behind fluency, they fail to understand that fluency can be gained only when one is well versed with grammar and its rules. In the entire literature, grammar rules are extremely prominent; one should always keep the grammar rules into consideration, as they are the only tools to make one fluent in the language.
  • When learning or using many people find that their grammar is far from perfect. But grammar is inescapable. It is the backbone of the any language and must be understood in order to communicate effectively. People communicate through writing now more than ever.
  • As phone calls decrease and text messages increase, e-mails have become standard for business. Using proper spelling and good English grammar is imperative for all of these methods of communication when applying for jobs, good English grammar becomes exceptionally important, even if you desired carrier has nothing to do with writing, your attention to grammar in your better and resume will show intelligence and class.
  • As we are well aware that English grammar is very important as it will help not only in getting jobs but also potentially increase the changes to become acceptable socially.

RECORD YOURSELF:

Do you know how you sound like in English? Record yourself on your computer or another taping device, play back the recording and pay very close attention to what you hear. Listen to your pronunciations and tone of speech. Ask yourself are there area you could improve? Write these done and continue to work on them.

  • The Importance of recording is to make you aware of the area where one needs to improve and to take the necessary steps that will enable one to become fluent.
  • An audio recorder is one of the important tools that should be used on a regular basis. Audio recording is a vital tool for providing the rumens of oral explanations and pronunciations. After the recording, one must check if the pace was apt, or was it too fast or too slow and then bring an enhancement in one’s speech.
  • It works in a tremendous way because these recordings provide unlimited access to receive the explanation of meanings that they worked on and will improve the understanding of content. Make podcasts your buddies. Podcasts are available on internet.
  • These are nothing but audio or video files and many podcasts can be downloaded instantly for free with the help of these, one can develop an understanding of different accents of native speakers in English.

SPEAK SLOWLY AND CLEARLY:

Communication is the transfer of information and understanding from one person to another. It is a way of reaching others with facts and information. Most of the times people talk keeping in mind their understandability of their speech, but the main focus should be on making the speech understandable to the listener.

  • The speaker needs to drop down to the listener’s level and adopt their pace. Making one’s speech understandable to one’s own self is not an achievement. The achievement would be when the audience understands the speaker. Speaking clearly and slowly is of primary importance, whatever you communicate with others, they should be able to understand what has been communicated to them.
  • In the initial stage if you speak clearly and slowly, you can overcome number of mistakes. In course of time you would surely enhance your communication skills in English. Be confident and speak as often as possible to as many people as you possibly can. Do not be shy to make mistakes. The more you practice the better and more confident you will become in your pronunciations and vocabulary.
  • Always remember no one is perfect everyone learns from their mistakes. Speak with a mirror, person or even wall, all that matters is to improve your skills. English is meant to be learnt by committing errors. Improving is not an overnight process, it takes a great deal of time and this can be achieved by being patient and practice speaking.

USE THE DICTIONARY:

Try and familiarize yourself with the phonetic symbols of the dictionary. Look up the correct pronunciation of words that are hard for you to say. Write down words and their definitions for future reference.

  • The objective to use a dictionary is to determine the effectiveness of each word that is unknown. Making it a practice to daily find new vocabulary words and gradually replacing it with your existing English words.
  • Dictionary gives you the exposure to the word of new words if used properly. It gets one come across words that will help one to enhance their vocabulary and lease a drastic impact one others. One must always have general knowledge of the spoken words. You can write all the new words that you hear and you can also write their synonyms, Opposites etc, to further enhance English better.
  • Reading English daily is one of the best ways for improving your English language skills, you can buy any English newspaper and try to read it for a few minutes, note down the words that you do not understand and learn their meanings by referring to a dictionary. This task will boost one’s vocabulary and increase the understanding of the English language.

WRITE:

The art of writing brings you closer to English language. It gives you a chance to correct the spelling errors, if there are any writing materializes the knowledge that one has of the language. If full proofs the knowledge that one has acquired for the language. Expressing your ideas in writing is another useful part of the English language learning process.

  • Writing down your thoughts in English language is not only improving your communication skills, it will also help in improving your creativity and confident levels. Start writing short and simple sentences and gradually develop the writing skills to complex sentences with proper usage of grammar.
  • Making a diary and penning down your thoughts is one of the best ways to map one’s progress when it comes that English language. It you think writing is very difficult and hard for you to learn thinks again, it is one of the most essential and quickest means to learn English language.
  • It provides you with a proof that whatever knowledge gained is appropriate or not.
  • It helps us to seal he adequate amount of knowledge that we have gained and encourage us to go further on the path of learning. The art of writing should be developed by everyone. It acts as a mirror and makes people aware of their understanding. Most people never consider the complexity and difficulty of the writing process. In fact, related to other activities writing requires more basic skills than perhaps any other.
  • Thus, one must consider writing as one of the most prominent steps and indulge in the same for polishing the language that one has acquired.

OPTIMISTIC APPROACH:

Another very important thing to remember is never feel low of yourself if you do not posses good knowledge in English. The only thing that you need to do is to keep on speaking in English with the people in your immediate circle.

  • With an optimistic approach half of the things are acquired with ease. It is widely accepted that an important contributor to success in a foreign language is the student’s attitude towards it. Considering English as foreign language or the second language when the candidates have a positive and rewarding experience and approach they usually have higher motivation to learn the language and are less likely to suffer from any kind of amity.
  • Motivation can be gained but nothing works that being a self motivator. Self motivation is the best motivation that one can have and that allows one to race the learning process. One most understands and agrees that leering any language is not an overnight process, it has its own limitation and so does the learner. Self analysis is very important. Analyzing one’s efforts and dedication determined one’s improvement in the learning process.
  • Immense devotion is required to learn any foreign language; one must be extremely hard working and must follow a planner to reach the set target of gaining any knowledge of a language. To be motivated throughout the learning process one should know the importance of the language, without knowing its importance and urgency for you, motivation cannot stay long.

IMPROVE THE PRONUNCIATIONS:

Good communication in English depends on proper pronunciation. The regional dialects can differ but clear pronunciations are paramount or bound to make the message well understood. By listening and practicing the sound of English words you can gain mystery over proper pronunciations. Proper pronunciation means speaking in such a way that any fluent speaker of the language would effortlessly know and understand the message.

  • Improper pronunciation caners breakdown in communication and requires more efforts to understand. There are different dialects that give result to different pronunciations. English speakers with a southern dialect have the habit of stretching the vowels.
  • The speakers of other language can confess the listeners if proper pronunciations are not made. Poor pronunciations can cause negative first impression. People who cannot pronounce English properly can often be taken as less literate or intelligent.
  • This can be a factor during promotions and appraisals. If you’re entire performance at the professional level is perfect, but still you can be knocked down for the accent one carriers and the pronunciation that one makes. Volume and pitch are other factors that contribute to pronunciation. The message should be loud enough to be heard and the tone of the message contributes to the meaning as well.
  • Always remember that majority of skills for good pronunciation are acquired through their use rather than learned in any university or classroom. By hearing the language clearly, you are going to acquire it faster.

REDUCE THE FEAR:

Empower yourself and reduce your fears. Remember to think confidently. Everyone makes mistakes when someone learns something new. Some of people worry of sounding stupid, saying something when you mean something else and even wondering if people even understand what is said. But remember it is fear better to try than not to try at all.

  • Fear closes the doors for opportunities and become a major obstacle in our success. Many times we also use the term” fear “while we actually mean “shy”. So any growth will be hampered.
  • One should keep trying and at each step of the way, you will be empowered to try harder and the fear of speaking or learning English language will eventually disappear. Anxiety and nervousness are the key factor that reduces motivation and achievement.
  • Lack of confidence is another remarkable factor of anxiety and fears. Self esteem and self confidence are like the foundations of a building, if they are not secure enough then even the best technology will be insufficient to build solid walls over them.
  • Language anxiety has a negative impact on learning. We can also identify them with some physical fears, such as playing with hair, objects, looking at the ceiling etc. Some of them are noticeable in audios and videos. Hence, one needs to reduce the language fear by having the confidence and keeping oneself self-motivated. Dedication and devotion towards learning makes things easier.

WATCH ENGLISH MOVIES WITH SUBTITLES:

One of the finest ways to improve English is to watch English movies with subtitles. If you can read subtitles without an extra effort, then it is time to use it for language improvement. It is recommended to select movies that you have already seen. But it is equally important to enjoy the movie, if you enjoy the movie, then you will also enjoy learning, you should not focus on all the sentences in English. Just focus on short sentences such as responses. In the mid, if you come across any sentence that is humorous than you can repeat it and realize what it means in your mother tongue.

You must make it a practice to repeat more and more sentences. You can also go for movies that you have not seen before. This will teach you how to understand the language and think about it in the same time. When you feel that you can understand everything that is the time to go the next level. If you feel movies are time consuming, as they are very long, then you can go for series, as they are more suitable. Just try to watch an episode of a series without subtitles and try to understand as much as possible. Then watch it again and catch everything you did not understand before.

The choice of movies is also important. It is important to select movies with simple English as an initial stage to understand it in a better way. Watching movies can be taken as one of the ways to improve English language, as it offers you ample opportunities to listen and understand.

REMEMBER THE MISTAKES:

It is rightly said by Bruce Lee: – Only willingness is not enough, implementation matters a lot, on the similar manner, only having the willingness to learn English is not enough, one should also have the element of implementation. One should implement the knowledge gained. Implementation plays as a mirror, as it makes us aware of the efforts that we are making and will also make us understand our efforts in a better way. One should always remember the mistakes that one makes, and then only learning process will be smoother and easier.

Just keeping a track of the errors is not enough, but rectifying them and not repeating them will make the learning process quicker and interesting. One must always have notes that display both the errors and then their rectifications. This chart provides immense clarity and gives one a chance to rectify by understanding the logic behind the rectifications. If you make a mistake and do not write it down, you will make the same mistake again and again. The art of writing makes you much aware of your progress and also mapping your improvement becomes easy.

Accept your error gracefully. Make necessary amendments and keep them in your mind, and try your level best not to repeat them again. Remember that errors are part and parcels of the learning process.

PATIENCE:

Patience is a very important key to learn English. Expecting results overnight is equal to fooling your own self. Having patience and being optimistic is an important factor to gain knowledge effectively. One needs to have immense patience and must be calm and composed while learning any language, no matter how much ever urgent would be for you to learn quickly but patience only will take you ahead in you learning path. Submissive approach towards learning will increase the pace of your learning. You can change the way you speak but it will not happen overnight. People often expect instant results and give up too soon. You can change the way you sound, if you are willing to put some effort into it.

Being in regular touch with grammar English words and interacting with people will make one extremely fluent and bring a drastic change in them. Impatience will make one lose the battle. Amity and restlessness should be far away from you, fresh mind and an extremely good learning approach can make you a winner. One more advantage is being patient is that helps you learn more and in systematic way.

It also allows one to think and opens doors for learning a new language. If an individual has patience since the start, then the learning process becomes more fruitful and productive.

Etiquettes for Ladies

We all are aware that since time immemorial, very strict codes of conduct are adhered to, if one aspires to fit into the title of a lady or gentleman.

  1. Cultivate a happy temper, people love to be around those who have a happy go lucky nature and who will also find a good spirit begets cheer and hope.

  3. An erect head, chin in and shoulders back are considered the most apt posture for walking. Do not lean over to one side when walking, standing or sitting. The practice is not only ungraceful also deforming and so unhealthy.
  4. If one allows the hands to showing in walking, then they are formed should be limited. A ladies would do it much more gracefully.

Politeness becomes the expression in a graceful manner of social virtues. The spirit of politeness must be present in every possible manner. Thus, a combination of all the above aspects makes a lady a “Lady” in true sense.

Change of Career

The interviewer who asks this question is probably more interested in knowing your motivation and also to check if you know what you are getting into.

When  talking about your passion and determination to enter a new profession, one should make sure that the use of body language and tone of voice should corroborate with the spoken message.

A good response to this question should demonstrate to the interviewer that you have thought about the pros and cons of the career path rather than falling into something that you are unaware about.

Most interviewers are used to dealing with fresh crowd, so it could also be a first time experience for them.

Demonstrate in your response that you are very much determined about the shift of the career.

Construct your answers in such a manner that it shows the time and effort that you have already invested in  researching your new career choice.

Thus,  the candidate should be prepared to talk about the career future. If one is changing careers entirely, then one must assure the interviewer that you have given the matter a lot of consideration and are ready for all the psychological,  practical and financial aspects of doing so.

 

Talking about Personal Qualities

Interviewers ask a lot of questions and we cannot blame them for that. They want to make sure that they can hire someone who is the best for the job and can help the organisation to succeed. They always want to play it safe and do not want to end up hiring someone who is a complete misfit for the organisation.

Every human has strengths and weaknesses. While asked about strengths, one should also  enjoy prepared for question regarding weakness. Rather than saying that there are no weaknesses, which most interviewers are likely to interpret as arrogance, a candidate should choose minor weaknesses that are unrelated to one’s ability.

If you mention arena weakness that could affect one’s ability to do the job, the candidate should be prepared to describe what actions are ye being taken to improve or develop oneself.

The candidate should ensure not to make extravagant claims about oneself unless they carry any evidence to support it.

Before turning up for the interview, the job seeker should be able to find out answers to few of the following questions:

1. Business:

3. Organization Panel

The candidate should be aware of the key people within the organization. For instance, if the chairman, chief executive or any of the directors are well known figures in the local or international community, make sure you know their names, so that you do not look confused, if in case the interviewer mentions them in the discussion.

4. Strategy for the future

The candidate can check the strategies that the organization has on mind. What plans or future investments do they have?

5. Staff

The candidate can also come to know approximately how many staff does the organization employ. This would give them an idea if the organization is of a very large employer or a small employer.
