Engineering Students and Unemployability
  • Unlike occupational or technical skills, employability skills are generic in nature rather than job specific and cut across all industry types, business sizes, and job levels from the entry-level worker to the senior-most position.
  • The industry requires new graduates who understand the part they play in building their organisations, and have the practical skills to work effectively in their roles.

The rules for work are changing, and we’re all being judged, whether we know it or not, by a new yardstick—not just how smart we are and what technical skills we have, which employers see as givens, but increasingly by how well we handle ourselves and one another.

three magic tools
Three Magic Tools
  • There are three tools that will help you to make every relationship work:
  • Respect
  • Helpfulness
  • Understanding
  • Respect the person you work with.
  • If you don’t like him / her, and still need to work together, make the effort to find at least one nice thing about the person.
  • Remember, that no one is totally wrong or bad.
  • Even a clock that does not work tells the correct time twice a day!
  • Be genuinely helpful.
  • Remember the objectives of a professional relationship – achieving the organizational objectives and goals, in a positive and proactive manner.
  • So, there is no room for personal agendas and score settling. Pettiness like – “He didn’t help me when I needed it, so why should I do it now?” – needs to be left behind in the childhood.
  • Involves, first of all, listening.
  • Listening with an open mind, and non-judgmentally.
  • Understanding also involves empathy.
what is relationship management
What is Relationship Management?
  • It is all about being great at your interpersonal skills and relating effectively with others. People who efficiently use their interpersonal skills always:
  • Get the best out of a relationship.
  • Handle difficult situations with ease and enthusiasm.
  • Behave in a situation centric way, and not a people centric one.
  • Separate problems from people.
  • Focus on solutions rather than problems.
  • “Others” are others…… you could have come across this attitude several times.
  • But you begin to change when you realize that the relationship you have with them indeed affects your work life as well as your personal life.
  • This prompts you to “understand others”.
  • What does “understanding others” mean?
understanding others
Understanding Others
  • The first step to understanding others is learning about them. In organization context, managing your relations with your colleague could mean 2 things:
  • Knowing what you need from him
  • Knowing what he needs from you
  • We can learn more about others when we disclose our selves. Self-disclosure is seen as a useful strategy for sharing information with others. Also, we build trust and rapport.
team work
Team work

A team is a group of people who are working towards the same goal.

A good team works well together, has attributes such as flexibility and synergy, and achieves more than the sum of its' parts.
