Law / 10 Tips for Time Management in the Workplace
« on: December 04, 2012, 12:27:36 AM »
Are you having difficulties managing your time at work? Here are a few quick suggestions for boosting your productivity and improving time management in the workplace:


It’s easy to get caught up in mundane “busy” work that distracts you from more important projects. Always ask, “Is this the best possible use of my time at this exact minute?” If not, stop what you’re doing and direct your efforts toward another activity that is more important.


If you find it hard to get your work done because of drop-in visitors, don’t be shy minimize the time spend with the visitor .


Some people have a hard time staying focused because the piles and stacks distract them from the task at hand. Clear the clutter off of your desk and other visible surfaces, then only have out what you are currently working on. That way, your eye (and your attention) won’t be drawn away as easily.


If your mind can’t seem to settle down, and you keep thinking of the million OTHER things that you have to do, keep a pad of paper on your desk and write down each of these to-do’s as they occur to you. Emptying them out of your head will allow you to stay focused on the task at hand, without fear of forgetting something important.


Rather than simply piling all of your paperwork into a single “in-box” tray, consider setting up a series of action files in a rack or box on your desk with one for each type of to-do. You might have a folder for “to file,” one for “to read,” one for “to contact” or whatever makes sense for your job. When you receive a new stack of paper, take a second to sort it into the appropriate files, according to the next step you need to take with each item.


A lot of folks are great about creating to-do lists, but never seem to get around to marking any of the items off! If you face this sort of challenge, try actually scheduling each to-do on your calendar. Commit a chunk of time on a specific day to each item on your list and you will be amazed at how quickly you get it all done.


Not all to-do’s are created equal nor do they all take the same amount of time. Some items can be completed very quickly (like bookmarking a website, filing a business card in your Rolodex, or entering an important number in your cell phone). When a to-do crosses your desk, ask if it can be completed in 30 seconds or less. If so, just go ahead, do it, and get it over with -- just one less thing to have to worry about later!


This one is a corollary to the previous rule. It’s not always the best use of your time for you to tackle a to-do right when it comes in. Let routine items that have no set deadline and that take a bit longer pile up (in a folder, not in a stack) for a few days, then tackle the whole batch at once.


Hopping back and forth from one activity to another is a big time-waster. If you file a piece of paper then make a call then send an email then file another piece of paper, your brain has to switch gears at each step. Instead try to complete all of one type of to-do before moving on to the next task. Make all of your calls, do all of your filing, and then send all of your emails. You’ll find that you move faster and get more done in a shorter amount of time when you’re in a groove!
These may seem like simple tasks but combined they add up to a great improvement in efficiency and time management in the workplace.

Common Forum/Request/Suggestions / How to Tie a Tie
« on: October 05, 2012, 02:13:04 AM »
Here are some tips for both newbies just starting out with their first tie knot, as well as those more advanced students that would like to add some variety to their tie knots.The choice is yours:

Four in Hand Knot

The Four in Hand Knot makes for a narrow, more discreet and slightly asymmetrical tie knot. It is best suited for a standard button-down dress shirt and works best with wide neckties made from heavy fabrics.
While this tie knot can be worn by anyone, it looks especially well on men with shorter necks as the knot's rather narrow and elongated form stretches the perceived height of the neck a tiny bit.
To tie the Four in Hand Knot, select a necktie of your choice and stand in front of a mirror. Then simply follow the steps below:

    1) Start with the wide end ("W") of your necktie on the right, extending about 12 inches below the narrow end ("N") on the left.

    2) Then cross the wide end over the narrow end.

   3) Turn the wide end back underneath the narrow end.

   4) Continue by bringing the wide end back over in front of the narrow end again.

   5) Then, pull the wide end up and through the loop around your neck.

   6) Hold the front of the knot loosely with your index finger and bring the wide end down through the front loop.

    7) At last, remove your finger and tighten the knot carefully to the collar by holding the narrow end and sliding the knot up.

That's it! That is all there is to the Four in Hand Knot. You will quickly learn to tie this necktie knot in less and less time every time you practice it. Just keep going.

Half Windsor Knot

The Half Windsor Knot, a modest version of the Windsor Knot, is a symmetrical and triangular tie knot that you can use with any dress shirt. It works best with somewhat wider neckties made from light to medium fabrics.

To tie the Half Windsor Knot, select a necktie of your choice and stand in front of a mirror. Then simply follow the steps below:

1) Start with the wide end ("W") of your necktie on the right, extending about 12 inches below the narrow end ("N") on the left.

2) Then cross the wide end over the narrow end.

3) Bring the wide end around and behind the narrow end


4) Then bring the wide end up.

5) Pull the wide end through the loop and to the right.


6) Bring the wide end around front, over the narrow end from right to left.


7) Again, bring the wide end up and through the loop.


8) Then, bring the wide end down through the knot in front.


9) And -- using both hands -- tighten the knot carefully and draw it up to the collar.

And there you are! Simply keep working on this necktie knot and be sure to practice a few times until you are really good at it.

Pratt Knot

The Pratt Knot -- also known as the Shelby Knot -- is tidy and fairly wide, yet not as wide as the Windsor Knot. It is well suited for any dress shirt and somewhat wider neckties made from light to medium fabrics.

To tie the Pratt Knot, select a necktie of your choice and stand in front of a mirror. Then simply follow the steps below:

1) Start with the necktie inside out, with the wide end ("W") on the right, extending about 12 inches below the narrow end ("N") on the left.
2) Then cross the wide end under the narrow end.

3) Take the wide end over and under the narrow end.

4) Pull the loop down and tighten.

5) Then, take the wide end over to the right.

6) Pull the wide end up, behind the loop.

7) And finally, bring the wide end through the knot and tighten gently.

The Windsor Knot is a thick, wide and triangular tie knot that projects confidence. It would therefore be your knot of choice for presentations, job interviews, courtroom appearances etc. It is best suited for spread collar shirts and it's actually quite easy to do.

While just about everyone can use this tie knot to tie his tie, it looks especially well on men with longer necks as its wide form shortens the perceived height of the neck a little bit.

To tie the Windsor Knot, select a necktie of your choice and stand in front of a mirror. Then simply follow the steps below:

1) Start with the wide end ("W") of your necktie on the right, extending about 12 inches below the narrow end ("N") on the left.


2) Then cross the wide end over the narrow end.

3) Bring the wide end up through the loop between the collar and your tie.


4) Then bring the wide end back down.

5) Pull the wide end underneath the narrow end and to the right, back through the loop and to the right again so that the wide end is inside out

6) Bring the wide end across the front from right to left

7) Then pull the wide end up through the loop again.

8) Bring the wide end down through the knot in front.

9) And -- using both hands -- tighten the knot carefully and draw it up to the collar.

Finally you did it! You see, it is not rocket science after all. Simply keep practicing the Windsor Knot a few more times until you can tie this necktie knot within less than two minutes.

How much color can you put on when you want to represent yourself as powerful and professional?

Our effort will be successful when our DIU graduates will make a good career. Career and Job Interview are  correlated. Interviews are always nerve-wracking experiences. Most people rehearse what they will say and try to imagine what questions will be asked. Interviewees will make sure to be on time. They will agonize over the best outfit to wear to make the best impression.
However, most people don't think much about the color of the clothing they will wear to an interview. Of course, this isn't the most important thing to consider when going for a job interview. But studies have shown that colors do trigger subconscious responses in humans. Why not use that to your advantage at a job interview? Any little trick to make a good impression at an interview can't hurt.
The color black is an authoritative color. However, black should not be worn to interviews as a main color. The reason is that too much black can cause a person to appear distant and arrogant. Wear black to interviews as an accessory, such as a tie.
Red is not recommended as a choice to wear to an interview. The reason is because red evokes emotions more than any other color. It is not a good choice when you want to project a calm, cool exterior. Avoid wearing yellow or orange to an interview for the same reason.
Men should avoid both purple and pink. Both colors symbolize femininity. A male wearing pink or purple to an interview would seem to be undecided and unsure of himself.
Now that we've covered which colors not to wear to an interview, let's find out which colors are the best to wear for a job interview.
Blue is one the best choices to wear to an interview. Blue causes its wearer to seem authoritative. At the same time, wearing the color blue makes a person seem trustworthy. This is a perfect representation to make in front of a potential boss at an interview. Another reason to wear blue to an interview is because blue is most people's favorite color. This increases your chances of the interviewer approving your appearance. Studies have even shown that salespeople and people at interviews who wear blue have higher success rates.
Gray is another excellent choice for an interview. Gray denotes authority without being overwhelming.
Brown is a good choice for job interviews as well. Wearing the color brown makes a person seem calm, trustworthy, and level headed.

Some more tips
Of course, these aren't hard and fast interview rules. It totally depends upon the individual situation. If you are seeking a job that requires creativity, wearing neutrals may be an unwise choice. Also, if your potential future job is in a casual environment, the wardrobe interview rules need not be so strict. An excellent middle of the road color choice for an interview is green.

•   You can wear a red dress or shirt to a job interview. But it’s helpful to know something about the organization’s culture at first.
•   When you’re choosing your colors and your attire, be thoughtful on what you’re doing -and who you’re meeting and what message you want to convey. Ask yourself: “What do I really want to project?… This is a person who’s promotable. This is a person who knows how to establish a presence. ”
•   Colors convey meaning and emotion. Red means luck in Chinese, and red and black are power colors. They may work for an executive or contract negotiators’ job. But if you’re interviewing for an administrative job at a nonprofit, you may be better off in a less bold color – blue or brown or something more neutral. White, Off white, Cream – as in a shirt or Kamiz- suggests clean, purity, honesty.  People do have these subconscious reactions to the colors you’re wearing.
•   If you’re trying for professional with some style, pair a dark suit with a bright colored shirt. Or wear the red shirt but make the rest of the outfit a muted gray with plain professional black shoes. Wear  a tie with some zest to bring in a little color. For female, if you love purple, by all means, carry your purple purse. But the purple purse and shoes and dress will be too much. Brighter colors are fine; just ask yourself: How much is right? To be safe, you may want to wear mostly neutrals and wear just a splash of color
•   If you’re heading to a bank, you need to wear something more conservative. If you’re talking to the creative types,  you may be fine in your bright of colors attire. But if you’re meeting the legal department, tone it down: Wear brown, navy, black to show yourself as someone who fits into the organization.

1.   Prepare for the Introduction

o   1
Take an extra 30 minutes to get ready the morning of your interview to look your best. Choose clothing that fits the employer's work environment (formal, semiformal or casual) and properly groom yourself. Style hair plainly, and keep it away from your face. Nails should be clean and short. Splurge on a professional shoe shine.

o   2
Leave your house in plenty of time to arrive at least 15 minutes early for your interview. This way, you'll arrive with enough time to calm any jitters and recheck your appearance in a bathroom mirror.

o   3
Make sure you have fresh breath. Carry mints with you or chew gum until you arrive at the interview location. An age-old trick to combat bad breath is to chew parsley. Before brushing your teeth in the morning, eat a bunch of parsley. Chew it slowly and wash it down with water. Parsley is a natural odor-killer and it doesn't leave you with that tell-tale minty breath, which can also be offensive if it's too strong.

2.   Make Your Introduction

o   4
Stand and step forward to properly introduce yourself to a potential employer.

o   5
Look your interviewer in the eye and introduce yourself.
o   6
Respond in kind to your interviewer's comments. If he or she says, "It's nice to meet you," then you should say, "Thank you. It's nice to meet you as well." Be polite, and your nerves will loosen up during the interview.
3.   Observe Your Interviewer

o   7  Do not sit until your interviewer has done so or asks you to take a seat.
o   8  Note your interviewer's body language. If he or she seems distracted or is fidgeting, lighten the atmosphere by telling an interesting but relevant story about your qualifications.
o   9  Never interrupt an interviewer. Wait until he or she completes a sentence or question before responding or asking a question of your own. If you don't understand a question or statement, ask the interviewer to explain or repeat it.

« on: March 07, 2012, 10:38:29 AM »
Dear Students,
Here are some first job interview tips to make the interview a success. Hope these will help you.

Before Your First Job Interview

Research the Company. Take some time to research the company so you are familiar with how they operate. There is a lot of company information available online.

Learn About the Job. Learn about the job you are looking to get. Ask yourself, "Why am I the best person for the job?" Do you know someone else who works at the company? Ask them about the job, the interview process, and the company.

Watch a Job Interview Video. Watch interview videos that offer tips to really be prepared.
Practice Interviewing. Review typical teen interview questions and answers and practice your responses before you go. Ask a family member or friend to ask you some questions, so you can practice your answers.

Dress Appropriately. Choose simple and appropriate attire for the position you are interviewing for. If you're not sure what to wear ask an adult family member, teacher, or guidance counselor. Take a look at what you shouldn't wear to a first job interview, as well.

Write a Resume. A resume will make a good impression on the interviewer. Bring a copy of your resume, if you have one, and a pen and paper ready to take along for notes. Here's how to write your first resume.

Get Directions and a Ride. If you need a ride to the interview, line it up ahead of time. Make sure you know where you are going for the interview so that you do not get lost and are on time.
During Your First Job Interview

•   Try to stay cool, calm, and collected. Staying as calm as possible, will help you focus on the interviewer.
•   If you feel flustered, pause and take a few deep breathes to gather your thoughts.
•   Be confident in your skills and abilities when you are talking to the interviewer. Remember this is a first job and you aren't expected to have a lot of experience.
•   Try to incorporate what you know about the company looking to hire you.
•   Be honest. If you have sports or other activities that may conflict with your work schedule, tell the interviewer.
•   Make eye contact and avoid distractions.
•   Listen and take notes. Have a question ready to ask at the end of the interview.
•   At the end of the interview thank the interviewer for taking the time to interview you.
After Your First Job Interview

Send a thank you note immediately after the interview. Remind them about how interested you are in the position they are looking to fill. Send a note to each person that interviewed you.

আমার বন্ধু আমাকে  পাঠিয়েছে এবং আমাকে এই কথাগুলো ছড়িয়ে দেয়ার জন্য উৎসাহ যুগিয়েছে। আমরা সবাই-ই যদি এই ছোট্ট সাধারণ সণাক্তকরণ উপায়টা শিখে ফেলি, তবে হয়তো আমরা স্ট্রোকের ভয়ংকর অভিজ্ঞতা থেকে আমাদের প্রিয়জনদের রক্ষা করতে পারবো।

একটি সত্যি গল্পঃ

একটা অনুষ্ঠানে গিয়ে একজন ভদ্রমহিলা হঠাৎ হোঁচট খেয়ে পড়ে গেলেন। উঠে দাঁড়িয়ে তিনি বললেন, সবকিছু ঠিক আছে, মেঝের টাইলসে তার নতুন জুতোর হীল বেঁধে যাওয়ায় তিনি পড়ে গিয়েছিলেন। কেউ একজন এম্বুলেন্স ডাকার কথা বললেও তিনি তাতে রাজি হলেন না।

সবকিছু ঠিকঠাক করে, পরিস্কার করে তিনি নতুন করে প্লেটে খাবার নিলেন। যদিও মনে হচ্ছিলো যেন তিনি একটু কেঁপে কেঁপে উঠছেন। অনুষ্ঠানের সম্পূর্ণ সময় জুড়েই তিনি উপস্থিত থাকলেন। পরদিন দুপুরে ভদ্রমহিলার স্বামী ফোন করে জানালেন, তাকে হাসপাতালে নিয়ে যাওয়া হয়েছে। সন্ধ্যা ছয়টার সময় তিনি মারা গেলেন।

মূল যে ঘটনা ঘটেছিল, তা হলো, তিনি অনুষ্ঠান চলাকালীন সময় স্ট্রোক করেছিলেন। সেখানে যদি কেউ জানতেন, কিভাবে স্ট্রোক সনাক্ত করা সম্ভব, তাহলে হয়তো ভদ্রমহিলা আজও বেঁচে থাকতেন।

সবাই যে মৃত্যুবরণ করে, তা নয়। অনেকের ঠাঁই হয় বিছানায়, সাহায্যহীন, ভরসাহীন মূমুর্ষূ অবস্থায়। মাত্র তিনটা মিনিট সময় নিয়ে এটা পড়ে ফেলুন।

একজন মস্তিষ্কবিশেষজ্ঞ বলেছেন, যদি একজন স্ট্রোকের শিকার রোগীকে স্ট্রোক হবার তিন ঘন্টার মধ্যে হাসপাতালে নেয়া যায়, তবে তাকে সম্পূর্ণভাবে সুস্থ অবস্থায় ফেরত পাওয়া সম্ভব। শুধু আমাদের জানতে হবে কিভাবে স্ট্রোক চেনা যায়, এবং কিভাবে রোগীকে উল্লেখ্য সময়ের মধ্যে মেডিকেল কেয়ারে নেয়া যায়।

স্ট্রোককে চিনুন...

সহজ তিনটি ধাপঃ- S T ও R...পড়ুন এবং জানুন!

মাঝে মাঝে স্ট্রোকের উপসর্গ সনাক্ত করা অনেক কঠিন হয়ে পড়ে। আমাদের অজ্ঞতার কারণেই নেমে আসে যাবতীয় দুর্যোগ। স্ট্রোকের শিকার রোগীর মস্তিষ্কে যখন ভয়ানক রকম ক্ষতি হয়ে যাচ্ছে, পাশে দাঁড়ানো প্রিয়জনটিই হয়তো বুঝতে পারছে না, কি অপেক্ষা করছে তাদের কাছের মানুষের জীবনে।

সহজ উপায়ে স্ট্রোক সনাক্ত করার উপায়, সহজ তিনটি প্রশ্ন জিজ্ঞেস করুনঃ

S – Smile রোগীকে হাসতে বলুন।

T – Talk রোগীকে আপনার সাথে সাথে একটি বাক্য বলতে বলুন। উদাহরণঃ আজকের দিনটা অনেক সুন্দর।

R – Raise hands. রোগীকে একসাথে দুইহাত উপরে তুলতে বলুন।

এর কোনো একটিতে যদি রোগীর সমস্যা বা কষ্ট হয়, তৎক্ষণাৎ দেরি না করে তাকে হাসপাতালে নিয়ে যান। এবং চিকিৎসককে সমস্যাটি খুলে বলুন। (রোগী বলতে স্ট্রোকের শিকার সন্দেহ করা ব্যক্তি বোঝানো হয়েছে)

সনাক্তকরণের আরেকটি উপায় হচ্ছে, রোগীকে বলুন তার জিহবা বের করতে। যদি তা ভাঁজ হয়ে থাকে, বা অথবা যদি তা বেঁকে যেকোনো একদিকে চলে যায়, সেটাও স্ট্রোকের লক্ষণ। তৎক্ষণাৎ তাকে হাসপাতালে নিয়ে যান।

The following issues are very important for IELTS speaking test interview board
1. Fluency- You will be given 2 mins to introduce yourself initially.They will emphasize on your fluency level.
2. Grammar-At the time of speaking you have to be careful on your grammar.You have to reply in that tense in which they will ask you the question.For example DO YOU WORK? Here the tense is present indefinite tense so you have to ans in the same way.
3. Attitude-In the board your attitude manner way of talking will also be observed.
4. Eye Contact-You have to keep eye contact.It reflects your confidence level.
5. Time-Time limit is very important.You can not remain silent as the entire interview will be recorded and  they will mark on that after listening the recording later.You have to complete your answere within the time
6. Vocabulary-Your vocabulary level should be high.
7. Gesture-Your movement should be very descent  There are many people who move their legs in the interview broad which is very unpleasant.Try to give a pleasant expression with smiley face not too much.

Which person is most helpless with any physical disability?
I think its BLIND people.
Few days ago we got a CV of a female from BERDO (The Blind Education and Rehabilitation Development Organization) who has completed her Masters from Dhaka University and asking for a job in DIU.Yesterday she came along with the  Executive Director of that Organization for a job interview.I already several times talk with that person regarding this applicant.But I didn't know that a big surprise was waiting for me.The Executive Director is also a blind person which was totally unexpected for me.But they were full of life smart .After talking to them I was speechless that what we do with our eyes and what they are doing without eyes.We always misuse our most valuable asset in doing harm to other people, in watching useless things, doing unethical issues, doing road accident, killing people,robbing,hijacking,depriving deceiving people from their rights, see others suffering by remaining reluctant and what not.Why we don't use our sight power in doing good for the society, nation,country and finally the world.Just think blind people never see the beauty of nature and people but what we do?We always search and see negative,bad things in other, think what damage can be done to other.We hesitate to do any help, appreciation and recognition.

I salute my authority as they are at least thinking trying planning in that way to appoint a blind women and giving her a chance to lead a life like a human.Thanks DIU.
