Know the different styles and when to use them: MLA, APA, Chicago & Harvard
You have probably heard several times, that when you are writing an academic paper it is important to use referencing for your writing. But ever asked why it is so important?
If you are writing a piece of work and are making use of other people’s ideas then you have to reference them. To do so you must include detailed information on all the sources you took consultations on, and they should be mentioned in both within your text (as in-text citation) as well as at the end of your writing as a properly formatted reference list.

When we speak of confidence, an image of a smart guy with clean hair, dressed in fitted formals who smiles like the receptionist at a hotel lobby and can get any girl’s number at the bar comes to mind. But is that genuine confidence?
Thanks to pop culture our idea of confidence (like everything else) is vastly distorted. So, here in this post we would like to discuss three different types of confidence and how you can build them in each area. Be it at work, with friends, within your romantic life and amidst superiors, it really does not matter.
To develop better confidence is the same as practising for a test, identify the area where you are the weakest and get to work into developing that area. Continue reading –>
It is that time of the year again where the dead become undead and walk out of their peaceful graves right into the human abode. Whether you are a devout believer of all things paranormal or simply brush the spooky aside with a smirk of science, there are several more chilling things that take place in our lives. The chills of witnessing such horrors are much stronger than simply watching a jump-scare video or the best of Halloween horror movie re-runs.
These horrors are more spine-chilling than just being unprepared for your Halloween costume of the year or running out of dip at your Halloween shindig. Our career path post an MBA is no short of an adventure-filled horror movie.

We are all in hot pursuit of hunting down happiness in this dark wood of a world. I have personally never yet met any individual who does not want to get happier. But no one ever thinks of how to be happier! We all just assume what we are doing is right.
Where do we get this hefty amount of presumptuous confidence?
Why we have definitely all seen the movies, and we do watch the Academy Awards, those smiling faces cannot lie?! And do not forget our almost certainly more successful Facebook friends who definitely have a more fulfilling life! Just have a look at their smiling profile pictures with regular uploads of their most certainly happy life.
But is that the whole truth?
We think that is all nothing but a trick! Things that we humans have been conditioned to think will finally make us happy are nothing but hollowed farce. Continue reading –>
You may be familiar with the proverb, ‘First Impression is the last impression’. Several psychologists have researched the importance of first impression and majority of them have concluded that it is highly responsible for the way people will perceive you in the future. Although some psychologists believe that in some cases- such as in a relationship, you may get a second chance for building your reputation. However, they agreed with the fact that in a business scenario your first impression may determine whether you will be able to score that deal or not.
The Ancient Study of Non-Verbal Communication
Body language is a powerful tool of communication. In fact, the ancient philosophers were curious about how one can judge another person based on his/her appearance and style. One of the greatest philosophers of all time, Aristotle divided the communication process into three sections. And they are: Ethos, Pathos and Logos. Continue reading –>
