Corporate Life

Hello All,

Long time since I have scribbled. Now in the early phase of my corporate life I wish to share some gyaan with those who would be managers soon.

In the next few years,
1. You will learn to operate 3 critical machines
* Scanner
* Printer
* Xerox Machine

2. You will  learn to use 3 high end softwares
* Microsoft Word
* Microsoft Excel
* Microsoft PowerPoint

3. You will learn to use 3 great short cuts
* Ctrl+C
* Ctrl+V
* Ctrl+S

4. You will learn to say three very important words for professional life
* Yes sir
* Ok sir.
* I’ll just do that sir

5. When you really want to quit, you will learn to
* Wake up early
* Sleep late
* Continue to work

6. You will learn to: –
* Face Monday
* Fight for 5 days
* Wait for Friday

7. You will learn to give reasons to family friends and loved ones for not making
* Phone Calls
* Messages
* Mails

8. You will learn to celebrate these things far away from loved ones
* Birthday
* New Year
* Festivals

9. In next one year, people would say
* You learned
* You earned
* You enjoyed

10. But when you compare yourself with you
* You just sustained…
* You just tolerated…
* You just survived… for bucks

11. You will survive
* For convenience of your family
* To avoid blame of the society
* To get tag of employment

12. When you already know that you have got the wrong train, you will learn
* To rejoice
* To be Happy
* To smile

So folks welcome to the Corporate life :)

    Not internshala material. At most, worthy of an fb post. Disappointed!
