This is possible only when you interact and participate and explore.
- Learn to organise different events.
When you participate you have a well-structured organising committee formed. It consists of a vice president, president and the treasurer. Everyone has a set of responsibilities to deal with.

As a youngster I now understand that I have grown up and evolved as a person. I can now express my thoughts and words better to people. While working in an organisation all these experiences come handy. It also helps in presentation skills. As BMS students presentations are the only interesting things apart from the subjects that we study. It creates an environment of professionals. Presentations don’t always mean power point slide changes. It is about elaborating the topic given. Speech, diction and vocabulary matters. You learn and grow.
It may be the smallest thing that you do but you can do it well again and again if you know you have participated in a similar type of work. Only attending college sitting for lectures may make you a smart student. But in order to be an all-rounder you need to take part in different activities and events.
Your resume is something that will show your achievements and the extracurricular activities that you do. This matters too apart from your grades in school and college. You can add all these activities on to your resume. It shows that you have participated in other activities and you acquire certain leadership skills that may help you in your future job. Another important thing is if you have worked in a team. Team work is something that all organisations follow. It is no more about an individual now it is more about a team. There are organisational and departmental heads. The head of all the departments form a team. This team have certain people under them. All the members in the team are supposed to work accordingly and with harmony. A lot of companies hire people that have an idea what it is to work in a team. Thus by working with all different groups in church and even in different college events and projects show how you have exposure of being around different people. This builds in a confidence level and far more experience than you may think. It also instils in you a sense of how to deal with different people in different environment. You also have the knowledge of how to behave with people in a team and further in an organisation. This in turn will help you do better in work life In future and helps you develop a professional attitude. You know and understand when to be in formal terms and who all to be in formal terms with. Your boss thus knows that indeed she / he has potential and can do better.
