Get out and get wet

It's raining outside and if you aren't in the rain you won't get wet.

I am not talking of the watery downpour happening outside. I am referring to the current flood of job requirements for aerospace domain in the private and public sector.

There was not a better time to be in aerospace than this.

So go get out and get wet.

Upload your latest skills and achievement in your resume and float it.

The rain isn't there forever, get the most out of it.

If you have seen a requirement, and you doubt if you suit that requirement, do the safest thing, send in your resume and let them decide.

If you aren't sure you qualify, give yourself benefit of doubt and shoot that resume.

I have seen, most of the time, we underestimate our capabilities and don't just send in our resume. That's a mistake.

I am not saying shoot your resumes for all CEO jobs that you see, but if an interesting and worthwhile offer shows up, don't just let it go. Give it a shot.

Effort is the only barrier, not ability.

I am in the industry for 7 odd years now. And if I have one thing to tell any aesi student or graduate, then this is it.

Effort is the only barrier there is. We mistakely use ability as an excuse.

Put in the effort, give your dues. That's the only thing that stands between you and your success. Ability is just crystalization of efforts.

Keep putting the effort. If you aren't seeing the results, look deep at your efforts.

Are you putting effort on the correct activities? Do you need to increase the effort?

So as you begin preparing for gate 2011, for aesi exams and for the job interviews always remember effort is the only barrier.

As always, your comments are always welcome.

Actions not thoughts

Read the following from thesimpledollar.com

You can think about your career all day long, but if you’re not volunteering for hard tasks, taking classes to improve your skill set, or putting your nose to the grindstone on the dull tasks, you’re going to remain one of those middle-of-the-road workers no matter how many great thoughts you have.

Mastery and being remarkable comes from actions. Thoughts won't take you anywhere. So start taking action.

Here are two things you can immediately start...

1. Start a small personal project that uses your knowledge and skill to create something useful for others.
2. Read the help manual of the software you mostly use.

5 quick questions AeSI student/graduate asks

Following are 5 questions I am always asked. They find a way to seep into my inbox with regular frequency.

So finally decided to answer them here. Search the blog for more elaborate answers.

Can we go for masters after AMAeSI

Yes why not. So many have already done it, why not you.

Is AeSI evil?

No. But it depends. As after every exam results, this thought dominated my mind.

Do private firms recruit aesi graduates?

Yes. Aesi graduates have infected every organisation. So rest assured. From private to public, you are welcome everywhere.

What stream to choose for section B?

Any stream that you are comfortable. Every stream has equal chances of giving you a great career money wise. But if you want to be truly happy with your work, choose the stream you are more comfortable and enjoy regardless of the money aspect.

Which skills do I need to get ahead?

Many. But if I have to choose one and only one, then it has to be communication skills. Develop it. Both verbal and written communication skills can take you a long way!!

I am stuck in the same AeSI subject, what should i do?

Saw this email from an AeSI student.

afraid if i m to stuck in SecA due to that paper only. so i need ur urgent help regarding which books to follow that adheres to the question pattern so that i can at least pass the exam. its my 3rd year running..and i have no time. "

My first comment to him will be, go to a quite place, have some time and brainstorm what is it that he is getting wrong?

Keep AeSI out of the blame game and think hard on what can be your faults.

Just write out wherever comes to the mind. Don't judge. Keep thinking and pushing yourself for the reason on what is going wrong. Think back to all exams and find the causes.

Once you have number of causes, you will definitely begin seeing a pattern emerging. Now is the judging time. Find the main reasons that you see now.

Is is the lack of your understanding of the subject? Or is it your lack of expressing it in the exams. Or is it a combination of both?

You can fail in the exams only for two reasons, either you lack understanding of the subject or the understanding is not expressed well in the exam papers.

Find the reason and implement steps in your study routine to eliminate it.

Hope this helps. Blog readers, do you have any other ideas, feel free to share them here.

AeSIAA industry talk at GIE

I am little late this time. But if you are in chennai, head to GIE at 2 pm today.

Four senior members of AeSIAA are there for industry talks. They are planning to deliver talks with the aim of connecting the AeSI syllabus to the industry needs.

The major benefit a student can get out this is you will see the big picture. Know where your studies will ultimately connect you to the industry. And this gives you an opportunity to quiz the people who are already in the industry.

So head for GIE today and utilize this opportunity!!

Dig yourself a hole

This a direct reprint of advice Seth Godin's blog. 

Do this and no one can stop you from being a star!!

Make big promises.

Burn your boats.

Set yourself up in a place where you have few options and the stakes are high.

Focused energy and serious intent will push you to do your best work. You have nowhere to run, nowhere to hide. (Better than the alternative).

Are you doing any of this?

Free online course at Stanford University on artificial intelligence

An excellent piece on self-education from the NYTimes:

A free online course at Stanford University on artificial intelligence, to be taught this fall by two leading experts from Silicon Valley, has attracted more than 58,000 students around the globe -- a class nearly four times the size of Stanford's entire student body.

What's more, the class is completely free, including evaluation through online tools. You won't get Stanford credit, but you will get a "statement of accomplishment" for attending.

Now you can see your answersheets from AeSI exams

Dear All,
Please read this news

NEWS FROM: http://ibnlive.in.com/news/students-have-right-to-inspect-answersheets-sc/174372-3.html

New Delhi: The examinees have a right to inspect answer-sheets under
the transparency law, the Supreme Court on Tuesday ruled. The
evaluated answer-sheets are covered under the definition of the
"information" under the Right to Information Act, a bench comprising
Justices RV Raveendran and AK Patnaik said.
It upheld the judgement of the Calcutta High Court which had said
"rejection for inspection of answer-sheets cannot be sustained".
The apex court dismissed the appeals of Central Board of Secondary
Education CBSE), West Bengal Board of Secondary Education, West Bengal
Council for Higher Education, University of Calcutta, Institute of
Chartered Accountants of India and West Bengal Central School Service
Commission which had challenged the February 5, 2009 judgement.

The apex court agreed with the findings of the High Court that the
examination conducting bodies do not retain the evaluated answer-
sheets under any "fiduciary capacity".

Thanks Arvind for sharing the news!!

What are your views on this? Is it a good news? Can it be implimented
in AeSI?

Why I don't pass a subject in AeSI?

I don't know. But let's me share what I did when I didn't pass.

After blasting aesi for the result, I usually turned to my own short coming.

And to my surprise I always found that there were some things that I would have done better. I was never able to outrightly blame aesi for my failure. A shadow of doubt always remained that I had lacked somewhere. I missed something.

But the act of thinking back and trying to ascertain the reason of my failure surely helped me see the cracks in my own study system. I learnt from them and finally I did pass those subjects.

So all I can suggest you guys and gals is once the amaesi aesi results are in. Take stock on what you did right and what went wrong? Why you failed? What you did in your passing subject and what you didn't in the failed subject?

An hour of this can go a long way in improving your studies.

Share your views. They are always welcome.

It takes time to bake a cake!!

It takes time to bake a cake!!

Same is true for acquiring mastery in a skill or subject. You don't acquire knowledge or skills in one go. It takes time.

Acknowledge this fact and keep working on that skill and subject. You will surely master it!!

The real thing is stick with the practice! Sachin didn't became great just with one match, he baked his skills 10+ long years before he finally made his debut for India!

Give yourself some time and stick to it, you are destined to be a star!!

Holiday and a challenge for you all.

As you might have noticed, this whole July I was on a sabbath. Posts
were non existent on myaesi.

I had an accident and there were other things on my mind.

I am hoping to pick things up now and hopefully get the blog up to
speed this month.

Thanks for your patience.

By the way if you are holidaying after the exams, or passing time in
office, may I suggest that you all start one small project.

The project can be anything. Only critera is that this project should
not be more than two weeks long and it should produce something that
you can share with everyone.

I'll begin something from my end. August 15th is the deadline.

So what do you say? Game on.
