KOHIMA — Students are told to identify their strength and also focus on their interest in order to excel in life.

This was stated by an independent management consultant, John Meyase, during the 13th edition of Zoommax, an annual management fest, organised by the School of Management Studies of Nagaland University held at RCEMPA, Jotsoma, on Thursday on the theme ‘Manifesting forte’.

Highlighting on the prevailing stiff competition in accruing job, Meyase informed that the competition would only get more difficult in the future. In order to excel in life, he urged upon the students to identify their strengths and also focus on their interest.

“Without the two traits-strength and interest, it is impossible to do well in life,” he said.

He also encouraged the students to come out of their comfort zone and to accept challenges in order to achieve success in life. He further told the students to be job creators instead of job seekers.

Entrepreneurship is a risky business

Professor G Thong, Pro Vice-Chancellor of Nagaland University, lamented over poor work culture in Nagaland.

‘Many people waste their time instead of contributing to the pay they are drawing’, he said and added that sincerity and honesty will bring about change in society. 

He said that events like this will help students to be persistent and urged them to take initiative. He also advised students to adopt basic practices such as the use of eco-friendly technology, indigenous technology, life support systems, protection of wildlife, and cleanliness. 

‘It is our responsibility to teach society how to reduce, recycle, and reuse. We have to teach society how to take care of one another as well as teach society to stop cruelty to animals. There is too much cruelty to animals,’ he added.

Convener of the 13th Zoommax, Wewute Akami, informed that six colleges in Kohima and three departments from Nagaland University are participating in this year’s fest.

Started in 2009 by the School of Management, NU, the management fest is organised every year with the purpose to provide a platform for students to expose their talents and skills.

Highlights for the two-day event included the voice of Zoommax, sketching, photography, Mad-ads, mock interviews, beat contest, Mr and Miss Zoommax, mock interviews, business plan, dance till dawn, and straight talk.
