Leadership Instincts

The more a college student engaged in academic and extra-curricular activities, the better will be his or her career success, according to a new research.

Participation in student organisations, clubs, competitions and group activities help in making contact with professional communities. Critical thinking skills are also improved in such students This results in better self-esteem teak work, satisfaction with student life and better initial career earnings.
