Have you updated yourself today?

Did you read the latest news or headlines today? Not the page 3 columns or movie stars' gossip but real news. Did you have a look at how your companies or dream companies are faring today in the stock market? Did you understand what political moves will affect your career?
Well, this is absolutely essential, not just for those specializing in Finance or International Trade but for everyone. Why?
These are the questions interviewers ask. If you really understand General Awareness, then it cannot be created in a day or two by mugging up a few facts 2-3 days before your interview date. It is about real understanding of the issues & their consequences. For eg. do you understand why the rupee is deteriorating as compared to US dollar and why India is discouraging import of Gold?
Interviewers are not asking you news, they are asking you your views, which are formed only if you read, discuss and constantly update yourself about those topics.
These news affect you. You might not be earning but the increasing inflation stops you from buying the latest smart phone due to a pocket money cut. Even the IPL match fixing causes you to loose interest in your favourite teams or players.
If these affect so many aspects of your life, the best way to handle their outcome is to know them in full.
News are available everywhere. It is every day happenings in your nighbourhood or city or state that make up news. Be aware and be a part of these happenings.
So, the next time you download an app for your smart phone, make sure it has something to do with being updated about the latest news.
