The rise of digitalisation and automation brought several changes in the Indian job sector; Owing to this, the way we impart and consume education went through a transformation as well. To succeed in any industry, degree, practical experience, and proficiency in domain-specific skills are certainly important. However, in order to efficiently use technology and apply your hard skills, it is extremely important to brush your soft skills before entering any organisation.

Earlier, freshers only had a degree, few college assignments, and projects to talk about during interviews; however, the concept of internships, online trainings, and skill-based learning have completely changed the scenario today. Nowadays, even freshers are expected to hold a record of some internship experience and depict excellent soft skills during interviews. This is vital as in today’s era, robots and automation can simply carry out various day to day tasks, but soft skills such as analytical thinking, communication, active learning, and creativity retain and increase the value of employees in organisations.


To fulfil employers’ expectations, scholars need to strengthen their command on soft skills and one of the best ways to achieve the same is through e-learning. With its self-controllable pace and real-world examples, online training ensures optimal learning and soft skill development within no time.

Here are some in-demand soft skills that you can develop through online trainings

1. Analytical thinking

To find out measurable and accurate solutions for different problems, analytical thinking is extremely essential. Data and information analysis is one of the most essential parts of analytical thinking which can be developed through online trainings. Every day, organisations have to deal with large amounts of data. This information needs to be analysed every now and then to keep a tap on organisations’ growth or decline in different key areas and to strategise further growth. This is why people who are able to handle huge amounts of data to produce good insights and help in taking informed decisions are considered great assets in every organisation.

Having good analytical skills could increase your chances of getting selected during interviews over other applicants. To strengthen your analytical skills, online trainings such as data science and advanced excel prove beneficial. The data science training teaches you to read a CSV file, understand operators, variables, dictionaries, functions, and data structures. Moreover, it lets you learn about data distribution, probability, data statistics, and types of testing while understanding the concepts of descriptive stats and inferential stats. Similarly, in the advanced excel training, you can learn In-depth lessons on formulas, functions, lookup functions, and data validation. You eventually learn how to automate, analyze, and present Excel data in the most effective manner.

2. Problem-solving

We all deal with multiple problems in our lives whether small or huge. Ultimately, the only thing that keeps us going is our ability to analyse and resolve these problems. During any situation of crisis, employers always consider those employees who have the ability to resolve issues from ground level. Online programming trainings such as web development, core Java, Angular, and Android app development, strengthen your problem-solving skills.

Programming is one such field where your problem-solving skills are largely addressed. While coding, the training helps you to develop a habit of computational thinking and learn to simplify complicated issues through simple codes. An aesthetic design could surely please the users at one go, but unless it solves one of their problems like shopping, buying food, or shipping a parcel across, it is of no use. Enrolling in any of the programming trainings allows you to deeply identify, analyse, plan, practice, and resolve multiple problems not only during coding but also in your day to day tasks.

3. Creativity

Automation has brought enough technical efficiency, but creativity is one such segment where human involvement would always be required. Every organisation has multiple competitors today so, to stand out and capture the attention of their target segment, companies need to be creative.

Scholars can enrol in online trainings such as AutoCAD which helps to polish the creative skills. The training teaches you to precisely work on lines, points, circles, and arcs, shapes, study the key concepts of layers and a lot more. In an industrial project, it also requires you to work on 2D drafts and 3D models and come up with unique and creative designs. Whether you are an architectural, mechanical or electrical engineer, every new plan requires you to be creative than ever before. In fact, students who choose digital marketing trainings also develop their creative skills faster. Your skills in such training are polished when you plan and execute various digital marketing campaigns. Above all, online trainings develop your thinking and allow you to creatively plan and implement everyday tasks in your work premises.

All of these skills are put to use when you start working on assignments, assessment tests, code challenges, quizzes, exercises, and industrial projects that are provided in every online training. E-learning helps you to not just learn but implement and test your soft skills through such practically advanced options. For freshers with little or no working experience, soft skills are really essential during the screening process as it is the prerequisite based on which candidates are shortlisted.

Currently, when users set up WhatsApp Pay in India, the service only verifies the phone number linked to your bank account to enable UPI-based transactions

Facebook-owned WhatsApp may soon ask users to verify their identity to make payments on the platform. According to XDA Developers, new strings spotted in the latest WhatsApp beta release suggest that the messenger will require users to upload verification documents to continue using payments on WhatsApp. Currently, when users set up WhatsApp Pay in India, the service only verifies the phone number linked to your bank account to enable UPI-based transactions. In Brazil, the messenger uses Facebook Pay to validate users' credit or debit cards to facilitate payments.

At the moment, the service doesn't require users to submit any identity verification documents to make payments. However, that might change soon, the report said. WhatsApp v2.21.22.6 beta includes a few new strings which suggest that users might have to submit identity verification documents to continue using payments.

The identity verification might be limited to those who use WhatsApp Pay to receive payments for their businesses. UPI-based apps, like Google Pay, PhonePe and even WhatsApp Pay don't require users to submit any documents to transfer or receive money. However, wallet apps like PayTM do ask for KYC verification as per RBI guidelines.

WhatsApp is yet to make an official announcement regarding this change. Since the new strings have just made their way to the beta version, it might be a while before the company reveals any details, the report said. (IANS/ MBI)

By Rajesh U. Pandya

Although the world is recovering from coronavirus pandemic, we must not lower our guards and stay alert when it comes to hand hygiene to curb the spread of the deadly virus. But are we paying sufficient attention to our nail hygiene? Our nails are the index of well-being for our entire body. The manifestations of several critical diseases were first detected within the dirty nails.

The ignorance towards our nails becomes the breeding ground of harmful bacteria. These germs enter our body through our hands because in India we eat through our bare hands. Therefore, nail hygiene is crucial and without it hand hygiene is incomplete.

Practising good nail hygiene involves following a systematic process to ensure the longevity of our nail health. It includes ensuring that food particles, dirt and dust are not sticking to our nails and there is no build-up of nail bacteria. Thankfully, contrary to popular belief, it is not that difficult to maintain good nail hygiene. A little diligence, awareness and attention are sufficient to keep our nails healthy.

Avoiding nail hygiene makes you prone to viral infections
Due to constant negligence towards the cleanliness of the nails, many serious issues like bacterial and viral infections arise. Often these lead to serious health problems. Our hand hygiene is not perfect till the time we clean the undersides of our nails besides washing hands regularly. Most people don't mind sharing nail clippers with others. This is however an extremely unhygienic practice. When we don't share any of our personal hygiene products then why do we share our nail clippers? Nails harbour abundant germs, bacteria and viruses and sharing nail clippers is equivalent to exchanging those microorganisms.
