“Significance of JAM Session for Students” - Professor M.S.Rao
"I only wish I could find an institute that teaches people how to listen. Business people need to listen at least as much as they need to talk. Too many people fail to realize that real communication goes in both directions." - Lee Iacocca, Former CEO Chrysler Corporation
JAM is the acronym for Just A Minute. In this process, students are asked to speak on a topic of their choice or on a given topic for a minute. It is conducted for students to improve their communication skills. It helps the introvert and shy students to take initiative and speak on the topic for a minute. It helps students condense the entire essence precisely in their mind, and speak only the relevant aspects within a minute. In addition, it can be used during the teaching session as well by the teachers. After completion of the teaching session, the teachers can ask the volunteers or handpick some students and ask them to speak what they understood about the session. By this, students will be able to listen and learn well. It is an integral part of Meka’s Method, an innovative tool coined by this author.
Some companies conduct JAM session during their employment interview to test the communication skills of the candidates. That is the reason JAM is included in Campus Recruitment Training Programs to encourage students to improve their communication skills thus enhancing their employability skills. Hence, students must actively participate in JAM sessions in educational institutions to improve their communication skills and grab employment opportunities.
"The two words 'information' and 'communication' are often used interchangeably, but they signify quite different things. Information is giving out; communication is getting through." - Sydney J. Harris
