How can you Ensure that you get a Job after Graduation? – The Importance of English Communication Skills in the Workplace

By | Blog | No Comments

There has been a lot of talk recently about the supposed ‘un-employability’ of graduates in India. Many CEOs have made such statements in the last few weeks. The CEO of Tech Mahindra, C.P. Gurnani, said in a recent interview that 94% of engineering graduates are not fit to be hired. Another recent study said that only 7% of MBA pass outs are employable in India. The number of college graduates in India, as well as the number of educational institutions, has been continuously growing year on year. Then why is there such a large gap in employment for them? What essential skills are our Indian graduates lacking?

What most people fail to realize, is that a degree and technical know-how is not enough to land a good job and do well in the workplace. Strong communication skills are also very important. A hiring manager working for an education company said that the two most important qualities he looks for in a candidate are English speaking skills, and knowledge of Microsoft Excel.

A large number of graduates in India are not fluent in speaking English, and hence they lag behind in spite of having all the technical knowledge required for the job. English is the language of business, and in today’s day and age, English fluency is absolutely essential.
