  • To find the right job and to succeed in our career, we need various sets of skills, some of which are specific to the career that we choose and some useful to us whatever career we choose. The technical and professional skills sets that are needed in our career may vary depending on the work we do, our clients, the location where we are working, the requirements of our job, the level and hierarchy at which we work. They are career specific, each career demands a different set of them. But communication and language skills are fairly common to all careers. So it is crucial for us to learn them as they are going to be helpful to us irrespective of the career we choose.
  • To have a successful career, we must build strong communication and language skills apart from the analytical, interpersonal, professional and technical skills. The scope of this presentation is limited to a discussion of the first two – communication skills and English language skills. Communication skills are language neutral and refer to our ability to communicate our ideas confidently, correctly and fluently. English language skills refer to our ability to use – listen, speak, read and write – English language or all our career needs. Let us discuss some useful tips to develop these skills in the remaining slides.
  • Success consists in being successful, not in having the potential for success. Any wide piece of ground is the potential site of a palace, but there is no palace till it is built. (Fernando Pessoa, Portuguese poet)
