English Language Competency!



I just interviewed a girl for a TV producer position. I had to ask her to leave the room within 2 minutes as she could not carry a proper conversation with me in English. I asked her. "Do you know how serious this is to not be able to communicate in English?" I would like to tell you all out there that your English skills are important. But more importantly, you must all have fundamental communication skills that includes interpersonal and a good command of the English language. If you cannot even carry a normal conversation in English with me, how can I hire you? So before you are completely outdated, its time you do something about it.

The communication barrier should not be a problem to the graduates as they learn it at university level. Just apply and be confident with what you want to express. Mistakes happen, but we learn and developed from that mistakes. Should not be shy, that's an important part of commnucations.
