    Dont judge quality of an engineer based on his english skills !!

    Many people make these mistakes and later repent.

    I’m not judging engineers based on their english skills. In fact, in past I’ve hired an engineer who couldn’t speak a sentence in English but was terrifyingly good at programming & logic.

    What I’m pointing at is, the ‘casual approach’ these engineers have in their communication. For example, the person who wrote above message could have written which exam (s)he is willing to take, if (s)he is a student or a professional, where in the world he is located and relevant information that might have helped me helped him.

    Got my point? Read more ‘an engineer wrote’ posts and you’ll see.

    It is not about speaking/writing good English but about communication skills which most of us lack in (various reasons, in my case it was my small town background where this was not part of our education and to add to it my English is not so good either).

    I wish schools/colleges/professional Institutes would introduce workshops where we can be taught how to write a covering note while sending a resume, basic courtesies to be observed while going for an interview, how to take an interview call etc etc. In fact these workshops should be made mandatory…

    @ Big K: It’s great that your selection criteria does not include eng skills but as an employer I think you must organize Communication training workshops for your staff. It will not only make them confident but all improve their overall performance and yes! You benefit from it too, you will have employees who are a complete package. It is a great way to boost their morale!

    I call it the Communications Quotient just like we have IQ and it can be improved, exactly the same way…
