It’s a hardcore and sad fact that more than one-third of the millions that graduate in our country each year are unemployable. A survey across the country has found a majority of graduates lacked adequate "soft skills" to be employed in the industry. Lack of communication skills lands Indian students in low paid jobs.
It’s a hardcore and sad fact that more than one-third of the millions that graduate in our country each year are unemployable. A survey across the country has found a majority of graduates lacked adequate “soft skills” to be employed in the industry. Lack of communication skills lands Indian students in low paid jobs. One of the challenges I face routinely as a teacher is to instill knowledge apart from curriculum into students who are short of manners, etiquette, skills and confidence to come forward in life. The main factor contributing to this inferiority complex is the poor communication skills. Many of the students, even if they have studied in the English medium schools, lack the ability to write or speak a coherent sentence. Unfortunately there is a false assumption that, students coming from English medium schools are already equipped to communicate well. This book attempts to mention what is needed in students and which is not mentioned in the curriculum to make them future ready. How can they cultivate good habits and hobbies for a successful career ahead. This book tries to encourage development of good habits, which ultimately will lead to good skills. This book is a compilation of my personal experiences as a college teacher and every chapter in this book represents my dream and a perpetual urge to see students adapting it as a way of life.
