Once I asked the same questing at one of my old student who is having a habit of switching jobs very frequently. He said, “sir, in interviews, for a complex technical question, if one is able to say the answer – ‘I don’t know’ – in an indirect way with better English and style then most of the time, it will be a good and satisfactory answer”.
💡 If the question is ‘The Role of Communication Skills in Getting an IT Job’ then, option ‘B’ only is the answer.
💡 But, I believe that option ‘B’ is just like a ‘key’ to open a workshop door. In side the workshop we can not do the work only with the key. Inside the workshop we have to be equipped with some additional ‘tools’. So option ‘A’ is also needed to survive after passing the door.
s.. but the MNC and highlevel companies need good communication but the medium level companies expect from the employee they can understand the situation or not. this kind of companies need good programming skills more than the communication
My answer is D………..
To get a job in IT field 3 things are necessary:
1. Communication/Soft skills
2. Programming/Debugging skills
3. Presence of mind/way of presentation.
all are interrelated…
wait… just think about the situations u gonna come across…
How can we express ourself to them (at the time of interview, understanding the requirements/Client needs, when we go abroad, performance,productivity and so on)
whether we have such things are not, damn sure we can survive. How long?
we should not make a decision blindly.
Last but not the least, even if u dont have such things, we can get a job. Thats the ultimate truth.
Shape ourself and deserve….
Dont make option/choice… Be a Right option/choice.
