    3. Read books regularly to get good fuency of english communication

    4. Stand before mirror and take a topic to talk about

    5. Talk before the mirror for 5-10 min about the topic everyday

    6. You can find your mistakes through this and correct it as you go ahead

    7. Don't get stuck , practice for flawless speaking

    8. Communicate in english everthings you can get the fluency as soon as possible


    Note : Practice the above said points regularly to get good communication skills


    All the best :-)

    Re: Not getting job anywhere due to lack of communication skills

    Hey Nagaraju

    This is a common problem with most of the students. And from your writing its clear that your grammar is clear and you can form meaningful sentences. That's the basic part really. So now comes the speaking part, for that i would ask you to do somethings-->

    First if you have institutions like confidence factory where they teach you how to overcome the thing called "STAGE FEAR" they please do join.
    These institutions make sure your speaking skills increases by speaking more and more in english.

    If you want to improve on your own then start watching english movies or english seasons or watch english news channel but turn off the video and just hear what they are saying. By watching you will be able to know what they are saying but by listening if you know what they are speaking exactly it will not only improve your word skills but also help you in speaking good english.

    make a group of 5 to 6 people and select a general topic and start a group discussion. Here all of them will be your friends and you wont have that awakard feeling of speaking in front of a stranger and before you know it your fear will come down.

    Take a english newspaper and start reading in front of a mirror for 5 mins loudly.

    Follow these steps and you will get better in spoken english.

    Please dont take this lightly coz its your future that you will be risking so do follow and i guarantee you that you will improve.

    Thanks

    Re: Not getting job anywhere due to lack of communication skills

    Hello,
    You have 64% aggregate that will be raised if you perform well in the final year so give more focus to your final year so as to increase your aggregate. Secondly getting in campus placement is easy compared to of campus so prepare well to get in campus placement. Coming to your problem that you are facing during interview is rectified by the following:
    1)As you struggling with communication skill start with today talk with your friends in English not in other language or mother language.
    2)If you get struck anywhere your friend will also help you to get it rectified.
    3)Study daily magazine or newspaper try to learn new words and try to implement in your sentence so that you never forget the word.
    4)Talk in a group of friends so that you get confidence that you lack in group discussion.
    5)Prepared it well you get placed in good company.
    Thank u...

    Re: Not getting job anywhere due to lack of communication skills

    HEY NAGARAJU,

    DO NOT WORRY THAT YOU ARE WEAK AT COMMUNICATION SKILLS. MOST OF THE STUDENTS LACK THE COMMUNICATIONS SKILLS AS THEY COME FROM DIFFERENT BACKGROUND.

    THAT IS NOT A BIG PROBLEM IF YOU ARE STRONG ENOUGH FROM INSIDE AND GET YOURSELF DESTINED THAT YOU ARE GOING TO GET PLACED IN THE NEXT CAMPUS PLACEMENT.

    I WOULD SUGGEST YOU SOME OF THE STEPS THAT YOU SHOULD GO THROUGH SO THAT YOU CAN IMPROVE YOUR COMMUNICATION SKILLS WITH IN A SHORT TIME.

    "THE SECRET TO LEARN THE COMMUNICATION SKILLS IS THAT DONT BE HESITATED TO TALK TO OTHERS OR ANYONE".

    STEPS TO IMPROVE COMMUNICATION SKILLS:-

    1.Choose someone you think has good communication skills and imitate them.

    2.Hang out with people who have good communication skills.

    3.Practice Oratory. Everyday.

    4.Read any book.

    5.When you are at public places, increase your sensory acuity by noticing peoples body language, lip-reading, and observing they behavior ie the way they interact with other people.

    6.Set the objective to be nice to every person you meet, no matter what their attitude towards you is. Attitude is contagious.

    7.Set the objective of every meeting.

    8.When communicating with a single person or a group, let the other person talk (and you listen) most of the time.

    9.Good Communication Skills begin at home
    . Therefore, the previous 3 steps must first be applied while communicating with family members.

    10.Before going to bed, take a minute and review the day.

    HOPE YOU WILL DEFINITELY BE PLACED IN ANY ONE OF THE COMPANY.

    THANKING YOU, ALL THE BEST.

    Re: Not getting job anywhere due to lack of communication skills

    hi,it's a common problem that every one faces.but don't worry i'll give you some suggestions
    1)If you are in hostel then make your roommates as friends and your first step is to make a rule among yourself that 'we should speak in english only'.you wont feel fear infront of your friends.because friends will always be there to rectify your mistakes while communicating and you wont feel guilty.dont bother about the mistakes.
    2)if you are at home then make the above rule with your siblings,if you have.or even you can play a game like JAM with your siblings and defenately you wont get bored and at the same time you will have a fun and knowledge too.
    3)there is one more tip.i think it works,stand infront of mirror and practice what you want to say.before facing strangers you have to face yourself.this also increases your confidence and make feel that you are the only person who can communicate better.you will have a chance to rectify your mistakes while communicating.
    just keep practicing, PRACTICE MAKES MAN PERFECT
    i hope this will help you
    ALL THE BEST

    Re: Not getting job anywhere due to lack of communication skills

    Dear Nagararu,

    I thinks you spend most of the time alone or you do not to talk with your frinds and teachers.

    Nothing to worry.Try to improve your % of marks in the last semester.

    start speaking with your friends and teachers in english.Go through "Rapid speaking english book" and apply in your daily life for interaction.

    Avoid hesitation and don't be affraid.

    Also go through english news paper daily and make a notes of the words and phrases not known to you,be aware the meaning of these words.

    Also practice few minutes before mirror.

    Think your self as a teacher and student both and make question and answer yourself for some times.

    You will have many scopes even if you don't get in campus selection.

    Thanks and best of luck.

    Re: Not getting job anywhere due to lack of communication skills

    Hi i can surely understand your problem and will surely try to help you. Developing effective communication skills is very important for getting through the interviews.

    First of all you should try to be calm and composed in front of the interviewer and not be nervous. Nervousness can really mar your interview.

    You should try to speak in english as much as possible with your relatives and friends as well as family. This will increase your confidence.

    Watch good english movies and read good novels.

    Also you can try to communicate with yourself in the mirror in English. This will surely give you more confidence.

    Have confidence. You will surely succeed. Best of luck. Thanks

    Re: Not getting job anywhere due to lack of communication skills

    Hello,

    If you think you lack a good communication skill then its not too late to improve it.

    You have to work on it to get an edge over it.

    If you have a stage fear then make a small group of friends and pick any topic and have a group discussion on it and ask your friends to give feedback so that you can know your flaws and can rectify it.

    practice speaking in english with your friends and family.

    speak to yourself even in your thinking process.

    Join a good institution where they will sharpen your communication skills and personality.

    Thank you

    Re: Not getting job anywhere due to lack of communication skills

    Hi! Nagaraju!

    Don't worry it happens with most of the peolple after graduation in the specific field. You need to build some confidence first and do well academically as well. 64% is average marks which you have obtained there and your communication skill is also not perfect. I would recommend you to go for personal development programmes first, read more and more english books, read daily english news papers and articles and you can also watch english motivational movies or documentaries. M.Tech in the similar field is an added advantage there.


    Thanks.

    Re: Not getting job anywhere due to lack of communication skills

    This is a typical downside with most of the scholars. And from your writing its clear that your descriptive linguistics is obvious and you'll be able to kind significant sentences. That is the basic half very. therefore currently comes the speaking half, for that i'd raise you to try to to somethings.

    1st if you've got establishments like confidence works wherever they teach you the way to beat the issue referred to as Stage Fear they please do be a part of.
    These establishments make certain your speaking skills will increase by speaking a lot of and a lot of in english.

    If you would like to enhance on your own then begin look english movies or english seasons or watch english news channel however put off the video and simply hear what they're oral communication. By look you may be ready to apprehend what they're oral communication however by listening if you recognize what they're speaking specifically it'll not solely improve your word skills however conjointly assist you in speaking sensible english.

    build a bunch of five to six folks and choose a general topic and begin a bunch discussion. Here all of them are your friends and you wont have that awkward feeling of speaking before of a unknown and before you recognize it your worry can come back down.
    Take a English newspaper and begin reading before of a mirror for five minutes loudly.
    Follow these steps and you may recuperate in spoken English.
    Please do not take this gently coz its your future that you simply are risking therefore do follow and that i guarantee you that you simply can improve.
    The company resources square measure alleged to be used for any work that ends up in some profit to the corporate.

    So, clearly you're not alleged to use the corporate automobile for your personal profit.

    albeit you'll be able to pay some quantity of cash on the fuel, still what concerning the conventional wear and tear that takes place.
    conjointly there's a further downside of theft/accident wherever you will got to answer queries on why was the automobile getting used outside the town etc.
    Same is that the case with house moreover. The house has clearly been given for private use, then again you cannot rent that house and begin earning cash from that.
    Its invariably safer to require written permission from your seniors whereas victimisation any of those resources for private use.

    Communication skills are very much required for any candidate to get a good job.

    Without having communication skills, it is difficult to get the job especially in the present scenario.

    try to improve fluency in the language first.

    Then present it in a better manner to be communicated easily to the receiver,

    Try to give seminars and lectures and test your communication.

    Participate in the events like Group Discussion as many as you can.

    Re: Not getting job anywhere due to lack of communication skills

    Dear,
    Firstly , forget that you can't speak in front of others...........
    I am sure you are confident when you are alone and speaking in front of other.........this shows that you have enough skill that requires for communication..............
    So problem is their in your mind that think "WHAT OTHER WILL THINK ABOUT ME and WHAT HAPPEN IF I HAVE DONE SOMETHING "?.....
    You need to be more focus on yourself rather what other are thinking for you............ and when you work according to your thinking not by others definitely you will be a good competitor in group discussion for other............
    some other activity that also helps you are:
    ....Read Newspaper
    .....talk to your colleague with confidence
    ....Participate in extra-curricular activties
    I hope this will help you.........

    Re: Not getting job anywhere due to lack of communication skills

    Yes at present time for snatching a job good communication skills is necessary.
    For that do the following things....
    Start speaking in english with your friends don't bother for wright or wrong once you get the confidence of speaking in front of others then slowly slowly you can correct
    your mistakes too...
    When you are alone then also select a topic and start speaking over that in front of the mirror, it will give you confidence...
    In GD don't hesitate to put your points because in GD they watch how confidently you are putting your points not how accurately you are speaking....
    Keep these things in your mind give your self a positive start.......
