Career Opportunities

For the working executive "The ability to communicate has been ranked No. 1 in a study on what helps promotability." (Harvard Business Review)

In numerous surveys, business executives rank the ability to communicate first among the personal factors necessary for promotion. Many people rate communication as one of the most important aspects of business leadership. Thus, the prime requisite of a promotable executive is "ability to communicate".

Communication is crucial for any kind of success in business - not just in getting promoted, but accomplishing corporate objectives and/or managing competition. In fact, communication may be a business executive's most important skill.

The higher you move in your organization, the more communicating you are likely to do.

One study concludes that first-level supervisors spend 74% of their time communicating, second- level managers 81% and third- level managers 87%. Another study shows that CEOs spend 78% of their time in oral communication alone.

For graduate students Out of 120 job descriptions appearing in one issue of the National Business Employment Weekly (published by the Wall Street Journal), almost every listing included this requirement: "The persons we seek must have strong written and oral communication skills."

In the course of formal education, most of us have increasingly spent more time in mastering our technical/functional subjects. The educational system did not give us enough exposure or opportunity to develop our communication skills. The fact remains, however that mere command over vocational subjects is not enough to give us an edge over other similarly qualified competitors in the job market.

Sound technical or subject knowledge is only one of the requirements to get selected for the right job and perform well in it. Regardless of the field you're in or the career you choose, your chances of being hired by an organization are better if you possess strong communication skills.
