The role of English language in career advancement is undeniable in this era of globalization.

Though English language proficiency is not the only criterion for career development, its

importance in the corporate world is widely recognized. It is so obvious in countries like India

how lack of English language skills affects the career prospects of many young graduates.

Though low-paying jobs may not require advanced level of English proficiency, many

organizations expect the graduates to possess intermediate level of language proficiency to carry

out their responsibilities. Today many research reports emphasize the relationship between

English and employability all over the world. Due to the globalized market, employees need to

have day-to-day business dealings and communication with executives from different parts of the

world. Activities like emails, online chat, business presentations require ‘above average’

language skills in order to have unambiguous and clear-cut transfer of information to all

participants. Many research studies conducted in various Asian countries have identified that English

helps improve job performance and boosts the prospects of promotion.

Knowing English in a workspace has a lot of benefits. It showcases your interest to perform beyond

basic business standards. It will allow you to communicate effectively with your colleagues and

superiors. It will enable you to adequately express and represent yourself in front of an audience.

You will start developing high-end interpersonal and networking skills. It will provide you with

confidence while delivering presentations and speeches. Good communication will help you make a

good first impression, be it at a job interview or a business event. It will be of great assistance when

you travel to a different country or working at an international company. It gives you an edge over

other candidates while applying for a particular position. English language places you in a position

where you can express yourself to everyone in a common language.

How to groom yourself before an interview?

 Interviewing can be challenging even for the best communicator. Responding effectively means

achieving a balance between listening to what the interviewer is asking, and providing a well-

thought-out response to questions. If you need to brush up on your interviewing skills, take the time

to practice. The more comfortable you are in the role of an interviewee, the easier it will be to

showcase how well you can communicate. Practice interviewing with a friend or family member, or

even by yourself in front of a mirror. Even though it’s not a “real” interview, you’ll be able to

consider, in advance, how you will respond and how you will connect with your interviewer.
