Communication skills, especially, verbal communication is extremely crucial in deciding your employability. Sharpen your verbal communication skills to the best of your ability. Practice makes one perfect. So, start by talking to your colleagues, friends, family etc in the relevant language. You can even read books, watch news and shows, and even listen to sports commentary to polish your language skills. Then there are seminars or conferences to especially train you for verbal communication skills. The point is to not let your skills get rusted and in fact keep updating them with time.

The Creative Knack
