Students Can Improve Their Communication Skills for Business

Campus recruiters joined together this morning for a discussion forum focused on “the ultimate candidate”.  One section of this conversation centered on the need for students to improve their communication skills which will then boost their success during the hiring process and in their careers. Employers cited the following areas of opportunities for students:

  • Honing professional phone conversation skills
  • Learning presentation skills and the optimal use of PowerPoint
  • The ability to easily transition between different types of interview questions (i.e. some questions only require a simple answer where other questions deserve a more detailed explanation with examples)
  • Improved business writing skills
