Often candidates appearing in interviews get asked: “Why should we hire you?” Mihir, a fresh civil engineering graduate was asked this question during a job interview. Many fresh Indian graduate students might fumble in answering this question even if they know the answer. The reason is that they may not have the vocabulary or ability to articulate well enough to impress an employer.
This is how it works
A research conducted by Oxford University and Lok Foundation found that corporate India rewards English fluency with over 20-50% increased incomes. Yet, while over 5000 hours are spent learning skills and earning degrees, not even 50 hours are invested in articulating and expressing those skills to employers.
