It is extremely important to be a very nice communicator since that's the way you show all of you i.e.Personality, quality and Attitude. Communication means much more than verbal communication which is hardly 10%, non verbal communication is much more important i.e. tone of voice, body language, expressions and confidence of delivery. Being a very good listener is a great aspect of communication as well.

Dear Avinash,


Thanks for writing your query to careerguide.com!

You have asked specifically about communication skills for Electric Engineers. Well, let me share that communication skills  are basic skill that every one should develop and sharpen.  Communication skills are very important in most of the profession; however, in the engineering field, it depends on your profile.

Communication skills can be useful in following tasks specific to electrical engineers:


  • discuss and convince clients
  • implementing designs (communicate with subordinates and those who are under supervision)
  • write reports and documentation
  • analyze and interpret data
  • meet with client and suppliers


There are few important skills along with communication skills are required for career growth that you may want to enhance.

  • Technical knowledge (subject knowledge, product design, science, maths etc.)
  • Multitasking skill
  • Commercial awareness
  • Team leadership
  • Management skills
  • Computer skills

Hope this is helpful. If you have any query, feel free to revert.
