@rahul2 You rightly mentioned communication and interpersonal skills are actually very crucial skills for a computer engineer. And in fact most of the student don't pay much attention to it, they only focus on their academics or domain knowledge and because of that it really become tough for a fresher to find a job

@2pushme you should watch this video clip by Khurshed Batiwala, he talked about a study done in Stanford where they asked extremely successful Stanford graduates - "How much percentage do you attribute the success of your life to domain expertise and how much to soft skills"
