Below are the important skills that you need to have in order to become a professor:


1. You need to have the expertise in your area. Without that you cannot survive in this profession. Every single day your knowledge will be tested by your own students. You need to understand every concept carefully and should be able to explain it in the simplest possible way.

2. You need to have extremely good communication skills. They are very important as all your knowledge has to be shared with others. you cannot afford to make mistakes in your language otherwise that will cause problem in communicating the idea.

3. You need to have patience to listen. At times you will get frustrated as your students would ask very stupid questions too. But you need to stay there, listen to them and help them understand the facts. You cannot avoid any question, else that will mark a bad impression on the student's mind.

4. You should be able to cope with a number of activities every day. Multi tasking is an important part of professor's work. They cannot only stick to academics but have to do a wide range of activities. Therefore this job requires the multi tasking skill.

5. As a professor, one has to be extremely careful about maintaining their public image and build nice professional relationships all around. This is important part of their work as the students consider them as role models and derive inspiration from them. They need to set themselves as role models.

6. You are supposed to do your research and write a definite number of research papers every year. That will determine your real contribution in that field and will help you to be acknowledged as a value provider in your area of expertise. You have to conduct the research regularly and publish your findings from time to time.

7. You need to mentor, guide, assist and help anyone who is working under you and help them build the confidence to become a value provider in the field of education.

Dear Friend
Thank you very much for your interest in CareerGuide.com as your query is about eligibility cretieria of being a lecturer. Though you have not mentioned the stream where you are interested. Try to specify the stream and then join the preperatory phage at tintial level. Let me discuss the milestones in structural mode so that you can follow the path and achieve your dream job:
1. First of all your academic record right from school (10th) to higher degree (Ph.D) level must be upright otherwise chances are remote to be university teacher which is the most prestigious job in the world where you will educate the young generetion at top level. So be assure about your confidence, overall conduct, and responsiveness to the society only then think about such job this is the primfacy of this teaching profession.
2. Screeing of subject: At initial level when you are in school never think about any specfic subject irrespective of your interest justify all the subjects and score brilliently which will give you the natural selection of any subject by default where you will see the highest marks in any subject combination which will indicate you that I am comfortable and my mindset is very pro to this subject combination, although you have tried your level best for all the subjects. See this is one of the perceptions in screeing a subject if your evaluation system is genuine otherwise never do missfiring.

Professors
3. Once you will come out with your subject type start to pursue it at 12th level where a subject combination is required for example in sciences-math physics, and chemistry & biology, physics and chemistry, in humanity-also likewise but make sure your transcript is the master of your decision.

4. Continue till masters then your interest will be narrowed down now prepare for UGC-NET/GATE/CSIR-JRF/SRF/DBT -JRF etc these arel all the fellowship driven qualification and minimum qualifiaction for admission in Ph.D in any subject Crack it ant any cost and then show your academic credential before joing the highest degree in world. After doctorate degree you are hundred percent eligible for lecturership either in collge or university.
Hope this input will help you to motivate further.
Good luck
