    Communicative skill is nothing but how we are able to communicate with others. You just think for a new born baby, how much time it takes to communicate with this world. Exactly it is very simple. Even a one year old baby can communicate with its mother tongue. why not us? Whatever may be the language english, hindi, etc. all we need is, a regular go through(such as reading english news paper, watching english movies, watching TV news, and casual conversation with your surroundings). thats all. Communicative skill is a day-by-day gradual development.

    Hello Sureka,
    First of all let me tell you that you are studying in a good educational genre. So you do not need to be afraid from knowledge point of view, in the technical genre.
    From technical point of view, you are already getting what it takes to become a good technical associate in a company. Now when it comes to off campus interview, it is more or less same as an on campus interview. You will give the aptitude test, which will be either written or online. If you score above the cut-off criteria, you will be selected for the interviews. There will be either one or more rounds depending on the company norms for selecting candidates. For this you will have to prepare thoroughly from your subject domain and also few from mathematics and few other from logical reasoning and others.
    Now for the interview, please practice speaking in English Language with your friends and family. DO not hesitate if somebody laughs or jokes. You just practice more to get the right grammar. Also for the time being you can keep an English tutor, who will guide you to speak in correct English. You can buy also, some English communication books
    available in the market. Try it and definitely you will improve.
