Why is professional communication important to me?
Have you had any experience of going to a social party but staying alone and not actually knowing what to do? Have you ever wanted to get some information about the job position in the company that you are interested but never really know whom to look for? And have you ever struggled with your research proposal to be submitted to graduate school? Whether these things have happened to you or not, we should not neglect the importance of these issues here: being able to communicate with strangers in a party could gain you new knowledge or experience that yourself never had; being able to find out more about job position would let you know what things to expect and how to prepare the resume; the ability of good academic writing skills would get you the opportunity to pursue your academic goal.
The questions addressed above are crucial to me because these are the things that tight up my mind. Firstly, I have decided to enter into finance industry in the rest of my life. In business world, good social networking is one key to success. Building good relationship with capable people will contribute to successes of your own. Hence, in order to connect well with people, developing strong professional communication skills is a must. Secondly, since all of us are surrounded by tons of information, knowing where to find the most useful and relevant information is a key. So, it is imperative that I would need to know to whom and in which channel would my inquiries be best addressed. Thus, professional communication comes into play again. Finally, before my real job search, I may plan to go on to pursue my graduate studies in finance, and one determinant of obtaining the graduate scholarship is the proposal. Knowing how to write effectively is a critical factor. Building up strong communication skills would improve my presentation of thoughts and better interact literally with the professors.
In conclusion, developing professional communication helps me in three aspects: social networking, job search and application to graduate studies. It is a skill that is never out-dated and will help us achieve our goals in life.
