Our head office which is in India is 2 hours away from the project site, so, it would be great if I could stay there for around 6 months. Also, I can finish all my work online by staying there.

Hiring new employees in a company is quite a difficult procedure for the hr departments as the businesses have discovered it to be hard to choose from the young and old employees. However, Some businesses find that their new workers lack basic interpersonal skills such as cooperative skills. There are different reasons for it and the solution can be restructuring the education system. I am going to have a brief discussion on the above statement in the upcoming paragraphs.
To begin with, students are not taught about the languages as the professionals believe it has no role to play in the fields of engineers, chemists, doctors, etc. Therefore, the young ones have a lack of communication skills. Also, in-class discussions where both teachers and learners can interact is being ignored and the focus of schools is to tend academic progress of the juveniles. Moreover, students do not involve in teamwork projects and they believe everything can be achieved by cramping. Because of the absence of teamwork activities, they lack cooperative skills, and thus, while their jobs they expect everything to flow by them.
This can be changed by reframing our education system. Language courses should be made compulsory and the teaching methods should also be changed. For example, the addition of tutorials, videos should be added to the syllabus to learn. Moreover, speaking sessions should also be a part of the classrooms. Young learners should be given teamwork tasks to make them ready for the workplace.
To conclude, learning should be made simple with the full interaction of teachers and students.
