English is the primary spoken language all around the world, thus we know that every major cooperation in any country has to have business trade dealing in US dollar currency. The interviewer of these major cooperation will want to hire qualified candidate with specific criteria. When an interviewer interview a students seeking for an opportunity in the workforce, most likely the interviewer will interview in English. The interviewer not only will he look for their degree major; skill set specific to the job he or she applies for, the interviewer will look for accuracy; fluency; pronunciation; understanding and being able to speak and listen well aside from their work experience. Therefore, if students lack the ability to speak English one on one fluently especially during an interview before they even get the job, the student’s chance of getting a suitable job is slim to none. Thus, students need to be prepared in advance. If the students are poorly prepared for the real world; lacking basic understanding of time management; study skills; seeking counseling; how to go about in getting help in speaking better English one on one to prepare for the interview process; writing professional resume; attending interview workshop, the consequence will lead to modest academic performance which in turn will lead to poor job preparation, which then will lead to loss opportunities and anguishing frustration.
