Why will any organization employ anyone who’s shot of any of these skills in the first place. Apart frm Man Management which I feel that you can learn on the job, I expect anyone who’s looking for job or placement to have these set of skills.


I remember when I first thought that I was good in excel, Chai until I saw a senior colleague use excel to manage billions of financial estimates where every figure was linked to a formula. Still wish I was that good.
