1.  Why should you, as a business student and communicator,  strive to improve your communication skills; and why may it be  difficult to do so on your own? As communication skills are critical to effective job placement performance, career advancement, and organizational success. In making hiring decisions employers often rank communication skills among the most requested items. Many job’s advertisement specifically ask for excellent oral and written communication skills. No one born with the abilities to read, listen, speak, and write effectively so that these skills must be learned. Thriving in demanding work world depends on many factors, some of which you cannot control. 2.  Recall a time when you experienced a problem as a result of  poor communication, what were the causes of and possible  solutions for the problem? Communication is key in every aspect of our lives. Without proper and effective  communication, we would not be able to accomplish much in today's society. Some causes of poor communication can be attributed to breakdowns in the mechanics of  communication itself, which include the transmission of the message, the receipt of the  message, and the interpretation of the message. To some degree, the feedback during and  after these stages can also affect the act of communication.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
