What I learned throughout my continued research was how valuable the set of skills
were to employers in the workforce. Strong communication skills, strong public speaking
skills, and intelligent interpersonal interaction skills are at the top of nearly
every employers list in skills needed at their job. In the field of communication,
we fine tune our ability to understand and analyze rhetoric, and then use our gained
knowledge of intercultural, interpersonal, and advocacy skills to reproduce that rhetoric
in the manner we feel most effective for the situation at hand.
