Job Requirement : "Good communication skills"

Ever since college exams got over I've been looking for jobs. Some companies contact you directly via e-mail, some have consultants who call you/e-mail you and then there is the biggest bunch where the jobs are left for the interested job hunters to look over on job portals.

They have pretty much the same requirement in a candidate with the usual ones being :
2.Able to work in a team
3.Excellent communication skills.

The first two aspects are well and good and very much necessary but the third aspect is quite missing in the candidates and the companies alike. Any sense of sentence formation, spelling and grammar is totally invisible. I captured screenshots of three such instances (I got lazy to look for more).

(Hover over the image to zoom in and zoom out)

Urgent requirement for "Mechnical,Diploma,Sales"? "..will be knowledge of welding machines"? WTF! Also you can't suddenly start off another word with a capital letter! 31TH July and 1TH August? Bah am tired of finding flaws in these.

So if you want this job you must be "responsible, commitment, understandable and (last but not the least) good communication in English". So it doesn't matter if you have no sense of grammar or that your sentences make ZERO sense, as long as you can combine many words in English you're good! Oh by the way, its "totally a FEILD job".

There are way too many in this so I would let you all read and find out the "little" mistakes they made.

So much for our accolade of most number of English speakers than anywhere else in the world!

P.S. There are like 200 million jobs in the Insurance and BPO sector, so if you're unemployed or looking for a change and these are your area of preference then hop on to the job hunting bandwagon!
