A TO Z OF RESOURCE MANAGEMENT
A lot of my coworkers would work in second shift because they were going to college. While most of them were young and studying towards getting a degree some of them were going to the community college to learn English. Away from their homeland and working hard and studying hard at the same time made them extra tired. Needless to ask, they were learning English because it is the language of America and they knew very well that it will help them in getting better jobs if they knew how to speak English fluently. Looking at those coworkers of mine made me grateful to my parents who made sure that the school we went to had English for medium of instruction. A lot of us went about doing our jobs and as complacency is the enemy of progress we ended up staying where we were. We forgot the fact that some places in the USA more people are speaking languages other than English. When our company gave pink slips to a lot of us, and we started looking for jobs, the hardest hurdle that came in our way was the fact that we were not bi- lingual. Then I realized some thing that was very important. Every language is important whether or not we speak it, because times change and with time jobs requirements change.
There is one language I like in particular and I wish that I could learn it. It is non other than "Sign Language".
