Interesting read, thanks for posting. I do agree, the soft skills that aid in the business side of tech are sometimes overlooked in college. I found it very helpful to take up public speaking and join Toastmasters when I was still in college to get feedback on how to communicate different types of information effectively.

I have not thought about joining Toastmasters for that reason, but I will look into it! Thank you for reading my post and giving me feedback! :)

Toastmasters is was great when I was working to get better at communicating technical work to a majority non-technical crowd. I had a few engineers in my local group, but most were not. They gave great feedback into what was hard to understand vs. what was explained very well.
