I still remember one scientist who came to me about eight years ago. He was reluctant to face interviews since he could not speak English well. He had been with the same company for more than five years. However, the company did not offer him promotion and increment he deserved.
Moreover, he had a vast vocabulary being a scientist and his only challenge was speaking English. I trained him for two months.
He called me after a couple of days and said,"A company in Hyderabad has selected me and offered double salary. I want to thank you for this transformation. You are the first person whom I have informed about this."
