The need of IELTS for career building
IELTS (International English Language Testing System) is a globally accepted testing system for accrediting people with second language English, for their proficiency. British Council, IDP (International Development Program) Education Australia, and Cambridge English Language Assessment are the joint owners of this testing system. If you want to pursue a university course in English or you want to gain approval for certain visas, you need to pass the course. People who aim to work abroad or study abroad need to be proficient enough in English, and IELTS is used as proof that they have achieved that level of proficiency.
It has been said – “If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his language, that goes to his heart.”
On 8th July, 2021, IEEE BUBT Student Branch organized a webinar based on "The need of IELTS for career building".
The speaker for the webinar was Afnan Salim, who is an English language trainer at Career.com-Bangladesh, invigilator of British Council Sylhet and Executive member of MUMUNA.
The main purpose of the webinar was to tell people the necessity of proficiency in English. Most people have misconceptions about IELTS and almost half of our students don’t know about the procedure either, so the purpose was to give a vast idea about what are the benefits of knowing good English, what is the procedure of having that skill and the process of IELTS.

Then she told us the common challenges which we face to achieve good skills in English. Moreover, she gives us tips on how we can overcome those challenges and says the benefits of using English in the workplace. IELTS is an examination which prefers how skilled we are in English, not only for speaking but also for writing and reading and it is the first step to going abroad for study. That’s because many students have queries about this examination and the speaker answers all the queries in her brief as the test types, when and who can take part in the examination, what is the educational eligibility to give the IELTS, how to register, how much it costs and what is the marks distribution of I She also said that 3400 institutions around the world have accepted students with a 6+ band in IELTS. So, it was a very informative webinar. The last speaker answers questions of some students with her personal experiences and shares them with us.
