Other benefits of IELTS in India

Many people believe that getting the right IELTS score is one way of proving that you have the English language proficiency to study abroad. Definitely, we cannot deny the role that IELTS plays in studying and working abroad. But getting the right IELTS score is important for various other reasons as well. 

Prospects in the corporate zone

There are plenty of situations where their staff has to interact with a foreign client. It may be during a client visit to India or being on a daily status call with a client overseas. IELTS plays a vital role in demonstrating English language abilities and there are high chances that the test taker gets an edge over other employees. The test taker may be given the first preference to interact with the client. Also, there are a number of situations where their staff has to travel onsite and work at the client’s place which is usually a foreign country. IELTS plays a strong role when it comes to the selection of candidates for onsite travel. IELTS actually eases the process of getting a visa to foreign countries. 

When it comes to progression in career, it plays a vital role. There may be situations where the company sponsors for IELTS. Be it handling international clients or a day-to-day conversation with the boss and colleagues, IELTS definitely helps in proving that the test taker is capable.

Job prospects in non-IT corridor

IELTS definitely helps in the non-IT field as well. Teaching profession may be an example. Though there are a number of exams to judge the competency of a person in his/her abilities to teach, IELTS is proof that the person has exceptional English language skills. 

There are also options to become an IELTS examiner. Those who fulfil the requirements listed by the British Council can attend the interview and undergo the necessary training to become an examiner. Examiners are monitored by examiner trainers up to four times a year and at least once every two years. New examiners (and those who have not recently worked as IELTS examiners) are monitored at least three times in their first year.
