However, if you really want to stand out, you'll also have good communication skills.Where I used to work, several departments would interview each candidate that got through the HR bottleneck. We got this one candidate who had a Ph.D. in computer science, his transcript was fantistic, etc. In those days we were not allowed to give tests or anything to determine ability. I got to interview him and suggested we not bid on him. Another interviewer gave the most concise evaluation: he cannot make English sentences in real time. And American English was the only language he knew.Our view was that we did a lot of research, and that the research area did not make "things" except to demonstrate proof of concept (usually). Our main product in those days was publication in refereed professional journals. So if you cannot communicate, you were of no use to us.
