The writing in the academy or collage does not have the same importance where the academic writing has in life. With the help of academic writing skills, one’s can increase the potential skills and learning in life (Almeida, Robalino, and Behrman, 2012). Academic writing has its own rules to accumulate the quality of the students to face the career in business life. As a student, I felt the need of improving my skills through academic writing and knowledge. To elaborate, how I managed to improve my employability skills through academic writing and some experiences as well.

Every college and universities are set their courses and practices to ensure the increase and improvement of the employability skills through better academic writing and learning skills (Eliot, 2016).
The academic excellence helped me a lot to develop my ways of learning, the preferences of learning and the academic concepts with writing (Sekaran. and Bougie, 2016). With the help of academic skills, I am able can increase the ability to communicate with others through formal and informal communication method, can collaborate with the team and members and can resolve any problems with the help of analytical tools (Eliot, 2016).

I had a very poor time management. My grades were poor and I could not manage my timing with personal interest too (Sekaran. and Bougie, 2016). I began to learn about managing time.

The need of knowledge and they will get form course and training from the industry will help me a lot as well (Eliot, 2016).
I had to face problem in leadership skills. In our course, we had to make group to sort out our presentation and group work (Almeida, Robalino and Behrman, 2012). The problem arises when different people will prefer different communication manner and problem occurred through the differentiation among the group members I had to manage them with my ability and I solved the problems to maintain the group work perfectly (Coldwell and Herbst, 2004).
