Engineering education is losing its sheen because of un employability of the technical graduates. There is a huge gap between learning through education system and the employer’s expectations of employees. Though the curriculum has been updated and designed to match the corporate needs, students are failing flat on their face when it comes to short listing methods like Group Discussions and in Interviews in campus placements. by focusing on different approaches, facilitators can train the students and pull the students  out of their apprehensions about GD and the use of English language.  Instead of using the same traditional methods again and again, different techniques that suit the needs of the students can be used for effective outcome. This paper attempts to suggest few techniques that suit the individual needs of the participants.

Key Words: Employability, Techniques, Group Discussion communication skills and soft skills
