thank you Ernest, for replying.
I do agree with the importance of communication skills. But isnt just the ability to communicate is quite enough??. To them, it seems is quite not enough, it seems they have a tendancy towards guys who talk pleasingly and are spontanious, just as I said before.
most of the times people come across situations like these -
two guys crack the first round - written test on aptitude(sometimes verbal and technical too).
the first guy excels at it and the second guy just crossed the line.
then comes the technical round which tests their programming or technical skills. Still its often that the programming/technical skills are not quite well(they are cared more about 'what is this and what is that' rather than 'how is that and why is that')
there is this one instance when the interviewer asked a question, that kind of made sense, to a mate of mine who is relatively technically poor(no offence meant), the question was - why should one go for OOP?why java and all these oop languages?
and my mate replied - for a better performance(implying that OOP programs run faster)
to my surprise the interviewer made him through, the reason he gave was - he was confident and he liked his attitude.
No wonder why people keep saying - 'even if you dont know the answer , answer the question confindently and promptly'!!!.
(There are several instances like these, and im not making them up).
and the first guy as usual, being a skilled guy excels at this too
then comes the personal interview that tests for cummunication and attitude
THIS IS THE IMPORTANT PART - here the first guy was quite enough for communication(the guy can communicate), but he wasnt spontaneous and didnt make much of impression
but the second guy, being extremely social, with his infinite spontanity and pleasing sweet talk makes a very good impression.
The HR guy, who only has a requirement of few, selects the second guy, ditching the first guy, ignoring his skills and normal ability to just communicate(althogh not spontaneous).Its because, to him all the previous rounds mean nothing, if the interviewee makes a good impression, then consider he's done.If not, well, he's goes down.

I've been through a lot, I went for 12 or 13 selection procedures, and I never saw anyone caring about the interviewee's programming & technical skills.
Its like the person - who talks pleasingly and who is spontaneous in giving responses is the right guy for them, as though they are selecting for some kind of call center.
You won't believe that sometimes guys who cant even program(or write sudo-code) for simple fist year C assignments get selected for well renowned companies.
I worked a bit hard since my third year of graduation, good in java, learned vb.net sitting home, made even two tiny .net projects, meanwhile. I might not be the perfect guy(im trying to..) but im worth something.
But right now, I'm kind of losing it.
