    I'm a very determined person when i want to be and i really wanna do well in life

    a major thing that is holding me back is my confidence and how i am socially and very low self esteem.

    i think from how things where when i was younger i'm unable to socialise like most people do or converse much. ( how sad i know)

    bascially will this effect me when looking for a job when i graduate. I scared of not being able to do the work and conversing with the people i work with.

    (do engineering degree btw)

    What will affect you is your inability to use the English language.

    Depends what area you go into i suppose. Some areas it really helps to know people, to get to know fellow employees, bosses etc etc and doing this will result in making it much easier to get ahead. However i imagine there are other job areas to which this doesn't matter nearly as much.

    I know hw you feel and yes, it might affect your ability to get a job as companies want someone who sounds confident in themselves as they are more likely to do a good job. It depends what sort of jb are you looking for?

    It could affect you getting a job but only you can change this. You need to try and do things that help improve your confidence and self esteem - even though it may be hard at first, keep trying and you will get there.
