In facing the challenges of era 4.0, graduates are undoubtedly faced with language and communicative competency struggle to ensure that there is ease of transition from that of the academia to the workplace. This transition would entail innovative insight in language learning to equip graduates with apt technical and non-technical competencies for purposes of employability and work readiness. Graduates will need to familiarize themselves with the professional environment and be familiar with the language of the community of practice. To be considered a legitimate member of a community, the situated learning theory postulates that continued participation and engagement over a period of time with a community, provides one the ability to be considered as member of a community. For this purpose, a mixed method research was conducted in a private university to obtain the views of graduates and employers involved in student internship programs at an Information Technology (IT) company. Respondents were required to provide their feedback on communicative competence expected of interns for employability and work readiness. The study aims to share the communicative competencies and struggles as well as pedagogical implications expected of IT graduates in Industry 4.0. to be deemed employable and work ready.
