Is having good communication skills important for a Software Engineer?

Among a number of equally qualified and sound candidates, do engineers with good communication skills get preference for a job?

Yes it is important.Technology is all about changes and communication is all about flexibility to express in different situations.If one becomes a top tech savvy person- genius but doesnt know to communicate then the commnication gap can do the worse for him.it is a person who can make or break a situation .Every one reacts differently and has various ways so you need to talk in different ways ,mixed with gestures,expressions and thus the spoken part is necessary -the interpersonal and soft skills including communication is important for all engineers ,managers and every team member.
