It goes beyond the roll of communicating with fellow peers in a social aspect, but also communicating to those who look up to the RA for guidance. It taps into all different aspects of communication because with in the job there are different levels of communication. There are both formal and informal ways of communication that goes on. With formal communication, it can be handled in times of dealing with certain incidences,speaking with a boss, and speaking with the knowledge of differnt backgrounds.
