Speaking Opportunities

Have you achieved career success? Do you work in a "hot" field? Do you have experiences to share that may benefit current Wofford students in their search for a career path? Do you enjoy speaking before large groups? If so, we invite you to be a presenter at one of several student-oriented Career Services or The Space events.

Speaking time ranges from 15-20 minutes to an hour, depending on the event. Audience will vary from students only to a mix of students and Wofford employees.

Speakers are needed for the following events:

(spring and fall semesters): 
  Several alumni are needed for each event. You should be willing to discuss your work in a particular field (business, economics, accounting, finance, English, law, etc.) and answer questions from students about your career path and the outlook for your profession.  
     
/uploadedImages/theSpace/Events/icon-prepareCS.gif  Executive Speaker Series
 (throughout the year): 
  One speaker per event. We're looking for speakers who are recognized and accomplished leaders in their fields, with extensive public speaking experience. Discussion topics are your choice but should address professional development and leadership issues. A Q&A session will follow.
