Today’s one-hour presentation at Dominican University, “How Can Studying a Language Help You Get the Job You Want When You Graduate?” will set the stage for the student workshop I’ll conduct there in the fall.
Topics in today’s handout:
Why study a language if I already have a pre-professional major?
Fundamentals of packaging language skills for the job market.
How can you connect your language studies to your career aspirations?
You can master networking on campus–especially in your language courses.
Make every presentation you do in college practice for a job interview.
Managing your digital identity for the 21st century workplace.
The presentation mode I’ll be using today works well in a virtual environment–as a webcast or Skype guest speaking event–and can be deployed in anticipation of a campus visit.
