In this post, I will talk about public speaking and how it can help you in your future career.
During your educational journey, you will be asked to speak in front of a crowd at least once. This must be something that you find yourself comfortable doing because you may need to hone in on these skills in the future.
In your future job, you may need to present an idea to your co-workers so being comfortable in an environment where everyone is looking at you is a really valuable skill to have. In certain industries, employers look for this trait when recruiting. This is why, in assessment centres, you may have an aspect which requires you to speak publicly.
Generally, public speaking is a really good skill to have because with public speaking comes confidence and if you can portray yourself to be confident, this will work to your benefit. Another good skill which can come out of speaking to the public is communication skills. I have hinted in previous posts that communication skills is essential in being successful so whenever you have the opportunity to do public speaking, take advantage of it!
