This past Tuesday, PBL had it’s second general meeting of the year, focusing on the anxiety of public speaking and how to overcome it. From executive board testimonials on the pressures of speaking in front of an audience to key advice from the educational book “The Exceptional Presenter,” students were able to learn that public speaking is a common problem and can improve with experience. This, in turn, builds confidence, which is essential for a successful speech. We then formed groups, and had one student per group present on a specific topic in front of the audience. With a turn out of over 50 students, it was a great night to learn about the different ways of overcoming stage fright.

Although everyone loves to use social networking sites like Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, it is important to be careful about the information we share. Your online pages are available to employers and have a great impact on their hiring decisions. Above all, monitor your activity and make your LinkedIn profiles as professional as possible – professional photos really make the difference!
