Communication Strategies: Professionalism from College to Career

Sometimes students find themselves in unfamiliar or challenging social situations, juggling demands of making conversation, facilitating introductions, or managing a buffet line with unfamiliar foods. In this seminar, the Shelton Leadership Center will provide resources and sample scenarios to help participants develop confidence and poise in navigating professional and social environments, including meals and receptions. This experiential seminar focuses on preparing for professional events, communication strategies from texting to interviewing, and situational awareness guidelines. At the end of the seminar, a lunch with local professionals provides students an opportunity to practice the skills they have learned.

This year’s seminar will be January 25, 2020, in Talley Student Union from 10am-1pm, and will be available to 100 undergraduates at NC State. If you wish to attend, please contact Andrea Ramos-Lewis at Registration is required.
