Gamecock Toastmasters Club

Communication skills can distinguish you in the workplace.  Employers know that you can do research; they want employees that can communicate. 

Everyone can work to become a better speaker. The Gamecock Toastmasters club can help.

Members meet over lunch on Tuesdays, 11:30-12:30. Some members will prepare short talks, and some time is dedicated to allowing any present to voluntarily stand and talk for 1-2 minutes on various topics (like typical interview questions).

If you complete the first ten 5-7 minute projects you receive the "Competent Communicator" award. Many employers will recognize this certification on your resume.

Advisors have noticed improvements in graduate students participating in Toastmasters.

Our next meeting is Tuesday at 11:30 in the Swearingen Faculty Lounge, 1A03.  Sometimes we meet in 3C02 if the lounge is booked.
