Four Career Advice Secrets to Creating Successful Job Opportunities
By Ed Sykes

 

Soon after I graduated from college, I moved to New York City to find fame and fortune.  I was in a great relationship, found a great job working in Manhattan and I was feeling on top of the world.  I was going places!
But then it happened.  My girlfriend broke up with me and the company let me go due to reorganization.  In only a few days, my world was shaken.
I applied for job after job with no results.  My money was running low and my rent was due. I didn’t know what to do.
Down to my last bit of cash, I had to go to the bank to get money to eat that night.  I put on my winter coat, gloves, and boots and walked three miles in the cold to my local bank.  At that time in the early 1980s, most banks didn’t have ATMs so I had to go inside to a teller.
As my hands began to thaw, I went to the table to write a check for fifty cents.  I dreaded waiting on line for the teller to serve me.  As I inched forward in the line, I broke into a cold sweat in anticipation of interacting with the teller over a measly sum.

Vocal Variety Is the Spice of Outstanding Presentations: Seven Secrets to Creating an Engaging, Entertaining, and Persuasive Speech

I was recently coaching one of my presentation skills students, and he shared that during a business meeting he was following another speaker.  Just before he was to speak, one of his colleagues asked him the following question:

 

“You are not going to be boring, are you?

 

Knowing and seeing my student in action, I knew he was not boring.  I suggested to my student that what the questioner was really asking was, “You are not going to be like the last speaker I heard with their monotone presentation style, are you?”

 

Just as spices make your favorite meals more delicious to eat, vocal variety, the way we use our voice, vocal rates, pitch, tone, pausing, makes your presentation appetizing to the audience’s ear.  When using a monotone voice to convey your message, you will lose your audience and your message will lose its power.  When you use vocal variety in your presentation, you create a more engaging, entertaining, and persuasive audience experience.  ...Read more
