Presentation Requests

Would you like a COER Career Advisor to speak to your class?  Career advisors can present a workshop to your students on a variety of professional development topics. Consider our ready-made seminars and workshops, or let us know of a topic you would like us to present. If you would like to schedule a guest speaker, or if you are planning to miss a day of class, we can cover for you. We can also work with you to arrange an employer to speak to your class.

To set up a date and time, please fill out our brief Speaker's Bureau Request form.
