Job Description for Lecturer / Speaker

Being a lecturer/speaker means more than just talking. A lecturer/speaker has a responsibility to his or her student, as any professor would, as well as to his or her fellow instructors. Lecturers/speakers will spend a considerable amount of their time teaching students and building curricula. In addition to these tasks, they will need to develop course materials, attend faculty meetings, and generally test and evaluate students as needed. Once lecturers/speakers become more experienced at their work, they will have to help new instructors by showing them how to be successful and by demonstrating their responsibilities firsthand. If a student should ever need help, a lecturer/speaker must be available by having office hours so that students can reach him or her.

Lecturer / Speaker Reviews

Q: What is it like working as a Lecturer / Speaker?

Lecturer / Speaker in Ames:
"Very flexible and rewarding job."
Pros: the people, the atmosphere, and the ability to make a difference
Cons: the pay and the commute

Lecturer / Speaker in Chicago:
"In the end it doesn't matter what you say only what you do."
Focus on your work. Leave the politics behind and be good at what you do. You are not entitled to anything, so don't compare yourself to others. In the end, people will judge you on what you do and if that happens to be political hand wringing or constantly clamoring for what you "deserve" (or worse yet putting others down for your benefit) you won't get far. There is virtue in this line of work, you must work to find it and work harder still to cultivate it.

Lecturer / Speaker in Rundu:
"Rewarding."
Pros: Making people educated.
Cons: Overworked.

Lecturer / Speaker in Danbury:
"Be Creative, Cooperative And Unique."
Learn what you can through observation, study and self improvement daily. Know that you are taking "baby steps" and you are growing within the field. Be patient and know your purpose is to help others not to use the platform as a "poor me" session.

Lecturer / Speaker in Vicksburg:
"How difficult it is to find a job."
Be flexible in what you are willing to do and teach.
