Career Information for Jobs Involving Presentation Skills

Advertising Manager

Advertising managers are hired to put together advertising campaigns that attract customers. They usually work for advertising agencies or media firms, meaning they must present their campaigns to clients before proceeding with their plans. Having presentation skills is helpful in convincing clients that their advertising campaigns will be effective. Advertising managers need at least a bachelor's degree in advertising or a related field.

Statistician

Statisticians perform a variety of analytical tasks in order to produce conclusions about data. They usually create surveys, then collect the data from those surveys and analyze them for their employers. They present the findings of their data, making presentation skills key for this career. They may work for governments or research companies. They need a master's degree in statistics or math, although sometimes a bachelor's degree is acceptable for an entry-level position.

Anthropologist

Anthropologists travel and conduct research in order to study and understand human interactions. Their work is used in a variety of ways, including helping companies produce more effective products. Anthropologists collect data during research projects and present their findings for their employers and peers. Having presentation skills is useful when interpreting their data for others. Anthropologists need a master's degree or Ph.D. for a career in this field.

Historian

Historians study the past and they provide context for modern life, exploring ancient texts and artifacts. They work for museums, archives, historical societies, and even governments. They must present their theories and interpretations of the past, often in print, as in reports and articles, but also in educational programs and exhibits. Having presentation skills is therefore useful for historians. They need a master's degree for the most part, but often a doctoral degree is preferred.

Chemist

Chemists perform research in the form of laboratory projects, where they test atoms, molecules and elements. While they do a lot of work in the lab analyzing and testing products, they also must present their research to their colleagues and other professionals.
