All jokes aside I think it's a great idea.What do you guys think? On point, or bad idea?
Speaking on subjects that you have a passion for and coupled with real experience and insights and therefore confidence is the way to go.
And (this obviously has to be carefully thought about though) sharing your lived experience and with honesty adds a whole new level of authenticity and meaning.
You may very well find ten minutes is too short a time!
And come to think of it: you could be an ambassador for HR i.e. it's become very apparent to me that many people don't actually understand the concept of HR. Maybe you can set the record straight for some and score some major points in the process.
Nice to see you on this path though. Keep it up. And I am led to believe that there's apparently no shortage of open positions for (addiction) counselors over there. I didn't even know (addiction) counseling is a uni. course and a paying job over there. According to my favorite professor on the topic: business was booming in 2019 and there was a shortage of (addiction) counselors. I can only imagine that such boom has gone from strength to strength since then.
Good on you and rooting for you though!
Was going to provide you with ideas for props to be used but they probably would have you taken into custody! Or scare the living shit out of your audience (but you'd have their attention for sure)!
The caveat of all of the above: @Xorkoth has just posted some very valid points and that should at least be considered and noted.
