College and university educators often advise their students that learning how to deliver oral presentations in English is necessary for success in university courses, and ultimately, for future careers in various fields of employment. In attempt to verify this assumption, a qualitative pilot study was conducted with recent university graduates from a Japanese university (n=41). Findings revealed how often these recent graduates presented for work, what language they presented in, what types of presentations they delivered, and which techniques and skills they deemed necessary. These findings have important implications for university course designers and instructors alike.
