You may be asked to make a presentation relevant to the role for which you are applying (eg, sales or training).

You will normally given advance notice that you need to give a presentation.  Ask for clarification on the following:

  • The subject
  • How long the presentation should be
  • How many people will be in the audience
  • What equipment will be available (laptop, projector, etc)
  • What software will be used (eg PowerPoint)
  • Whether the presentation needs to be sent in advance or brought on a USB stick

Keep your presentation simple but informative. Practise beforehand to make sure you have the timing right for the time allotted to you and to allay any nerves.  Bring a print-out of your presentation on the day as a back-up in case of equipment failure.
