i need to do this
whatsoever i'd probably say 'the simpsons' or 'comics' or 'toast'.
what kind of job? did they give you an idea of the content at all?
also something that is semi-relevant to the job, or has some links at least.
"and we'd like you to do a 5 minute presentation" with no elaboration?
Are you sure you want this job?
and the job is perfect for me and what i want to do right now
1) is related to the job/company (though, preferably indirectly); AND
2) you're interested in / already know a bit about; AND
3) you're able to present interesting information about that the people who work at the company might not already know.
with moker operating powerpoint
If there is no brief, then do a presentation about yourself. Give you a chance to do a bit of self-promotion
The inherent sexism in society probably means that a man doing a presentation about himself as self-promotion is seen as go-getting and http://i.istockimg.com/file_thumbview_approve/10124461/2/stock-photo-10124461-excited-caucasian-business-man-fist-pump.jpg
For a woman it would probably be seen as a sign of narcissism and a negative thing that gets over scrutinised and ultimately dismissed.
I know exactly what to do it on xx
really wanted to make a prezzi but i think 'no powerpoint' kinda means 'please don't use a laptop or anything'
With the cards....
and talk about something you are passionate about.. (avoid politics)
It's like being 10 years old again and doing presentations at school.
i did my solo talk on the anti-apartheid movement in front of the whole school when i was 11 and got a certificate. thats the pinnacle of my public speaking career i think. had to present some awards a few months ago too. that was awful.
It's quite a good idea.
as part of a wide-ranging recruitment process, I guess it might have a place. Only 5 minutes after all.
I had to do something like this as part of a training scheme designed to get me "work ready" I did a presentation on ultimate frisbee, went down quite well.
I once had to do a 30 second "about me" chat at an induction where I had to talk about my hobbies. I couldn't think of any so made some up on the spot, and for the next month or so I had to dodge questions about rowing and badminton from people who actually did them.
And if they do t know what DiS is, just say "That's golf, maaan" and continue with your presentation
"Oh, it's just the website I'll be spending half my working day reading if you hire me."
a kids party kind of one.
was what i did a presentation on, the last time i was given free choice.
