Interview presentations are becoming a regular part of hiring practice. They are especially common for senior positions, or in industries that need strong communication skills.
An interview presentation is a short persuasive talk as part of an interview or assessment day. The employer will ask you to prepare a presentation on a specific topic in advance, or to present a blind presentation.
For a marketing position, you could be asked to market or sell a product, or to predict a market trend. Higher-level positions may require you to present a strategic outlook for the industry.
With blind presentations, a lot of the expectations are the same. The difference is that instead of preparing in advance, you will be given a topic on the day of the interview and will be given a limited time to prepare.
Many employers opt for a presentation interview as it gives a better overview of your general aptitude when compared to a traditional question and answer interview. The presentation is your opportunity to showcase your knowledge, experience and communication skills as well as your general organisation and diligence.
Keep each slide short and significant, aiming for no more than 10 slides. This ensures the information you deliver is memorable and will help you to stand out from other interviewees.
Use a range of formats to help illustrate your points. Include graphs, statistics, diagrams, video clips, and images to help break up large volumes of text and maintain the attention of the interviewers.
Include quotes from industry leaders and research pieces. This helps give your points authority and demonstrate your commercial awareness.
Incorporate company colours or fonts in the design of your presentation. This will show you have done your research and highlight your brand awareness.
During your presentation, you will be scrutinised by the interviewer, or by a panel of interviewers, and they will be judging your suitability for the role, based on what you talk about and how you present yourself.
