Re: Create your own interview presentation

I think more companies are asking for a work samples during the interview process.  The Powerpoint and presentation you do for an interview certainly can help you highlight your accomplishments while dazzling the interviewer (hopefully).  The company can see both oral and written communication skills which are at the top of the list for most interviewers.  Your tech skills count, of course, but if you cannot explain what you did in the past, how would you interact with the new team.  

 

Thanks for sharing this information about the PowerPoint during the interview.

Create your own interview presentation

At a recent interview, I was asked to bring a powerpoint presentation addressing my background, work history, and accomplishments. I have never had that request before, but I like the fact that it gave me control over my message. For future refereence, I would consider requesting this format.

First, I want to thank you for your LinkedIn story.  When I read your comment, I looked for you on LinkedIn, but  there were 23 and not knowing where you live or what you do, I didn't take the time to look at all of them.  Even if I found you, I might not have any concrete suggestions.

Second, I'm taking this comment seriously.  You sound very frustrated.  I don't have any idea why providing less information would give you the same results.  But having "key words," which would be words that would encourage recruiters to call you, are important.  

Third, LinkdIn provides much online assistance to help with the profiles.  Go to the top "bar" and click on "more" and then go to the "Help Center" and click.  Then drill down with your questions.  

LinkedIn is a powerful tool for both recruiters and others.  I hope this helps.

@ Ruth - Good point, it does get frustrating when on eis wating for a response. Perhaps you could address recommendations and proper etiquette in a follow-up article?

That's excellent.  I know when people don't know the status of their resume submissions, it can be very frustrating.
