Are your hands trembling? Does your voice bear no resemblance to your own – shaky, squeaky, uneasy. What's going on? Aren't you supposed to be the one in control? Perhaps it's your first time presenting – and you feel a bit rusty around the edges? Or it's been a while since you've had to do a presentation.

Approach your interview presentations with confidence

The actual delivery is all that can be seen. When at interview – whether it's on the phone, face-to-face or through Skype – you are transmitting vibes that automatically translate to the workplace. They portray signals about your company culture, ethos and how you present yourself.

Interview presentations are often asked from a candidate if your role involves:

  • Customer or client-facing
  • Reporting back to or managing a team
  • Progressing to management where good presentation skills are invaluable.

Below are a few tips on how to create a sound structure, which can automatically set the ground rules for allowing you to tell your potential employers why you are the right candidate for the job.

Preparing your presentation

Presenting your presentation
