    Posted: 23 May 2011 at 02:25

Please, could someone help a beginner to PowerPoint, produce a 15 minute presentation at an interview I have next week?

I have today and tomorrow to develop a presentation for a REALLY IMPORTANT (to me) interview. I need a title page, an introduction page, a 'content 'set-up and a summary. How should I approach this?

Should I keep the PowerPoint 'bit' simple and expand verbally, or would it be better to put more information on screen? There will only be 2 people on the interview panel, both of whom I know; should I let them know that this use of PowerPoint is a first for me?

Any practical advice would be most gratefully accepted!

Hi Lynne,

welcome to the 123PPT Community and PowerPoint Forum.

In an interview you really should try to minimize the amount of time you want to use PowerPoint. The main reason for this Lynne is that in an interview, the interviewers are interested in you. They want to talk to you. Ask you questions. Hear your thoughts on various issues, and your ideas on various things.

A PowerPoint presentation during an interview is a dsitraction. It distracts from you. From what you want to say and from what you are "selling". Yourself so to speak.

If you really needed to do a presentation then the first thing you need to consider is the theme of the presentation. For example, is it for a position regarding a job? What kind of position is it? In what industry?

Choosing the right PowerPoint Template design is critical to showing a professional presentation.

Ideally, I would seek out a suitable PowerPoint Template design, one which mirrors the theme of the presentation. The template will enable you to enter a Presentation Title and a Subtitle/ author details if you wish.

Due to the time of your presentation I would be surprised if you required more than 5 slides (one each third minute). And certainly if you are allowing time for questions at the end of your presentation, you may only require perhaps 3 or 4 slides to just illustrate your key points.
