What Presentation Skills Do Employer's Expect?
The job market is continually changing, and nowhere is this more true than graduate employment. Nowadays employers are expecting more and more from prospective candidates, so your skills need to be as up to date as possible.
But when it comes to presenting and media creation, just what skills do employer's expect? These can vary from one industry to another, but usually graduate employers expect a presentation at assessment centres, so being able to present confidently and calmly is a must. Some employers are now also getting candidates to produce videos as part of the selection process, making skill in this area increasingly important.
I've personally been to four assessment centres, and all of them wanted a presentation. The size of audience varied from just one person to five, but it was always a nerve racking experience as I knew so much was riding on it. That's why its so important to get as much practice as you can in presenting.
