WEB 112 Final Presentation Guidelines

Presentation Time Limit: At least 9 minutes and 30 seconds (we’ll do q&a in Canvas asynchronously)

Content:

  • Minimum 10 slides per person
  • Title/Intro Page/Topic: What do you want us to know about you?
  • Objective: What is your career objective?
  • Biographical highlights: What about you makes you a strong candidate/employee in this field/industry?
  • Résumé: Full résumé (note: this is not the English word “resume”) plus pop-ups or callouts of significant items. (See what I just did there?)
  • Cover letter: Full cover letter plus pop-ups or callouts of significant items.
  • References: Have a cool reference? Highlight it, like an endorsement or testimonial. Otherwise, references are generally “available upon request”
  • Repeat Topic
  • Conclusion

Assessment:

  • Content
  • Paragraph and sentence structure (subject, predicate, length)
  • Topic, Details, Repeat Topic, Conclusion
  • Spelling
  • Grammar
  • Appearance
  • Non-verbal and verbal communication
  • Connection to the audience
  • Preparing a trigger question
  • Preparation for other audience questions

Allowances:

  • How the presentation is created is up to you.
  • Creativity and visual choices, typography, etc. will NOT be the principal part of the assessment, but will be evaluated.

Deliverables:

  • Hard copy of résumé (both types, on résumé paper)
  • Hard copy of cover letter (on résumé paper)
  • It is a good idea for you to have physical copies of all these documents printed on résumé paper, but you will not be turning those materials in for a grade
  • Share digital versions of above via Google Drive; include a new document with links to social media profiles (as appropriate)
  • Presentation video
  • “Elevator Pitch”
  • Any other materials (QR codes, business cards, etc) should also be placed in that folder for evaluation
