Career choicesPresentation skills

To sum up...

Giving a presentation is more straightforward than most people think. If you know your audience (who will be interviewing you on the day), researched your subject and planned the structure of your talk carefully, there is really nothing to worry about. You will be amazed at the confidence that thorough preparation will give you. Remember that the audience wants you to succeed.
