The final 3 great interview presentation tips are body language, tone and enthusiasm.
- Body Language
Maintaining eye contact with your audience is critical. There is a huge temptation when giving a presentation to focus on a screen rather than your audience. Nobody likes to feel ignored and will quickly become disengaged
- Varying your Tone
It is very important to vary your tone when delivering a presentation. Speak in a conversational tone but avoid being over familiar. Change the tone to highlight key points in your presentation. Avoid being monotone as you risk sending your audience to sleep!
- Show enthusiasm
Presenters who ooze enthusiasm have the X-factor. This can really differentiate you from other contenders, who may have great content but very poor delivery as they lack enthusiasm. When you get excited or enthusiastic about a certain point or slide your audience immediately become more engaged and may even become enthusiastic themselves and enthusiasm is infectious. Enthusiasm makes you immediately more likeable to a potential employer.
Eye contact combined with a varying tone and an enthusiastic approach will go a long way in setting you apart from the competition in landing your dream job.
