Oral Business Presentation
The #1 rule is to know your audience and purpose. Once you know this, you can arrange an intro, body, and conclusion for your presentation that meets your and your audience’s needs. Be sure to check in with your audience to ensure they are listening and understanding what you are saying. By reading their nonverbal cues, you will see this.
Preparing is key when giving a presentation.
Prepare something very concise and clear, so your audience will get it right away without confusion.
Keep it simple while summarizing topics throughout and at the end of the presentation.
Be passionate about what you are speaking about to keep the audience engaged. If you are passionate, your audience will stay involved and not get bored.
Use visual aids like tables, pictures, graphs, and videos will help.
If you have stage fright, practice, practice, practice and really know your material. It becomes easier over time, especially if you remind yourself that you know what you are talking about and have some wisdom to share.

Editing Challenge 12
An interview is the opportunity for the employer to meet you and determine if you are a good fit for the company. When going in for an interview, remain calm. They already like you and want you to succeed. Know that you already have the qualifications needed to get the job, or they would not have called you in. Your resume got you in the door and showed your skills. Your interview shows your personality; so, allow it to shine through. Walk in with confidence and know that they want you already.
