I currently work at a credit union in an entry level job; I took it because the job market here is laughable and I know this c.u. always promotes from within (unless they can’t find a suitable candidate, of course) so I could make do with this job and bide my time till more opportunities came.
And so one came along. It’s in the IT department and it’s a blend of tech-y stuff and communications; you’d help train people on software, keep different credit unions as clients to help out when there’s trouble there, etc. The first interview went rather well, and the second part is sometime this week.
I have to give a 5-7 minute presentation in front of about 6-8 people. It can be on anything I want. They don’t want to see how much I know about a particular area; they want to see how comfortable I am speaking in front of a group, how my presentation skills are, etc.
I’m fine with the speaking in front of people and I’ve taken speech classes, so I’m fine on those areas.
But I have NO clue what to do the presentation on!
[li]nothing controversial (“Hi, I’m zwei and today I’ll talk about why we should legalize hardcore drugs!”)[/li][li]nothing boring (so while I love to cross stitch, let’s face it: that’s a dog of a topic)[/li][li]nothing stupid[/li][/ol]
What I’d like it to be:
[li]something entertaining[/li][li]something clever in a non-scathing way[/li][li]possibly funny without benig stupid or airheaded[/li][/ol]
A friend of mine suggested the ol’ “dangers of dihydrogen monoxide”, but to me, if people have heard that before, it’s just old and eyeroll-inducing and I can’t be sure if people have heard it. Plus, it’s amusing for say, 2 minutes. Stretching that to 5-7 minutes would get really old.
So anyone have any suggestions?
