How to prepare for the self-presentation

Lists are boring. Do not forget! So you shouldn't just list your individual stations listlessly.

Not only sports presenters know: what counts, these are the highlights . The successes that you have to show. It doesn't always have to be world-changing. Formative experiences that have helped you develop your personality can also make an impression - , on the person you are talking to.

First, put yourself in the position of the employer , create application in resume2hire . Who is he looking for, what does he want? At best, their characteristics and skills are congruent with the company's requirements . It is best to take a look at the job advertisement beforehand . Which skills are listed there?

The company's career - velvetjobs , Xing and Facebook pages also allow conclusions to be drawn. You are also welcome to browse the daily press . Interviews are particularly valuable - for example with the CEO or the HR manager. These often say a lot about a company's culture and what is important to decision-makers.

Here's how you can do it:

  1. You go through your resume in tabular form and look for positions in which you have acquired experience and qualifications that match the requirements of the company. From this you formulate arguments.
  2. If possible, spin a common thread from all of these stations and arguments . Your short presentation looks best as if your life path inevitably leads to this company.
  3. You should urgently avoid empty phrases and other empty phrases . A typical one would be: “I am very ambitious and I have a great team spirit.” Uff! Rather, it would be more specific and use examples to make your skills clear.

And of course body language is also important. Look the other person in the eye and smile more often. You can even wave your hands around, it shows energy and dynamism (just don't overdo it!). And it keeps you from nervously messing around with your hands or chewing your fingernails.
