Assessment Centre Presentations Preparation
Another important assessment centre task is the presentation. Learn more below.
As part of an assessment centre you may be asked to give a short presentation. This exercise can take several formats:
You may be asked to make a presentation on a case study you have previously done as part of the assessment center or you will receive a topic along with some relevant data. Typically the duration of the presentation is 10-20 minutes, and you will be given 30 minutes beforehand to prepare.
Sometimes you may be given a topic in advance of the assessment centre or asked to pre-prepare a presentation on a business plan for your first 6 months in the role that you are applying for. These presentations are usually scheduled to last at least 30 minutes.
While the content and the quality of the presentation is important, the purpose is not to test your knowledge, but to see how well you can deliver a well-structured, clear, confident presentation in public and how you handle and answer questions coming up at the same time. You may be allowed to use a powerpoint, overhead projector, data projector, or flip chart during your presentation.
