Refer back to the Planning a Presentation Click & Drag learning activity.

 

Envision that you work for a major, nationwide accounting firm. Your firm has many openings, and wants to recruit the most qualified accounting students. You’ve been asked to help recruit talent at several local universities. You begin the recruiting process with many of these accounting students via Facebook and LinkedIn. Once you have identified high-potential recruits, you organize several social events to get to know them better. You also hold several informative sessions about what it’s like to work at your firm and about what career paths are available. Since so many other firms are competing for the top recruits, the presentation about opportunities at your firm is critical. You want to make sure that your presentation is organized for maximum impact.

 

Use the six identified parts of a presentation to record a 2- to 3-minute video of yourself delivering a recruiting presentation.  Remember that your target audience consists of potential employees right out of college, so you should tailor your presentation to appeal to topics that will be of interest to these recruits.

Part I:

Compare traditional communication tools with social media communication tools in no more than 175 words. What are the pros and cons of each?

 

Part II:

Review the following scenario:

Your coworker's office is situated next to yours. One day she comes into your office and informs you of a huge project that is in the process of being assigned from upper management to your department's manager. Within forty eight hours, your department manager contacts you through a text message informing you of your inclusion in this project. Unfortunately, your manager included very minimal information about project specifics, so you do not know enough to get a solid start.

Your manager is highly political and does not pay much attention to detail. Also, he does not like his personnel reaching out to individuals outside of the department, especially his counterparts.

On the other hand, you do have good relationships with other departmental managers.
