Job Interview = Running Presentation

Life has be la vida loca lately to say the least. 

I had a job interview on Monday where they wanted me to give a 10-15 minute presentation on my Academic Advising Philosophy (which makes sense since it was an Academic Advising job) however I have never been an Academic Advisor before per say and therefore don’t have an exact Philosophy or style. I decided to compare Academic Advising to Coaching a Runner. 

I also decided not to use a powerpoint or technology for my presentation. Mainly because I didn’t have the time to make one and also because I hate standing in the dark with a pp when presenting. However I didn’t JUST want to stand up there. So I brought some “props” to tie into my presentation.

  • Running Book – doing your researching, becoming an expert
  • Whistle/Ipod – motivation and personality
  • Sweatband/Road ID Light – aides to help overcome obstacles
  • Water – refresh, renewal
  • Medal – future oriented, eye on the prize

Clearly I explained how all those notions tied into Academic Advising. I promise you the presentation kicked ass. It was a gamble that I wanted to take and I ended up very pleased with it. I think the folks I presented to also liked it because it also showed them my personality. We shall see, but I will turn to running in times of need from here on out – even when it comes to job interviews!
