In this lesson, you will develop a presentation using Google Slides, an effective tool for introducing yourself to potential employers. This presentation can be utilized in a variety of situations, whether you’re meeting with someone who could offer you a job, internship, or volunteer position. Creating a presentation is a strategic way to consolidate and showcase your qualifications, skills, and pertinent information in one cohesive package. This not only makes it easier for you to share your credentials but also aids in persuading employers that you’re an ideal candidate for the job, equipped with the necessary skills to succeed. While this lesson focuses on Google Slides, the skills you learn can be transferred to other presentation platforms, and you could even use traditional methods like poster board to create your presentation.

To start this project in Google Slides, you’ll need to follow a few steps. First, ensure you’re signed in to your Google account. Open a new tab in your browser, head to Google.com, and sign in if you haven’t already. If you don’t have a Google account, take a moment to create one. Once you’re logged in, go to your Google Drive and begin a new slide presentation. Remember to rename the presentation to something relevant and easily identifiable. After setting up your slide deck and choosing an appropriate theme, you’ll be ready to move on to the next stage of the project, which involves creating the first slide of your presentation. Now it’s your turn: start by creating a new slide deck and giving it a meaningful name.
