Hi Karl, I have to make a short video presentation of myself. Its like an interview which i have to present who am I. This would be my first time doing it and it would also be my first time getting an interview (first job). I don't know how to start, I'm new to this and it's hard to say something i haven't experienced yet. I am only a beginner, fresh from the university. No real life experiences yet. What do i do to make my video presentation good? The only thing that i know about is "I would love to have this job and you won't be disappointed to have me" which is to cliche. Thank you so much. I hope you could read this as soon as possible.

Hey Carl... your videos are so interesting... Do you have some rules for how to explain "how to do" ? I need to explain a process in steps and dont know how to begin :( Thank you
Carl Kwan (1 month ago)
Thanks for the kind words and question. For "how to" always start with the problem that needs solving and the goal or desired result. Good luck!

Do I have to write all this in the MS slides? for example: My introduction etc.
Carl Kwan (5 months ago)
Thanks for the question! No, you shouldn't write any of this. This is what you would say when you introduce yourself, but if you think there is a good reason that your audience would need it written down, then go for it.

Hello how can I introduce myself to my professor in a professional way? Thanks for your help 😊
Catherine Dela Cruz (10 months ago)
Carl Kwan Thank you sir 😊
Carl Kwan (10 months ago)
That's a great question. Be sure to keep it short and to the point. Consider why you're introducing yourself and what the expectations are. And check out the videos I have about introducing yourself, as those should help. Thanks and good luck.
Userme (11 months ago)
Hi, very good video, thank you. I will have an interview with different dept in the same company, and part of it to do presentation for 15 minutes about a subject my choice. So before the presentation, I want to introduce myself. The interviewers know my dept and what I do. So how would I Introduce myself? By the way I work now as a help desk specialist (day) and teach courses (evening) within the same organization. So I am think to introduce myself before I start my presentation as following: "Hello my name is AAA, I work for the help desk of the IT dept. and also teach evening courses with XYZ dept." is that good introduction? Thank you so much.
Carl Kwan (11 months ago)
Thanks for the comments and question. You could introduce yourself that way, but you could try something more engaging, too. I have several videos about starting a presentation and getting the audience's attention. Search for "carl kwan attention" and you'll find them. Good luck!
Userme (11 months ago)
He Carl Do you have any advice/tips on how to use or not to use hands while presenting? Thanks
Carl Kwan (11 months ago)
Great question! Yes, I have a video about hands that'll help: https://youtu.be/AGyCY6ZDBBk
Userme (11 months ago)
Hi Carl, the first step is to tell your name + company. What about if you work in the same company? Let say you want to do presentation as part of job interview process within the same company but different department? Thank you so much.
Carl Kwan (11 months ago)
Hi LezaWang, thanks for the excellent question. If your work in the same company, then you don't need to say that. If they don't know what department you're in, tell them. If they do, then no need to mention it. Good luck!

Thanks for sharing! This is a great start. I would recommend talking about your focus first and adding the "even if" part to make your message more meaningful. Right now, it's a little generic but it's a great start. Nice!

Hyun Hyun (1 year ago)
Thank you for your service. This video perfectly inspires to me in introducing myself even though i am speaking in english as a second language as you say. But how can i attract people in spite of having no positions to give help or benefits??
Carl Kwan (1 year ago)
Thanks for your comment and question. Everyone has something they are good at or have experience with. I'm sure you could think of something but just need to be a bit creative. Some things seem unrelated but they can be applied in other situations. Just use your imagination a little :)

My name is Michael Jiang, joint with company med in 2015 and promoted as commercial analyst.My specialty I have been building my experience in financial services over 20 yrs. I took various roles in personal and commercial banking. I have proven rerecord of being to achieve good sales result and build strong relationship with clients and partners Even if---------------------------------------------------- what should I say after that
Carl Kwan (1 year ago)
Thanks for sharing, Michael. I think it's pretty good but here are some suggestions: 1. State your position, over 20 yrs experience and specialty, rather than your history. 2. Focus on what value you offer. Your "proven" record and the other parts are too general. Everyone else probably would say something similar. 3. Identify the biggest issue/problem of the target audience, then you'll know the "even if" part. Good luck!

Hi Carl! Your video is great, Ive watched it three times! I am struggling with my introduction. I would love your feedback please :) Hi, I’m Nicola ... from ...... We are an independent consultancy service who help first home buyers purchase their home from a position of knowledge and confidence, even if home ownership is still a distant dream for them.
Carl Kwan (1 year ago)
Thanks Nicola. This is a good start. Have a look at Erin's comment/introduction here in the comments. She really nailed it and might give you some ideas. Consider who your audience is and speak to them about what they care about. Good luck!
Erin Sullivan (1 year ago)
Can you tell me how this elevator pitch sounds? I am a recent MBA graduate of Strayer University. My specialty is in cost accounting. I help mangers make production decisions through forecasting and budgeting. Even if they have never worked with a budget or forecast before or if they absolutely hate the budgeting and forecasting process, I can show managers how to use their reports to save the company money and increase productivity.

Razel Paras (2 years ago)
is this OK? "Hi! My name is {my name}, Grade 9 – Fortezza of Mother of Divine Providence School. I help my classmates become aware of the importance of schooling and become of a good example of my fellow MDPSians. Even if you are a new student of MDPS, you can count on me as your classmate and I can assist you in your school problems. My hobbies are playing minecraft, biking, playing badminton, listening to my favorite music, and watching movies."
Carl Kwan (2 years ago)
This is great! Wow, nice work! I would only say that you don't need to tell them what school you go to because you all go there. Instead of that, talk about about the "even if" part. For example, "even if you are a new student and you're nervous about ____," Thanks for sharing and good luck.

Is this OK, for internal presentation Carl? "Hi my name is Jimmy, I'm a former Compass program member/CSA/STA and Observer of our great company... My specialty is Claims settlements, investigations, risk mitigation, statistics, and Customer relations...Even If we can not change the Frequency of losses today , we can study them, thereby being able to formulate changes for the future to put downward pressures on frequency AND severity of accidents in the future ."
Carl Kwan (2 years ago)
That's great, Jimmy! You nailed it! My only feedback would be to simplify the language so it's less wordy. For example, instead of "we can study them, thereby being able to formulate," just say "we can study them to find better solutions." Nice work!
Sandra Stamps (2 years ago)

Debra Thomas (2 years ago)
Hi.  My professor asked the students to look at this.  I'm not sure how this relates to our studies in mental health counseling.  Do you have any ideas how this could be tailored for students giving presentations or up and coming counselors teaching a psycho education group?
Carl Kwan (2 years ago)
+Debra Thomas Thanks for the question. You can certainly tailor the video content for students or counsellors by considering who your audience is and what your situation is. Students may want to talk about what they are studying and why; on the other hand, counsellors may want to talk about what their role as a counsellor is. Hope that helps.

Rifle Twist (2 years ago)
What would be your opinion be on calling an employer a day before the interview to confirm date and time/place? Thank you for any info.
Carl Kwan (2 years ago)
+Rifle Twist I think it depends on when the interview was originally scheduled. If it was scheduled more than a week ago, then sure, it's a good idea to call to confirm. Just don't sound worried when you call. Be confident. You never know who the person might be that takes your call. Good luck!
Federica (2 years ago)
Hi Carl, I'm an Italian student and I'll have to do an oral exam of English within a few days. It consists initially on a brief presentation of yourself. So, I'd like to get advice on what are the most important points I should focus on as I don't have a company. thanks
Federica (2 years ago)
+Carl Kwan thank you very much for your advice!!!
Carl Kwan (2 years ago)
+Federica Sorry for the late reply. I have a video about choosing presentation topics. Watch that video and it should give you some ideas. Here it is: https://youtu.be/ukIJapE56yc Good luck!
