The PowerPoint Résumé

Here's a unique way to introduce your skills in the interview...

A job seeker from Chicago went to an interview armed not with his résumé, but with a floppy disk. As he interviewed with the sales manager for a position as an account executive, he asked if he could use his computer to demonstrate his selling skills.

The disk contained a 14-page PowerPoint presentation file that detailed how he would make the company money if they employed him. He wowed the interviewer with a well thought out presentation and got the job.
