A friend of mine applied to a PhD program and luckily they called her for a presentation. They said that the presentation should be a maximum of 10 minutes long and should consist of three slides. These slides should include past experience and research interests, they say.
We are trying to prepare an optimal presentation. We think of,
(1) Presenting a brief CV, including academic background, education etc.
(2) Past research experience, especially during the MSc thesis,
(3) Work experience.
In addition to research experience, we want to emphasize the teaching experience and the experience gained from the courses taken.
However the problem is that research experience and work experience significantly overlap with each other and we are concerned about not using slides optimally.
We would like to hear advice from you about this type of presentations. Or if you know any sources on the web that are specifically for these type of situations, we would be very happy to hear them.
Note that the presentation should be ten minutes long with three slides and should focus on interests & past experience of the individual.
