How to Electrify Employers: Employ a Prezi
Not many people know much about prezis. This deficit can well work for you in your job search because it offers a chance to jump ahead of the pack and stand out from your competition.
A prezi is relatively new presentation software that explodes with excitement on a computer screen. At a viewer’s direction, topics zoom in and out of the spotlight — what tech buffs call “a zooming user interface.” No one falls asleep watching a prezi.
The word prezi in lowercase letters is a short form of the Hungarian word for “presentation.”
The capitalized word Prezi refers to the leading commercial company for prezis: Prezi.com. The company’s presentation templates are free to job seekers. If you’ve never seen an example of this high-octane technology and want to jump right in, the Prezi.com website is the place to start.
