Hey guys,

there is nothing to worry about in the presentation and group work.
I personally find group work lots of fun and the presentation is a great chance to stand out through excellent communication skills.

now, keep in mind that like anything else at an AC, there will be a terrible pressure out there and you need to be efficient nevertheless.
These are all things you have probably read before, so I wont repeat…just make sure you come across as pleasant, non-dominant but assertive if required, and encourage the others to talk as well. Make sure the group task is finalised even if you need to push it a bit in the end. That’s what I did at company X and the HR thought it was a rescuing intervention. Or else the entire group would have failed to get an offer.

Presentation - most probably you will be given a deadly amount of reading to do in a terribly short time! Dont get disheartened, just skim through quickly, use a marker for main ideas if allowed, or else jot down some phrases quickly. Most important is to remember the central idea of the entire stuff and how it connects to the main questions (usually asked at the beginning), and if possible, some statistics, percentages, numbers which you can write down beforehand. Using statistics to illustrate a point comes across as quite professional and it will be to your advantage. And remember to smile, be positive and look the interviewer/HR person straight in the eye. Believe me, IT WORKS like charm!

Good luck!
