Most job interviews and most presentations are… well, flat! They are about conveying facts and expectations, not passions and possibilities. And because people delivering these are trying to convince people to like them, they tend to be cautious not just in what they say, but in how they say it.

A job interview IS important. We want to convey passion and possibilities. And at the end, we want our future boss to have that ah-hah moment that we are the answer to their problems.
