In a recent blog post, VC Brad Feld discusses job interviewing. One of the suggestions: give the candidate something to do, for example have potential sales people do a presentation. An excellent suggestion.
To take this a bit further. If you are up for a job interview, think of it as a presentation of your story. What do you want to tell? What clutter can you get rid of? And yes maybe, what visuals do you need to bring along (probably 1-page printouts)? The organization structure of that big project you managed? The personal thank you letter you received from the client's CEO?
