You are designing PowerPoint slides based on your research related to the Job Hunting Project. Most companies have strict guidelines for designing presentations, wording text, and selecting visuals. This is called nomenclature and it helps to create a consistent look and tone across all materials produced by employees. Following are the guidelines for completing this project.

Minimize the use of purple and brown. Visuals must be used on at least 50% of the slides and some text may overlay a picture. Follow the Module 5 guidelines for creating slides and Module 25 for incorporating visuals.
Audience: Your target audience is anyone just entering the professional job market. Some may have held minimum wage jobs; some may be seeking their first job.
