Interns, Start Your Research with Slideshare

The Problem.

Be it writing a paper for school, building a presentation for a class, or researching a topic for a project at work, a good research strategy is necessary to find good information fast. Luckily we don’t have to flip through a twenty volume collection of encyclopedias, but even internet research can take a while to find the right quality and quantity of relevant info.

Enter Slideshare.

Slideshare is a social platform for sharing presentations on various topics. The beauty of the site is that you can browse a variety of shared presentations and compile your own to suit the specific scope of your project. Topics like social media, SEO, and tutorials/lessons are common topics with a ton of material.

Slideshare is also a great tool to build your personal brand. If you have something to say about a topic or have put together a presentation you are particularly proud of, post it on Slideshare! The presentation can be embedded in blogs and social media platforms, and are safely stored online for later use. Check out Slideshare’s Blog for the latest updates and use examples and scroll through the presentation for an overview of Slideshare.
