I've been asked to make a short presentation (5-10 minutes) for one of my interviews and I'm not entirely sure what I should put in it. The presentation is supposed to contain a short introduction with some information about my previous research accompanied by some slides.
Should I include short info on all the projects I have worked on, or simply focus on my master's thesis (currently working on it)?
How much of a background should I put in about me (like where I'm from and where I currently am)?
Should I include a short section of questions I am interested in exploring? My advisor mentioned that this can be both good an bad; it's good because it showcases how you think and that you are looking ahead in your career, and bad because the lab group/PoI may already have a basic plan of what they want out of their student and if this is too different from this plan, they might think twice before accepting you.
Is there even a correct way to do this?
I'd appreciate any help
I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
