3. Finding and bringing your own projector

Our current recommendation for a small projector you can bring to the interview.

It’s important that you bring a small back-up projector to your interviews. What if the customer says they’ll have a conference room with a projector? Still… bring your own projector. If you don’t, someday you’ll find a) their VP took over the conference room, b) their projector just broke, or c) your laptop won’t “talk to” their projector.

We’re always on the lookout for the best projectors to use. Of course, projector selection is subjective, but our main criteria are:

  • Small size and weight
  • Bright… about 1000 lumens or more
  • High quality projected image
  • Reliability and durability
  • Quiet fan

Our current “favorite” is the Optoma ML1050ST… a short-throw, 1000 lumen, palm-sized projector. For more info, visit this Amazon site (and pick up a tripod while you're at it):

Additionally, it's a good idea to bring an extension cord as well, to make sure you can reach a power outlet.

Please let us know if you find a new favorite!
