In PowerPoint, you create and design slides in a presentation. You can start with a blank presentation, an existing saved presentation, or a template. When you open PowerPoint, the PowerPoint Presentation Gallery opens. It contains a variety of template choices and quick access to recent presentations. Let's use the PowerPoint Presentation Gallery to open a blank presentation. If you have not already opened PowerPoint, on the Dock, click PowerPoint. In the PowerPoint Presentation Gallery, under Themes, click All. Click White, and then click Choose. Tip To always start with a blank presentation when you open PowerPoint, select the Don't show this when opening PowerPoint check box. To create a new blank presentation at any time in PowerPoint, on the File menu, click New Presentation (also written as File > New Presentation in this tutorial). • To show the PowerPoint Presentation Gallery at any time while using PowerPoint, click File > New from Template. In a new blank presentation, you can simply click a slide and begin adding text and objects. However, before you begin, you should familiarize yourself with some of the user interface elements that you can use in all presentations. Let's take a look at some of PowerPoint user interface elements.

Your street or box number City, State, Zip Date Contact’s Name Contact’s Title Organization Name Street Address City, State, Zip Dear Mr. Or Ms. (person’s last name only): Paragraph 1: State immediately the position you are pursuing and how you came to know of the opening. If you have an alumnus, family or other contact at the organization, you can mention that here as well. Tell the employer briefly (one or two sentences) why you are interested in this position. Paragraph 2: Explain the skills and experiences you have that will make you successful in the position. Talk about classes you have taken, activities you have been involved in, summer experiences you have had. You do not have to have directly related experience but think about the skills you have gained from what you have done and how those could relate to the duties of the position you are applying for. You do not want to repeat your resume to the employer in this paragraph but this is the place to highlight related accomplishments that will make the reader want to learn more, which will lead them to your resume. The goal is to show the employer that you have confidence in your ability to succeed in the position. Paragraph 3: Demonstrate that you have done some research about this organization. Go to their web site, look in industry periodicals (Ad Week, Wall Street Journal, Chronicle of Higher Education) and talk to alumni or other contacts that may currently work for the organization. This research does not have to be extensive but it shows that you have taken some time to think about this position and put some effort into this letter. This makes a very good impression on employers. It shows that this is not a form letter where only the address and contact name is changed for each position. Paragraph 4: State that you would welcome a personal interview to further discuss this opportunity. If you need to explain anything out of the ordinary on your resume, this is the place to do it. You might mention that if you do not hear anything from the potential employer in two to three weeks time that you will call to follow up this letter to see where they are in their process. Finish by thanking them for their attention and express a desire to meet them sometime in the near future. Sincerely, Your signature (leave 4 blank spaces for this) Your name in print
Template for Sample Parent Information Letter or E-Mail Adapted from examples shown at www.scouting.org/CubScouts/Leaders/DenLeaderResources.aspx: _________ __, 20__ Dear Webelos den parents: Today we completed the following requirements or activity badge achievements from your son’s Webelos Handbook: . Our special guest leaders were __________ and __________, who . For our next den meeting on ______day, _________ __, 20__ ,at __________, we will be working on these requirements or activity badge achievements from your son’s Webelos Handbook: . o help ve son complete the __________ which he received at the den meeting (if you need another, please let me know) or review those requirements in your son’s Webelos Handbook. Our special guest leaders planning to assist at that meeting are __________ and __________. If you would like to assist at this or another meeting, please let me know! Our summary of the den meeting dates, plans and rank requirements to be covered is below. We have a pack meeting on ______day, _________ __, 20__ at __________. The current program for that event is as follows: __________. Our den will __________. We also have an upcoming pack outing on ______day, _________ __, 20__ at ________, where we will ________. Please sign up for that event by contacting ________ or ________. Finally, let me give two advancement reminders. First, to earn the Webelos badge, your son doesn’t have to do EVERYTHING in the book (earning the Webelos badge requires three activity badges, the Arrow of Light requires five more, each with some special requirement about what group—Physical Skills, Mental Skills, Community, Technology, and Outdoor groups— the activity badge is from). We’re doing some of the more interesting and challenging ones in our meeting, but the good news is that the program is flexible. There will be other activity badges that can be earned at campouts and other activities. Second, let me remind you that there are a number of achievements from your son’s handbook that must be completed by you at home, and you—as “Akela,” a leader—should review those with your son, and sign off in the handbook when it is complete. A list is provided below for your convenience. Some of these (like requirements related to faith) are clearly family matters, many of these are part of what you will doing anyway as you raise your son, and others you will be glad to have (like doing chores around the house)!
