So I got invited to do an on-site interview and as part of it, the hiring manager wants me to present some of the chemistry I'm currently working on. The problem is all my work has been government contracted and hasn't been published, so due to confidentiality I can't present any complete schemes or specific structures. Any tips on how to ace this presentation?

I had that before in 2019, my work was not published yet, I discussed with my PI about the presentation (lucky my PI very supportive ) . my PI told me to tell the hiring manager that its confidential info , and I still can show the result but will hide the disease or cell line or any drugs/construct that I was using (and luckily the hiring manager also nice and understand ) so I presented. Example: I was working on a rare disease so I just marked as disease A , give an intro about the disease, and the diagnosis is broad so even we tell they still not sure what exactly this disease is, and labels the drug as drug #1 or #2, you can share the method how you get the data. The most important thing is how deep we understand the results, and future step to push the project move forward. Yeah and I able to switched from academia to industry 🤓 and my paper out after I left (luckily “again” I able to keep my first author credit lol ) so good luck 🍀

Do you have any non-confidential work completed? Maybe you can talk about other possible ideas without giving too many details so that you don't give away too much information without being hired.

A good option is to show in your profiles that you collaborate with government departments, this is taken very seriously because if you work with the government is because you do it very well.

I am a mechanical engineer and from time to time I provide support to government departments, government jobs are usually classified, but just by saying that you work with the government companies take it very seriously, it shows that you are a trusted professional.

I am a mathematician, and I don't know in your field but after a while, the government tends to absorb all your time, thanks to that I haven't had to look for a job with private companies.
