I applied to a catering position this week, for which I am qualified with at least two years of experience as a waitress, and another job as a museum assistant which gave me great customer service skills. The good news : I got an interview in a week or so.

I was not really nervous until I received an email stating that the interview requires me to give a 3 minutes presentation about any item I want to sell. Now I took a look at all the techniques for the " sell me a pen" question, but when I read the email I get this impression that I will not get to interact with the person, and so it will be hard to ask for their needs and listen as everybody advises.

Moreover I don't really understand why a catering position requires a sales technique?

I hope someone understands the interview's purpose, as I am a bit confused.
For now I thought about a wrist watch since keeping time is a positive behaviour that can be linked to the job.

They are looking for how you react to situations.  the presentation is just to highlight your skills at handling things as in catering you will need to handle things not necessarily sell, but they want confident people
