I'm doing my masters in engineering, and I have a job interview tomorrow. They've asked me to prepare a presentation of my research for the interview. The thing is, the PhD student I've been working with has asked me not to share the information with anyone else since not all of it has been published yet...What should I do?

If it's unpublished, just show them a diluted version, just the .ppt that will make them interested without being spoonfed.

Edit: I just assumed you want the job. If you don't want it, don't bother to lose time with the interview and work for the desired degree instead.

You should discuss this with the PhD student and supervisor (or other collaborators) - not with us.

I second atyy- you have an ethical obligation to get permission from your collaborators before presenting *anything*.
