Interview Tip of the Month:
Create a Killer Elevator Pitch
Having a 30- to 90-second pitch planned out will help you network with confidence and make those awkward initial interview questions a breeze. Make sure your pitch contains the following elements:
- What you want to be known and recognized for
- The value you bring to a potential employer
- Accomplishments that demonstrate your core competencies
- Write down your pitch, and then practice and time it. Record yourself and critically examine your message, body language and rate of speech. Once you're satisfied, try it out on a trusted friend or family member. Use their feedback to polish your presentation until it's pitch perfect.
