Your Elevator Pitch is a brief introduction which helps your audience to get a “quick picture” of what you have to offer. Consider what type of career you are targeting and include relevant skills and competencies gained from a variety of settings - from academics to the workplace.
Whether using your Elevator Pitch when meeting with representatives at a career/job fair, or during an information interview:
- Focus on skills and competencies gained from your studies, employment and volunteer experience, your interests and career goals
- Be mindful of your body language (e.g., eye contact, smile and handshake)
- Practice your Elevator Pitch to ensure it sounds natural - not memorized
