The Elevator Pitch is a term that is bandied about often. But what is it? Is it actually something you would quickly say to an executive as you were going up in an elevator together? Well, yes and no. Your elevator pitch is your quick personal selling/request statement. It might be used if you were riding in an elevator with Mark Templeton; however, there are many more likely uses such as cover letters, email introductions, mentor requests and introductions at career fairs. The elevator pitch is so important because it is the first thing that people ever hear or read about you. Even before your resume gets in their hands, your elevator pitch sets the stage for why they would spend the time to look at your resume, which leads to the interview, which leads to the job offer.
So how do you structure an elevator pitch so that it works so well in all of these different forms? Come hear Jane Seelbach from Right Management talk about how to create an elevator pitch that elevates YOU.
Meeting Notes: Right Management will provide appetizers and beverages.
