Finding that Next Job

Your Elevator Pitch

I just came across this great list of job search tips for 2011. 

While some of the suggestions, like reaching out to your network and studying up on the company you’re interviewing with may seem obvious, job seekers frequently overlook them. 

I’ve been interviewing people the past couple of weeks for a temporary opening in our department and everyone has been great, but nobody has had a great elevator pitch.  Think about your elevator pitch this way:

This is who I am

This is what I’ve done

This is what I can do for you

This is why I’d like to work for you

This is why you should hire me

Write it down, then practice it until you’re comfortable with your elevator pitch.  Think about creating a condensed version for networking opportunities.  Good luck!
