Interviewing 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.
