An elevator speech is an excellent way to convey your skills while networking and seeking employment. Typically, an elevator speech is a one-minute summary of who you are, why you are qualified, and what you have to offer the organization or industry. A brief sales pitch will ensure that you are prepared to discuss your career goals whenever the opportunity presents itself. Some examples of where you could use your elevator speech are at a networking event, during a job interview, or in a social setting.
Review the How to Craft an Elevator Pitch (Links to an external site.) (attach below) infographic and write a script for a 1-minute sales pitch that is tailored toward your chosen career path. Please include this script or detailed outline in your initial discussion post. Then, use one of the following recording options to record your elevator speech and share it with your classmates by posting the link in your discussion post.
- YouTube (Links to an external site.)
- Voki (Links to an external site.) (This service allows you to create your Elevator Pitch Career Spots video using animated characters.)
Once you have completed your recording, share your pitch with the class by copying and pasting the link of your recording into the body of your initial post.
