Your Whole Career in 15 Seconds: How to Shape an Effective 'Elevator Pitch' that Sets You Apart, Makes You Memorable, and Gets You to Where You Want to Go!
The person on the other side of the desk says, "So tell me about yourself..." What do you say to THAT? How do you present yourself confidently, competently, and even eloquently? All in less than 30 seconds? Easy! You use your "elevator speech" -- a crisp, succinct, memorable statement that communicates your strengths and your potential value-added.
In this interactive session, you will craft an effective "elevator speech" for yourself. You will learn how to employ a simple, straight forward format; and you will get some experience presenting your "pitch."
Never again will you be stumped or tongue-tied when a hiring manager asks, "Why should I hire you?"
This session is presented by Dr. Don Blohowiak, an award winning marketer and former career advisor to top executives at leading corporations, nonprofits, and government agencies. Don holds a PhD in human development, a master's in organizational systems, and has more than 30 years experience as an executive and hiring manager in numerous organizations from California to New York.
