Describe Yourself in 30 Seconds

Updated: Feb 2

Sounds challenging, but it's possible. It is called an '#ElevatorPitch' because it is the length of time you would describe yourself during a short elevator ride. Since there are a limited number of points you will discuss, it should be easy to prepare.

If you plan to attend job fairs, #network, or conduct #informationinterviews, it's good to rehearse your pitch in advance. Some say this can be accomplished in 60 seconds. Shorter is better, however, so you do not ramble. These are some questions you might want to consider as you prepare:

  • Who are you?

  • What are your interests?

  • What are your top skills?

  • Why are you there?

  • What do you want? (out of a meeting or a career goal)

  • Ask a question (if it is an #informationinterview)

That's it. Short post to match the short pitch you will create.
