Elevator Pitch

The summer is a great time to meet new people. Maybe you meet someone new in the airport, walking through your neighborhood, through that volunteer opportunity you’re working with this summer. Either way, each time to meet someone new you have the opportunity to network and make a great first impression. Having your elevator pitch prepared and perfected will help you make the best first impression possible. Elevator pitches can take many forms- it can be as an introduction in a pre-scheduled meeting or interview, or maybe you have a chance meeting on an airplane. It’s your chance to tell someone who you are, your strengths, and your passions in under 60 seconds.

The CDO has wonderful handouts to assist you in your networking endeavors here. Check out the “30 Second Pitch” handout for examples of elevator pitches. Also, Interview Stream has put together a great infographic on utilizing your elevator pitch for an interview. Check it out here!
