Whether you are at a career fair or other type of networking event, an elevator pitch can help you stand out from the crowd. Keep in mind that employers spend a lot of time at job fairs listening to a high number of applicants, so it is important to keep your pitch focused on what makes you unique as a possible employee.
Use the following points as a guide for your pitch:
1. Introduce yourself.
2. Name the field you are working in.
3. Describe which type of company you’d like to work in.
4. Name your unique selling position (USP) by stating any skills and background information that makes you the best candidate.
5. Remember to state the benefits you would bring as an employee.
