THE “ELEVATOR PITCH” The “Elevator Pitch” or the 60 second commercial is basically your introduction to someone in any professional networking situation (e.g. a career fair). Here’s what you should cover in those 60 seconds: Who you are (name, major, class year) Relevant work experience Relevant extracurricular activities/accomplishments What type of job you are looking for/interest in the company Leading question about the company, position, next steps If appropriate, when you’re ending the conversation, make sure to give them your resume, thank them, ask for business card, and ask about next steps. Practicing Your Pitch Imagine yourself in an elevator going to the 75 th floor of a high rise in New York City. On the 42 nd floor the CEO of a top notch organization in your field gets on. In the next 2-3 minutes you have the chance to impress him/her and make a convincing argument that you would be a good fit for a position within the organization. Where do you begin (after the handshake)?
