The Importance of the Elevator Pitch

The Elevator Pitch: An Important Professional Tool

 

Making a career move can be difficult. One of the most common things job seekers struggle with is finding a way to catch the eye of potential employers. Often times, it can feel almost impossible to stand out among a sea of hundreds of other job seekers all looking to get a leg up on the competition. So what is a job seeker to do?

One great way of getting an edge on the competition is crafting a professional ‘Elevator Pitch.’ An elevator pitch is a 30-second personal sales pitch to help spark the interest of a potential employer or organization. Having an elevator pitch at hand is a great tool for standing out among the crowd. From career fairs to networking events, you can use your elevator pitch to both introduce yourself and reveal how your experience and skills could potentially benefit a potential employer.

Writing an Elevator Pitch:

 

 

Regardless of the industry, an elevator pitch is an important professional tool to help job seekers quickly and effectively promote themselves to potential employers. As recruiters, we often times have inside information on what our clients are seeking when hiring management candidates. Therefore, when we work with job seekers, we are dedicated to assisting them identify their own strengths and skills which align with what employers are looking for. Working with a recruiter who specializes in your industry can be a quick and easy step towards crafting an even stronger elevator pitch and fortify your chances of catching the eyes of great employers.
