Career Quick Tip, Networking: The Elevator Pitch

This 30-second spiel should explain some specifics about who you are (professionally), what you are working on or are interested in and what you offer that can benefit whomever you are talking to. Start with a basic pitch that addresses the first two points, and really ask yourself “so what?” to get at why they should get to know you and why you want to get to know them. When possible, cater to the third point to show how you can benefit them. You’ll want to practice this pitch so it sounds like you, and so you can share it with others at a moment’s notice. You never know when you’ll meet someone who is interested in knowing you more!
