Know Your Elevator Pitch for any Fair!

Prepare a 30-second introduction or elevator pitch to use with employers. Students can practice answering this important question through our Big Interview mock interview platform. You don't want to sound like you are reading a script, but you do want to sound like you thought about why you are there.

An elevator pitch might sound something like, "Hello. I'm Wonda Warrior, a senior in Communications studies with an emphasis on Organizational Communications. My experiences include working as an intern for Health Alliance plan, leading their social media and internal communications strategy. I'm looking for a position related to Social Media Content when I graduate this May. I read on your website that (name of organization) has an entry-level position in your corporate marketing department, and I would really like to learn more about this role."
