Elevator Pitch: Tips on How to Land a Job – as developed by Nancy Collamer (Continued)
Refresher: What is an elevator pitch? It’s the most succinct version of you, your skills, and why you’re perfect for the job you’re trying to get. Imagine having to state all of that information in the time it takes to ride on an elevator.
Now let’s go through Nancy Collamer’s nine steps to getting “the perfect pitch”.
Step 7. Practice, practice, practice (then solicit feedback).
This is something that you want to make and sound as perfect as possible. Craft your pitch until it flows easily. Collamer advises: “Keep tweaking your pitch until it no longer sounds rehearsed.”
Once you get to that place, then be brave and bold and try the pitch out on your friends and ask them for feedback.
