Get Real-Time Feedback on Your 30-Second Introduction
Your 30-second introduction – or “elevator pitch” – is a brief statement describing who you are and what you do. Much like a brand statement, your 30-second introduction can set you apart from other individuals, so that you become someone people remember. In order to generate interest and conversation, you need to “hook” the listener – in less than a minute. In this session that includes live feedback, you will begin to increase your comfort level in talking about yourself and practice delivering your 30-second introduction – clearly, concisely, and unforgettably!
What is Kick-Off Monday: Kick-Off Monday is a motivational, educational, and networking program designed to help you prepare for the week ahead, sharing conversation, contacts, and job-search information in a relaxed, friendly environment. It is a “place to go” to focus on your job search or career transition and network with others. Sessions are free and LIVE in-person at the TampaBay-Job-Links office of Gulf Coast JFCS. Registration is required.
