What does "marketing yourself" really mean? What are the benefits of marketing yourself as a competent resource both inside and outside your organization? What steps do you take to market yourself? And why do you need an “Elevator Pitch?”
Why Is Having an Elevator Pitch So Important?
You only have 30-60 seconds to make a powerful first impression. The attention span of the average person is just 30 seconds before their mind starts wandering. The other reason is people have less time today. You need to grab them quickly or lose them forever
The next step is to develop a presentation 'package' that will serve as your marketing tools to reach your occupational goals.
Presenting yourself well to employers means:
- On paper through applications and resumes;
- Verbally during interviews; and
- Visually by dressing appropriate to the setting and industry.
In the workshop below, we will cover these important topics that will help assist you in finding your next job!
