The elevator pitch is a way for you to briefly talk about who you are and what you offer a potential employer, that is, what skills, experience, and knowledge do you have that the employer needs. Besides determining what you offer you also have to decide on what things you will need in your next job and how to talk about the reason why you are looking for a job. Come to WIND East on Tuesday, Feb. 28, 2017 and find out what you need to do to make your pitch worth listening to.
