Your Elevator Pitch is a brief introduction which helps your audience to get a “quick picture” of what you have to offer. Consider what type of career you are targeting and include relevant skills and competencies gained from a variety of settings - from academics to the workplace.
Whether using your Elevator Pitch when meeting with representatives at a career/job fair, or during an information interview:
Focus on skills and competencies gained from your studies, employment and volunteer experience, your interests and career goals
Be mindful of your body language (e.g., eye contact, smile and handshake)
Practice your Elevator Pitch to ensure it sounds natural - not memorized
