Elevator Pitches

IMG_4922.jpg

Our first partnership event of the year was incredible. Thank you to our amazing guest speaker, Dr. Ben Voth who gave us a few tips for knowing how to speak to recruiters!! The main takeaways were:

  • Lesson 1 - Maintain Eye Contact

  • Lesson 2 - Don't be afraid to say “I don’t know”. It’s better than making up lies.

  • Lesson 3 - Strong volume. Speak up. Be authoritative.

  • Lesson 4 - Know your “first sentence”. What is your mission? What are YOU about?

  • Lesson 5 - Give examples. Evidence of your opening sentence.

  • Lesson 6 - Be confident. Make other people want to be on your team.

And a big thanks to NSBE for being awesome collaborators - looking forward to more partner events!!
