One of the most essential things you need as an IT job seeker is an elevator pitch. This tool is used constantly wherever you go. A job seeker never knows when they will meet an IT recruiter or hiring manager who can help connect them with that perfect IT job.
During IT job fairs and interviews a job seeker may be asked to quickly tell IT recruiters or hiring managers about themselves. By having prepared you pitch with all the IT experience you have beforehand, you will be calm and not have to stress about what you may say. Your impression on the hiring manager would be seamless.
Elevator pitches should be short and concise hitting all of your major selling points. Who you are, your past success and why you’re a fit for the particular IT job or organization. Most importantly, sell yourself.
So the next time you have some free time on your hands, make sure to work on your pitch to help you land that perfect IT job.
