9.) Elevator Pitch
Develop an “Elevator Pitch” so that you can quickly and concisely explain who you are in 30 seconds to an executive. You need to quickly grab their attention and captivate them. The first question anyone will ask you is “Tell me a little about yourself.” This should be short, succinct and grab their attention.
Spend some time developing this. Practice with a friend. Additionally, do mock interviews. This all seems ridiculous at the time, but it will help when you do the real thing.
