With hundreds of eager job seekers attending the Urban League of Philadelphia job fair, you will most likely have ~30 seconds to catch the attention of a hiring rep and make a lasting impression!

Make sure to “wow!” them with an expertly crafted Elevator Pitch. The goal of this pitch is to communicate

  • Who you are
  • What you do
  • What your goals are
  • Why you would be an asset to their team

Use vibrant and colorful vocabulary to help paint an authentic picture of who you are professionally. Don't forget to smile and make eye contact!

Leading up to the job fair, be sure to practice your elevator pitch! Grab a family member, friend, coworker, pet or anyone else willing to listen and give it a go. Be sure to ask for feedback :)

What does YOUR elevator pitch sound like?! Comment below!

This is true it goes by so fast! I always practice before I go into an interview or anything like that to make sure I know what I am going to say.

Usually, I just say who I am and what I do but in a confident way. Thanks for the tips.
