Last week, we asked on our LinkedIn "Are You Confident In Your Elevator Pitch?" Surprisingly, 68% answered "No" or "Sometimes". We all want to make a great first impression when interviewing, and likely you'll be asked, "Tell Me About Yourself."
Follow this outline to give a concise response - Present, Past, Future.
PRESENT: Start out by talking about your current role... highlighting responsibilities that are similar and the impact you have made, outcomes, ROI, etc. Be sure to let your personality shine through and let them know what you are passionate about and why you enjoy your work!
PAST: The hiring manager has your resume in front of them, so you don't need to go through all positions and skills. Highlight specific accomplishments with quantifiable examples. Fill in some of the gaps that may not be on your resume (such as a career break or change).
FUTURE: Explain your WHY. Why are you interested in this specific position? Why do you think this company would be a good fit for you? How does this position align with your professional goals?
