An elevator pitch is a short, compelling introduction of who you are and what you do, that can be delivered in 60 seconds or less.
This is an important asset for your job search.
Imagine that you stepped into the elevator and behold, right in front of you, is the CEO of that company you have been dreaming about working for. Just the two of you! And the CEO asks you: “What do you do?” Can you communicate to him who you are, what you do, and how you can contribute to his organization within the time it takes to ride that elevator to his floor?
Job transitions are almost always stressful. Whether the transition is caused by a lay-off, moving into a new position at your existing job, or starting a new job, you will encounter some stressful moments and powerful emotions like anger, frustration, fear and feeling of uncertainty and overwhelm.
While many people would love to change their careers, not many people know what to do or where to start. Indeed, this is one of the reasons why many people remain stuck on jobs they don’t like.
Career or job shift can often be the desirable and rightful thing to do when you no longer feel fulfilled in the job you have, however, I will strongly advise that you plan your move carefully.
Do not leap before you look! You do not want the regret of making the wrong move.
It’s natural to feel nervous about job interviews. But you can use mock interviews to gain confidence and make a better impression on a potential employer.
Mock interview is a stress-free way to explore your strengths and weaknesses in an interview process. It can help you find out which part of an interview process you are good at, and which part you need to work on. I mean, if you’re going to bomb a question, wouldn’t you rather prefer to have it be in a mock interview?
