As part of Our Story initiative, Jumpstart – Refugee Talent clients learned all about how to craft the perfect elevator pitch in this exciting event.
Being able to tell your story to others while networking in a succinct, strategic manner is key to making a good impression. The perfect elevator pitch can help you stand out to professionals in your field, and give them a sense of what you’re looking for so they can help you advance your career, whether it’s putting you in touch with a hiring manager or telling you about relevant opportunities.
During this event, participants were able to:
- Get tips on speaking with confidence
- Learn more about crafting the perfect elevator pitch
- Hear elevator pitches from fellow refugees
- Receive expert guidance on your own elevator pitch
