The One Minute Pitch

Are you ready to quickly and clearly introduce yourself to a stranger?  Not just your name and major, but your business self: the details of who you are, what you do, and what you want. 

The prepared "elevator speech" or one-minute pitch has long been standard practice for business people, and now job-hunters are creating videotaped versions, sometimes called a video resume, to take the place of a boring, printed cover letter.

Dr. Patrick Langan, a friend of UNIBusiness with twenty years of recruiting and organizational development experience, spoke to the Level II participants last week.  We've uploaded his examples and hints, including a link for the latest twist: a QR code on the back of your business card that takes a recruiter to a video of your one-minute pitch.  Check it all out at the PRP Website.
