Presenting your skills directly and persuasively is sometimes called a “Me in 30 Seconds” statement or an “elevator speech” It is a simple way to present to someone else a balanced understanding of who you are. It piques the interest of a listener who invites you to “Tell me a little about yourself,” and it provides a brief and compelling answer to the question “Why should I hire you?”
What Should it Include?
We’ll help you craft your “Me in 30 Seconds” statement which should include:
