To “sell yourself” in a job search, you need to talk to people about how you can help an employer in a compelling way.  Having a concise, engaging, well-rehearsed “two minute pitch” makes you look top-notch, and enables an employer or networking contact to clearly understand what you can do!  In this class, we’ll review how to create a great pitch.  Then up to 30 participants will actually get to construct their pitch, and practice it in front of the class, gaining valuable feedback immediately afterwards from the coach, and anonymously from the class (via submitted evaluations).

Optional pre-work (this is not required): View Rob Hellmann's recorded webinar: “Resume and Pitch Intensive”. After listening to the webinar, take a shot at writing your Two Minute Pitch.
