I know it’s hard to believe. You really can stand out from the crowd and make a memorable impression with a recruiter in 30-60 seconds with a well-rehearsed pitch.
Use this simple structure to create your own short authentic story.
1. Intro: Offer your name, a firm handshake, and give them a resume and business card
2. Objective: Why you’re there and what type of job you’re looking for
3. Summary: Briefly summarize education, experience, and interests
4. Closing: Reiterate your interest, thank the employer (get a business card if possible)
Best of luck and be sure to let us know how it went!
