I've been job hunting for months and I'm at the point where my strategy lies somewhere between assaulting a person until I get the job and dropping on my knees to grovel in tears. Or some combination of the two.
Today I've been spending time working on my cover letter and it reminded me of the elevator pitch. A couple years back, I was in a Starbucks with my two cousins (who are brothers). After the older brother explained to the younger what the elevator pitch was, the younger brother decided to give it a try. Silence. We all start laughing as he tries to work up a second attempt, which never came.
I was thinking of approaching the cover letter as an elevator pitch: something to jump off the page and explain under pressure why I should be hired. As is my want when I'm experiencing fatigue, I thought I'd share this experience with you guys.
Do you have any good elevator pitch stories about getting hired, making a sale, getting into a school, or even getting a date?
