Registration is open now on GTS.

Join Career Advisor and Instructor, Tim Chezar, for an informal clinic to perfect your elevator pitch. An elevator pitch is a perfect way to make a lasting first impression in just under 30 seconds. A key networking tool, your elevator pitch should be a succinct description of your skills, education, and experience. Rather than sounding scripted, you'll need to discuss your expertise in a fluid, natural, and conversational manner. You will use it whenever you meet someone new in a professional context. 

During this clinic, you'll:  

  • Discover the tips and tricks for creating your own elevator pitch. 
  • Practice and receive feedback on your developed elevator pitch. 
  • Learn to make a positive and impactful first impression
