“So, what do YOU do?”

It’s a common question, the answer to which we often don’t give much thought to.

But if you are studying, job hunting, looking for new career opportunities or building your own brand, having an effective, prepared answer – by way of an elevator pitch – could be just the thing that gets you that big breakthrough.

Imagine if you had a 40-60 second prepared speech that showed your passion and your best qualities, and made your listener think “Wow, I would hire this person!”, or “I wanna help this person because they are awesome!”

I’m very excited to have Andrew back on the show, you may remember him from Episode 23. If you enjoyed this episode, be sure to tweet Andrew to tell him so!

As the owner of a young, fun and innovative company, he receives a LOT of requests from people looking for jobs. I was keen to pick his brain about what it would take to get HIS attention and stand out from the hoards of other job seekers. [Read more…]
