Strategically Brag! Your Personal Pitch

Developing your personal brand is essential for job seekers, especially when preparing for interviews and career fairs. However, it may feel challenging to communicate your strengths to employers without sounding like you are bragging! In this webinar you'll learn how to develop a brief and effective "elevator pitch" that differentiates you from the competition by highlighting your unique skills and strengths. You can use this pitch as a starting point for conversations at career fairs, and for answering "Tell me about yourself" questions in interviews.
