Tips For Preparing A Elevator Pitch

Interviews are perfect occasions for the elevator pitch to work. This is significant particularly when the candidate faces the famous question of ‘explain yourself’. During such instances, elevator pitches help the candidate gain confidence in introducing him to company representatives.
For not missing the decisive opportunity, here are some tips on preparing an ideal elevator pitch.

Tips to follow while preparing the ideal elevator pitch

Noting down points on a paper strip:

The candidate is best advised to write the plans down on a piece of paper to find out the relevant matter to be included and those to be excluded. Editing must be done carefully. Unnecessary data must be removed and focus must be on presenting oneself professionally and effectively for those that have very little time.

A Solution for All Questions:

The pitch prepared by the candidate should simply mention who he is, what he does and what he was looking for. All such questions must be answered by a good elevator pitch..

A Professional Tone is Ideal:

For presenting the candidate’s best self to the recruiter in front, the achievements and goals comprised in the pitch by the candidate must talk about themselves. Bragging could prove to be negative as regards to effect on the listener. But hesitation or lengthy talking for getting to the point must also be avoided as such moves could spoil the pitch’s purpose.

Therefore, the candidate preparing the pitch should ensure that the pitch sounded he would be a massive asset to the listener’s organization.

To quote Saint Basil

First and foremost, the monk should own nothing in this world, but he should have as his possessions solitude of the body, modesty of bearing, a modulated tone of voice, and a well-ordered manner of speech. He should be without anxiety as to his food and drink, and should eat in silence

Speaking Too Fast:

There definitely is the dilemma of presenting all his achievements, in short sentences for the candidate. Still, the candidate is advised not to cram information worth a minute or two into a thirty-second slot. Here speaking coherently in full sentences is a wise thing.
Being Robotic: The candidate needs to understand that frowning and using monotone are hardly part of being professional. A smile and being sincere are welcome additions always.

Career trends: The important skills you’ll need for Job

Demographics, cultural trends, and new technologies are rapidly changing the job market.

People are living much longer than we used to. New technologies and automation are rapidly replacing repetitive jobs. New communication tools are eliminating formerly popular mediums for disseminating information (good-bye printed newspapers) at the same time as requiring more advanced media literacy skills for most new jobs.

After researching job market shifts for a recent Thinkopolis labour report, we’ve taken a closer look at how to choose education and training for the job market of the next five to ten years.

Key take-aways

  • When it comes to landing a job, digital literacy is the new literacy
  • Eight jobs that will always be in demand
  • Where the jobs will (and won’t) be created over the next five to ten years
  • Communications, tech savvy, and constant learning will be required for jobs in all fields

Technology

On the bright side of jobs being replaced by technology is that this means a boost in technology-related career options. Every new form of automation or robotics requires engineers and technicians to develop and maintain.

The move from desktops and laptop to smart phones and tablets has created a current high demand for application developers and designers. So while we can’t predict exactly where technology will be at in 2020, but we can advise people to keep up with the latest trends and tools of their time.

Healthcare

The aging population will continue to require more workers in a wide range of medical professions. Doctors, obviously, will be in demand, but also Nurses, Healthcare Managers and Technicians, Pharmacists, Care-givers and Elder-care Coordinators.

A mixture of healthcare and technology education would be a powerful combination. Biomedical engineering is expected to be one of the hottest fields over the coming decade.

Alternately, learning both healthcare and business management skills could also lead to numerous career paths in hospitals, clinics, private care institutions and public health departments.

Business and Finance

Businesses will continue to seek new ways attract customers and understand market trends. Data analysts, and market researchers will continue to be hot career paths for the foreseeable future.

Skilled sales people are always in demand. When making financial decisions, many people still like to talk to a human being and shake someone’s hand. That can’t be automated. For that same reason, financial advisors and financial services jobs will continue to be secure options.
