The 30-Second Pitch

Today’s post written by Jamie Goodpaster, Training Specialist for the Gateway Project

“So…tell me about yourself.” The inevitable start to virtually every job interview. The way you respond to this statement will determine the recruiter/hiring manager’s impression of you for the rest of the interview. A strong 30 Second Pitch or 30 Second Commercial is the best way to pique the recruiter’s interest and develop a strong rapport throughout the interview.

Jewish Vocational Services of San Francisco, through a grant from Cisco Systems Foundation, has developed a series of podcasts addressing common job-seeker issues. This link is to an excellent tutorial on developing a strong 30 Second Pitch.
