Introduce yourself to your classmates and the instructor by creating an elevator speech. This is an excellent way to convey your skills while networking and seeking employment. Typically, an elevator speech is a one-minute summary of who you are, why you are qualified, and what you have to offer the organization or industry. Creating this brief sales pitch will help better prepare you to discuss your career goals whenever the opportunity presents itself. This type of interaction might occur at a networking event, during a job interview, or within a social setting such as a party or a ride in an elevator. It is recommended that you also review the Elevator Pitch, How to Craft an Elevator Pitch (Links to an external site.) and the 30 Second Elevator Pitch and Professional Summaries (Links to an external site.) online resources. Consider the person in your field who you would most like the opportunity to approach. Keep this person in mind throughout the process. It is important to discuss your specific areas of expertise in learning and cognition and how they could be applied to benefit the organization or industry and your future success is this field. Briefly explain any theoretical perspectives that apply to these areas. Then for your introduction to this class, create a script of your speech. Your initial post must be a minimum of 300 words.
