Pitch Yourself! 📣
There's no better time or place to meet community members AND level up by refining your answer to the age old question: "So tell me about yourself".
We are firm believers that practice makes perfect - many community members (us included) have found that the more practice you have in telling your professional story out loud, the better it gets.
First 5 minutes for folks to roll in (we don’t have a lot of time so try not to join late) ⏱
5 to 7 minutes breakout rooms
You and your partner will each take 1-2 minutes to introduce yourself
Reserve some time to share constructive thoughts on your peer’s pitch
Rinse and repeat!
NOTE: This article is a really good read that I’d suggest at least skimming before hopping on the call. With the take-aways in mind, try to have an idea of what kind of role you’d like to mock pitch in this session. This will help you narrow in on the aspects of your professional story that are most relevant for the particular conversation you’re having.
TIP: Always be positive! Think about your forward trajectory and where you want to go next. Don’t get bogged down in what’s not great about your current role.
