This session provided the key elements that make up a networking pitch that can be used at job fairs, career events and other networking opportunities.  It can also help in an interview that begins with the question, "So tell me about yourself."  Participants had a half hour to work on creating their own 60-second pitch.   

"I am so glad I came! I got so much great advice in terms of how to better my resume and the 60-second elevator pitch. I had an excellent time. The room was full of wisdom." ~Clara Owens, participant and door prize winner

"The feedback was great! Hearing what potential employees think about your first impression and what they look for in future employees was helpful." ~attendee Arrielle Carson.
