The Single Most Important Thing You Can Do For Your Career This Weekend!

 

 

Sorry about our weekend tho .... a great time to hunker down and spend 30 minutes on the most important thing to move your career forward in 2019. Your Elevator Pitch!

 

Einstein once said “If you can't explain it to a six year old, you don't understand it yourself." Your Elevator Pitch is no exception and has 3 simple pieces ......

 

1. Who You Are:  This is a very brief overview; "I'm a University of Missouri-Columbia grad and I've been working as multimedia journalist at WXYZ TV since 2014"

 

2. What You've Done/Your Skills: "My ability to develop a story from concept to camera has been recognized as Emmy Award winning and along the way I've built a social media audience of 30k followers."

 

3. Where You Are Going/What's Next: "Having reached my goals of being the lead reporter in ___ (market), I'm ready to expand the scale and scope of my stories to a larger audience, specifically a top 10 market."

 

When you put these three pieces together you have built a simple elevator pitch, an important part of your brand communication.

"I'm a University of Missouri-Columbia grad and I've been working as multimedia journalist at WXYZ TV since 2014.   My ability to develop a story from concept to camera has been recognized as Emmy Award winning and along the way I've built a social media audience of 30k followers.  Having reached my goals of being the lead reporter in ___ (market), I'm ready to expand the scale and scope of my stories to a larger audience, specifically a top 10 market."
