You’ve got a good looking resume. A beautiful business card. Your LinkedIn is on point. You may even have a gorgeous website.
But what do you have in your toolbox for those all-important networking situations? At a business or community event, at a social gathering with people who could open doors to potential clients–can you describe what you do in a compelling way that makes your listener want to hire you, or refer you to a contact of theirs, immediately?
Most people don’t pay enough attention to their verbal elevator pitch that answers the ubiquitous question, “What do you do?”
- And one of my least favorite words… passionate.
