When searching for a new job, your main goal should be to sell yourself and your abilities. The right sales pitch can convince an employer that you’re the candidate they need to hire. Here are some tips to help you successfully craft a pitch for a job.
- Remember what the thesis of any job pitch should be: How can you help the company or organization meet its goals?
- Start by coming up with a headline. Imagine you’re writing a tweet about yourself. Restricting your headline to 140 characters gets you in the habit of being precise and grabbing the listener’s attention immediately.
- Choose three sub-topics or supporting messages for your pitch. These should be three specific ways in which you plan to help the company, or three specific qualities you possess that make you the best candidate for the job.
- Under each of your three sub-topics, come up with one supporting story or statistic to prove you point. For example, if your sub-topic is that you can help the business add new clients, share how you brought on 20 new clients in your last position.
