TalentPitch gives you a HUGE leg up in securing your desired interview. How? By giving you up to one full minute to share with prospective employers or recruiters WHO you are and WHY you would be a great hire….using our built in video recorder.
Okay, now that you are ready to start…let’s give you some tips on how to make the best presentation.
What to say
Key Points to cover in your video introduction:
- Keep it under one minute.
- Keep it relevant to your audience / industry. What would the viewer like to see – or not see from you.
- Don’t just read your resume. Talk about what kind of an employee your going to be. Talk about your motivators. Talk about your values. Talk about what you can do for their business
- Dress appropriately.
- Talk slowly and clearly.
How to Dress (Women)
You will make an impression witin the first five seconds of your TalentPitch video – so it’s important to make the right one. The guidelines given here are commonly accepted as appropriate for interviewing. Every company has a different dress code; how you dress at the job may have very little to do with how you dress for your TalentPitch.
How to Dress (Men)
The rule here is to dress one step above those already employed at the business. You can’t go wrong and you’ll come across very professional. The key here is to evaluate the opportunities that you are pursuing…and dress accordingly.
