Elevator Speech in a Job Search – Write your speech (after you have outlined it)

This is the next installment of a multi-part posting discussing the development and use of an elevator speech as used in a job search.

Write your speech.

Now that you have ideas and concepts about yourself to promote (your outline), begin drafting your speech’s initial version. Here are some steps to guide you.

  1. Identify yourself by function.
  2. Statement regarding your value proposition as a professional.
  3. Accomplishment or proof statement that supports your value proposition as a professional.
  4. Call to action in the form of a subtle invitation to have a conversation.
