Ever wonder exactly what it takes to “sell yourself” to an employer? In many situations, there is only a small bracket of time to make an impact that can be crucial to getting you a job.
For the modest people who don’t like bragging, there is always room for practice. Back by popular demand, JMU is hosting Speed Networking. This event is an opportunity for students to practice their “60 second elevator speech” that they will use to connect with employers at career-related events. Here is the info:
Wednesday November 10, 4:00pm – 6:30pm
Students will practice that one-minute slot to highlights their strengths to an employer. They will also receive feedback from professionals on how to improve their speech.
RSVP is mandatory on Recruit-A-Duke.
