What do you want to do with your life?

Bloomberg recently published an article on best practices around answering that important question. The summer is a great time to work on your elevator pitch and practice with family and friends. Your social calendar fills up as it gets warmer outside and you never know who you’ll meet while out on the town.

The author suggests this: “First, try to answer the question quickly, but not in a way that makes you seem indifferent or uninterested. Second, be ready to deliver a two-sentence summary that will give people an idea of who you are, what you’re interested in, and what you’ve done in the past.”

The CMC has created a framework for your pitch. If you have additional questions, please contact us to speak with a career specialist.
