60-second 'Me' Elevator Pitch

Today at orientation, we practiced a lot of our "job finding" skills: resumes, elevator statements, and interviews.

There was some fantastic advice handed out. I'm pretty sure I'll be talking about resumes in the future, so I just wanted to quickly jot down a good summary of Elevator Speeches when you're trying to get a recruiter to show interest in you for an internship / job.

You tell them:
What is Special about you?
What is Special about them?
How do the 2 connect?

Be confident but not arrogant. Its a great idea to show them you know about their company and like the idea of working with them (not just working with someone)
