But I Don’t Like to Talk About Myself!

But I Don’t Like to Talk About Myself!

Networking can be difficult.  We get that.  Next week we will offer students an opportunity to practice networking during our “So You Think YOU Can Network?”   Networking can be frustrating because you don’t know what to share with a professional.  On top of that, you’re supposed to introduce yourself through the use of a elevator pitch- a 20-30 second statement all about you without using um, uh, or like.  This article from Careerealism is particularly relevant because it addresses your elevator speech and gives you direction on where to start.  And of course, you can find other networking resources on our website under Guides and Tip Sheets as well as our CareerSpot videos.  To get started, read through the scenario in this article.  If you were Chris, what else would you have considered sharing?  Now, put yourself in Chris’s shoes.  What would YOU say about YOU?
