What is your elevator pitch?
Do you know a lot of people have missed out on opportunities, employments, funding, grants, sales, collaborations etc just because they didn’t have that 6 to 30 seconds speech ready when it mattered most?
Stop selling yourself short by presenting yourself as Mr A who is from B village in C state and work with D or a student of E; Whenever you are asked to say something about yourself.
For students, being a student is not an occupation. You must think of skill and value you can deliver and present yourself in that light. Anyways, that’s a post for another day.
