End with your Future (and why you’re FABULOUS)
Don’t forget the closer. You have told me how you have gotten to where you are currently, now tell me where you are going! Focus on your targeted career and tailor this section to fit the job you are pursuing.
Consider answering some of these questions:
What does your dream job look like?
What are your career and life goals?
How can the listener support your goals?
Why are you FABULOUS?
How can the listener contact you in the future?
And please don’t forget to share your contact info! More times than not, I have professionals (typically young professionals) deliver their elevator pitches to me, only to walk away without providing any details on how I can contact them moving forward. Make sure to close the loop and provide info for future connection.
Now, go get your storytelling on!
