Interviews can feel intimidating, but they are a chance for job seekers to share their strengths and open thoughtful conversations with potential employers. Discover how to effectively communicate your value to help you land your next role.
Job seekers need to be prepared to share their value in any situation. A 10-second introduction lets others know who you are and what you do in a succinct, memorable way. At Southlake Focus Group, you’ll learn how to define your value—your brand—and leave any audience wanting to learn more.
Try this format for your 10-second introduction:
What You Do – Be sure to include the job title you’re after.
Your Brand – Give a brief statement or phrase about the value you bring.
