12/13 Presentation: Alex Freund - Communicate Who You Are

posted Dec 8, 2017, 6:52 AM by PSGMC Staff
Alex Freund, the Landing Expert, will lead the December 13 meeting of the Professional Support Group of Morris County on from 9:30 am – 12:00 pm, at the Parsippany-Troy Hills Public Library.

Ever feel the hiring manager just “didn't get you”? Do you dread the “tell me about yourself” question? You know yourself. The challenge is how to communicate who you are in a way that differentiates you from your competition quickly and concisely. Fortunately, there are three types of communication that can create important, strategic advantages for you:

1) the “tell me about yourself” question

2) the elevator pitch, and

3) the value proposition. 

Every interaction is an opportunity to position yourself as the only candidate who should be considered. Too often, the “tell me about yourself” and elevator pitch are often viewed as warm-up or insignificant exchanges of pleasantries - a huge mistake!
