Elevator Pitch, Resume and Cover Letter - The Easy Way for Students

You’ve worked so hard for an advanced degree from an exceptional school. Why aren’t you getting more traction in your job search? Most of us begin with job descriptions and try to fit our experience to meet them. What if you could start with you…and what you want. From there, it’s so much easier to express what you can do for an organization. And THAT, makes people listen. With 10 years coaching hundreds of high-achieving women, and two decades working in sales and marketing at the world’s largest beauty multi-nationals, Claire Steichen knows how to help people sell themselves. Claire has developed the I to the 4th Power* approach. By knowing what you bring to the table and how organizations work, you can express your contribution confidently and naturally. No stress. The Women in Energy program hosted a workshop where participants:

•    Got clear on their “superpower,” what it does for the organization, and how to leverage it
•    Understood their story, then use storytelling techniques to craft it so they get noticed
•    Used a step by step process to convert their story into elevator pitch, resume and cover letter

*I to the 4th Power gains effectiveness from the sequencing of its elements:  Impact, Influence, Initiative and Innovation. Beginning with yourself and working outward, you gain deep self-awareness. You learn to self-manage and communicate effectively. You are more confident in taking initiative and more resilient to the feedback that will make you grow as a leader. You are able to work autonomously to feel ultimate motivation.
