Putting together a great 30-second summary of who you are and what you have to offer in the career world is an essential tool that anyone, whether they are actively seeking a job or not, should have in their toolkit. Elevator speeches are so named because they are short speeches that take advantage of opportunities that unexpectedly present themselves during our everyday lives, such as a short ride on an elevator with the company CEO. Elevator speeches are a part of networking, the larger concept of exchanging information with other people to develop contacts with the goal of furthering one's career.
