  1. 1. The  7-­‐Day  Job  Search   How  to  find  a  job  in  7  days   Day  2  –  PERFECT  YOUR  PITCH  
  2. 2. “Explain  how  you  will  make  a  difference,     but  do  it  in  an  entertaining  fashion.  Show  off   your  exper>se  in  a  personable  way,  highlight   your  experience  and  your  strengths,  and   ground  your  idea  with  simple,  realis>c   messages.  Do  not  use  jargon.  Most   importantly,  pitch  quickly.”        ~Richard  Branson            Entrepreneur  
  3. 3. MichaelPeggs.com   30-­‐secod  snapshot  of  who  you  are,  what  you   do  and  why  you’re  the  perfect  candidate   Elevator  Pitch:  
  4. 4. MichaelPeggs.com   Your  Audience   Your  Talk   Yourself   KNOW…  
  5. 5. MichaelPeggs.com   Know  Your  Audience   Modify  your  pitch   to  the  interest  and   exper>se  of  the   listener.     Recruiters  are  the   gatekeepers  and   their  job  is  to   iden>fy  talent   Hiring  Managers   want  to  establish   your  ability  to  do   the  role   Who  are  the  decision  makers?   What  problem  do  they  have?   How  do  I  embody  the  solu>on?  
  6. 6. MichaelPeggs.com   Know  Your  Talk   Qualifier  QuesKon     Target  the  right   person  with  the  right   message.  Before  you   begin,  ask  your   listener  ques>ons.     Tell  A  Story     Our  minds  are  essen>ally   "associate  machines,"   which  means  we   remember  things  beZer   when  there's  a  story  or   associa>on  aZached  to   the  subject.     Call  To  AcKon     Conclude  by   handing  the  listener   a  business  card  and   making  a  targeted   request,  “Can  we   grab  lunch?”  or   “Can  I  send  you  my   resume?”    
  7. 7. MichaelPeggs.com   Know  Yourself   Interests   Professional pursuits that align with the work environment and tasks to create greater success and satisfaction.   Values   A  set  of  standards  that   determine  a]tudes,   choices,  and  ac>on  on   the  job.       Skills   Competencies that are transferable to many different work settings.  
  8. 8. MichaelPeggs.com   Sample  Corporate  Pitch   75%  of  Fortune  500   companies  use  social  media   ineffec>vely.  I  show  big   brands  how  to  grow  their   online  audience  and  build   customer  loyalty.      
  9. 9. MichaelPeggs.com   Sample  Cocktail  Party  Pitch   Do  you  remember  15  years  ago  when  brand   adver>sing  was  all  about  billboards  and  TV?   Facebook  and  TwiZer  have  created  a  digital   landscape  that  no  one  understands,  but  I  get   it.  That’s  what  I  do.    I  teach  companies  how  to   adver>se  in  a  digital  age.    
  10. 10. MichaelPeggs.com   Sample  Casual  Pitch   I  recently  read  an  ar>cle  men>oning   Facebook  adds  almost  1,000,00  users/day.   Brands  without  an  online  presence  are   missing  out.  In  fact,  one  of  my  clients   increased  their  sales  by  30%  aeer  we   created  a  social  strategy.    How  is  your   company  thinking  about  social?
