  1. Yes, I would be interested in having Elizabeth critique my elevator pitch/LinkedIn profile. I have another meeting next week so I can’t participate on the webinar, but I would like to see the recording.

    Elevator pitch: Uniquely Public Relations: Bridging the Gap Between People & Processes

    LinkedIn profile: http://linkedin.com/in/rekservicepro

  2. My pitch: I am a top-notch environmental engineer, dedicated to being the best generalist available in the field. If I was a doctor, I would try to be the best family doctor you’ve ever met.

  3. Sophie, what does being a doctor have to do with being an engineer, if what you really want to do is be an engineer? Why mix apples with oranges in your elevator pitch? It detracts from the value of what you’re saying. So, I’m interested in public relations but if I’d chosen to be a concert pianist (like when I was young), I’d be great, like who really cares? I wouldn’t say that in an elevator pitch. What’s your point?

  4. Randi: It’s not so much about being an engineer as being a generalist. The pitch has worked well for me, because “generalist” is inherently a vague term but people immediately understand the concept of a good family doctor. It focuses the image of generalist as someone whose work has worth and is often needed — more often than specialist.
