The Elevator Pitch Competition is a solo competition where students will have the opportunity to present themselves in an elevator-pitch format to a panel of judges. The panel will choose the best pitches and prizes will be awarded to the top three student presenters.
What is an Elevator Pitch? This is the 30-60 second business description of who you are and why someone would want to hire you. It's called an "Elevator Pitch" because it describes the challenge: "How would you explain your skills and experience if fate placed you in an elevator with the CEO of your dream job and you only had the time it takes to get from the top of the building to the bottom?"
This competition will bring together students from across the college to compete in this 3 round competition which will include
Round 1- 150 individual pitches will be recorded and uploaded for judges to view
