Tips for Communicating with Employers:
Practice your pitch! Pitching, explaining who you are and what skills and experiences you have in a concise way is hard enough, but add in the elements of doing it virtual, and it can be extra intimidating. Reflect on your skills: how have you taken advantage of these challenging times to better yourself? What have you learned about how you manage time, change, and adversity? Employers might ask, so be ready...record yourself or conduct a virtual chat with family and friends to practice and get some feedback.
