Kick off your week with Monday Motivation!

Tip of the week

When networking, you will have little time to make a good first impression. Therefore, practice talking about yourself as a professional. In other words, create a pitch for yourself! First, introduce yourself, then explain what you do. Above all, tell a story. Use real-life examples that explain why you’re so great! Keep it concise, because you’ll want to say it all within 30 seconds. It will be difficult at first, but practicing out loud will help. Hint: it’s all about the keywords you’ll use, rather than speaking as fast as you can. In short, practice makes perfect.
