Women in Energy Leadership Development Workshop: Elevator Pitch, Resume & Cover Letter (for Students)

Past Event

April 16, 2019

4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Elevator Pitch, Resume and Cover Letter – The Easy Way for Students This workshop was originally scheduled for March 28 but was postponed to April 16. Those who registered for the March 28 meeting and wish to attend the April 16 session must re-register. You’ve worked so hard for an advanced degree from an exceptional school. Why aren’t you getting more traction in your job search? Most of us begin with job descriptions and try to fit our experience to meet them. What if you could start with you and what you want. From there, it’s so much easier to express what you can do for an organization. And THAT, makes people listen. With 10 years coaching hundreds of high-achieving women, and two decades working in sales and marketing at the world’s largest beauty multi-nationals, Claire Steichen knows how to help people sell themselves. Claire has developed the I to the 4th Power approach. By knowing what you bring to the table and how organizations work, you can express your contribution confidently and naturally. No stress. Join the Women in Energy program in this workshop where you will: •    Get clear on your “superpower,” what it does for the organization, and how to leverage it •    Understand your story, then use storytelling techniques to craft it so you get noticed •    Use a step by step process to convert your story into elevator pitch, resume and cover letter I to the 4th Power gains effectiveness from the sequencing of its elements:  Impact, Influence, Initiative and Innovation. Beginning with yourself and working outward, you gain deep self-awareness. You learn to self-manage and communicate effectively. You are more confident in taking initiative and more resilient to the feedback that will make you grow as a leader. You are able to work autonomously to feel ultimate motivation. Registration is required. This event is geared towards current female students. Since space is limited, RSVPs will be accepted on a first-come basis until capacity is reached. A light breakfast will be provided.  For more information contact: [email protected]
