The Perfect Pitch

Students sit down with alumni to craft their elevator pitches.

On February 25, students and alumni filled Kenney-Herter Auditorium for the school's Global Career Services' annual Perfect Pitch event. Students had the valuable opportunity to receive feedback from alumni on presenting the ‘Perfect Elevator Pitch’ to employers and professionals. They were also able to further build their network by re-connecting with the school’s extensive alumni network.

This year, 40 alumni spanning classes of 1981-2019 and representing 32 employers, sat down with 60 students to provide insights on crafting their pitches in fields such as finance, climate and energy and national security. Some of the companies represented included Deloitte, the Environmental Protection Agency, Marriott International, and the US Department of Commerce to name a few.
