Talking Points and Listening Points | The Job Whisperer
Everyone has heard of an elevator speech. That’s the imagined scenario where you get on an elevator with your prospective employer (or if you are an entrepreneur, your prospective angel investor or lender) and make your powerful and concise case for what you hope will be a brighter future for you or your fledgling enterprise.
Whether you call what you say your elevator speech or your talking points, remember that conversations often lead to relationships, though speeches may lead to applause. I’d rather have a friendship than a standing ovation anytime.
