My Elevator Pitch Example

“Hello, my name is Tyler. I’m a senior at the University of Wisconsin completing a degree in Business Administration with an emphasis in Management and a minor Accounting.

I’m interested in a career in the finance industry by either helping individuals manage their personal finances or managing company’s finances.

During my college career, I have developed skills in how to manage businesses and people, how to construct and diagnosis financial statements, and different techniques to value companies, securities, and other investments. I follow the markets intently and I’m an active trader myself.

I also completed an internship as a financial advisor with Northwestern Mutual where I called upon and set up meetings with potential clients to explain to them our products, I signed on new clients and provided guidance to them by helping them construct and implement long-term financial plans. During this internship, I discovered that I really enjoy working in the finance field and helping other’s with their finances.

I would really enjoy the opportunity to sit down and talk with you, to find out more about yourself, your organization, and what you expect out of people in your company.”
