Pitching is a universal skill and never more important than during a career search— when you’re asked the seemingly simple, yet loaded question, “Tell me about yourself.” You never know when an opportunity will arise so it is important to have your pitch prepared. Please join two HBS career coaches for an interactive session to help you plan and practice how you pitch yourself, your story, and your ideas.
Participants must register by Noon on February 1st to receive details on joining the discussion. The Zoom link will be sent out 24 hours before the event.
Please note that no refunds will be issued.
