Industry Networking



Join us in our major networking event where engineers share their experiences and knowledge. EWI allows students and employers to connect on a personal level over dinner. It is futile to network and understand the current qualifications and characteristics companies are seeking. With the right preparation and mentality, attending Evening with Industry could land you a great mentor and quite possibly an internship/job. Sign up with the link below!

Creating an Elevator Pitch about Yourself for Industry Professionals:

What is an Elevator Pitch? An elevator pitch is a short, persuasive speech that you use to succinctly spark interest to the listener. You can also use them to create interest in a project, idea, or product – or in yourself. A good elevator pitch should last no longer than a short elevator ride of 20 to 30 seconds, hence the name.

  • Identify Your Audience: Start by thinking about the objectives of company you would pitch to and the type of position you hope to receive at the company.

  • Explain What You Do: Start your pitch by describing who you are and what you currently do. Then describe your least greatest achievements and work your way towards talking about greatest ones. Focus on the experiences you learned from or the problems you have solved. Lastly, always end with a form of appreciation.
