30 Second Commercial

Before we address the parts and what makes up a successful commercial, the first rule of thumb is - Practice Yes, but don't memorizes this word for word - too many get caught up and choke which is diminishing from the best first impression they could have made. remember you have only one time and one chance to give a first impression.

A 30 second commercial -

 

Is many things first of all it is your first impression that you give to a prospective employers - It gives insight into your abilities to communicate your ideas clearly and concisely.  

*     It is your tool to express an overview of your experience. It includes your skills, strengths, accomplishments

       and goals while networking or in an interviewing when asked “Tell me about yourself.”

*     Your commercial will change throughout your professional life. 

*      Your commercial should include

                An introduce of yourself, if appropriate.

                Your career direction

                State your experience. military, civilian, volunteer and academic.

                Give your strengths or skills in which apply and pertinent.

                Possibly give an accomplishment that proves you have these abilities

 

Keep it on point and never embellish beyond your abilities -

                Your commercial allows you to stand out from everyone else.

                Choose your words wisely and always keep on point

 

Stop - when you are done. A conversation is made up of two parts listening to one part speaking. If you are talking how can you be listening

Your time spent listening time will give you breath and time to prepared to answer the follow-up questions, you have been practicing

As you create your own think about

What is your career goal, What skill, strength, or experiences, What are your accomplishments that proves you have that skill, strength, or experience.
