Elevator Speech l CareerOneStop

Elevator Speech l CareerOneStop



It's been a while seen I blogged. I was on careeronestop.com and I find out about something called an elevator speech. According to the website, this type of speech is "a two minute description of you skills and career goals." This is something you and I can use in a networking event in your chosen field. This is an example of an elevator speech:



"Hi. My name is ____________.  
I'm looking for  (  a kind  of job  )  in (  an industry, field, or location   ).   
I really enjoy  (   something about a past job or experience    )  .  
I'm good at a certain job skill   )."
After you’ve briefly stated these facts, you can ask for help or advice. For example:
  • "Do you have any advice for me?"
  • "Do you know anything about this company?"
  • "Do you know anyone who does know about ______________?"
  • "Can I use your name to contact them?

Black History Month (Red, Black and Green)

Even it is Black History Month, I want to share a poem a with you. This poem is called Red, Black and Green. This work is based on the Pan-African flag. This flag was adopted in the United Negro Improvement Association or the UNIA in 1920. Each color has its own representation. Here is what I think each color represents. My poem is found below. Happy reading!

Red: the color of passion, the color of excitement, the color of love, the color of beauty, the color of courage, the color of the blood that was shed by my ancestors and what binds us together as a human race
Black: the color of power, the color of strength, the color of elegance, the color of rebellion, the color of individuality, the color of style, the color of sophistication, the color of Nubian people from the Motherland
Green: the color of hope, the color of life, the color of harmony, the color of generosity, the color of renewal, the color of tranquility, the color of peace, the color of the plentiful natural treasure of Africa

These three colors unite together in the tapestry that brings the representation of the pride of all Africans and African Americans.

Have we not learned anything at all?!

I thought we moved beyond the one-drop rule.
I thought we moved beyond the paper bag test.
I thought we moved beyond having combs at the doors of a church.
#teamlightskin
#teamdarkskin
Don’t you realize that this was a system used to divide, conquer and destroy an entire people?
It’s bad enough when other people judge us by the tints and shades of our skin

But, it even worse we do it to ourselves.

I've Been Thinking

Lately. I have been doing a lot of thinking. Maybe it's time for me to move out of Conyers, Georgia and live on my own. Even though I have been living for five months, I feel limited and stifled. I think that Atlanta, Georgia might have more opportunity for me. There are some places in the community that can help me out with obtaining employment, housing, financial assistance, food stamps, and disability. The thing is I have a form of autism.

The New Year Agenda

It's now the first day of the new year and there is a lot that need to be done. I have medical physical coming up so I need to prepare for that. That means I would have to not eat any solid food and drink a lot of water the night before. So far with my freelance writing, I have a potential client I met at odesk.com and still setting up my elance.com profile. The job search for me, however, has being slow coming evening I put in 5-6 job applications. But like what I always say, "Some progress is better than no progress." I need to go to a nearby career center that could help me out with the job search.
