Self-Introduction Pitch

Learn how to introduce yourself in interviews.

Pitch structure

When it comes to introducing yourself in a leadership interview, it's crucial to strike the right balance between providing pertinent information and keeping it brief. Your introductory pitch—also called an elevator pitch—should be concise, lasting between 30 to 60 seconds. Avoid the temptation to retell your entire resume; instead, focus on structuring your answer in a way that showcases your qualifications and relates them to the role you're interviewing for.

Introductory pitch structure:

  1. What you do

  2. Your achievements

  3. How your experience is tied to the new role
