Job Development: The Skill of Introducing Yourself and Your Services to Employers | Creating an Elevator Speech
February 16, 2021

Job Development is one of the eight principles of Supported Employment (SE) services. Job development is defined as a set of skills used to develop and build relationships with the business community. It is an important element to providing effective employment supports. Services that incorporate job development have more successful employment outcomes. One key component of job development is introducing yourself and your employment services to potential employers. Many employment specialists prepare for this meeting by creating an elevator speech to use when introducing themselves and practicing how to respond to tough questions from employers.

This product focuses on the creation of an elevator speech, a brief description of your services that is intended to create interest, and, hopefully, further discussion.
