Take a cue from the pitching professionals to launch your elevator pitch to the next level.
We are in the middle of Major League Baseball’s spring training. In Florida, new players are trying out for roster and position spots, while existing players are getting in some practice time before the true competition begins.
While I admittedly don’t know a lot about baseball, I am blessed with a family full of men who take this American tradition rather seriously and keep me in the loop. When I think about spring training and baseball season, I immediately recognize its similarities with the job search. There’s a lot of competition, and many talented professionals vying for the same role. It takes a lot of determination, planning and hard work to be a success.
