Program Description

When it comes to engaging businesses for internships and employment opportunities, employers want to know what’s in it for them, but how do you create a win-win partnership? Your initial pitch to an employer is the 1st step! This interactive workshop will help practitioners define and market the value-add of their services to employers, learn the five steps to making a successful pitch, and overcome employer resistance. Workshop attendees will have the opportunity to refine and practice their pitches, “speed dating” style, with colleagues in the field.

Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Develop a clear and succinct pitch that responds to employer needs;
  • Understand that what you say and how you say it can overcome employer resistance to hiring young people; and
  • Learn effective strategies to engage employers and maximize end results.

Intended Audience

Account Managers, Business Development Managers, Employment Specialists, Internship Coordinators, Job Developers, and Work Readiness Instructors
