How to: create the perfect 60 second pitch

The 60 second pitch is designed to differentiate you from other candidates and show our business clients compelling reasons why they should meet you on a face-to-face basis. With this in mind, it is crucial that you grab the opportunity to shine.

✓  Always ensure that the background where you are filming your video looks professional, clean, and tidy, so as not to distract focus away from you.
✓  Ensure you use a suitable recording environment: no distractions, no noise interruptions and no colleagues, friends, or family drifting into the background.
✓  Prepare your structure before you embark on the recording. Have a breakdown of:

• who you are
• what you’ve done
• your standout achievement (10 seconds max)
• a final, compelling reason you should be considered as a strong candidate for any role within your marketplace.

Keep your pitch relatively generic so that we can use it to market you to more than one organisation – do not mention a particular or favoured client organization. This should be about the most potent qualities that you have and what makes you stand out from other candidates in the market for the same role-type. Most importantly it needs to sell you in a concise 60-second timeframe.

We suggest recording a few different videos and selecting the one which best meets the above spec and best represents you.
