The Elevator Pitch
Business entrepreneurs call it the elevator pitch - a 30 second, well prepared speech that describes your work (or heart's desire, or sales pitch, etc).
I like this description, found at StartUpNation
You have to convey all the essential information in a clear and concise manner, communicating in a tone that's likeable, passionate and also credible. Since you're completing an individualized major and articulated your program early on, now is a good time to create your own 30 second pitch. When you have the opportunity to share what you're doing, be prepared!
