  • Be convincing in your posture, voice, message and presentation– this is also good practice for an in-person interview

  • You can upload a single video, and, with the help of a friend, create a quality recording and place it on our platform

An elevator pitch is a short, informative and concise overview of an idea for a service or a product, and can be understood as an elevator presentation“. In the past young career-minded salespeople used the duration of an elevator ride, to convince their superiors of their projects. The superiors can then evaluate the quality of an idea and the founding team member often based on the quality of the elevator pitches so as to weed out poor ideas quickly. We believe this formula is very appropriate for the online labour market; because there are so many candidates, anything that quickens the pace and makes the job easier for employers is a plus!
