Me in a Minute

UON's Me in a Minute is about finding your point of difference and pitching it to the world of work.

In this innovative strategy you'll develop a 60 second pitch that explains why you are unique in the labour market. Take a look at the resources we've provided to inspire your own video blog or get support by joining our workshop series run by industry professionals.

Why you should create a pitch

We know that employers are looking for career ready graduates with a unique mix of technical knowledge and character traits, otherwise known as employability skills.  UON’s Me in a Minute is focused on helping you understand how to identify and sell these skills to the employment market.

Your 60 second pitch can be referenced in your job applications, embedded in Linked In profiles and offers a moment of self-reflection to support your career planning.

Demonstrate that you are tech savvy, self-aware and in touch with industry needs by providing employers with evidence that showcases all of this and more.
