UW-Whitewater Campus-Wide Perfect Pitch Competition
This is a skill that every marketing professional needs to develop. While not truly a sales-specific role-play, the Perfect Pitch competition is a 90 second pitch in which the contestant positions themself as being "right for the job." Each contestant imagines that they unexpectedly just met their potential employer and wants to take things farther in the hiring process. Like an elevator pitch competition, the goal is to provide 2-3 key selling points for why you are an ideal candidate and then support these qualifications with examples. And of course, the end goal is to get hired (close the deal).
This competition was open to all students at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater. Our 1st place winner was Karlee Nimmer and 2nd place went to Ryan Venti.
