Elevator Interview
It’s a contest that really has its ups and its downs! USF’s College of Business recently held its annual Elevator Interview Competition, where students take a short ride with a prospective employer—but they only have one minute to make a good impression. University Beat on WUSF TV takes you there.

Elevator Interview

It’s a nerve-wracking moment: that brief chance a jobseeker has to impress a recruiter and get an elusive interview. USF Business students recently took part in a contest where they had sixty seconds—the length of an elevator ride in one of Tampa’s tallest buildings—to see who had the best self-pitch. University Beat on WUSF 89.7 has a recap.
