JOB OF THE WEEK: JAVA DEVELOPER AT IPPON TECHNOLOGIES USA
France-based Ippon Technologies needs 15 java developers for its new delivery center in Richmond. Candidates must have a degree in computer engineering.

When it comes to hunting for a job, how do you make the proper elevator pitch? That's what we call it, even though encounters with a potential employer can happen anywhere. You basically have 30 seconds to make a meaningful impression. John Korusek from the Chesterfield Resource Workforce Center breaks down what you should say in that short amount of time:

"The elevator pitch should include your name, your recent relevant skills, and how these skills can set you apart from every other job seeker that's out there," Korusek said. "Job seekers need to be sure that they know their audience, that they're making good eye contact, that they have a firm handshake, and also they want to practice, practice, practice."
