Elevator Talk

In the job search process you will have very brief, yet critical, opportunities to convey your work to others. We will spend some time at the workshop discussing these opportunities. In preparation for that session, we are asking you to draft a BRIEF introduction to yourself and your research. Your goal is to convey the nature and significance of your work to a scientist (but not necessarily a geoscientist). To keep this description sufficiently brief, it may help you to think about what you could say in the time it takes to ride an elevator to the top floor of a tall building. (More than one page is definitely too long.)
