A best-selling author will offer her advice to Texas A&M business students Friday at Reed Arena.
As the keynote speaker at the Graduate Business Career Management Conference, Robin Ryan will discuss how to best sell oneself to potential employers.
Ryan, a Seattle career counselor, has written “60 Seconds & You’re Hired!,” “Winning Cover Letters,” “Winning Resumés,” “What to Do with the Rest of Your Life,” and “Soaring on Your Strengths.”
Ryan has appeared on Oprah, Dr. Phil, Fox News and CNN, and has been quoted in publications like Newsweek, The Wall Street Journal and USA Today, among others.
"The purpose of the 60 Second Sell is to focus the employer’s attention toward remembering a candidate’s most important attributes. It’s an easy technique to master," Ryan said in a press release. “To create your 60 Second Sell, analyze the job duties the employer wants accomplished, and then select your top five selling points — your strongest abilities to do the job. Link these five points together using a few sentences that can be spoken in 60 seconds. This verbal business card is your 60 Second Sell."
