Founders who do a good job pitching their startups get millions of dollars from venture capital investors. Job seekers are no different—those who do a good job pitching their ability to create value for companies are the ones winning all the opportunities.

What skills do you bring to the table, and how do you see yourself create value in this role? Bonus points: tell them what you hope to accomplish in the first 30-90 days.
