Which “elevator pitch” do you like better?
A: “Hi! I’m Joshua Steele and I’m a translator for hire. Whether it’s Spanish, German, or Java, I love working with languages to solve people’s problems. That’s what got me out of bed in the morning as an editor, researcher, and communicator. And that’s why I’m a Java web development student at Tech Elevator. I’m investing in myself so that I can be a good investment for your company. I can talk with clients, colleagues, and computers to turn painful problems into profitable solutions. After Tech Elevator, I want to continue learning languages by joining a software development team. I want to work with colleagues and mentors who can help me take my problem-solving communication skills to the next level.”
B: “Hi! I’m Joshua Steele and I’m a pastor-programmer who works with dead languages to help the living! Whether it’s showing a congregation how an ancient text could improve their lives or showing clients how a web application could improve their business, I love solving people’s problems by working with languages that they don’t speak! That’s how I combine an editor’s eye for detail with a pastor’s heart for people. I’m currently a full-stack web development student at Tech Elevator. After I graduate, I want to join a software development team where I can continue to learn digital languages to help improve people’s lives.”
