Complete Your Obsidi Profile:
Ensure you complete your Obsidi profile 100% because employers are looking at it. Rember to upload your resume at least one week before BFUTR so you can shine bright with your skills, experiences, and accomplishments. You never know if a great employer wants to vet you for an in-person interview at BFUTR.

Craft That Killer Elevator Pitch:
You’ve got 60 seconds to shine, so make ’em count! Craft a killer elevator pitch that screams “Black excellence” and sets you apart from the crowd. Prepare a concise and compelling elevator pitch to introduce yourself to new connections. Highlight your skills, interests, and what you hope to gain from attending the summit.

The conference isn’t until October, but why wait until then to make your mark with potential employers and future mentors? Jump on and let the community know you are seeking your next opportunity. Then pull up BFUTR in person to reacquaint yourself with your online community and easily network your way to your next opportunity. 

Claim Your Space:
