Remote work and self-promotion

Remote work and self-promotion

We have all noticed that one person that likes to promote themselves and appears to be really obnoxious. But in the remote workplace, we're losing the tools we normally use for demonstrating our capabilities. Boasting to your boss and colleagues may be necessary to get recognition.

Voicing your own achievements can feel uncomfortable, but not doing it can have a negative impact on your career.

How to brag about yourself

Use three pillars to brag about yourself:

  • Proud: Acknowledge what you've done and be proud of it.
  • Loud: This is about repetition and consistency.
  • Strategic: Share information where your audience will be. If you want a raise, know who is in charge and consider how they can learn about your wins.

Self-promotion: Don't insult yourself

Your self-promotion should be net positive. Don't verbally undercut yourself.

Don't add things like 'shameless plug' or 'shameless self-promotion' on your brag posts. That is insulting yourself. Instead, add, 'I'd be grateful if you read or share this.'

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
