Where to brag about yourself
MORE IDEAS FROM THE ARTICLE
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.
Use three pillars to brag about 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.'
As you’re doing your research, you’ll likely come up with a range that represents your market value. It can be tempting to ask for something in the middle of the range, but instead you should ask for something toward the top.
Many of us can feel underestimated. You're excellent at work, but you may not be paid your worth, or your potential is not acknowledged. Your parents can't believe you made the dean's List. Some of your friends are surprised when you meet someone great.
These messages can be painful. When people underestimate us, they hold negative assumptions that can make us question our own abilities.
