Advancing Your Career A Woman's Guide to the Art of Self Promotion
Recently I explored this topic with Wendy Gelberg, colleague extraordinaire - always willing to share resources and expertise.
Wendy is a certified career coach and resume writer and author of The Successful Introvert: How to Enhance Your Job Search and Advance Your Career. She specializes in advising people in the area of self-promotion. Wendy suggests that letting others know what we've achieved can help them. This reframes what we are doing from bragging to helping maintain the community. Other people have needs that we can fill. They can benefit from our knowledge, our expertise, what we've accomplished and how we did it. For example, Wendy would never tell me that she is becoming an expert on how to use Twitter to help brand and market herself. Instead, she offers to help me and shares her expertise. I return the volley with helpful hints I'm discovering. When I meet someone who is looking for help in this arena, I refer them to Wendy as an expert. She has succeeded in tooting her horn without bragging.
