How can this help you?

In today’s world, we can’t expect anyone to take care of us, so we must learn to take care of ourselves. Even those who hate the idea of self promotion must develop strategies for getting the visibility and recognition we deserve. If we don’t our careers may become stagnant. Our jobs may even be at risk. No matter how fabulous our performance may be, if our value is not noticed by others, then opportunities pass us by and those who’ve made sure their worth is recognized are rewarded with promotions, interesting assignments enhanced flexibility and increased protection against layoffs.”

Power Your Career: The Art of Tactful Self Promotion at Work equips employees, job seekers, organizational leaders and entrepreneurs and free lancers with practical and powerful strategies for promoting their interests, while maintaining their self respect.
