The most important skill you will ever learn is to advocate for yourself. Learning how to speak up and ask for what you want – from promotions and pay raises to professional development opportunities – can be the difference between getting stuck in a rut or rising into the C-suite. In this Career Coffee, we discuss how you can be your own career champion.
Key conversation topics include:
- How do you ask for a raise?
- How do you seek out professional development opportunities?
- How can you ask someone to be a mentor?
- What is tactful self-promotion?
- How do you find opportunities for recognition, awards or new jobs?
- How do you demonstrate your value and stand out?
