Why is self-promotion in the workplace important?
Especially in a competitive industry, it’s important to make sure that your boss and colleagues know what you’re capable of. Self-promotion can help you to do this by highlighting your skills and accomplishments, and help you get ahead in your career by making a case for why you deserve a promotion or a raise.
Self-promotion is a valuable skill that can lead to more opportunities such as being invited to speak at conferences, being given leadership roles, or being considered for new projects. It can also bolster your personal brand and establish yourself as an expert in your field, which in turn improves confidence levels in your abilities.
