How and Why to Self-Promote at Work

Let’s cut to the chase and give the best tip—if you are apprehensive about broadcasting your accomplishments to others, then just pretend you are talking about someone else, like a favorite colleague. This is one insight gathered from an article by Anne Fisher for Fortune. She answers a reader’s questions about how to self-promote, among other things. Another useful thing to remember is that a major reason people self-promote is their superiors are often simply unaware of all the good things they do. If you do not find a way to promote your successes, it is quite likely many people will never learn about them. This places you in a less than optimal position to get promoted.
