Career Coffee: Advocating for Yourself

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 month’s 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?

The Career Coffee series is free to members and non-members, but space is limited.
