STRATEGY SESSION: Get Noticed: Increase your visibility in the workplace
Do you feel like you work hard but do not get any recognition? Does management even know your name? Does your professional and personal network know what you do and of your accomplishments, or are you afraid to "toot your own horn"? If any of this sounds familiar, never fear as you are your own best advocate! Please come join us on Monday, June 4, 2012 for an interactive discussion to learn strategies for transitioning from anonymity to rock star and getting the career and recognition that you want and deserve.
