10 career resolutions for the new year
Unless you are in sales or a role where you regularly explain your duties, you are probably not used to and uncomfortable with talking about yourself, your attributes, and shining moments. Advancing in your career or finding a new job requires you to balance humility with bravado. Your resume or a relationship may open a door, but you have to be prepared to march through it with a lot of confidence.
Find a way to get over any discomfort when talking about yourself and your accomplishments. The best job candidate is one who truly believes he or she has something unique to offer and can articulate their message with words, body language, and confidence.
