It's time you saw your career from a different perspective
Been thinking about applying for that promotion but aren’t confident that you can tick all the boxes on the job description? Apply anyway. Studies show that men apply for a job when they meet only 60% of the qualifications, but women apply only if they meet 100%*. Remember this stat next time you think you aren’t good enough and check if you’re under selling your abilities. And if you’re looking to take on responsibilities or work on an upcoming project don’t wait for your boss to approach you. But even the best ideas can go unnoticed if they aren’t presented in the right way. Pick your timing carefully and don’t waffle. Mondays and mornings should be avoided as the boss tends to be rushed and getting across what they need to do for the day. Use examples to back yourself up. For the best results, prepare for the tough questions like resourcing and budgets in advance.* Lean In: Women, Work and the Will to Lead by Sheryl Sandberg
