#76 Sell Yourself

Sell Yourself

Like the issue of publication, this is an issue that tends to split librarians. Should we yell and shout about the good things we do?

Well, yes is the simple answer. This doesn’t have to come across as a bragging exercise. There are many ways to sell yourself without making a big issue of it.

Some activities self-register such as anything you publish on the web including blogs, websites, links databases, book reviews etc. You can also highlight your successes and the robustness of your day to day activities via annual reports which can include stats, user comments and outcomes of projects. User surveys can also provide you with raw materials to highlight the success of the services you provide. Keep a CPD record to show how you, as a professional, are constantly developing.

If you’re doing it well, you should let them know that!
