Re: So...ya wanna be noticed, huh?
From: John Posada <JPosada -at- book -dot- com>
Tech writers are often commenting that they aren't noticed, aren't
respected, aren't appreciated. Wanna turn that around?
Recent story, about an hour ago:
The best one...from the Manager of Network Operations Center, who hired
me...."Stop sending out your resume for Feb...you have work to do here."
What's my point?
Do something obvious. Do something on a big scale that will get attention
from outside your immediate group. Don't wait to be asked or told, and don't
ask if it is OK. Identify a need, do it and get it out there. Who knows...is
may be just what someone else in the company, who normally doesn't know who
you are, is looking for.
