Create your Online presence with Integrity & competence!
First step is to create an accessible e-portfolio then make sure you are active in an online team or community related to your field or profession.
Second step is to always improve your qualifications with latest and up to date career special certifications.
Sacrificing some funds and time for this is necessary and will profit one on the long run.
DissTroy:
Continuous professional development. Take courses. You can learn how to write CVs the modern way online. You can learn within months how to prepare any kind of document with legal backing from resources on the internet. You should be able to prepare MOUs, deeds and any such document.

There are affordable product management course online or programmes to effectively manage teams.

If you are tech-inclined, of course the opportunities are endless to learn and become a professional. The best skill you'd learn is never to be complacent and always self-improve.
@OP this is useful ..nice suggestions.

Put in your best, and continue to develop yourself. Honestly, it takes a little time but someone will notice you and doors will open. That opportunity might not come from your present place of work

Confidence, experience and professionalism, always maintain a firm handshake and go straight to the point when analysing.
I'm an Air condition technician and I have learnt in my line of work to always apply these attributes. Work on being good with yourself so people could refer you. Reference makes the work easier.

You have a bigger opportunity to become rich. There is too much competition at the workplace. You find a lot of who have worked for many years without promotion, but no one can deny you that in your own business.

Sell yourself by networking.
Increase your contacts both online and offline first.
When you then bring a product, you will have people to listen.

When you can sell yourself very well no interview wouldn't favour you.

No matter your certificate or qualifications, many graduates can't sell their certificate talk more of careers.

Simply packaging your self.
Identify things you have done in the past attaching the monetary value with Confidence

Take for example.
I have managed a team with fund recovery team in the past

To

I have successfully managed more than 30 men team, who on daily basis perform recovery task towards a daily target of 10million naira, yielding more than 30% profit towards the organization between Jan'21 and May'21, hence improving client/customer bonding and relationship.

Re: How Can One Sell Him/herself In Career World by vioment: 2:43pm On Jun 10
Improve yourself by learning and knowing about something or somethings that are related to that job or career.


Try to be eloquent:- not by forming anyhow. Be audible, talk when given the chance and listen when not talking if your ears dey work.


Stay abreast of the changing dynamics of the career if you can.


Network with peers, know that some of them will be partners and some will be competitors. Don't be aloof.

1. Learn the skill to do a good job,
2. Build meaningful relationships top, down and sideways.
3. Find a way to do something within the company that's invaluable, probably something no one else wants to do.
4. Be ready to change your employer
5. Do a good CV, cover letter and have a good LinkedIn profile.
6. You can find the details in my book on amazon.
