CodeMash 2020 | Document Yourself: A Framework for Career Advancement | Michelle Brenner
What you'll learn
The goal of this workshop is to document yourself the way you would document code. You wouldn't expect someone who wants to use the program you built to read every line of code. Instead, they're relying on the design documents and doc strings to know how it works. The same is true with your career. This talk is about making it easy for you to provide overwhelming evidence of your value to the company. When you can show your return on investment (ROI), it’s much easier to secure a promotion, raise, or new job. Michelle Brenner's session consists of three parts. Writing your daily accomplishments in the form of success statements. Putting them together into a brag sheet. And, finally, using them to create your elevator pitch. This framework helps you make a habit out of documenting. Once you have documented yourself, you will be amazed at how much you have accomplished. You will walk away with the confidence and plan to take your next step.
