Make Sure To Do This To Get Full Credit For Your Work

Core points:

  • You don't get credit automatically for doing good work, especially if you work in a large company.
  • It is vital that you bring visibility to your work and claim credit for jobs well done in project updates, meetings, and other more public avenues.
  • You may feel "icky" for sharing status updates - Don't! If your work is truly important, than it's worth sharing about and keeping the team in the loop. If you don't feel like your work is important, then you have a separate problem you need to address.
  • Use project updates to thank others! Treat it as a mechanism to build social capital.
