Slight crisis of confidence at work

Tuesday 27th January - 2 months, 11 days

Midday: I suck at my job.

3.25pm: Changed my mind. I don’t suck at my job. It just *looks* like I suck at my job when my slow-and-steady, attempting-to-build-trust volunteer/researcher attitude is contrasted with the gotta-get-it-done consultant attitude.

My ANU lecturers would be proud of me (because they are trying to produce better consultants, as well as better development workers, public servants and volunteers), I think we will both get our jobs done in the end, and my way will be less stressful. However, I do wish I was better at promoting myself.

Any advice on talking myself up and making myself look extremely good? I think my work backs it up, I’m just not the greatest at showing that.
