Dr. Lee Skallerup argues that women who promote themselves are seen as bad female academics. She has information to back this claim up as well.
This makes me ponder whether I have been self-promoting sufficiently since rarely has anyone mentioned that I should back off or back down.
Hmm. So how should I self-promote? I have sent my summer activities in to my department and my college. I have also sent a longer version to the department blog.
I definitely need to do more with Twitter. Here Dr. Skallerup is an icon to follow.
Do you announce where you are presenting? Do you ask for feedback?
I need to think about this some more.
