Boorish or Self-Confident?

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.
