I work in a software development firm & feel my work is not appreciated as much as it should. Over the period I have seen people (does not work) who highlight their work are the ones who are more successful as compared to those who believes their work will speak for itself.
I have seen those individuals who go out with managers and praise manager all the time gets higher visibility. Many people never criticize the manager even when the manager is wrong. As for me I cannot be part of such meeting and cannot praise anyone when they are wrong.
I don't like to send mails for every small task I do. I am paid to do my work. But some people send mails for every small task they perform. I personally think its unethical.
I wonder how can I market my work or get appreciation for my work ?
How can I publish my work to larger audience without making it look that I am trying to take extra credit.
