Knowing Your Worth

How To NegotiateKnowing your worth is a deeply personal experience. It’s your personal assessment of how much you value yourself. The trouble is what is your worth in your career? How has the pandemic changed your worth? Has your assessment changed? We’ve all had to pivot and change over this past year. Some of us are working longer and expected to do more. In Information Technology we often under-value our skills and what we have to offer. The world has moved at breakneck speed into the digital and eCommerce space. So know and understand that you have worth. Your skill and know-how is needed. However, just because it’s a pandemic, don’t be taken advantage of. This can result in a slew of additional stresses that aren’t worth it. Always put yourself first and don’t allow others to take advantage of you.
