Marketers spend their days (and sometimes nights) figuring out the best way to sell a product, idea, or organization but often struggle to sell themselves. Whether it’s for a new job, moving up in your career, or simply chatting with colleagues at a conference, it’s important to present yourself in a way that keeps others interested and impressed. Learning a few key strategies can take these important interactions from “meh” to “oh, yeah!”
