This week we sit down with Joymarie Parker, Creator and Co-Host of Joblogues, a weekly podcast that highlights candid, career conversations with young professionals around the globe. Joymarie is an experiential marketer for a Fortune 100 firm with a love for mentoring young professionals. Inspired by everyday conversations with friends, family and coworkers, she launched Joblogues as a forum for young professionals to discuss work, life & everything in-between.
In this episode, Joymarie shares the importance of recognizing our value in the workplace, particularly when it comes to compensation. She shares a few pro tips for getting ahead in your career:
- Develop meaningful relationships that go beyond transactional networking (what someone can do for you), figure out how you can provide value. Learn to give instead of expecting to receive.
- Respect and make the most of your background. You bring to the table what no one else does, so think of your experience as an asset.
- Bring your A-game to everything you do. Go above and beyond at work by maximizing your unique skills and abilities.
Quotable advice from Joy:
“Don’t ever let anyone undermine your value”
“Set the bar where you want people to meet you.”
