About this week's tweet chat

Whether you're planning on talking to your boss about a promotion within the next few weeks, or are embarking on a program of self-development that will help you to take on a more senior role in the future, it never hurts to think ahead. Our #MTTalk this Friday (04/15/2016) at 1pm EST covers exactly that: how to get ahead in your career. This is a topic that's important to every single person in the workforce, as it plays an important role in achieving your long-term goals, and in the legacy you leave behind.

We hope you'll participate! To get you started thinking on this week's topic, here's a preview of some of the questions we’ll be asking:

  • What's been holding you back in your career?
  • How can you stay visible at work?
  • What advice would you give to a new employee about getting ahead in his or her career?


Don't worry if you don’t feel quite ready to answer those questions yet. We've provided some excellent resources that relate to the topic, to get you thinking. These articles give you an excellent insight into finding direction for your career, becoming a proactive manager, and increasing your visibility at work.

Our #MTTalk this Friday (04/15/2016) at 1pm EST is the perfect opportunity for you to learn how to get ahead in your career, and to share your wealth of knowledge and experience on the subject. We are so excited to hear your thoughts, and we’ll be sharing the most insightful responses on our blog next week.

How to join

Follow us on Twitter to make sure you don’t miss out on any of the action this Friday! We’ll be tweeting out 10 questions during our hour-long chat, and you can join in by using the hashtag #MTTalk in your responses.
