Brits too polite to secure a new job
According to latest research from LinkedIn, our politeness and modesty is hampering Britons career prospects. Their survey states that 32% of Brits don't like talking about their own achievements in job interviews and job reviews. 40% admit to feeling uncomfortable when networking with people they don't know.
More than half of the 2,000 respondents (56%) said they have missed out on promotions due to their modesty. Although this stat would indicate that it doesn't sound like they were too modest in this survey!
Be more forward! Get that job!
