"The guide to getting hired, being promoted, and thriving professionally for the 40 million people of color in the workplace. Companies say they understand that a diverse workforce is good for business, but they just don't have enough candidates to diversify their ranks. Let Them See You is the straight-talking, practical guide for entry- to mid-level professionals who know they have what it takes to succeed in the workplace and contribute meaningfully to the diversification movement. Porter Braswell shows the way, based on his personal experience as one of the few young black professionals working on Wall Street and from his transition to technology entrepreneur and co-founder of Jopwell, the largest career platform for diverse talent. In Let Them See You,Braswell outlines all the lessons he has learned from advising people of color on the front lines of the fast-changing workplace, such as how to scale not-so-invisible obstacles, create perceived value, get recognized, be true to yourself, build a personal brand, harness fear of failure, and embrace uncomfortable conversations"-- Provided by publisher.
