How do you "sell" yourself if you are shy?

Career strategy demands that you learn to promote yourself, or "sell" yourself. But what of those amongst us who are shy, or who have been taught that boasting is not indicative of politeness?

Truth is, career-related promotion is not about boasting and selling, it is about knowing which facts to communicate. It's not about using sales pitches or a line of questioning that leads to a "buy," it is about demonstrating, with carefully chosen examples, how your performance at work led to productivity and profits. It's as simple and as complex as that.
