  22. Q1) @bizsavvycoach Why is it important to learn how to brag and develop your brag factor? #linkedinchat
  23. I think we need to come up with a more neutral sounding word than "lurk" #linkedinchat
  24. A1) Not LI specific, but if you don't believe in yourself, why should anyone else? #LinkedInChat
  25. RT @conpsweeney Q1) @bizsavvycoach If you can’t sell yourself, you can’t sell your products, services or book #linkedinchat

  27. A1 I am GREAT at helping other people promote themselves, but TERRIBLE at doing it for myself. #linkedinchat
  28. If I could promote myself as well as I help others promote themselves, I would have ALREADY taken over the world! #linkedinchat
  29. A1: Bragging (occasionally) can help you build confidence in your work. #linkedinchat
  30. A1) No one is going to speakup for you ij regards to what you can do/what youve done. If you want a job, people need to know #linkedinchat

  44. a3 Getting beyond the difficulty of talking about yourself - that simple I thing Practice #LinkedInChat
  45. RT @conpsweeney RT @dmboutin: A3) Not sounding like you're bragging? Correct. Create stories and statements in response to ?s #LinkedInChat
  46. A3: When bragging strategically, you should try not to be abrasive or facetious. It's important to be mindful of your audience #linkedinchat
  47. RT @conpsweeney Q4) @bizsavvycoach Share your brag statements and using your numbers! (aka achievements) #linkedinchat
  48. A1 - As far as bragging - How do I know you know your stuff? Do not tell me but show me. #linkedinchat
  49. #linkedinchat a3: In the Hotel Industry it is more about the stories and how to add value. When you do it right then you receive brags
  50. A3) u need to learn how to do it in a well meaning mannor that conveys how your personality can align with your target company #linkedinchat

  58. Biggest challenge for jobhunter is to take accomplishments and build illustrative stories around them. #LinkedInChat
  59. A5) Possibly not having enough confidence in yourself/not wanting to sound like you're bragging #linkedinchat
  60. ...The stories then can illustrate why they need to hire you. #LinkedInChat
  61. A5) Often laziness not wanting to take that extra step, being content with simply having done something yet not marketing it. #LinkedInChat
  62. @andyb531 Answer every question in an interview with -- Let me tell about the time when….. #linkedinchat
  63. RT @andyb531 ...The stories then can illustrate why they need to hire you. #LinkedInChat
  64. Q6) @bizsavvycoach How can you use this information to find your career direction/purpose? #linkedinchat

  73. @andyb531 and tell the story that relates to the conversation ... (2 of 2) #LinkedInChat
  74. A6) It can be a good reminder to you on your accomplishments #linkedinchat
  75. @socialwebcafe Absolutely. But preparation, building the stories, is the hard part. Any tips? #LinkedInChat
  76. RT @booklover1992 A6) It can be a good reminder to you on your accomplishments .. Very True. #linkedinchat
  77. @andyb531 The hardest part for me was sitting down & doing it. I thought it would be harder, but once I got in the groove.. #LinkedInChat
  78. @conpsweeney A9 Posting work samples and illustrations on your profile: blog posts, presentations, photos, etc. #LinkedInChat
  79. A9) All the different ways to link to samples of your work #linkedinchat

  83. .@conpsweeney A9) Showcasing your work. Bragging can't get any better than the #LinkedInChat
  84. A9) #LinkedIn is great because it's the new age resume. An update that allowed for video resumes/ cvs would be awesome #linkedinchat
  85. I think #LinkedIn took away your number of connections to cut down on the numbers game #linkedinchat
  86. @ChaimShapiro Yeah, #'s of connections is not a useful statistic. That's just bragging old-school. #LinkedInChat
  87. A10) #Linkedin keeps people competitive. Someone sees their friend has a hot new job encouraging them to get a better job #LinkedInChat

  102. Hello @conpsweeney, @socialwebcafe, and everyone else in #SocialCafe! I am Mariah and I'm an RTVF major/ Comm minor at UNT !
  103. A great quote by school principal, Eric Sheninger : "if you don’t tell your story someone else will."  http://esheninger.blogspot.com/2015/08/get-your-brag-on.html  #SocialCafe
  104. When I coach, I use the word "stories" for bragging #SocialCafe
  105. Hey everyone! First time attending #socialcafe! Social media strategist here looking to learn & network!
  106. @conpsweeney I think "bragging" has a negative connotation but I think celebrating achievements is a great practice! #socialcafe
  107. Advice, create a "stories page." The nice thing is you can always add to it (edit it) through time.. #SocialCafe "Getting your brag on"
  108. @socialwebcafe @PayingForSchool #socialcafe And always adapt to the needs of either a potential employer or client!
  109. Let's practice a bit. How about sharing a brag point? #SocialCafe
  110. @1MariahMartinez @socialwebcafe #socialcafe That's good but put it in the context of why is that good for an employer!
  111. Hey students. Just wanted to let you know that #SocialCafe is back at its "old" time slot of Tues 9p EST #ccmkt350
  112. @socialwebcafe Would "Maintained a gpa of 3.7 throughout my current 3 years at a Univeristy" count? Or is that too broad? #SocialCafe
  113. @conpsweeney @socialwebcafe So maybe... "Continuously excelled in strategic social media and media production courses"? #SocialCafe
  114. @socialwebcafe @conpsweeney I like to point out some big name brands that are recognizable, who I've worked w/ in my portfolio #socialcafe
  115. @conpsweeney @socialwebcafe I have both. I use each platform differently. I want to share these moments with my FB audience. #SocialCafe
  116. The folks at @VoltJobs tell us "How to Brag on Your Resume When You're Bad at Bragging"  https://shar.es/1czn4d  #SocialCafe
  117. @conpsweeney Oh yes! I have heard that! #SocialCafe // I've been on Twitter since you had to manually put in "RT"s to retweet anyone
  118. .@PRMktgSalesI just discovered these today as well! . @conpsweeney is great to interact with during #LinkedInChat (8 PM EST) & #SocialCafe.
  119. .@PRMktgSalesI just discovered these today as well! . @conpsweeney is great to interact with during #LinkedInChat (8 PM EST) & #SocialCafe.
  120. #socialcafe Everyone comfortable with #bragging about real & relevant accomplishments
  121. @conpsweeney I actually have a really hard time "bragging". Is there anyway to /practice/ that? #SocialCafe
  122. Another name for "stories page" ..> How To Write A Brag Sheet To Get Promoted  https://shar.es/1czmzd  via @PMPhacks #SocialCafe
  123. @1MariahMartinez #socialcafe Yes, work on your social media profiles & content & join @Toastmasters for real practice
  124. @conpsweeney @socialwebcafe My FB audience consists of near/far friend, familial, & professional connections (w/intermixing). #SocialCafe
  125. Before we close.. a homework challenge: Take time to sit down and write out 10 stories that demonstrate your accomplishments #SocialCafe
  126. @kristensadlier I'd follow a Kristen Sadlier page! You could start a page for content curation for your field of interest. #SocialCafe
  127. Now you've got me thinking about what I need to "brag" about. 'Tooting my own horn', not waiting for others to notice me. #SocialCafe
  128. @PRMktgSales #socialcafe Yes The movie was wrong! They will not come if your just build it! You have to promote it!
  129. #socialcafe OK all we'll stop here for tonight! Have a great week & hope to see you next week! Please bring your friends!
  130. I avoid bragging online/offline, unless it contributes to the conversation. I find bragging can stunt an in-progress connection. #SocialCafe
  131. @1MariahMartinez I think, for my field(s), an up-to-date online portfolio is beneficial. I'm not sure that FB is the platform. #SocialCafe
  132. @1MariahMartinez I've witnessed friends attempt this. I want a hub that can be shared, but, perhaps, is not Facebook based. #SocialCafe
