Here, you're in competition with the best people on the planet. So, having someone better than you is a reality, not just an anxiety. In my case, the best Digital Marketing people are here. They've all worked for some "Fortune 500" company, or the next big startup, or the fastest-growing company in the Bay, etc.
So, what can I do to stand out; in addition of all the networking thing, being the best at what I do and all the others "believe in yourself" clichéd advices?
Well, I try to do all those things and much, much more. But the best advice I like to give to myself is "be yourself". Maybe you didn't work at a "Fortune 500" company or in the hottest startup of the Bay (well, I've worked at a pretty good Montreal startup, man!), but you've worked hard and, yes, you did your best and you've delivered concrete results. So, it's time to get the word out!
Yes, I know, it's hard to not sound like Kanye West those days...
