Asking your boss for a performance review may sound scary, but it often comes with unexpected bonuses. For example, a review may give you the opportunity to highlight your own, perhaps unnoticed, accomplishments, like that story you broke or interviews you’ve nailed.
“If your boss isn’t involved in your day-to-day, she might not know what you’re working on,” said Rachel Dotson, content manager for ZipRecruiter.com. “A review forces her to sit down with you, so you can communicate your impact and value to the company.”
To really impress your boss, prepare in advance a list of individual accomplishments or your role in team accomplishments.
