DO take credit...
but don't "walk around with a big neon sign that says I'M GREAT," says career coach Marie McIntyre. "Look for
opportunities to let people know what you're doing." One good strategy: Create a paper trail by copying your boss on e-mail (selectively!). And periodically take the initiative to
send a summary of what you're working on.DON'T ask for a raise or a promotion.
Be patient, and be grateful for now that you've got a job.
