Make a bulleted list of all the responsibilities handled by you in the last one year.
Do not miss out on any task. Then try explaining the problems faced by you while
performing them and the way adopted to overcome the difficulties. Self initiated
efforts are always acknowledged with respect.
It is important to have undertaken additional responsibilities in your worklife.
This not only shows your dedication towards work but also the capability to
accommodate more work within the allotted time.
Sometimes you need to learn certain skills which are required in the process.
Point out any skill-building activities you’ve done or professional training courses
you’ve taken. Any knowledge transfer or training to other team members should
also be spoken about during the appraisal.
Collect your thoughts and prepare yourself for the meeting. Get your points ready
and keep all inferences to work at the back of your mind. Remember to use positive
terms and sound confident in the meeting. Present your case clearly and logically.
You cannot barge in your boss’ office and expect him to listen to your list. You need
to ask for time and a meeting to hold this discussion.
