Have you ever wondered why it is that some people seem to have the ability to rise or climb in their careers? In this paper, the practitioner-author examines the various ways to be MAD: Make A Difference for oneself and be able to market oneself, and grow one’s career. Where necessary, the discussions are linked or associated with the values espoused and more so, from the Chinese perspective (since more so, the author is writing for Asia and for Asians’ applications; note Asia is rising), to differentiate oneself in order to achieve career success.
Keywords: Self-marketing, career development; differentiation; values, integrity; learning, loving, serving; being socially responsible.
