Awards that are reviewed by industry leading judges can be helpful for your own career development. They are recognition from the industry that you are succeeding in your role. It is not always appropriate to put your achievements on a LinkedIn profile or website but it is appropriate to put awards online. This demonstrates that your work has been reviewed and recognised.
Celebrating your award on social media also brings you to the attention of recruiters and hiring managers. This can help set you apart and see you headhunted or approached about opportunities.
Completing an application form also forces you to consider your achievements. We don’t always take the time to write down what we have done well. This can be a good reminder and enable you to highlight your achievements internally. Getting a cybersecurity award can help you ask for a raise or a promotion.
