Especially during the challenges of a global pandemic, it can be difficult to feel professionally successful in your role or career.
Remote work, time management problems, and constant Zoom meetings can deplete feelings of professional success you may have felt while working in-office.
A new survey from The Manifest found that there are several activities that could make employees feel more professionally successful. However, each opportunity is commonly underused by employees. The survey found:

- About 8% of workers negotiate their salaries
- 23% of employees partake in networking activities
