Any conversation you have with an authority figure should go very well, especially if you don’t brag too much about your latest accomplishments. There is a time for tooting your own horn, but this is not it. Humility will earn you a lot more respect than pride. This is also not the time to push too hard for what you want. Let people know what your goals are, but leave it up to them whether or not they will give you the opportunity to try to achieve them.
