- Be indispensable
Going beyond the call of duty in other areas outside your job description will most definitely get you noticed. Keep up to date with all the industry developments and prove yourself to be an indispensable resource to the company.
- Dress to impress
Dress professionally and appropriately – by dressing smartly you will command the attention of your colleagues and superiors.
- Don’t be late
Always be on time for work, if possible arrive a little early and leave a little late.
- Blow your own trumpet
Keep a record of your achievements and make sure your boss knows about them.
- Be reliable
Always complete all tasks to deadline – remember it is better to under promise and over deliver on a consistent basis.
- Be visible
Make a concerted effort to walk around the office at least once a day – this is an ideal opportunity to find out what your colleagues are working on and see what you can help with or to simply have a chat.
- Step up to the plate
If an opportunity or task arises and you have the capacity to complete it to deadline, raise your hand high and take it on board.
- Learn, learn, learn
There is always something new to learn that will help you be more productive in your work. Strive to learn something new each day, no matter how big or small it might be.
- Be a mentor
Always be helpful and share your knowledge with others in the workplace. By doing this, in the long-term you will definitely reap the rewards.
When you are speaking to your colleagues or superiors, make sure you are giving them your full attention. You can often gain much more from being a good listener than being a good talker at work.
Get to know people from other departments . Make that extra special effort to go for drinks after work on a Friday and chat to people in the kitchen – before you know it everyone will know your name.
