You’ll never get ahead at work if no one knows you’re there. Here are three simple tactics for being recognized for your skill and hard work on the job:
- Go beyond your job description. Seek out and volunteer for tasks outside your normal responsibilities that show you can go above and beyond. Demonstrate that you’re willing to go the extra mile for your boss, team, and organization. Anyone can do what is required of them, but many do not step outside of the bare minimum.
- Connect with higher-ups. You don’t have to be a sycophant, but making connections and relationships with the leaders in your organization is always a good idea. Talk to them about their goals and the organization’s objectives. Show that you have the wellness of the organization in mind.
- Find something you love. Develop expertise in a specific area that you enjoy. Find that particular task you are great at and excel in it. Let people know you’re available to help them with duties related to your specialty. Everyone loves a good team player who cares about the success of their coworkers. Show your enthusiasm for your work. Managers and co-workers like to deal with a positive, skilled professional.
