4 Ways to stand out and get noticed at work
Do quality work. If you want to get noticed, the first step is to do work that is worth noticing! Communicate and ask for feedback. When you’re finished a project or assignment, let the person who assigned it to you know that it’s complete and ask for feedback. What can you improve on or what might you need to follow through on next? Make your boss look good! We often don’t think about the importance of helping your boss stand out, but the better they do the more likely they are to get promoted. When they move up, you’ll be the first they think of to be their replacement. Celebrate your team. If someone on your team did an awesome job, let them know! Be the first to acknowledge someone else’s accomplishments.
