Show up on time, complete the work you are assigned, and always go that extra mile so that your boss sees how valuable you are.
Set goals and know where you want to be
Write down the goals you want to accomplish for the week, month, even year. It will help you get to where you want to be in your career.
Get noticed at work
Do things that your employer isn't expecting - offer to take on extra responsibilities, do your tasks in a different and better way, and go that extra mile with your customers.
Improve your skills
Take a few classes, go to seminars, or read books related to your job/position. Constantly stay educated in your field and you will stay on top.
Learn from those around you
Sometimes there is no better way to learn than from those who surround you at work - star co-workers, bosses, managers, etc. Find a mentor and learn from him/her. Don’t be afraid to ask questions.
Know how to deal with problems
Managers always notice those people who know how to handle pressure and deal with problems that arise in the workplace. Staying calm is important, but acting quickly is also key.
Doing a great job now doesn’t just make you a great employee, it makes career growth and job searches easier later!
