Career advancement is what every working-class individual seeks and it’s the little things that help propel you to the top. Here are a few tips to help you grow in your chosen field
- Never say “That’s not my job.” Don’t think there is any job beneath you. volunteer and set a good example, especially if the job is one that nobody else wants to do. Your willingness to do so will be noticed and appreciated!
- Share the credit. People who share credit with others make a stronger impression than those who take all the credit themselves.
- Never gossip. Gossip does no good to the careers of two people: the person being talked about, and the person doing the talking.
- Ask for help when you need it. Don’t let a difficult task get worse. When you need help, ask for it — before things get out of hand.
- Take responsibility for your actions. If you make a mistake, admit it and take the blame. If you’re wrong, apologize. accountability is a valid asset.
- Don’t hold grudges. Life doesn’t always go the way we planned. If you were passed over for promotion, didn’t get the project you wanted, etc., let it go. Be gracious and diplomatic, focus on the future and move on. Keeping grudges won’t advance your career.
- Make others feel important. Compliment others, emphasize their strengths and contributions, and help them whenever you can. What goes around comes around.
