You do everything right. You come early, you also stay late.
Your performance is above average, and you know how to get the job done. The problem is no one is acknowledging you and your performance.
So instead of letting all of this effort to waste, today we are going to show you 5 easy ways you can finally get yourself noticed at work, so you can get that promotion, or that raise you are wanting.
1. Take An Initiative
Has there been a task that has been sitting around not done, or one that no one wants to do? If you really want to get noticed, do a task that has been sitting on your bosses desk for sometime that needs to get done, but has not been attended to. This way, it shows that you can take initiative and become someone who is a great asset.
One way to get noticed and get ahead at you job is to know people. Networking is about not only meeting new people, but about developing a relationship that is symbiotic, one that benefits both parties.
Be someone that is approachable, and one that people want to talk to. When promotion time comes around, you can now make sure that people will vouch for you and your abilities.
3. Become A Better Team Player
Working in any organization means that you will have to work for others. Even if your job involves you to sit in your cubicle and not have to deal with anyone else all day, this doesn’t mean that you should distance yourself from others.
Get to know your other coworkers, and see what they need help with. Be a team player and a valuable asset to the organization. If someone doesn’t know something, offer to train them to help them out.
Any which way you can work together with your coworkers will go a long way to getting you noticed with your boss and your colleagues alike.
4. Speak Your Mind
You are never going to get noticed if you stay quiet. When you are in staff meetings, make sure you put in your suggestions to improve processes and work flows. While working with coworkers on a major project, make sure you chime in and put your ideas to the table to help the client. You see, there are so many ways you can make yourself seen by being heard.
This increases your value, and the ones who speak up are those that act like leaders, and are certainly the ones that get noticed.
5. Help Promote The Business
Even if you haven’t been hired to be part of the sales department, the company still needs to make money, and if you are promoting the business and helping bring in new clients, you will definitely be seen as an asset to the company.
If you have or see any ways that the company can improve their bottom line, make sure your management staff know about it. This will be seen as a very positive trait, someone who not only cares about their own well being, but the well being of the company as well.
So as you can see, if you are looking for ways to get yourself in front of the light, and get yourself seen, just even following a few of the above tricks can do the job for you, and hopefully land you that next raise or promotion. Good luck.
