How to impress your boss.
SIMPLE, SURE-FIRE WAYS TO MAKE AN IMPRESSION ON YOUR SUPERIOR.
LEARN TO LOVE CRITICISM
Constructive criticisms are a chance for you to ask where you can improve. Everyone has their weaknesses so by having yours pointed out, it makes it easier to see what you should and shouldn’t be doing.
BE HONEST ABOUT WHAT YOU REALLY KNOW
Saying you know how to do something when in reality you don’t can cause a lot of problems. Not only will others have to fix your mistake but you could come off as incompetent. So be careful what you say yes to.
DON’T SKIMP ON CREDIT
Got a praise for a job well done? Great. But don’t deny someone else credit just to make yourself look good. If a colleague helped you out, make sure to mention it so it doesn’t seem like you’re hogging the limelight.
DRESS FOR THE JOB YOU WANT
Take note of the people a rung above you and dress similar to them. Keeping well groomed is a good way to expand your job scope and show that you mean business.
