Pro­mote Your­self

CLEO (Malaysia) - - COVER STORY -

It may sound ob­vi­ous, but en­sur­ing your boss knows ex­actly who you are is one of the most es­sen­tial things you can do to get ahead. Ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor of Aus­tralia’s Re­tail Zoo and founder of Boost Juice Bars Ja­nine Al­lis says it worked for her and con­tin­ues to im­press her as a man­ager. “I al­ways made sure my bosses knew my name. When I did some­thing great, I al­ways found a way to – as mod­estly as pos­si­ble – let them know it was me. Of­ten it’s with a ques­tion: ‘Mr. Boss, I have an idea and I want your thoughts on whether it has any merit.’ This ini­tia­tive al­ways gets my at­ten­tion.”
