ASK FOR WHAT YOU NEED

Finweek English Edition - - MANAGEMENT -

Smart em­ploy­ees use self-ap­praisals to lobby for ca­reer devel­op­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties. Even if your boss doesn’t ex­plic­itly ask for this, But­ler says you should in­clude it any­way “be­cause if you don’t ask, it’s not go­ing to hap­pen.” Ex­plain the as­pects of your job that most ex­cite you and sug­gest ways you can be­come more in­volved in those things. You might ask to be in­cluded in cer­tain brain­storm­ing meet­ings or re­quest fund­ing to take a class on data an­a­lyt­ics. Make sure th­ese re­quests ref lect what your busi­ness unit needs too.
