1. Updating Your Resume & LinkedIn Profile



Maintain a record of your achievements from the past year. This will help you realize your market worth. Making note of such accomplishments will help you in review as well as bonus time. Even though this may seem obvious, but be sure you always have your resume and LinkedIn profile updated. This will help with keeping you visible in the job market with recruiters or hiring managers.



2. Fix up Lunchtime Conversations with Influencers



Form professional relationships with all the influencers within your organization in order to develop mutual relationships; if a great project or a higher position becomes available, they will be more likely to think of you. Your internal business network is crucial to your career success. List out the names of people within the company whom you know personally as well as professionally and ask to have lunch or a phone under the pretext of career advice, information sharing in order for you to get to know them better. Keep in mind, it’s not always about what you know, but who you know, that will eventually help you move ahead.



3. Maintain a Professional Image



Be sure to use accessories, clothes, hair do’s and spectacles that reflect a polished professional image. Maintaining a professional look is essential for first impressions. On the other hand, be aware that dressing too flashy can also come across as unappealing in a professional environment. Therefore, be mindful of the many messages you convey through your professional apparel.
