Advancing your career is easy if you follow a few simple steps;
 
Conduct yourself professionally
Professional conduct keeps the workplace a safe and productive environment for everyone. An easy way to do this is avoid office politics and gossip and be honest and trustworthy.

Be a team player
Being a team player is essential to the smooth and efficient running of a business. To be a good team player only takes a few attributes. You must be responsible, flexible, dedicated and bring positivity to everyone around you. An example of being a team player is making sure you work towards the company’s goals and values. This helps build great relationships with your co-workers while promoting your company culture.
 
Be on time
It is advisable to arrive 5-10 minutes earlier. It shows your dedication and loyalty to your work. It also shows that you are ready and willing to work. Being early gives you time to organize your day before work starts. This requires planning the work list and confirming the daily appointments.
 
Stay late/work overtime
By offering to work overtime or until the end of the project, you can prove to your boss that you are ready to work hard. This is a glaring example that shows your commitment to your tasks and your manager. It also sets the tone that you are a hard-working person who is committed to both your position and the company.
 
Ask
When you’re in a new role, you start learning new skills and techniques. You want to make sure it doesn’t end. Ask questions throughout your role to learn more about each process and department. This way, you get a better understanding of the heart of the business.
 
Be adaptable
You can adapt to new ideas, projects and requirements and show that you are flexible and a team player. Remain calm in unexpected situations, take on different roles, and offering alternative solutions. Being adaptable shows you’re a great worker, as reflected by the variety you offer.
 
You should always put yourself in your supervisor’s shoes. Think about how you can make their job easier. The more your employer needs you, the more likely you will get a raise or promotion.
