Everyone wants to do a good job and every industry is competitive in some shape or form, so here are 5 habits to make you stand out at work
1. Being known for something specific. The traits you possess are unique and the way you incorporate them is what will make you indispensable. If you can already list your relevant strengths, remember to look for opportunities to utilize them at work. No worries if you’re not sure what your knack around the office is— keep an open mind and pay attention to what your co-workers come to you for.
2. Making connections outside of your team. To put it honestly, your talent in finishing the work in front of you is crucial, and so is your desire to make connections with those around you. While it’s important to have a good relationship with your team, it’s also a great idea to become familiar with those outside of your department. Make an effort to spend some time with people you don’t usually spend time with – have a coffee with the receptionist, make a habit of going past a different department and striking up conversations. Make the circle bigger!
3. Predicting when coworkers need help. Another smart way to bring attention to yourself is by helping someone else. Even though your job description might not include sharing information and facts to guide a co-worker through his or her job, it’s nice to reach out when you believe you can help.
4. Over-delivering on your tasks. While completing your work will keep you hired, your dedication to go above and beyond is what will get you noticed. I’m not saying work yourself to burn out, but when you do go the extra mile, that creates the lasting impression.
5. Showing a willingness to learn more. The only thing a company loves more than an employee who can do the work is one who can do the work and displays initiative of wanting to do more. In spite of being successful in your role, there’s always different skills and programs that you can master.
