It’s important to stand up for yourself and let others know what you’ve accomplished. Instead of fading into the background in a large company, make your contributions stand out, says Katarina Milovanovic from Lifehack. Here are four ways you can get recognized for your hard work:
- Let your boss know. There are a lot of people in a company, and it’s impossible for your boss to know what everyone is doing. To get noticed, tell your boss all of the things you’ve accomplished for the company and how you want to help the company more in the future.
- Know when you’ve entered the realm of bragging. Don’t be afraid to tell people what you’ve done to help your company, but also know when enough is enough. Acknowledging can turn into bragging when you boast about every tiny accomplishment instead of just a few.
- Be proud. When you start respecting yourself and the work you do, others will follow suit. Make a list of your accomplishments at work to remind yourself of everything you’ve achieved, because once you start taking pride in your work, others will notice the difference.
- Recognize your failures. Everyone fails, but it’s how you deal with failure that defines you as a person. Learn how to take criticism and your failures will start to turn into learning experiences that can help you later on in your work life.
