So how can an early bird get noticed?
“Make sure that your co-workers realize that while they are still at home in a bathrobe, you are at your desk, getting a head start on your day,” says Laura Stack, time- expert and author of Find More Time and Leave the Office Earlier.
Handle your correspondence first thing in the morning.
“Your e-mail time-stamp might be the only way someone realizes that you don’t just cut out in the late afternoon because you feel like it,” says Stack.
“Those who leave the office at six or seven at night will also be sure to notice that you answered their question before they’ve even managed to sit down at their desk the following day,” she says.
