Movin' On Up


Getting your name and work honored are keys to moving up the corporate ladder.

 

Here are some tips to get that extra boost to get ahead:

 

Get out of the office. Go to conferences. Share your ideas in discussions and meetings. Read up about the conference theme so you’ll have some intelligent things to say.

 

Get quoted. Find people who write articles about business or your field. Come up with fresh ideas and find someone who might quote you.

 

Speak up. Volunteer to give talks to groups in your community. Have something novel to say.

 

Study your favorite trade magazines. Consider writing something for publication. Also, think about how you might get mentioned by someone else.

 

Go to events. Get involved in extracurricular events in your community and your industry. These can help give you the visibility you need to be seen as a leader.
