Get Recognition At Work: Make Yourself Visible

August 4th, 2010 by ROZEE Team

Most people think that putting the maximum effort into work and yielding good results is enough to prosper in the professional life. They realize their mistake only when it’s too late and the promotion goes to someone else. Most people fail to guess what went wrong and rightfully feel undervalued. It is true that some level of favoritism exists in organizations but you need to make sure that the reason you were overlooked does not have something to do with your performance.

Many people have no idea that it is as important to be prominent at work as it is to work hard and accomplish the tasks at hand. In today’s competitive work climate, it is essential to get your superiors apprised of your efficiency and what you are contributing to the organization. There are people around you who are constantly showing off their success to the superiors and bear in mind that when the time for a promotion comes, the first name that springs to the mind of the employer is of one such worker.

All Of My Colleagues Are Moving On To Better Jobs. Should I Try To Find Another Job As Well?

August 4th, 2010 by ROZEE Team

Question from the job seeker

I have been reading your newsletter for quite some time now and I find the suggestions given by you extremely helpful. I am an engineer working in a private organization for the last 2 years. The job is good and the coworkers are friendly and helpful. Even my boss is great and very helpful with all the employees. So far, I have had no reason to complain and my job satisfaction level has been high on the scale. However, recently the rumor started that the organization was about to shut down and the employees will become jobless. While the boss denies all this, the employees have already started moving. Many of my coworkers have left for better jobs and many are still looking. My dilemma is that I have grown too comfortable in this job and leaving is not a good option for me. On the other hand, I feel like I have gained all that I could from this job and need something more challenging. Also the rumors have gotten me worried as to my future in this company. Please advice what should I do?

How Can I Be A Professional Employee When I Have No Prior Experience?

July 28th, 2010 by ROZEE Team

Question from the job seeker

I am a fresh graduate working in an NGO. I have finished my degree in BBA (HONS) before joining the NGO. The problem with me is that I am totally new in the practical field and am facing difficulties in fulfilling my duties. Moreover, my boss is not at all happy with my work as he claims that I am not a professional employee and cannot handle the work satisfactorily. I agree that I do not know anything about my work but the fact is that I am new in this field so obviously I do not have any relevant experience or the required knowhow. However, in order to prove myself worthy and to please my boss I do my work with maximum possible effort, but still get no response or recognition from him. Please suggest what should be done to improve the situation and make sure that my boss does not fire me. I have no experience in the professional field which is why I am totally unable to solve the problem on my own. Help me get myself out of this quagmire and get on the road to success.
