职场专家Alexandra Levit就给出了一些简单易行的小妙招助你在老板心中留下好印象。她建议说,首先你要先取悦你的直属上司,因为他们才是真正见证你每日工作的人。而且直属上司在你的工作评估和升职问题上也有很大的发言权。下面就是五个你需要记住的小妙招:

1. Be the can-do employee. Accept any assignment graciously and without complaining. Take a leadership role in the group even if it's outside your comfort zone.

2. Look for new challenges. Don't get reticent because you're good at your current role. Keep thinking of new ideas.

3. Practice good time management. Get assignments done before deadline. Never make your boss ask when something will be ready.

4. Be proactive and be your boss' friend. Know his or her spouse and children and work to make small-talk. This will make it easier to come to your boss with ideas.

5. Keep up-to-date. Read trade publications and follow industry-relevant people on Twitter. Your boss will appreciate if you're in-the-loop about stuff they don't have time to follow.
