ONLINE EXTRA: Are You Doing All You Can to Keep Your Job? Part 5

This multi-part series offers quick tips to help you succeed at work and get ahead.

You can do many things to succeed in your career. Here are some tips to improve your chances of achieving workplace success, in spite of any economic ups and downs.

7. Communicate with your supervisor.
Keeping the lines of communication open between you and your supervisor can only benefit you. The more you communicate with him or her, the more they will keep you posted on current events in your office.

Your supervisor cannot watch you all the time and know what you are doing. Send them an e-mail with updates on your work progress and any questions of things you are not sure of. You never want to “assume” anything you are not really sure about, and it is always important to know where your supervisor stands on all work-related issues.

8. Find solutions.
Don't go to your boss every time you have a problem. The more problems you can solve independently, the more responsible and valuable you will look. It will impress your boss if you go to them with a tricky issue and then suggest ways to resolve it. Always try to offer solutions; this will give your reputation a boost!


Next week, the final installment in this series will detail how to act the part.
