It can be daunting for anyone trying to climb the career ladder, but you will not be in the dark any longer! Just read these 7 top tips from Baltic for advice on a smooth climb to success.

  1. Be Proactive

Be ahead of the game. Keep your boss constantly updated with your progress rather than them having to come to you! This will make your boss’s life easier and your work flow quicker.

  1. Be generous and help others

If you see someone else struggling, offer your help! They may delegate some of their minor tasks to you. Your boss will then recognise that you are being selfless and always wanting to help your other employees.

  1. Be willing 

Work cannot always be easy and fun. If you are willing to do things that others aren’t, then what is to lose! You are showing your selfless behaviour and hopefully it will be recognised.

  1. Step up

Be early to work, get projects done on time or early but always do them to the best quality. If you show you are motivated, your peers will trust you and request your support with other tasks more frequently.

  1. Present yourself well

Be positive and don’t complain, no one likes negativity in the work place! Be professional in both how you look and how you act, and always do the right thing. If you don’t act professionally, you can’t expect to be put in a professional situation.

  1. CPD Training

Continuous Professional Development helps you keep your knowledge and skills up-to-date. Completing CPD helps you to build your confidence and credibility, and allows you to showcase your achievements positively throughout the company. CPD will help you to specialise within specific areas making you an all-round amazing employee.

  1. Keep track of your accomplishments

You don’t have to brag! Letting your peers know that you have just completed one of your tasks shows that you can control your workload and you can then achieve bigger and more important tasks.
