20 Things Learned from My 20 Years Working in Corporate America

on Tue, 04/12/2016 - 13:42

1.     Become known as a problem solver. Deliver the hard work, slacking will not get you anywhere. Replace, “I’ll do my best” with “I’ll take care of it” or “I’ll handle it” or “You can count on me”.  Make sure as many people as possible, in addition to your boss, knows you are a problem solver. Let those that might be your boss in the future know you are a problem solver.

2.     Moving sideways can help you climb the corporate ladder.  When it comes to hireability Breadth of knowledge, experience and skills trumps depth.
