Here are some of the best ways to move up in 2015:
1: Learn a completely new skill. Take risks. Challenge yourself. Go outside your comfort zone. Learn web design, for example. Study a language. Become a public speaker. You’ll be fresher and more interesting to employers as you expand your skills and range of knowledge.
2: Commit to one-on-one networking. Too often we think of networking as something that occurs only in groups. The interaction may begin through a friend, colleague, neighbour or acquaintance. However or wherever it occurs, be sure to nurture that contact if you see work opportunities. Find out what that person’s latest projects are. What his goals are. What she’s building.
3: Become more visible externally. It’s always smart to do this within your current organisation, but it’s even smarter to commit to stepping outside of your current four walls. Seeking and achieving a leadership role externally isn’t as hard as it may seem: The muscle gets stronger as you use it.
There are multiple opportunities to stretch yourself professionally if you look for them. —Yahoo Finance
