How to Promote Yourself at Work

Self-promotion is important to career success. Don't simply wait for someone to notice you and decide to promote you or give you a raise. You need to be active since if no one sees how much you contribute to the company, you will continue to miss the promotion opportunities and raises.

Create your opportunities:

Look for opportunities to improve things in your company. Try to pick a situation where you can apply your experience and skills to solve the problem. Write a memo to the manager of that area, outlining the improvement opportunity you've discovered and highlighting how you can use your skills to resolve the problem.

Don't wait for your organization to discover the same need first.


Volunteering is another way to get people to notice you while expanding your knowledge in critical areas of the company. Volunteering also provides a great way to earn a reputation for being cooperative and for going beyond the minumum of what is asked of you. These are qualities that make you appear worthy of a promotion. While you are volunteering you may even discover an opprtunity for improvement in the company that you have the skills and experience to resolve.

Record Keeping:

Record everything that you do to enhance the company's performance. Note the work you did, the result of your actions, and the impact you had. Look at everything you do - your key accomplishments are sometimes actions that you take for granted.
