Professor Jeffrey Pfeffer shares three tips for how to get promoted at work:
1. Figure out what your boss actually wants. You should check on what and how he or she is evaluating you. Don’t assume anything.
2. Make sure your work performance and accomplishments are visible to your boss. Your superiors have their own jobs and lives and are not spending all of their time thinking about you and your career.
3. Build relationships with people inside your organization. Your success in getting hired, promoted, or a raise depends on the quality of your networks and relationships with a large number of people inside and outside your company.
