Are you a hard worker--or a smart one?
CareerBuilder asked bosses how to get their attention. One said a hard worker stays up all night to get the job done, but the smart worker delegates or finds a way to do it in half the time.
One working coach said the best team members helped other members.
Attitude is Number 1, said another.
A third liked people who were ahead of the curve—anticipated problems and took care of them.
Or—come to the boss when you are through with something and say, “Anything else?”
Another tip: Fit in with the culture. This earns you respect and trust.
All good—not being a pain in the rear and showing up on time is also appreciated in most organizations.
