Get Credit for Your Work – Make sure your boss knows what you’ve accomplished.

Volunteer and Help Out – Put in the extra effort without being asked. Seek out tasks you can do particularly well.

Put on a Happy Face – Nobody likes a sourpuss. Keep your negative comments about the employer, bosses, and coworkers to yourself.

Understand Your Boss – Focus on work that helps your boss. Bosses have bosses too, and it’s smart to help them look good.

Be Conventional – This is a good time to examine your work practices and habits. Go easy on the perfume or cologne, and don’t dress up at Halloween unless everyone else does. You don’t want to be invisible; just make sure you’re not a distraction or an annoyance.
