You’re young and just starting out in your chosen career and the idea of being top dog may seem years and tons of hard work away from ever happening. While it’s true that most women don’t go from entry level to CEO overnight, there are some things you can do to get there a whole lot faster than the other girls. If you’re aiming for the top rung, here is advice from career experts that should help you get there.
1. Stay Positive No Matter What
People who run companies want caring and kind people to work for them so above all else, stay positive. Even when a tough assignment or a snarky co-worker is threatening your zen, it’s important to keep your attitude in the right place so that you are seen as someone who is pleasant to work with and is nice to others. This might not sound like much, but it will certainly get you noticed. And it doesn’t mean being a doormat so don’t mistake a positive attitude with being walked all over.
