Increase Your Value As An Employee

When you are looking for a job, you want to be impressive. You want your resume to stand out, you want your interview to take place without a hitch, you want to leave your potential employers eager to know more about you and eager to bring you on board so your brilliance can be put to work in their company, outshining all their competitors. Of course, as a would-be employee, you're presenting the best of yourself to other people. However, when people have already nabbed the job they were angling for and when they've spent some years in that job or company, they tend to become complacent, thinking that they're already well ensconced in the company already, so they have nothing to worry about.

This is not the kind of thinking that you as a professional should harbor. It is important for you to continuously work on improving yourself to increase your value to your company. Don't take this to mean that you should forever be in job applicant-I-have-to-impress-everybody mode. This only means that you are making yourself a true asset to the company, and at the same time, keeping yourself in the loop and updated on developments in your field, which can keep you from stagnating.

This is actually one way for you to increase your value to your company. Knowing what is happening in your field enables you to keep up with the changes, and ensures that you know what is being discussed when new concepts are being introduced to your company. Understanding that your industry is fluid and that there are improvements and developments occurring all the time keeps you on your toes and even prevents you from getting bored with what you do.

Enhancing your technological know-how is another must. You absolutely do not want to become one of those people who don't know their way around the computer or the Internet. Computer skills are always appreciated and admired, even more so when your knowledge goes way beyond simply checking e-mail and doing stuff on Microsoft Word and Excel.

You should also consider expanding your professional network, even if it's online. Getting in touch with professionals in your field is definitely helpful, and even with those who are in entirely different industries. It helps to be a bridge between them and whoever can provide the services and products that they need. Cultivating relationships opens your eyes to how other people operate in the business and helps you to promote the company you work for as well.
