Increasing your visibility
There are many ways you can increase your visibility at work and improve your career prospects.
Volunteer to help with events, join groups or take on extra responsibilities. Be eager to help out and gain experience - this can help you get noticed and expand your network. Take on work which is different or above your pay grade - and acquire skills which will stand you in good stead when you apply for promotion. Consider becoming a union representative - this can help to raise your profile and broaden your knowledge base.
