    Take on Challenging Projects

    When you demonstrate the eagerness—and capability—to pull off difficult projects, you prove yourself to those who matter.
 

Here's a not-so-well-kept secret about work: It's too easy to sink into the abyss of anonymity. Some people prefer this because they think it's the best way to hold on to a job—by not making waves. But experts say those who take intelligent risks will better themselves by rising above the crowd, especially if they take advantage of the following 12 tactics to advance their careers. After all, there are many people in your department who are essentially competing for the same kinds of opportunities, but only one person will get that breakthrough assignment or promotion. The ability to demonstrate personal initiative remains the common theme for all these takeaways: You can't just say you're a self-starter; you have to prove it—every day. It's also essential to pay attention to the little things that command positive attention from influential managers and those in the C-suite. The tips here have been compiled from a variety of resources, including CareerBliss.com, LinkedIn and AskMen.com.
