"Personality can open doors but only character can keep them open." ~ Elmer G. Letterman

"The best job goes to the person who can do the job without coming up with excuses or passing the buck" ~ Napolean Hill

What about politics?

Political savvy is something you can not learn in school, however, plays an important role in business success.

"Man is by nature a political animal." ~ Aristotle

Take control
It is important to note that you are responsible for your own career. Do not expect the Human Resources Department to plan your career. In fact, do not expect anyone else to worry about it either.

There have been times in my career when someone has taken an interest in my class, however, has always been in their interest to do so. Remember, companies are in business primarily to make money.

Dress for success
There is a clear distinction between the dress Manager of a President, a Vice-President, a Vice President, and the District. You should dress just a cut above its current level.

Above all, have the integrity

"If you have integrity, nothing else matters. If you do not have integrity, nothing else matters." ~ Alan Simpson

You will find that the concentration of integrity increases the higher you go in an organization.

Remember who you work for

Always support the Company
It is true that where your treasure is, will your heart be also. There are many opportunities on a daily basis to bash your employer. Resist these opportunities. Note that (1) has chosen the company, (2) that pay you, and (3) you can leave if you want. The company leaders will not be impressed by his ability to complain.

Your boss and your boss's boss Look Good
As a practical matter, most likely working to take the job of his boss. Hopefully your boss will be promoted, leaving a vacancy. If your boss is not going anywhere, then the next level will have a big impact on your next position.

Who are the leaders of the company?
Find out the history of the company executives. What career did they take? Most likely, they will value the credentials above others. Note the great characters of the company and connect to them. If possible, find a way to work for them. Otherwise, establish a network with the greatest number of them. The best option is to ask one of them is his mentor. You will be surprised how many people are interested in helping in this regard.

Learn the rules

"Whoever gossips to you will gossip about you." ~ Spanish Proverb

Be careful what you write or say. Assume that everything you write or say will be read or heard by everyone in the company. E-mail makes it easy to respond emotionally. Before responding to an irritating e-mail, take a minute to calm down, then type the email. If you have a tendency to send harsh messages, save a draft and review it sometime later to make sure that the tone is business appropriate.

A corollary of this principle is Happy Hour - do not go! There is a huge risk of saying something I should not say, out of control, or simply being in the wrong place at the wrong time. You should steer clear of office politics. Do not say anything bad about anyone, ever.

Arrive early and leave late, but not too late. You want the reputation of an employee, but not one that can not do their job. This principle also applies to work at home. In the long run, you want to have a life outside of work. Maintaining a balance between work / life will remain committed to its work, therefore, more productive.

Find out what your boss wants and Deliver. Regardless of your personality, relationships, or it looks good, must be productive. For your boss, do what they want, no matter how silly it may seem to you. For example, I had a boss who wanted to know how many Dairy Queens between Dallas and Houston was a yogurt in particular.

I always say, "Yes!" an application of leadership. For your boss, there are ways to provide better solutions without damaging the relationship.

"As long as is required of you." ~ General Patton

Give people credit. Do not take the credit for himself. This is important for a variety of reasons. First, you need people to help you do things. Second, when people recognize people who work there, you get the credit. Third, what to do.

Conclusion

When it comes to his career

1. You are responsible

2. Remember who you work for

3. Learn the rules

I've done some exploration and a few people say that a decent instruction constructs your character. I'm exploring this AssignmentCorp since I'm a somewhat calm individual, however I put a great deal of thought into everything, and I'm an extraordinary audience, I don't care for being quiet!
