Custom-Tailored Suits and Impressing Your Boss

There are a number of ways in which you can impress your boss without looking like “that guy.” You know what we are talking about, people often call them teacher's pet or golden child.

You might think that getting to work on time and finishing projects ahead of schedule is one way to attract attention to yourself, and you would be partially right in that. But every job and every boss is unique and just doing what you are supposed to do won’t always land you that promotion and huge raise.

Claymore Brothers, your source for custom-tailored suits, offers ways in which you can impress your boss.

Own What You Do

Whether you are currently enjoying your dream job or if you are working towards a better position, always invest all of you in whatever you do. Passion is difficult to ignore and your boss will be impressed if you are as knowledgeable as can be about your job.

If you have a great idea, don’t be afraid to pitch it to your boss.

Get to Know Them

It is quite difficult to impress somebody you really don’t know, mainly because you don’t know what impresses them.

So if you haven’t done so already, spend some time and energy paying attention to how your boss behaves in certain situations. You will want to look specifically for actions and other things that seem to impress them.

For example, if your boss is impressed by somebody who challenged a decision, then perhaps you need to try that at the appropriate time.

Positive Attitude

You should never underestimate the power of a good attitude and a smile on your face. Spend your time at work avoiding gossip and other negative workplace trivialities and your boss will see you as a man who enhances the office environment.

Eager to Learn

After a few months or years after being on the job, it is not uncommon for employees to lose some enthusiasm. So it is quite easy to set yourself above the others by finding your hunger for learning on the job again. A willingness to learn new things demonstrates that you have ambition.

Help Out When You Can

Without a doubt, there will be plenty of opportunities for you to lend a helping hand when needed. There are also plenty of things that aren’t on the list of things to do that have to be done on a regular basis.

For example, the toner in the printer needs to be changed when it gets empty. Don’t be the guy who hopes somebody else deals with it.

You can also volunteer to do other things like helping others when they are behind schedule, organizing events and helping to run social events.

Make Jokes

If you aren’t comfortable enough to crack a joke at the office, it is a sign of a problem. Be somebody others enjoy being around, especially your boss.

Be a Sponge

Rather than worrying about the impression you are making, focus on learning everything you can and then teaching what you learn to others. Very impressive.

Interact With Others

It is not good enough to just talk to the people you work with, you need to make the effort to know them and interact with them.

Understand the Vision

Your company has a long-term vision and you need to understand what it is and align your work with it.

Ask a Lot of Questions

It is quite common to ask a bunch of questions when you are first hired. But if you want to impress your boss, continue asking questions, even if you have been with the company for years.

Dress to Impress

This is very simple; your success is determined by what you wear. The more professional you look, the more seriously you will be taken and the more you will be noticed.

And a well-dressed employee gets his custom suits at Claymore Brothers.
