So, your appraisal is due in a few months' time, and you are nervous and anxious about it. When you are overlooked for promotion and a high salary can hit your confidence and self-esteem. Is there something you can do about it? Perhaps, you are missing key secrets that we have briefly discussed in this article.

  1. Be Proactive

    You need to be proactive at work. Proactive does not mean you have to work for 12-14 hours a day. Usually, you can find 2 categories of people at work. One category is those that do their job and make a move. The next category is those that take an active interest in the projects and affairs of the company or firm. They show interest and keep asking their higher-ups. This way, they create the impression that they are genuinely interested and passionate about their field. 

    Here are some ways to be proactive:

    • Take some initiatives
    • Tell your team if you are free and can help them 
    • Share your suggestions 
    • Suggest new team initiatives
    • Recommend methods to improve the efficiency in the current project

    It is very crucial for beginners, especially. If you are starting your career, then you must take it upon you to be proactive in your job role. Like they say, the first impression is the best impression. 

  2. Keep your manager informed

    A significant blunder done by many employees is that they do not keep their manager or immediate supervisor informed on their activities. Hence, during the time of appraisal, they receive negative feedback from the higher-ups. Perhaps, you are shy or do not have the time to meet your manager and talk to them. The best way you can do that is through official email or message on what you have done for the day and what you plan to do the next day. 

  3. Set up regular check-ins with your manager or supervisor

    You must communicate regularly with your manager or supervisor. During the meetings, you can discuss your performance, how you can improve, and any concerns about your work.

  4. Firm contribution 

    To get noticed by higher-ups, you must contribute out of your way. Merely completing your work on time is not enough these days. You need to participate in conferences, meetings, exhibitions, and project launches. 

    You can do that by: 

    • Taking part as an organizing committee for any event.
    • Research on white papers and prepare research papers.
    • Help your firm develop in few areas. 
    • Help the management team to come up with new proposals. 

These were the 4 secrets on how to get a high salary job. So if you have recently joined a new firm or you want to make an impact where you work, then you know what to do.
