4. Be Reliable
In addition to being proactive and making every opportunity count on the job, being a reliable employee goes hand-in-hand. These three components make up a prospective upper-level employee. Being reliable with the timing and consistency of your work is a standout characteristic to have, since many entry-level workers allow their impatience about advancing get to them (and it shows!). Play your part the best you know how and remember that your small part makes a big difference, and being reliable in the job you have to do proves that you value what’s given to you.
