How to Advance Your Career

Getting ahead professionally takes more than intelligence and hard work. There are several key actions IT professionals can take to stand out in the crowd and rise to the top.
Know What's Expected

The more clarity you have around what your employer, your peers and your team expect of you, the better positioned you are to prioritise, meet and exceed those expectations. Rely on your TEKsystems® team to offer insight and guidance on job opportunities and responsibilities.

Be Great at Your Job

Take pride in your work and continue to grow by pursuing opportunities and academic programmes that require you to stretch beyond your initial comfort zone. Remember to have a positive attitude throughout your job's ups and downs, as this will help you stand out and stay in demand. Talk with your TEKsystems consultant for job guidance or to learn more about our available training and development opportunities.

Remember the End Game

There’s a good reason clients seek support from talented professionals like you: they have a goal they want to achieve. Talk with your TEKsystems team to make sure you understand the business objectives involved in the client’s IT projects and update your CV with the tangible business results you helped the client accomplish. IT leaders are always looking for professionals who can help them better align IT with the business.

Look for Ways to Add Value

An IT department’s job is never done. Stay connected with projects coming up in the pipeline and work with your TEKsystems team to understand where your skills are needed.

Give and Receive Feedback

Honest feedback is necessary for relationships to work well. Seek input from your supervisor and your TEKsystems team, and let us know how we can be a better resource to you. By staying open to all forms of feedback—good and bad—you can continue to grow and improve. We can also help you obtain valuable references that can open future doors.
