Be a Fixer

Don’t go to your boss with a problem until you’ve brainstormed at least two ways to possibly make it right. You’ll show that you can identify issues, that you’re confident enough to bring them to her attention and that you're comfortable taking initiative to fix problems — all things that scream “I’m ready for a promotion!”
