Act As If

There’s an old saying that is still relevant: “Dress for the job you want, not the job you have.” Things like dressing like a boss, being professional like a boss, putting in the hours like a boss (no racing to the elevator at 4:58 p.m.) and aligning your work goals with those of the company like a boss will show the higher ups that you are indeed boss material.
