Be a Proactive Problem Solver

Completing your assigned tasks is key. But once you’ve fulfilled your obligations, go above and beyond by showing initiative. Instead of asking what you should do next, try pitching several relevant suggestions to your manager in order to show your value. Show everyone that you can think on your own without needing to be micromanaged each day.
