    You mentioned the following: “going the extra mile to make her work exceptional.” I would like to add that I believe there is more than this when promoting oneself. I would add the following:

    • let others, especially your boss, know your career asperations
    • develop and mature the skills needed to lead
    • build a network of like minded individuals
    • build a network of people who have skill sets that differ from your own

    Hard work is only once part of the puzzle.
