How to Get Noticed (and Get Hired)
By InPower Women on October 04, 2012
Getting noticed is half the battle to getting hired (or frankly getting anything you want). Here's how to get noticed in a way that feels authentic and is do-able for anyone at any age in any circumstance.
When I was 20 years old, I went to work at Citi for a summer internship. I didn’t really have a clue what I was doing, but I went to the office every day and worked on a basic scenario analysis project. I knew I could spend my summer half-assing my work or really, actually try to learn something. I chose the latter. I went to all the speaker events, every lunch meeting, and all of those happy hours. I had lunch with different co-workers and senior leaders every day. I emailed and followed up with everyone I met. All that persistence paid off — by summer’s end, I had one-on-one meetings with the CFO of Citi, the Chief Diversity Officer of Citi and more than 10 Managing Directors. Me! A 20-year-old intern!
