How do you raise your profile at work? 
I want to learn more about how savvy BAs raise their profile in their organization. I think most Business Analysts are working really hard to contribute to the success of their organizations, but I'm curious how they get noticed doing it too (especially by those higher in the organizational structure). How do you call attention to your good work and ultimately get promoted?

Re: How do you raise your profile at work? 

In truth, what I have found is that (even though maybe not what many people want to hear) is working the extra hours and just really putting yourself out that 10% extra above others to stand out. Turning up early an hour to get that report to be better than anyone else's. Staying an hour late to add extra meaty content to reports. Just going the extra mile basically. Once you rise up in the organisation then took your foot off the pedal a bit. Sometimes about pure hard work and standing out from the crowd. It often works.

Taking up additional responsibilities (like filling in for a manager when they are on leave, coaching newly formed team) - will not only make it look like you can effectively perform that role, you can even get promoted since you have proved yourself.

Clearly, the most important step in getting a job is being selected for an interview, and a key part in that process is having a resume that stands out from others.   For many people, creating a good enough resume is an obstacle in achieving this, and so one way to address this problem may be to get a professional to create one for you.

It may sound routine, but the importance of operational decisions cannot be underestimated. After all, not a day goes by without even the smallest business making dozens, if not hundreds of operational decisions that may affect the bottom line. Elevate these to large scale companies and we are talking thousands, if not millions of actions that impa...
