We’ve all started out on the bottom rung of the totem pole when it comes to making the supreme cut for that top dog senior manager title. I can recall the countless years proving myself as a landlord for my father’s property management company where I pushed myself to the limits of my working ability each and every weekend. As a former apartment manger (now copywriter), I am driven by those that I look up too. More importantly; I’ve learned that what matters most to higher-ups, managers, and senior vice presidents are RESULTS.
Plain and simple, your work mentor wants to know that you are progressing in your ability as a worker, and also that the department will meet it financials this quarter. With that in mind, your job should be to BLOW THEIR HEADS THROUGH THE ROOF by staying in the office at least till 6. The next time you think about dipping out a little early to meet a friend, just remember that Dad pays your phone bill.
