Communicate your successes
Are you doing a great job? The more successful you are, the more likely you’ll be noticed. Do people know about your specific contributions? As well as doing a good job, for HR professionals, it’s vital your good work is being recognised both internally and externally.
Search firms regularly ask people for recommendations of who they think are experts in market or the best person they have ever worked for. What matters is what other people think of you, so make sure your colleagues, former colleagues, and competitors think highly of you. Don’t be shy about communicating your successes – appropriately.
