Your Current Job: How Do You Stack Up?
A common mistake is relying on your annual review for feedback
regarding job performance. These evaluations are sporadic
at best and non-existent at worst. Its the rare manager
who fully reviews your work for the entire evaluation period
and provides constructive direction for how you can improve.
Its not that your manager doesnt care; he or
she just doesnt have the time to devote to a full-scale
evaluation of staff performance. Though disappointing, this
fact presents a golden opportunity for the conscientious worker.
By evaluating your own performance on a frequent basis (every
3 months or so), not only will you proactively address any
areas in need of improvement, youll also be in a very
strong position when your formal review does occur.
