Huffington Post recently wrote a piece called, “You Are Your Own Best Marketer.” It’s a good reminder that you — and only you — are in charge of your own career success, whether you like it or not. And we’re not just talking about the job search.

Every move you make at work is a chance to send a message about yourself to your coworkers and your boss. If you turn in a project a few hours late, you’ve delivered a message about yourself. If you deliver a project a few hours early, you’ve delivered a very different message. We’re only talking about a few hours difference here but it’s the difference between being perceived as going above and beyond and being perceived as not following through on your word.

It can be exhausting to think about your career this way but it’s true — every action you take during the work day paints a picture of the kind of worker you are. What message do you want to send to your coworkers and to your boss? And how will that message affect your career success?

Here are a couple tips from the article that will help you send the right message: First, think before you speak or act. Secondly, know that your actions matter not only before and after a project, but also during a project. Read the full article at Huffington Post.
