Are You Stuck in a Sucky Job?

'When you build relationships with your bosses,' she explains, 'it allows you to highlight your achievements without grand-standing.' And don't overlook more junior employees and interns - mentoring feels good and also may pay off down the line when they grow up and start hiring their own staff.
