Knowing how to positively differentiate yourself from others can be a key factor when looking to get hired from an externship, seeking a promotion or just a new job in general.

Whether in school or your workplace here are some helpful tips to keep in mind.

1.       Ask questions. This may seem a cliché but the more questions you ask the more engaged you seem.

2.       Smile. Smiling and having a positive attitude will always be noticed.

3.       Take on more tasks. Granted you don’t want to take more tasks than you can handle but if you are open to more opportunities not only will you gain more experience your employer will take notice.

4.       Genuinely care about what you are doing. You can fake it for a while but unless you believe it eventually you will be gloomy and it will show.
