Every now and then there is a break from the routine, the humdrum, the everyday.  These moments of intense activity or public limelight are your moments to enhance your career. 
They can be:

·                    The initial selection interview

·                    Your first day
·                    Running a presentation
·                    Running an exhibition
·                    Chairing an important meeting
·                    Being put in charge of staff training
·                    Handling a crisis
·                    Negotiating with the unions
·                    Attending a Health and Safety committee meeting
·                    Being a first aider
·                    Organizing the staff function
·                    Being responsible for the visit of a dignitary, celebrity or royalty
·                    Editing the newsletter
·                    Dealing with the media
·                    Supervising the office relocation

A lot of people, when first presented with such an option, will be filled with dismay and horror.  ‘Oh, not’, they cry, ‘Not running the exhibition stand at the NEC this year.  Why me.  Oh Lord, why me?’

You, on the other hand, know this rule – this is a career enhancing moment and you had better take the opportunity to shine.  There are no bad jobs, only bad attitude to jobs.

“THERE ARE NO BAD JOBS, ONLY BAD ATTITUDE TO JOBS”.

Always look for ways of making such jobs better, more interesting, slicker, and quicker and realize that they are providing you with the wherewithal to shine.
