Thanks for posting this! I bookmarked this as a reminder that self-advocacy is a must. I was passed over promotions at my old job because I never talked about the hills and mountains I had to overcome daily. I think, my supervisors didn't know exactly what I did or even how I did my job. They just knew I made magic happen. But I took the hard lessons I learned from my old job and tried to market myself more at my new job. I took the time to get to know my co-workers and see them for who they are. Anyway, I think you're right, the best way to get ahead is to connect with the people around you, observe them, and then reflect on ways you can be relevant to the company.
