The old business rule for success goes:
Don't just do the job you were hired to do, but do the job you WANT to be hired to do!
In other words, be professional, accept challenging assignments, offer to help other teams out, go above and beyond your job description, make yourself visible to the bosses/higher ups, come in early, work late, complete reports ahead of time and dot your i's and cross your t's. DRESS the part of the job you want! Play "office politics," check the company website for new job postings frequently, and apply for those jobs you would like to assume! And when your employee review comes around, make it clear that you want more responsibility and why! :o)
