According to Steve Langerud, director of professional opportunities at DePauw University, letting people take credit for your work is one of the best ways to succeed and advance in your career. (Full disclosure: Langerud is a glass-half-full type of person.)"

The advice Langerud offers in the column includes, "Your value as a selfless team member sky rockets when you take one for the team."
