True professionals usually do not make a special effort to be noticed. They give their heart and assume responsibly in a task and do not worry about the attitude of their colleagues, the amount of salary or extra minutes spent at the workplace - this is what makes them professionals. Professional is, first of all, a personality.
Flaunting their talents and chasing someone else's respect serves no purpose. Rather, it will cause disaffection and mockery. True recognition of the peers can only be earned respecting yourself and honoring your professional obligations. Respect is showed to strong and independent people, and serious, knowledgeable and responsible workers.
In fact, psychological maturity is even more important than having a lot of experience and knowledge. Learn to maintain your personal independence, and keep your distance, then you will be treated seriously. At work, you need to work, not to make friends.
Therefore, instead of wasting time and worrying of non-recognition of your professionalism, direct your energy in a constructive direction - become mature and think about how you will do a better job.
