Promotions don’t go to those who sit and wait for it to happen. You have to take the bull by the horns as they say. Here are some tips on how you can get a promotion at work.
- Show that you care about the company. Bosses and managers usually care about the health of the company, but employees rarely do. So ask your superiors how the business is going and ask them what you personally can do to make it better.
- Do something outside of your realm. Present ideas to your project manager and show them that you are capable of doing far more than what is required of you.
- Show passion and dedication at work Don’t be a passive employee who shows up, does his/her 8 hours and leaves.
- Ask for it. Sometimes that’s all you have to do. This will at least put you on their radar in case a new position opens up in the future.
