How to get a promotion in a year’s time?
First, everyone wants a promotion. Whether you work in a small company or big company, getting a promotion is like winning a lottery. However, how can you earn a promotion in just one year? There are tips on how you can score a promotion from your boss in just one short year of work.
The key is to make your presence known to everyone, especially your boss, obviously. Try to find ways to work with people that can help you reach your goal. If you know that certain people have the power to select candidates for promotions, be sure to keep in touch with these people and work with them, whenever possible.
Your boss is the one who will make the ultimate decision on who is going to be promoted. It is your job to help your boss to achieve the company’s goals so focus on that and impress your boss on how you can help out to make sure success is in his hands.
If you want to be a manager, start thinking like a manager. Not that you should boss people around, but you should perform tasks related to a manager so that your boss can see how well you can manage people in the company. Once you are able to say “I am ready for this job, I just need to make it official”, then you are well on your way towards a promotion.
Let us assume that your plan doesn’t work out the way you want. You are not getting the promotion you deserve even after more than a year working towards that direction, perhaps it is time to explore other options. There are other career options for you if you want to start a new career. Don’t be afraid of new changes.
