Tips to help you land a promotion
When thinking about the next step in your career, consider these tips.
Track your wins
Having evidence that you’re qualified for a more advanced position can go a long way. Start gathering a portfolio of your best work—especially work where the company benefits. Show projects that have been successful and the praise you’ve received.
Be a team player
Strong references from your peers and your manager can reassure the person hiring you. Make yourself an indispensable part of a team: Volunteer to take on tasks, show initiative where you see improvements, and avoid gossip and other self-destructive behaviors.
Start the conversation
Assuming you’ve established yourself as a reliable, high-achieving, drama-free employee, let management know that you’re interested in moving up. This takes some humility.
