But at the same time you feel as though you have more to offer than you are currently doing? Getting promoted is somewhat of an art. We will teach you the steps you need to take in order to snag that promotion. The first thing you need to do to get a promotion is demonstrate your loyalty. If you truly enjoy working for the company let them know that. This can help them to see not only value in your work, but in your character as well. Gain more insight on how to show your loyalty in our Be Loyal section.

The next step you need to take to be considered for a promotion is to speak up about your career goals. Your boss may think you are completely content working your current job and may think that you are not interested in taking on additional responsibilities. Learn more about how to express your desire for a promotion in our Speak up About Career Goals section.

If you want to be considered for a new job role it is important to seek additional training. This training can help to set you apart when it comes to your coworkers, giving you an edge when it comes to promoting someone. Learn how to get the training you need to get noticed in our Additional Training Section.

To beat out the competition you need to have an upper hand. Many people are skilled at the job they currently do, which can make it tough for employers to know who to choose when it comes to promotion time. If you take on extra work and collaborate with new people you will be shown as a valuable resource in the office. Get promoted using the tools found in our Take On More Responsibilities section.

Every company has a slightly unique way of choosing who gets promoted and who doesn’t. Many businesses also employ different strategies when it comes to grooming someone to become promoted. That is why it is crucial to understand how your company’s specific structure is organized. Learn how to work the system in our Understand The Company’s Structure section.

Using the tools found in the sections above you will be celebrating your promotion in no time.
