5 Strategies to Get Promoted Now

Are you languishing in the same position for years now? Here are tips on how to get promoted now!

We know the struggle to climb up the corporate ladder these days. Yes, it may really take time but if others are getting promoted before you do, then they must be doing something that you are not doing. Here are five fast tips on how to up your chances. 

1. Get a job in a promotion-friendly company.
Choose companies who are known to prioritize employees first for new openings. Larger firms and up-and-coming firms also offer more opportunities because there are more positions being opened.

2. Get noticed by doing your job well.

We’re not saying you brag ‘til kingdom come but don’t be secretive with your accomplishments. Sell yourself by giving suggestions or your opinions during meetings. Make sure your boss knows what you have accomplished. 

3. Maintain good relationships
Avoid conflicts with coworkers. To be an effective leader, you should be someone they can look up to and respect. Being likable also makes you more memorable when new positions crops up. 

4. Don’t be afraid to ask 
Ask and you shall receive and in many ways that is true. Set an appointment and ask your boss what it will take to get a promotion. With this, you accomplish two things. You let your boss know you want a promotion and you’ll get to prove yourself by taking on harder challenges. 

5. Volunteer to take on more responsibilities 
Whenever a project needs more people, volunteer your services. It will mean over time but it will be worth it. Not only will it put your name out there, you will learn a new thing, maybe develop a new skill, and you’ll be in the good graces of more people.
