Business Management Courses – How to Get That Promotion

January 9, 2018 / Sharnie Carter

Think it’s about time you got that promotion?
Yeah… we do too. You deserve it!
But it’s not as straight forward as just deserving it. You need to work for it.
And you may think that you have been working towards it by simply doing your day-to-day tasks at a good standard. But this is not enough. Most people who you work with will be doing the same, so you need to learn how to stand out from the crowd.
Having a stand-alone qualification is not enough as many people will be in your position with the exact same qualification. So you need something more to work your way to the top.
Here are a few tips that we think would really help:

  • Ask for it

If you think you deserve a promotion, then ask for one! Promotions aren’t always given to you on a plate. You need to bring it to your employer’s attention.
BUT be sure to have supporting evidence as to why you deserve it, so they know you are a serious candidate.

  • Take an interest in the company

Although it is important to ensure that you are skilled and working to your best ability in your area, it helps to know a bit about all aspects of your company.
Showing an interest proves to your employer that you are dedicated and passionate. Employers want to promote someone who is going to beneficial in the long-term; not someone who will leave at the next available opportunity.

  • Further your knowledge and education

This is valuable for a number of reasons:

  1. You will have more knowledge within your chosen field and therefore be better at your job
  2. It will show your superior that you are dedicated and passionate about your job
  3. There will be more relevant experience on your CV for any future employment and promotions
