Seeking a Promotion to Management? Do These 10 Things to Increase Your Chances
A 2015 Gallup poll showed that 35 percent of Americans are satisfied with their chances for a promotion. On the flipside, that leaves nearly two-thirds of employees dissatisfied with their ability to move up the ranks.
If you're seeking a promotion to management, here are 10 things to do to increase your chances of success.
1. Select the right company.
Each company establishes their own promotion policies, so choosing a company that has a "promote from within" culture can be the best way to go. Ideally, you'll discover if this is the case during the hiring and interviewing process. These programs may also be called manager in training, professional development, or leadership rotational. Here is a pretty extensive list of companies offering these opportunities.
2. Master your current position(s).
Before you can expect to be promoted, you have to master your current position(s). Strive to become the resident expert early on. Ask questions, establish a clear understanding of the job's duties and expectations, and get to work.
3. Take initiative to go above and beyond expectations.
