These are some good tips! If you are hoping to promote from within, you might consider what Dr. Murdock says:Once a month, ask your boss for 5 minutes of his time. Then ask each of these questions, and pause betweeneach question to wait for an answer before moving to the next one. 1) What am I doing that you want me to stop doing? 2) What am I not doing that you would like for me to start doing? 3) What would you like for me to change? And one other thought: Make a difference where you are! If you are not making a difference where you are, then why should a supervisor believe you'll make a difference in the place you want to be?
That is funny, the only promotion at most places is walking out the door!
Very true, If you are the right age and right ethnicity you will get promoted other wise, work on acquiring the skills you will need for your next position some where else within your present job.
