How Do I Get A Promotion?

How Do I Get A Promotion?

Share

Dear CC: My immediate supervisor left for another job, and I'm next in line. But it's been two weeks, and I've heard nothing. I've always gotten good reviews, so why haven't they called me in yet?

Good things do not happen to those who wait. Waiting happens to those who wait. CC has met some bosses who will not even consider giving a promotion unless you go in and ask for it. The approach shouldn't be, "So, my turn now, eh?" but rather, "I know Brandi has moved on. I believe I'm totally capable of handling her responsibilities, and here's why. Plus, I have a suggestion on how my duties can be picked up." Be ready to make your case and check around to see what the salary should be. If you do get the offer, you'll probably have to accept the hometown discount, but CC believes it's OK to counter, "I know this job would pay X if you had to go outside the company. I'm not asking for X, but I believe I deserve Y." Good luck.
