Sometimes, a promotion that you think is due to you simply does not happen. This can be quite upsetting, especially if you have worked ridiculously hard to try and make sure that you have done everything that you can do in order to convince your manager that you are the right person for the job. You may even have seen someone else get promoted to the position that you are much better suited for – someone who did not really try that hard for it, and will not value the promotion, the responsibility, and the authority that comes with it. So what can you do the next time a round of promotions comes up? How can you make sure that you are in absolutely the best position to receive that fabulous promotion letter that you are so desperate for?
Well, we know how frustrating it can be for someone like you, who really deserves the sort of promotion that you were ready for, which is why we have put together these four simple steps that you can start to put into action to start impressing your superiors – so that when they are asked who to recommend for the next promotion, your name will be instantly on their lips:
- Improve your look
It’s hard to accept, and it perhaps is not very fair, but it is a truth rarely stated that someone who looks the part will often be given the part. If you are in desperate need of a haircut, then perhaps now is the time to head over to a stylist and get their opinion? Wardrobe a little old school? Then you should take yourself online and bulk buy yourself a wardrobe for the role that you want, not the role that you have. Teeth looking a little gappy? Maybe getting a dental bridge from a reputable dentist is the best way forward. Getting a dental bridge may seem a little intense, just for a promotion, but it will benefit absolutely all of your life, and getting a dental bridge is not that expensive. It’s time to improve your look.
- Improve your knowledge
If there is something that you are not that knowledgeable about, no wonder the powers that be decided not to give you the job. You need to be able to improve your knowledge, and continuously work towards broadening your expertise, so that the next time someone needs a second opinion, you are the person that they go to. You need to establish yourself as an authority in your subject, so that absolutely everyone knows it in the office and with your customers. That will set you apart.
- Demonstrate willingness
No one likes to stay late, no one likes to do the extra work, no one likes to always be the one getting the coffee – and yet being able to demonstrate willingness is often the thing that helps you to stand out when there are multiple people up for the same promotion at work. Gaining people’s good opinion because you are always able to help them out of a fix means that they will feel indebted to you, and that will always help you in the long run. Being able to demonstrate willingness will give you the edge over those who are ready for promotion too.
- Be prepared to do what it takes
If you are really determined to get this particular promotion, then you need to be prepared to do whatever it takes, no matter whether that means sacrifice in other areas of your life – in the end, the compromise will be worth it.
