Millions of people are unhappy with their current jobs. They either do not feel like they are properly appreciated or feel that they could do much better. A recent USA Today poll found that only one in ten people actually feel important in their job. In actuality, the number may even be lower than that, as it does not take into account people who aspire to being promoted or feel that they could perform better at their current position.
Many people agonize over whether they should and how they can go about landing the promotion that will allow them to feel better about their job and their position in the world. In this groundbreaking book, you will discover not only how to move from desire to action, but how to pass from each step to the next without making any major mistakes. The process of earning and then requesting a promotion can be a complex one, meaning you need the best possible resources at your disposal before you make any decisions or have any conversations.
In this book, you will learn how to start analyzing your own performance at work. Are you as productive as your peers? Do you have a reputation that you must live up to or overcome to be in the right position to request that promotion? What do you need to do to earn the promotion that you know you deserve? These are all vital questions that every employee must be able to ask and find the answers to in order to successfully get that promotion and this book will provide solutions to each and every one of them.
Through hours of interviews with hiring managers and professionals, we have been able to compile a complete guide to everything your employer looks for when deciding whether you deserve a promotion. Learn which traits your boss values highest, what days of the week and times of day are best to ask for a promotion, and when not to approach your boss. Learn how to have the conversation and prepare yourself in terms of job performance before you ask for the raise. Learn what you can do after you receive a promotion to continue your rise to the top, and in a special chapter on the top ten reasons promotions are denied, learn why it is that so many people are rejected.
If you are seeking a promotion or the next major step in your career, it is vital that you know what to expect, what your employers look for, and what to avoid doing in order to land that new position. This book guides you through every step of the process and ensures you are ready on day one to pick up your new position and run with it.
