Why is it that some people get promoted, and others don’t? What is it about what they do that makes them get that promotion? Is it because they’ve been at the company for a long time?
You also have to ask yourself, do you want that promotion? A lot of the times, promotions don’t necessarily mean a salary increase, it’s just a change of job title.
How many times have you noticed that that the person being promoted is completely unqualified for the position? For me, it’s too many to count.
According to research from Gallup, companies fail to make the right person manager 82% of the time , so obviously there is a problem on both ends.
Many people think that the only way to get promoted is by putting in overtime, to show the company that you’re a “go-getter.” Show up early and leave late.
I’m here to tell you that that’s not the case at all.
First, let’s go through a few reasons why people don’t get promoted. Then, I’ll list some things to keep in mind when trying to get a job promotion.
