💼 Get an inside look at the promotion process and learn how to advance your career.
Are you aiming for a higher position or thinking about getting promoted to the next level at work? You're not alone. Many are seeking new opportunities for career growth, and securing a promotion at work is considered essential.
Earning a promotion will give you a higher salary, but assuming a more important role in your company will help improve your skills and increase your value at work.
💪 I can help you improve your career and help you get promoted at work.
I'm B.J. Schone, and for the last 15+ years, I have worked in Human Resources (HR) at several large, notable companies, and I've been a manager for 10 of those years.
I've written this guide with your overall career development in mind. It is a must-read to find out the general "requirements" for promotion and it can help you with nearly any professional opportunity in the future.
💎 Increase your chances of getting promoted - today!
I regularly speak with other managers and HR professionals about employees' performance and growth. We are the ones that decide who gets promoted. This means that I have first-hand knowledge of the characteristics and behaviors that decision-makers value most, and I know what factors lead to a promotion. 😉
Here's what you'll learn to to help you level up your career:
- Busting common myths (i.e., it's only the people who work the most hours that move up, it's all about who you know, etc.)
- How people perceive you (e.g., the impact of your work, your skills, your potential, how you share your successes and failures, etc.)
- Building strategic (and genuine!) relationships with your manager, your HR team, stakeholders, other leaders
- Understanding how your company measures success (e.g., goals, wins, etc.), and how your work directly aligns with it
- Understanding the promotion process, including timelines, personalities involved, criteria used, and where you stack up on all of the above
- How all of this works at small vs. medium vs. large companies and in different industries
- Understanding the culture at your company and how it can help advance your career
- Dead ends, danger zones, and bias: When you need to take a hard look at your situation and potentially leave
- Finally, how to use all this to build your promotion plan or roadmap to getting a promotion! 🚀💼💪💎
