How to get a promotion at work
If a person copes well with his duties in a certain position, this does not always mean that he will be as good at coping with them in a higher position. Everyone has a certain limit, which is difficult enough to cross. If your management is confident that your limit is the position you occupy at the moment, then it will be difficult to convince him. In this case, it is better to look for a new job. An indication that the management is following this opinion is the situation in which for several yearsrise received in your department almost all employees, except for you, although you worked at the same level.
Increase must be earned. Therefore, it is more profitable to ask for it after the recently completed successful project, rather than "from scratch". If you can competently justify your participation in a particular project, point out the importance of your role in it, make it clear that such and even more complex projects are already on your side, thenrise you can get it for sure.
Do not forget that it is difficult to achieve an increase, just "drifting". The increase is usually received by the most initiative and active workers, often these qualities are even more important than high qualification. Show the leadership that you are not just a performer, but an employee who is able to solve problems, to offer non-ordinary moves. This can be demonstrated even in small positions. In addition, initiative and activity will be regarded as loyalty to the company, the desire to work in it and to benefit it, which is also quoted.
Asking for a raise is necessary competently, having prepared for this in advance. If you are worried before talking with management, then try to write what you say, read, think about how this or that phrase can be perceived. Make a small speech. Be sure to talk about raising the management in person, not by phone. With a negative answer or an indefinite "think", do not be discouraged, let alone promise to quit your job immediately: sometimes management can be ready for such a turn of events. In addition, you will not be hindered by the attempt to repeat the conversation in about three months.
