Did your earlier push for promotion from your current job fail? Whatever the cause is, you can take three steps to engineer a brighter tomorrow for your career.
First – take an honest inventory of yourself as a candidate for promotion. What can you offer in a higher-level job, such as competencies, skills, judgment, and, most of all, profit-producing behaviors, to put yourself on a fast track with a promotion every couple years?
Second – conceptualize a plan by figuring out how you can magnify your strengths and correct any deficiencies.
Third – work your plan by drafting a statement with your persuasive facts onscreen or on paper.
