Careers are not one size fits all. There are many career acceleration strategies that can be customized for your specific career journey.

  1. Regularly update your supervisor – Clear communication in the workplace is essential. Update your supervisor on your progress and achievements so you are top of mind when a promotion becomes available.
  2. Network and connect with leaders and decision makers – It’s not always what you know, who you know is critical to long-term career success. Connecting with the people who can make your promotion possible. 
  3. Take on a stretch project – Take initiative and show that you are willing to learn and contribute by taking on a project outside of your regular job description,
  4. Speak up – Throw your hat in the ring. Let it be known that you are ready, willing, and able to go to the next level. 
  5. Do excellent work – If you want a higher salary or level of responsibility then you must perform well at your current role. 
  6. Have good attendance and punctuality – You will not get promoted if you don’t come to work regularly or if you’re always late. Get noticed for something positive.
  7. Prioritize your work – Ensure that priority tasks are completed first. There is always work to be done, but not all work is equally urgent or important. Know the difference.
  8. Be a team player – Work toward the greater good of the company. Collaborate with and help your colleagues when needed. There is no I in team.
  9. Observe what isn’t working – Whether outdated processes or disruptive or unproductive employees, observe what isn’t working well and stay clear of or do the opposite.
