Do you want a promotion? In this course, we will cover the five main tools to move toward it. Over six weeks, you will progress from targeting the promotion that you want to getting others to support your promotion, to making sure that you are doing work you love once you are promoted. The main goal will be to position yourself so that you become an obvious candidate for your promotion. Specific tools taught will include how to build your network strategically in a comfortable way, how to job craft within your job, how to tell your success stories, and how to best present the fit between what you want and what you have done. The tools covered in this course are useful for getting promoted, moving your career forward, and even getting the job you want. Once you practice these tools, you’ll be able to apply them to a wide range of work issues, including how to compete with people without antagonizing them.
