Get It Done On The Job

Promote offers a strategy and tips for getting promoted at your government job.  Promotions are made much as the jobs are filled in government jobs, through an examination process that may include one or more of the following tests - written test, oral interview, and performance test.

Here's our step-by-step strategy for getting promoted.   We've included links to valuable resources to put you on the fast track.

  1. Develop a Promotion Plan
  2. Learn From Others
  3. Get It Done on the Job

  1. Who's the person most qualified to perform a particular job?  If you wanted a surgeon and all else being equal, wouldn't you want the surgeon who has actually performed the surgery the most times successfully?  The workplace isn't any different.  The most qualified person to fill a job is somebody who has already performed that job.
  2. Volunteer for more difficult and responsible assignments particularly if those assignments are similar to those required in your promotional opportunities. 
  3. Get the job done and get it done right the first time. Consistency and effective work performance are valued by all supervisors.  In addition, even if the assignments aren't directly related to your promotional opportunities, volunteer and build your management's trust and confidence in you.  That trust and confidence will earn you more opportunities to perform the necessary duties and knowledges.

    The Brand Called You, Fast Company, Big companies understand the importance of brands.  Today, in the Age of the Individual, you have to be your own brand. Here's what it takes to the CEO of Me Inc.
  5. Learn from your mistakes and successes.  Regardless of what you do and where you work, you'll make mistakes.  Learn from them.   You'll also succeed more and more often as you learn from your mistakes.  Learn from your successes.
