How to Get Yourself Promoted

1. Develop a Bond With Your Boss: 

Building a positive relationship with your manager or boss will allow them to think of you for future opportunities. This doesn’t mean you need to be best friends, but establish the type of connection where you feel comfortable to approach them and hold a friendly conversation. Let them know what your goals are and the direction you wish to take within the company. Your boss can offer a great form of guidance or mentoring and help you get to where you want to go.

2. Take on More Responsibilities:

Show that you are ready to take on a higher position by asking for additional tasks that will prove you are capable to work a job at the next level. Take initiative and offer your time when volunteers are needed for new assignments. Come in earlier or stay later and be willing to work outside of your job description. If you are able to complete multiple tasks effectively, people will take notice and suggest you are fit for a more complex role.

3. Seek New Skills:

A new job position will require you to be knowledgeable in different areas and obtain certain skills. There can be several employees that are worthy of a promotion, therefore it is important to stand out and have a beneficial skill set. Keep up to date with any technology or systems used on the job and always be aware of what’s happening in the industry outside of the office.

4. Build Your Network:

If you are well known within your field, the more likely your name will be passed around and recommended. Get to know all of the people you work closely with and even those in other departments. Try to socialize and learn new things from colleagues who currently work as your aspiring job title or who have been previously promoted.

5. Have a Voice:

Actively participate during team meetings and state your opinions or ask questions. Come across as someone who is interested in the conversation, rather than never having anything to say. This will demonstrate your value and ability to contribute useful ideas.

6. Ask About it:

This may seem obvious, but sometimes all you need to do is ask! A promotion or job opening may not be brought to your attention simply because no one knew you were interested in the first place. Make it clear that you want to do something new and progress towards a different role. Don’t be afraid to ask for advice or feedback on your performance, so you can highlight your recent accomplishments and know how you can improve.

Fashion Jobs – Interview Question: What are your Weaknesses?

Interview Tips - Christie Lohr Style Nine to Five

No job interview is complete without the dreaded, “what’s your greatest weakness” question, or some variation of it. Employers love to ask candidates about their professional weaknesses, and what a candidate says in response can reveal a lot about them. I can’t even begin to count how many times I’ve received the generic, “I pay too much attention to detail,” another variation of turning an inherent strength into a weakness, or worse “I don’t have any”. Everyone has weaknesses in certain areas; it’s human nature. Trying to pass yourself off as a perfectionist during your interview may not actually work in your favour the way you would expect it to. Be real and be authentic. Always show up to an interview having fully prepared to answer that dreaded question. As an employer, I want to know what you’ve done to overcome a weakness in the past, specifically something that’s related to the workplace and not your personal life. It’s important to maintain professionalism, so choose a weakness that would be of interest to your interviewer.

For example, my personal weakness is that I am disorganized. Being so busy, I want to get everything done ahead of schedule and in the rush to do so, I may just skip a beat along the way. With so much going on, I’m prone to being somewhat scatter-brained and have even missed a few important, scheduled calls in the past. In order to improve and overcome this weakness, I committed to writing everything down in front of me. I knew I had to start doing so as using my phone calendar wasn’t effective for me. Along with writing and documenting everything, I also started creating spreadsheets on Google Docs. The combination of the two has been really effective in helping me get more organized. Although my organization is still something that I’m working on, I can safely say that it’s no longer a hindrance to my ability to be productive while not missing the little details.

 

Whether you share my weakness of disorganization, or have one that’s unique to you, I encourage you to work at improving your negatives so that you can turn it into a great answer to the next “what’s your biggest weakness” interview question.”
