You need to be very goal-oriented with absolutely clear career goals in mind. Not only should you set the goals in your mind and diary but also frequently communicate it. Make your boss a part of your journey towards reaching the career goals. You boss won’t help you until you make him. Secondly, you can never expect a promotion if you are not a team player. Promotion means more responsibilities and more people working under you. Thus, you will be considered for it only if you have a proven track record of being a team player. One more important habit to ensure your promotion is to keep learning. The more you learn, the more suitable candidate you become for the promotion. And never be scared of change. When you have a good record of adaptability in the company, you will easily be chosen for probable promotion. Last but not the least, always keep a positive attitude at work.
