A job promotion can be your door to a more challenging and higher paying job without the stress of the job search process.
Imagine getting the job of your dreams without the effort and stress of job hunting. If you’ve been working in the same job position for several years, you may have outgrown your current role and feel the time is right for a new job. You’ll likely have become an expert in some areas, obtained new skills, and find some job duties unchallenging.
In this case, a job promotion can be your door to a more challenging and higher paying job without the stress of the job search process. A promotion to a senior level or transfer to another department within your organization is something you will want to try before applying for a job elsewhere.
Benefits of a job promotion include getting the job without the intense job hunting effort. After all, it can take 21 to 80 job applications to get just one job offer and only around 22% of applicants who apply for any given job land an interview, according to Zippia. Other benefits of an internal promotion include career advancement opportunities, a higher salary, and greater career satisfaction. Seeing your career progress is a great morale booster, too. In addition, studies show that those in the higher pay bracket tend to get a 6% higher salary through internal promotions compared to external job changes (MIT).
Applying for a job promotion with preparation can increase your chances of getting a positive result. Here are some things to do:
- Work toward the promotion. Plan in advance and put in the work to make a positive impression. This includes work effort and attitude, since attitude is just as important for a promotion.
- Update your resume with the latest information.
- Prepare an achievements portfolio.
- Obtain and compile your latest performance reports and your manager’s commendations.
