The Best Tip to Get Promoted

by Hank

 The single best way for you to get promoted in your job is to stay current and up-to-date with the news and issues that occur in your chosen profession.  In order to be the best in your line of work, you have to know what is happening in your specific career field.  The same is true whether you are a member of the military or an executive in corporate America.

Become a subject matter expert in your field:

  1. Join industry associations
  2. Subscribe to trade journals
  3. Attend conferences
  4. Read and submit articles to industry journals
  5. Read and subscribe to industry news media (newspapers, newsletters, blogs, etc.)
  6. Read professional development books related to your job
  7. Continue your formal education with a Bachelor’s or Master’s Degree in your field

 

   I am constantly amazed by how many young lieutenants enter the military who do not understand current events, issues, and trends that are happening in their particular branch of service and their military occupational specialty (MOS).  Not knowing about the latest techniques, tactics, and procedures will place leaders in a disadvantage that will affect them and affect their job performance.
