Career Challenge: Position Yourself For A Promotion In 15 Days

If you’ve been eyeing a promotion, now is the time to make your move: One hundred consecutive months of job gains have given way to the tightest labor market in recent history, leaving employers scrambling to retain talent and putting you in the best possible position to go after more. But since asking for a promotion isn’t as simple as, well, just asking, it can be difficult to figure out how best to proceed.

Whether you’re a few years into your first full-time job, eager to exit the entry-level rank or a long-time mainstay of management, hopeful that dues paid will earn you a place in the C-suite, we want to help you take your next step. So we’re launching “Career Challenge: Position Yourself For A Promotion In 15 Days.”

Every weekday for the next three weeks, we’ll challenge you to tackle another aspect of your climb up the ladder, from defining your dream scenario and securing a sponsor to addressing your shortcomings and learning how to articulate what you want. Since everyone has a different career path, we can’t guarantee that completing this challenge will earn you a promotion right away—but we know that if you join us on this journey, you’ll be better equipped for whatever the future has in store.

If you’re ready to get started, tune in here, Monday through Friday, for each day’s topic, and follow along with your fellow go-getters on Forbes’ LinkedIn. Today’s challenge is below.
