Remember, “If you always do what you’ve always done, you always get what you’ve always got.”
Promotions in today’s business climate are not based solely on seniority. The reason you are not getting a promotion may be that your competition is getting the notice and attention. Your job is to ensure your supervisor is recognizing you as a top performer and a valued employee.
