Stop assuming and speak up if you’d like to be promoted in your company. Confide in a few people above you on the career ladder. Tell them what you’d like your next job title to be.
If you’ve worked hard and have a good attitude, they will more than likely want to help you advance in your company. If you’ve been a complainer, critic or slacker, though, you’ll have to change your behavior. People who move up the corporate ladder are usually the hard workers with positive attitudes who want the next position badly enough to ask for help in getting there.
