5 Ways to Get FREE Real Estate Insights

Updated on January 13, 2016

A fast climb to the top of the corporate ladder can be difficult, but it is possible. Whether you want to make the trek in the traditional way or you’re more of an outside-the-box thinker, these tips will help you climb quickly.

Seek Out Mentors

A lot of people who are promoted have something in common: they have a mentor. Sometimes, they even have more than one mentor. When you develop a mentoring relationship with someone who’s at a higher level in your company, they will talk to other people at their level about you. Ask if your company has a mentoring program. Even if it doesn’t, though, you can still take it upon yourself to develop relationships with people in different roles than yours.

Quantify Your Results

Promotions aren’t always based on your past performance, but showcasing how well you’ve done in your position won’t hurt, either. You can make a good case for a promotion by showcasing your past successes. Make sure to present detailed information, though. Statistics and numbers go farther than simply talking broadly about your accomplishes.

Promote Yourself

When it comes to everyday life, you may choose to be modest, but when it comes to work, you should get comfortable with promoting yourself. If people don’t know you’re great, they won’t think of you when it’s time to fill a great position. Make yourself known. If you’ve accomplished great things, talk about them. Sell yourself to the people you meet at work.

Bond With Your Manager

While you don’t want to become so friendly with your boss that it’s no longer a professional relationship, you do want to bond with the person who you report to. They are the person who’s going to be in the best position to help you climb the ladder within your company. When your own boss is your biggest supporter, you’re in the best position possible for growing your career.

Continue Learning

One of the best ways to succeed at work is to regularly learn and gain new skills. In order to be marketable, you need to keep up with the trends, especially when it comes to technology. It’s also useful to stay updated on what’s happening in the world. Even if you don’t work in a news-related field, simply being informed is impressive to people in higher positions. It shows that you have an interest in the things that matter.
