Having a good career and a job you like is one of the major fulfillments of life. However, like most things good, it needs a lot of effort on your part. If you want a promotion at work, the following points might help:

1. DON’T WAIT FOR THE JOB VACANCY. Pave the way by making sure your boss knows you want more responsibility.

2. EMPLOYEES NEED TO TREAT THEIR OWN COMPANY AS A CLIENT. In order to stay competitive, inform your employer of your competencies and your talents.

3. PREPARE FOR POSITIONS YOU ARE INTERESTED IN. If you’re targeting a job in a foreign country, begin taking language classes before any opportunity presents itself. Think about portability. Likewise, don’t let a company know you’re interested in a foreign post if you cannot do it. You can tell them you can’t do it; that would help them identify where else they can promote you.

4. FOLLOW THROUGH in every commitment to you boss, colleagues or anyone else. Being able to meet deadlines is extremely important.

5. BE PUNCTUAL. Being late leaves a bad impression and is unprofessional.

6. BRUSH UP YOUR KNOWLEDGE of both your subject and related ones.

7. SAVE MONEY. Have enough money saved, perhaps enough to meet about 6 months’ expenses, on which you can fall back if you need to change your job.
