Promote Yourself

If you sit around waiting for someone to notice all the hard work you put in and reward you with a promotion, you’re going to be waiting forever. It’s your job to let the folks in power know what you’re doing and how that directly relates to what you want to do next. Schedule a meeting with your manager to discuss how your current successes are preparing you for that responsibility. But don’t brag; focus on how your accomplishments benefit the entire company.
