How to Ask for a Promotion in the Social Impact Industry
There comes a time in every social impact jobber’s life when you say to yourself, “Hey self, it’s time for a promotion.” You’ve proved yourself in your current position and you’re ready to take on more responsibility. You ain’t mad about taking on more money either.
But here’s the annoying part: promotions aren’t just handed out like free candy. Most of the time, you have to ask for it.
How the hell do you do that?
Don’t worry, we got you. But before you walk into your boss’s office and ask for a promotion, do these things:
Once you’ve prepared yourself to ask for a promotion, it’s time to actually do it. Schedule a meeting with your boss and pitch yourself for the position. Be specific about what you’re asking for and ask with confidence. We recommend a little pre-meeting jam sesh to pump yourself up.
If a promotion isn’t in the cards at your current company, maybe it’s time to apply for a new job that values what you bring to the social impact industry. Scroll down to start applying now, you superstar.
