6 Reasons Why You Haven't Been Promoted6 Reasons Why You Haven't Been Promoted1. You overwork2. You're not curious3. You're agreeable4. You're untrained5. You're clingy6. You're alone

Fri, 21 Apr 2017 14:50:00 -0400

Although the majority of millennials see themselves as leaders, a smaller percentage actually hold leadership roles. Haven't been promoted? It could be due to one of these six reasons.

Working longer hours can actual devalue your work, it shows you can do twice the work for a lower salary. The hardest working employees may not be rewarded with a promotion, but with more work at the same pay.

If you pretend like you know everything, people will think that you don't want to learn. People appreciate when you show interest.

Your boss will admire you if you stand up for yourself and stand behind your opinion. Employees who are agreeable tend to receive fewer promotions.

You aren't proficient in the skills your employer is looking for, like written and oral communication skills. Request training in areas that need attention.

You may think that constantly checking in with your supervisor is conscientious. but it comes across as clingy and hints at underlying insecurity. Make sure you communicate when you need to and know how frequently you should check in.

If you don't have a mentor, you may not be sure of exactly what to do or where to go next when determining your career path. Getting guidance from others can help point you in the right direction.
