Career Advancement: Enough Time in Your Position

OBJECTIVELY DETERMINING IF YOU ARE READY TO MOVE UP

There is a tendency to think that you have full knowledge of a job in a short period of time and that you are ready for promotion to a position of more authority.  Executive search firms are conservative but their guidelines tend to be respected by organizations.  They are useful criteria to measure yourself against.

Have you:

  • Completed a minimum of two years, and preferably three, successfully in your most recent position
  • Steadily increased your production or been able to explain why this hasn’t happened
  • Demonstrated that you can build strong, lasting relationships with clients
  • Taken on new and more complex assignments
  • Shown initiative in devising innovative solutions to client or company problems
  • Received outstanding performance reviews
