After getting your footing on the first step of your career, the climb upwards may be daunting. In this blog, we’ll take a look at how to progress up the corporate ladder.
Throughout your employment, there will almost always be plenty of opportunities to progress within your role or progress within the business. However, what exactly is the corporate ladder, how do you identify which path to take and what steps do you need to take to get there? You’ll find the answers and some useful tips to help you climb up the corporate ladder here.
Firstly, you need to identify where you want to go. This means, picking a role you’d like to aim for and eventually work in. You should take a step back and look at all the job positions you could see yourself working in. It’s always good to focus on one or a few specific job roles when looking to progress as this will help you identify the skills you will need to improve in order to fulfil the role.
Progressing within a role constantly requires the development of new skills and talents, most of which can be picked up through training, courses or on-the-job experience. If you don’t think you currently possess the skills required for the role you’d like, speak to your manager or boss and show your willingness to learn. The most important thing when choosing someone for a new job role is not their accreditations, but their desire, drive and passion for achieving that role. Skills can always be taught, but willingness to learn and the drive required to do so cannot.
This brings us nicely onto the top tips to work your way up the corporate ladder.
