Want to Earn a Promotion? What You Can Do Daily to Stand Out

Updated: Dec 12, 2023

Your goal: earn a promotion as quickly as possible. Accomplishing your goal may seem like a long, arduous endeavor. But, there are many things you can do on a daily basis that can help you get promoted.

Tips to Earn a Promotion

Here are four things you can do every day to put yourself in an excellent position to earn a promotion.

1. Make Eye Contact

Resist the urge to look down at your feet when you talk to others. Instead, maintain eye contact in conversations. This shows you are confident in what you have to say. Plus, eye contact indicates you are actively listening to what someone is stating.

Eye contact won't guarantee you'll earn a promotion. It can, however, show you are engaged in conversations. The result: eye contact can help others feel good about you and what you have to offer. This can boost the likelihood that you can earn more responsibilities than ever before at work. And, as you take on new responsibilities, you can climb the corporate ladder.

2. Complete Work on Schedule

Arrive to work on time or early and complete everyday tasks on deadline. This lets you show your superiors you take your role seriously and can manage your time well.

If you need help managing a schedule, it often helps to make a list of daily responsibilities. You can update your list throughout the day and check off different tasks as you complete them. This can help you stay on course with work tasks. Meanwhile, with each task you finish, you may move one step closer to earning a promotion.

3. Maintain a Positive Outlook

Do your part to contribute to a positive work environment. Rather than complain about challenges at work, embrace challenges as opportunities to learn and grow.

Positivity is contagious, and your positive attitude can rub off on others. Over time, your attitude may help your team surpass its goals. If your superiors see your positive attitude, they may believe you are a great candidate for a leadership role within your company.

4. Invest in Yourself

Take time to learn new skills or enhance your current skill set every day. You should always look for opportunities to improve. That way, you can take gradual steps to reach your full potential.

It can be beneficial to meet with your manager to explore opportunities to learn from him or her or others at your company. Capitalizing on daily learning opportunities can help you perform your best at work. It can also show your superiors you are willing to do what it takes to thrive, which may help you land a promotion.
