Being ready isn’t enough; you have to be
prepared for a promotion or any other significant change.
Promotion can come when you least expect it. If your daily actions are investing in your future, then you are preparing for the next promotion.
My first promotion came when I was 19 years old. I was working in the accounting department for a subsidiary of a large corporation in Atlanta, who decided to move their headquarters to Tennessee. They offered me a transfer with a promotion to the Information Systems Department, not accounting. They offered to pay for my computer programming training and to pay all the educational cost to finish my business degree. After a little salary negotiations, I was on my way.
