There is nothing worse than being stuck in a job that you don’t want to do, yet many people often struggle to rise up the ranks and land an all-important promotion. Here, sales and marketing firm Precision Acquisitions Direct have offered their quick-fire guide to workplace progression. 

Precision Acquisitions Direct, a London based Outsourced sales and marketing firm believe that working in a job they don’t feel passionate about is the worst thing a professional can do. Being stuck in a job that doesn’t inspire them can have an incredibly negative impact on professionals and their state of mind, and a study by Labor Dynamics in Australia (HILDA) even found that working in a bad job is worse for a person’s mental wellbeing than being unemployed.

Not being able to move forward and enjoy working can severely disrupt a person’s drive and self-esteem. It can cause them to become disillusioned with the company and industry they work for, which directly impacts their performance and the quality of their work. Simply put, a lack of passion leads to a lack of engagement.

Precision Acquisitions Direct believes that everyone deserves the opportunity to work in a job they love, and rise up through the ranks. However the firm are concerned that many professionals are unsure how to gain the attention of their management and secure a promotion. With the right approach the firm are confident anyone can progress within their industry, and have offered their top tips to help professionals move forward with their careers.

  1. Attitude is (Almost) Everything

Whilst a professional might produce consistently high results, it’s often their attitude that gets them noticed. When promoting to a position of leadership, business leaders are looking for people who have the ability to raise others up and encourage positivity, so displaying the right attitude from the offset is key.

  1. Become a Pro

Doing a job well is no longer enough, business leaders want to see initiative, and people going above and beyond the call of duty. To secure a promotion, professionals need to take their jobs seriously and focus on performing at a higher level.

  1. Kickstart Learning

Professionals should ask themselves what they need to know for the next position they want. Having the skills in place will not only help them start off strong when promoted, it will also provide them with extra knowledge and skill that they can apply in their current role.

  1. Be Ready

Opportunities can come around at any moment, so professionals must be ready. It doesn’t pay to be passive, so alongside learning and raising performance levels, professionals must be ready to strike at any moment.
