How to Really Get Ahead

Many people think that careers should follow an upward trajectory. In reality, the majority of jobs moves don’t involve a promotion. Most successful careers involve a mix of lateral and upward movement. People who stay in one function or one industry may move up quickly in the beginning of their careers but often reach a ceiling later when they become too specialized. Don’t be overly focused on a promotion as your next career move. It’s easy to be distracted by a better title, more direct reports, or other trappings, but focus on the long-term. Ask yourself whether a promotion will give you the skills and experience you need and whether a move to a different part of the organization may serve you better.
