Top 5 – Reasons You Didn’t Get the promotion
I’m writing a little series on Top 5s. I’ll write my top 5s on various topics and I encourage you to write yours.
So you’ve been waiting a long time for a promotion…you applied, interviewed…and got denied.
Here’s the standard 5 reasons you didn’t get the promotion
1 –You’re not the right fit. People aren’t allowed to do it but I do think some prejudice happens (at least subconsciously)
If young, sometimes they think you got more time and can wait. Too old, it’s time for new guard…etc
2 – Want an outsider. Soemtimes a position is designed to get another person working in the organization. An extra body. Promoting internally doesn’t help
3 – They’ve got X set up for it. Sometimes a position is already slotted for someone behind the scenes.
4 – You didn’t sell yourself. Maybe you were too cocky.yes””> Or too shy. But you didn’t give a great pitch on why you should be hired
