Singapore offers a lot of opportunities for brilliant and hard-working people. If you are shortlisted for that promotion, you should prove your worth. With all your heart, you have to believe that you deserve that promotion. Other people might think that you do not deserve it but do not mind them.
If you are about to go on an interview, it is imperative that you prepare your words. You need to think of what you are going to say before you screw your chances of getting that promotion. Here are the things that you need to avoid so you will not screw your chances of getting that position:
- Do not compare yourself to others: You may be the last among your group to get that promotion but it is not good to compare yourself to others. Your boss prefers to hear what you did for the company and what you can do in the future instead of whining why you were the last.
- Do not make threats: It is unlikely if you say threats about ditching your job if you cannot get that promotion. If you want your boss to realize you are worth it, do your job well instead of threatening him to leave things.
- Do not focus on yourself: When you are being interviewed, just mention few qualities. Do not speak or focus on yourself the whole time. Your boss will want to hear what you can do for the company. Show that you will benefit the company not the other way around.
That should do it. With these things, you will surely get that promotion that you deserve. Do not let an opportunity pass but if it is not for you, you have to do better next time. After all, opportunities come in two here in Singapore.
