So, you’ve been doing great work and you’re expecting to get that call into your boss’ office to discuss your career advancement. Well, wait no more. You might need to get beyond your desk and take real action toward getting that higher position. According to a recent CareerBuilder survey, one-third (33 percent) of employers said they are more likely to promote an employee who has been vocal about asking for a promotion in the past.
Also, consider that there are several behaviors—other than subpar or average performance—that employers identified as red flags when considering whether to promote an employee. Check out the top 7 contenders from the survey:
71 PERCENT: Someone who says, “that’s not my job”
69 PERCENT: Someone who is often late
68 PERCENT: Someone who has lied at work
55 PERCENT: Someone who often leaves work early
64 PERCENT: Someone who takes credit for other people’s work
55 PERCENT: Someone who takes liberties with expenses charged back to the company
