3 Things You Can Do Today to Prepare for a Promotion in Financial Analysis

by Richard C. Wilson on October 31, 2011

In the field of financial analysis, there is always competition for the next promotion or job.  Therefore, if you want to get ahead or are hoping to be considered for the next big promotion, you will want to be prepared ahead of time.

#1 – Dress the Part – If you are hoping for a big promotion or a certain job, you will want to dress for the job you want, not just the job you have.  When you want to be considered for a particular job, you want those that make the hiring decisions to be able to picture you in that job.  Be sure to look the part.

#2 – Get Some Experience – If you don’t’ have the necessary experience for the job you are looking for, find creative ways to gain some experience.  In financial analysis, you can find volunteer work, continuing education, or professional organizations that may allow you to gain some experience that will be helpful for the landing the position you are seeking.  Be creative and you may find it easy to get some great experience for your resume.

#3- Let Them Know You Are Interested – It is important to make sure that you let those that are doing the hiring know you are interested in the job.  Sometimes your boss may not even realize that you are interested in a position if you don’t make it known.  That is not to say that you want to advertise it every day or make every conversation about the job you are interested in but you do want to make sure the important people know you want to be in the running.
