Advancing in Your Career

by Ron Kurtus (updated 16 March 2023)

Your career consists of the sequence of jobs or occupations that you have, as well as the levels you achieve in those positions.

Advancing in your career consists of several steps. First, you must get a good job. Then you want to make a good impression, such that you get a positive evaluation and raise in pay. Finally, you need a strategy for getting promotions and moving up the ladder as high as you can go.

You may be required to obtain a different, better job, or you may want to change fields to get one that is more satisfying to you.

The purpose of these lessons is to help you get a start at improving your skills in getting a good job and advancing in your career.
