This is Part 2 of the "How to Get a Job Promotion" series. If you missed Part one, go to

6. See Farther. Don't just see things at this present moment. See farther. What will your job becomes 1 year, 2 years or 5 years later? How about your company? Or your industry? Profession? What will be needed 1 year, 2 years or 5 years later? Acquire the knowledge and skills for your future.

7. Networking. This one is simple to talk about but not so in doing. People loves to work with "friends". Have more firends inside and outside your organization. Networking also provides you with more information and intelligence. Start networking inside your organization, then within your industry or profession, then outside your industry and profession.

8. Willing to Move. Many people say that they want to do this and that but nothing is started. People are reluctant to changes. Changes imply difficulties, risks and discomforts. So, many people stay where they were for 10 or more years without moving. Good changes seldom come to you automatcially. (Bad ones might!!!)

Take a small move every 2 to 3 years and major changes for every 5 years. You are going to depreciate when you stay in your position for too long. You can change your company, you job or actively seeking new responsibilties. Make some changes.

9. Calculate the Risks and Go Ahead. Moving is important but calculating the risks is equally essential. Tabulate all potential risks of your planned move and ask yourself whether you can tolerate them in case of the worst happens. If yes, go ahead at full speed.

10. See the Bigger Picture. Don't just see your job from your job. Even if you are the CEO, you are still part of the organization. See how your work fits into other parts of the company. People getting most promotions are those who can see the bigger picture and concern what the company concerns.
