PMIWDC Fair Lakes Luncheon | Getting the Promotion You Want: Career Advancement for PMs

About the Program

Join us for networking between 11:45 and noon prior to our presentation "Getting the Promotion You Want: Career Advancement for PMs" which starts at noon.

What does it take to get to the next leadership level? Earning a spot at the next leadership level is a pathway to assuming a more important role in your company or organization, earning increased compensation and gaining a heightened sense of accomplishment. To effectively advance your career within a company or organization, you will need to have excellent work performance and earn visibility with the leaders across the organization. While performance, experience and skills are common requirements for a job promotion in many workplaces, you can take extra measures to become a prime candidate for your desired position. In this presentation we will speak specifically to career growth in the project management career path as we discuss steps you can take to increase your chances of getting a promotion.
