If you want to get ahead, you have to go above and beyond your job description. Nowadays, advancement at work is less about a certain set of skills and more about strategy.

This webinar will detail exactly what puts one employee on the fast track to an exceptional career, while the other gets left in the dust. Employees will learn:

  • Why timing is more important than talent
  • How corporations really make promotion decisions
  • How to avoid career mistakes you don't even know you're making
  • and the 10 proven strategies for advancement regardless of your industry and experience.

If you want to know how to begin controlling your own destiny, the solution is not to work harder but to work smarter. Whether you are new to the workforce or you want to learn how to position and present yourself to your employer so that you can get that new promotion, this webinar is your ticket to advancement.
