Dear Dr. Mimi: I Feel Stuck

Dear Dr. Mimi:
I have been working at my current position for several years and feel as if I am being passed by for promotions. I don’t want to be rude, but how can I make it clear to my employer than I am interested in moving forward with the company?
—Stuck

Dear Stuck:
The first step is to observe the traits and skills your employer seeks in promotable employees. Then, observe the value you add and make them known to your employer. Ask your employer to discuss your goals and seek guidance on how to accomplish them. This will make it clear to your employer that you are interested in advancement without directly asking for a promotion.
—Dr. Mimi
