Applying for promotion – WW2022


Applying for promotion – a 45 minute workshop on 2 Nov 2022, from 1230pm.


Applying for (academic) promotion is a tedious task.

Indeed, I have helped several people get promoted. And, in the end, it was easier to find a job at the next level up than apply for promotion internally…

However, there are good reasons to apply. From continuity for yourself, your staff, your family. To familiarity of place, activity, people.

In this workshop, we’ll discuss the promotion process and how you can build the best possible case. We’ll also consider what the approach looks like compared with applying for a (different) job.

And, if you’re applying for a promotion (as a new job, or internally), bring your application along and we can do a real-life case study.
