I know I’ve probably posted this a million times but I’m so freakin’ excited! I’ve been working for almost two years to get promoted at work. It’s my first job (I’ve been there for four years) and I’ve spent so many hours working my arse off so that I could live up to the extremely high standards of my employers.
But it seems I might’ve done it. I’m not going to jump the gun and say I’m for sure getting it. But I’ve talked to my boss, she gave me some goals to meet, I worked on those goals, and she met with her boss today and talked to him about it. He’s so hard to get approval from, and she told me today after the meeting that her boss didn’t seem to have any problem with it. I ran to my car and screamed at the top of my lungs in excitement. This is my first ever promotion. I’m so so happy.

Congrats!! That is not easy to do for sure!! Every company I’ve worked for has extremely high standards and I feel like they design goals on purpose that you can’t meet just so they don’t ahve to promote you, haha! Then when they ‘like’ someone (Read: hang out on weekends) that person will quickly climb up the ladder.
Good for you breaking the cycle!

@moderndaisy: Yeah it has been hard. I RARELY get weekends off (we are only ever closed on Christmas day and that’s it) and at first I was angry about it, but I realized that it’s pointless to be since I don’t have a life anyways. So I’m used to it. And there are a lot lot of standards I have to live up to at work as we are constantly evolving and changing the way we run our busness. So we have personal development plans to keep us in check.
