How hard is it to climb into a higher position in a bigger company/how long does it take?
I’m in the 11th grade and I like to play baseball and am very interested in pursuing something business related after school. #school #general
That is a great question! To help answer your question, climbing the ladder within a larger scale company is dependent on the environment and the company's stance on employee development and success. Usually, a trend that you will see in larger scale company's is that there is a lot of competition due to the amount of employees. I am currently working for a large scale consulting firm, and from my experience thus far, the promotion process is very intricate and there are a lot of actionable pieces that play into it. Usually you are up for promotion every two years and your metrics have to outshine other employees that are at your level (same position). With every level, the promotion process get harder and harder. But nothing is impossible, if you work hard and prove how valuable you are to the company.
I hope this helps!
In the interim or if you don't plan to attend secondary education, you can get a job after school at a local company with a high ceiling for growth opportunity, as previous answers have indicated as well. Or potentially supplement your education through INTERNSHIPS. These are great opportunities to get real-world exposure and help to hone the kind of business you'd like to be in.
Learn as much as you can about the companies you're applying for/currently working at. Promotions and growth do have many different considerations depending on the organization, but the best advise I can give is to let your work speak for itself. Work hard to meet or exceed your company's expectations. Networking is also vital. You can start with your neighbors, people who know you and can attest to your character. You can also use social media tools like LinkedIn to meet potential mentors and discover other opportunities.
Good luck in your continued success.
