How much room is there for me to grow?
I really enjoy team management too, so I was wondering if I would be able to be promoted or move up after so many years of experience. I would also need to know if a lot of team work goes on in the laboratory. #science #biology #management #chemistry #laboratory #team-leadership #teamwork #forensic-scientist
As for expecting a promotion after XX years of experience, that is a myth. Promotions come from displaying your abilities (in most companies) and is not a given. As Andrew states above, continually work on your education and your contacts. Use the tools available to you like night classes, industry expo's, conferences, etc. to not only build you knowledge, but to show your superiors that you are not going to settle for the status quo and you are interested in expanding.
The business fields you list in your question all have promotional potential. Some are more specialized than others which might limit opportunity due to the competition for the roles, but the ones who will succeed are the ones who demonstrate the desire to improve themselves and grow.
Good luck in whatever you pursue in the future!
