I was part of a rotational program. I knew I would be promoted within 2 years b/c I would graduate from the program. The two women above me went from specialist to analyst, and then ended up to consultant. I had to self-advocate, get client feedback, get feedback from senior members on the team, build a business case for myself to be promoted, and then go to the manager to ask how to get promoted in a year and pay raise. I would take the BD rubric, highlight the skills I was good at, and put in sound bites from my feedback to basically dummy-proof it for my manager to make a compelling case to get promoted.
