You’re probably familiar with the saying “It’s not what you know, it’s who you know.”
The fact is, your career growth depends on both. You need to know the right people and also have the skills they need.
Career advancement tends to come in different forms. For some, it could mean as simple as being tasked to handle a project with increased responsibility. For others, career advancement only presents itself in the form of a promotion.
While advancement can manifest in different ways, the steps to achieving it tend to be similar to one another.
