How do you deal with it when colleagues at your level get the promotion and you don't? Keep in mind they deserve it just as you did.

Be happy for them. Ask your counselor what they did differently than you did and ask them how you could improve. You may not need improvement but your it makes sure your CC is aware that you are gunning for a promotion and it puts the onus on them to help make it happen.

Sorry OP, this is never a good feeling and happens to us all. Agree with the other poster... when you want promotion you have to work for it. Do not think that sitting back and letting your work shine for itself will do the job. You have to campaign for yourself and you have to start early in the promo year with your supervisor and on up the chain. I’m not saying you have to ask about promo every week - but let it be known at the early stage of a project and then check in every month or two. I completely didn’t understand this part for many years and it is so important.

I am due for promotion next year from S. Con to Manager. I was assured that I would get it this yr but didn't happen and now the partner tells me that it's definitely going to happen next year. I have got an offer with 50% hike from a well to do start up but for the same profile. Should I make the move or should I wait another year? In a dilemma, kindly advice. I was also awarded the president award this time - but I guess that was more like a consolation for not getting the promotion.

If you're scheduled for next level training (staff 1 -> staff 2) does that mean you've been promoted? Is there an informal way to know if you haven't been promoted prior to official promotion date?

Even though this group may be biased, I need to ask. I am having a hard time picking between med school and business school. I have worked as an analyst for two years but see no fulfillment in my job. I know I could get into IB or equity research but I still have no real interest in it. But I also have zero experience in the medical field. I was a finance major and would be doing a complete 180, but the idea of medicine sounds so much more fulfilling than any career in finance. Thoughts?
