Don't ever assume a promotion, or you will be disappointed.

No.

You can hope and you can dream. Real talk - why not put your hat in the ring?

Tell them it’s a stretch opportunity for you. With this job market, by the time they fill it you might have already been there a year. Don’t think it hurts to ask.

smart

Depends on so many other factors in addition to the new hire; size of firm, current needs, projected growth, etc. If you’re looking for a promotion in a year, you should start having conversations with bosses about that goal so that they can coach into what you need to accomplish, and hopefully right-set expectations (rather than a blind stab from strangers on here).
