Bring a detailed list of your projects and accomplishments, including your role and the impact of the project. Include any data you have (stayed on budget/time, no team turnover, campaign metrics, happy client, etc). Begin to prove our more strategic role vs tactical.

Look up the job description above you and tick off every item on it, and include examples of how you’ve accomplished that and sustained that performance.

You should be prepped so they have no reason to deny.

Also fwiw most promos only come at review time.

Definitely agree with comparing the job descriptions, that also shows initiative that you're thinking about it. Then you can find out if your supervisor feels you are making progress and ask any questions about how to gain experience in areas you haven't touched on yet

Personally, I started having conversations with my supervisor at about 6 months...I didn't want to seem like I was getting ahead of myself but after I was more comfortable in my role I always make sure to ask every month at my 1 on 1 about what I do right/can improve on and what the expectation is for an AE vs AAE. Now 6 months later at my annual review I was told (off the record) that I will be put up for a promo. I feel it's always best to keep a dialogue so you know you're on the right track and getting feedback along the way. Don't get me wrong I was trying to actively get feedback even before 6 months but I didn't gear the conversation towards promotion as much as am I just on the right track to being a good account person. Trying to keep tabs yourself and then bringing a list at the end seems risky, if you aren't talking openly you both may have very different visions of progress you feel you've made. My supervisor told me straight up, part of the way to show you're working towards promotion is to ask the question early...it shows you're actively thinking about how you can do better and start taking on more of the next level type responsibilities to show you're ready to be in that role. Hope this helps!

I’m at Deloitte as SSS and my team is not doing best practice work. Using git, merge requests, test cases, code validation…Also my managers are not technical. I have been doing poorly on interviews because I lack the basic software engineering mindset and best practices and I’ve also never had a technical boss and my current boss isn’t technical. How do I fix this? Do I move to a product function at D? Do I go for a junior position at a startup? Do I teach myself all of these unknown processes?
