Do you have a manager who is currently training you or someone you can consider to be a mentor? I would look at their job role or something similar online and look at how you can work on that specific skill sets to become a manager. Also, bring that up in an evaluation meeting with your current supervisor and if they are a good mentor they will take that into consideration and train your and your expressed interest can land your a management job within the company. Hope this helps!


Thank you for the advice, I'll make sure to bring it at our next meeting!! :)


If you have decided, to see what the profile that your company is looking for from its marketing manager is, become better and stronger, the most important thing you already have is the desire to achieve it, so only time is missing. I know you'll make it.

Thank you for the kind words!!!

I recommend you look for the way, what do I mean by this? Seek to modernize aspects of your company show your interest in improving systems and in a short time, you will achieve your goal I assure you.

You'll need to have a few years of experience in the marketing field. You'll also need to have strong leadership and communication skills. How long have you been in marketing for? The faster you climb the corporate ladder, the quicker you'll get there.

3 years so far

Can your employer do anything/would be be very unprofessional to resign with only a month or so of notice in the UK?

I'm still under probation but assigned to a Project already. Should I ask my Account Manager and HR about it or its unethical to do so. Am i making a mistake to ask and confirm about NP even before my offer letter or its ok to just enquire what's the process and possibility to reduce NP as we have buyout option too.
