The promotion that never came
12 long years, waiting for the next promotion.
The ‘friendly’ comment I heard most often “You don’t mean that? 12 years? Why are you still here?” Or rather what is wrong with you?
And to be honest, I didn’t know.
But what I also didn’t know was what I gained in those 12 long years.
A mature attitude, patience, a can-do attitude that would help me survive in the jungle of the next job.
What did come was a self-belief thicker than a bear’s skin.
What did come was knowledge that helped me ace the odds in the next job.
