Don’t forget why and how you got promoted on your CV
Gaining a promotion is not an easy task and should definitely be something you focus upon when writing your CV. Don’t let that important promotion blend into the rest of your tasks and responsibilities, and instead make sure the hiring manager gets to see it in all its glory.
You must show why you got promoted on your CV
One of the biggest mistakes made when including information about a past promotion is explaining why you got it in the first place. It’s all too easy to forget this important piece of information and only focus on the job title change, tasks and responsibilities.
These are all worth including of course, but the most interesting part to a hiring manager is the why part.
Take advantage of the why and how aspect of your promotion
You don’t need to go into too much detail but make sure you actually explain on your CV why and how you gained promotion. These two components make for great reading and give the employer an insight into what your future goals may be, and what lengths you will go to in order to climb the ladder.
