Sample emails to your manager asking for career growth
I have given a lot of energy to this company over the past few years. I think I have gained a lot of experience and potential that needs to be appreciated. I say this in relation to my desire to reconsider my current position at the company. I think I do a great job with every task assigned to me. Moreover, I believe that I have perfect organizational, communication, decision-making skills. Over the years I have learned how to handle all our systems, I have learned the whole circle of production in the company- from the initial process to the final step. In case you respect the career growth requested by me, I am ready to continue with my brilliant work, but also to show many new skills.
I have come a long way since I started in this company. I learned many important things, processes, I got to know a lot of the workers. I am writing all this because of my desire to get a promotion. It is important for me to develop in my work and it makes me feel more valuable person. I hope that you will respond to my wish and give me feedback soon.
I have been thinking for some time that I have taken many steps in this company, but I have still not received the much-desired promotion. I know the whole work process and I have always thought that I deserve appreciation for my efforts. The company is wonderful, I get along great with my colleagues, but I feel stuck for a while. I am a person who wants to develop and after all my efforts at work, I think I deserve it. I hope you understand. I will expect your feedback.
