5 Bits of Advice About: Applying for your first internal promotion

  1. Take it seriously. They know you and the good work you put in, but you need to act as if you’re applying for an external job.
  2. Ask as many (pertinent) questions as possible prior to the interview. It helps preparation and shows your eagerness.
  3. Go into it with full confidence. There is no shame in not getting the job, but make sure you book a meeting to get a full debrief.
  4. The evening before the interview, plan to have an evening off work, so you go into the interview with a clear mind.
  5. Ask one of your work colleagues for support in preparing. Knowing the school’s context will increase the likelihood of being able to predict potential questions.
