Hello all, hope you are all well.
I'm after some constructive feedback on how I'm going about trying to advance my career please.
I'm 18 at present and just completed my 1st year of a 2/3 year training course at a telecoms firm. The job is technical office based and lacks any management which is where i have a great interest.
I left school a year after my compulsory education to start my full time employment and unsure if the choice i made is the right one. Looking at the management requirements for internal jobs posted in the company it would be possible to become a level 1 (lowest) manager and work my way up in time.
Now while this is all well and good i want to aim to have a management job by the time i am 25 and doing a number of things to make sure i do this.
I've established both an email and 'in person' relationship with my manager and received a number of positive feedback comments from him. I completed a task at short notice to a high standard and also request for more in addition to my current work.
I've also taken a part time course at a local college (starting next week) to gain a formal qualification in business and management, I'm looking to take this to degree in time.
I've started listing to the podcast which i have found very reward but admittedly there is not much i am able to use at present. I have a great relationship with my current manager but how do i start to build one with his manager, whom i have never meet. Is there anything else i could be doing to 'promote' myself or am i doing too much too soon even?
I greatly respect anyone who had the time to even just read this post, thank you very much.
