I've been with my company about 9 months and want to be promoted to a management position. What kind of things can I do to give myself the best shot at this job.
In January we had a new COO take over running the company (CEO is a sales guy; COO is in charge of day to day ops).
Shortly after taking over, the COO re-org'ed the company and put an "Empty" management spot over the department where I work.
I've got a good resume that likely fits this position; I've done things internally to demonstrate leadership; I've increased my communication to try to make sure that I'm working on the right things and developing relationships with folks outside my department.
In March, I told the COO that I would like the management position. He said that in about 60 days (which would be May 15th) he'll do a final re-org
So between now and then I'd like to put myself in the running for that promotion.
Please give me some suggestions to help my chances!
