Getting to Staff: Why Time in Role != Success

How you can get promoted faster

I’ve created this newsletter for the other determined engineers who want to climb the ranks, FAST.

Have you heard this time and time again when you ask about more career opportunities?

It’ll come with time.

Man, did that drive me crazy for a while. I’m here ASKING for more work and you’re telling me no??

I learned that most managers default to this response because most engineers aren’t willing to put in the work that actually goes into making it to the next level.
