Should I Accept This Promotion? by Fela40: 12:11pm On Aug 16, 2017
I know since you saw promotion as a keyword in the subject line, you might be tempted to say "take It". But please read and advise me properly.

As at yesterday I didn't know that I would be in this situation today. It is a tricky one and your advice would go a long way.

I am from a poor home, and I keep trying all I know to improve my situations as a young man. I paid through my nose to train myself in an I.T institute of which they helped me secure a job. After my first training outside the country, I made sure that a good percentage of my salary was re-invested back into ICT training and developments.

At this point, it is paying off dearly because I am now so advanced that I am taking up challenging tasks in the company and I am killing them off with ease.

My direct supervisor knows little or nothing as compared to what I know despite being in the company for long. I guess the management noticed it longest time, but were watching the way I handled both technical and human issues. Just this morning, I was called by the MD and the H.R and I was told that my HOD has agreed to be demoted, instead of sacked because of incompetence. That I need to take up the leadership position due to my input and my technical know how. And this promotion comes with a slight increase in Salary.

Now I am wondering if I should take this or.....

I am so confused and wide thoughts are running through my small head. Please any advice is no bad advice.

Please help me with any advice.

Go ahead!!

It is a capitalist world. We ride on others to achieve our aims, and no one gives a Shiit about others. We are in a Man kill Man world.

Those men should give young guys with skills the chance to perform men... no time!!

Go for it because in life OVERTAKING IS ALLOWED. I would have said don't take it if you were the one who lobbied and bribed your way to get the promotion. In life, when you are loaded YOU BECOME UNSTOPABKLE.

Dear Op, please take the promotion. The money you used to train yourself should not go un-rewarded. It will keep others on their toes about personal development.

Something caught my attention about your post. "I paid through my nose to train myself in an I.T institute"

I wish you would look at my signature and tell me what you think.

All the same I wish you luck in any decision you take. Goodluck.
