What is considered a "Promotion"?
What is considered a Promotion?
I've read people say that they received 3 promotions within three years, what does that mean exactly and how can you actually prove to MBA admissions that these were actually promotions and not just lateral moves within the company?
I worked as an underwriter for fortune 5 oil company, doing credit risk for the commercial organization, then after 14 months or so I was moved to the relationship side of credit risk (this is considered a promotion or a "move up" at my company), where I was on the phone with our counter-parties and our trade floor trying to manage and hedge credit risk day in and day out. I did this role for only 4 months and was moved to the trade floor working as an F&PA analyst for a commodity trade group (This is definitely considered a "move up" at my company). I mostly do analysis on how much money we made, how much we lost, where are margins are, can we sustain these margin given the current market trends, etc...
With the given information, can I confidently say on my MBA application that I received two promotions in less than 2 years (I started in Jan 2011)?
Just trying to see if I'm seeing this the right way....
