SOUTHFIELD, Mich. (WJBK) -

Many people believe the only way to advance in their career is to leave their current company. The results of a new survey indicate they may be right. According to a new Robert Half Management Resources survey, chief financial officers, on average, said 38 percent of their accounting and finance management staff were promoted from within.

If you're looking to move up in your organization, what are the best ways to make your case for a promotion with the boss? Is there a "right" time to ask? If you're currently job searching, how can you gauge the company's commitment to staff advancement?

For those looking for a promotion - when's the best time to ask?

  • Don't wait for posting of open role
  • Don't wait for your performance review meeting
  • Ideally - make your intentions known when you interview for the role.
  • In the role - make yourself known as the one who can solve problems, be flexible and gets things done.
