Before You Apply: Get Ready to Lead
by Rich DeMatteo, Corn on the Job

Have you felt stuck in middle management for far too long, or do you think you can do better than your current position? If you’re feeling restless and ready to take on more responsibility, then it’s time to go after that new job or promotion. However, before you start spiffing up your resume and asking for bigger things, you need to make sure that you’re ready to lead.

Get Some Credentials
One of the common characteristics of effective leaders is that they never stop learning. Some people get into leadership by luck or sheer force of personality, but for most, having some credentials is absolutely essential. If you have work experience but need to beef up the education portion of your resume, then go back to school. With so many universities and industry groups offering online courses, there’s never been a better time to head back to school.

If you want to get into a top management position, nothing helps like earning an MBA. You’ll get more than just coursework from an MBA program; you’ll get to tap into your school’s extensive network of current students, alumni, and faculty. If an MBA isn’t right for you, look into the certifications that matter in your profession. Earning certification can boost not only your chances of getting hired but also your paycheck once you are hired. You can also take continuing education courses that will help you boost your skills.

Network With Other Leaders
If you’re going to get a leadership position, you need to know people who can vouch for your abilities. Start going to leadership-oriented workshops offered by your current employer, or head out into the community to network with other business leaders.
