If you get a promotion, you move up in the company’s organization. Maybe you were just a basic worker before, but after the promotion, you are in charge of a small team of people. Or maybe you were already in charge of a small team, and after the promotion, you’re in charge of the whole office!
There is also a verb form of this word, which is “promote.” If someone is promoted, they are moved to a higher position.
The opposite of promotion is demotion – let’s try to avoid that if we can!
如果你獲得升遷，表示你在組織內得到提拔。也許你之前是基層員工，但升遷後，你能管理一個小團隊；或者你原來管理一個小團隊，在升遷後你能管理整個辦公室！Promotion的動詞為promote，如果我們說Someone is promoted.表示某人被升到更高的職位，而Promotion的相反則為demotion，就是降職或降級的意思。當然我們最好避免這個情況發生。
Most of the time, but not all of the time, if you get a promotion, you may also get a raise. At some companies, everyone gets a small raise every year, even if they don’t get a promotion. If that happens automatically, great. But most of the time, if you want more money for the work you do, you will have to ask for it, and you’ll also have to explain why you feel you deserve it.

A：Yes sir, I really do. I’ve worked for this company for five years, and I have forged great relationships with both my coworkers and our customers.
B：But that’s just the thing. If you become the manager of your team, you will need to make some hard decisions. You might even need to fire somebody someday. Do you think you can handle that?
A：If that was the case, I’d do whatever I could to help that employee turn his performance around. But if there was no option, yes, I would do it if it was best for the company.
B：Good answer. Well, I can’t tell you yes or no right now, but I’ll certainly consider you for the
