Promotions of this nature can be either due to consistent improvement in the workers performance. This is popularly known as real promotion. In real promotions, the promoted persons are tasked with higher responsibilities and go higher in the hierarchy of the company. This individual may not necessarily enjoy higher pay or other benefits.

On the other hand, the promotion can be based on the availability of a position which the said candidate is qualified for. This is popularly known as nominal promotion. In nominal promotions, the promoted individual enjoys more benefits and increased pay in addition to the increased number of responsibilities.

Before promotion, the candidate must have shown that they have the required knowledge in the position they want to be promoted to and are to be qualified for the same position. Employers use mechanisms such as interviews and tests to gauge the persons knowledge. Once you are accepted, you are provided with training on the said job while still working in your new position(popularly known as on-the-job experience).
