    Default How to write a letter

    Having remained in my present position for fifteen years with "very good" remarks in the appraisal reports all the time, I now wish to ask for promotion from my supervisor in the forthcoming selection board. How could I present my case decently and effectively so that she will consider my request? If my request was rejected, what should I do next? Should I submit my case to a higher level? Your advice, even if you are not a teacher, is most welcome.

    When you say forthcoming exercise, what do you mean? If there's a vacancy, then just write applying for it and stating your case.

    I mean a promotion exercise is forthcoming. During the exercise, the management will consider the performance of all eligible officers, and the decision on who is suitable for promotion is rested on the chairperson of the selection board. However, the final decision was usually found to be more subjective than objective. Instead of looking at candiates' performance and their senority, the chairperson was inclined to select those of their liking. The process is obviously unfair and biased. But as a subordinate, how could I rectify this? The senior management level will not listen to my complaint because of the rule of play. The person in authority must protect his/her underlings(supervisors) under the chain of command. What an act of democracy in disquise!
