Would you say "get an advancement" or "get a promotion" at work?
'Advancement' is more formal than 'promotion'.
In the US, one rarely hears about getting an advancement. Promotion is the noun commonly used.
'The conference discusses advancement within engineering careers' vs 'It's important to seek promotion in your first year.' (I think 'advancement' is chiefly used in that general sense; 'getting an advancement' - in any register - sounds v. odd to me.)
