    Re: If I would be given the job...

    You will notice that I have changed your thread title.

    Extract from the Posting Guidelines:

    'Thread titles should include all or part of the word/phrase being discussed.'

    Your sentence is not grammatical. I assume you are using 'ladder' figuratively and not applying for a job as a window cleaner or roofer.

    One way to say it could be

    'If I am given the job, I will do my best to climb the ladder as fast as I can'.

    Always capitalise 'I'.
