Getting passed over for a promotion: How to bring it up?
So there's been a bunch of new hirees at my work, and it turns out they're creating an entire new team (which will be doing work very similar to my own). Naturally they hired new managers as well, who are actually training with my manager right now. I'm pretty annoyed for some reasons:
1) I made it clear before that I'm interested in any oportunities to move up, and these positions weren't even brought up to anyone in our team.
2) I always gotten great marks on reviews and what not, my work has been praised and I'm constantly being told that the moment something came up I would be recommended for it. During my year end review my manager and I discussed how more oportunities we needed in order to raise morale.
3) I always end up training new folks, and currently training some people who are going to be making up this team.
I'm my mind I feel I'm qualified to have at least been interviewed/notified of this position. Naturally my manager may have disagreed, but if she did I want to know what I'm doing wrong and what can I improve. What's the best way to bring this up without sounding like I'm bitching?
