If you're angling for a promotion at work this year, June and July are the months to make your move, new research suggests.
January traditionally was the month when Australian workers bagged a promotion, the internet-based professional networking organisation LinkedIn says.
And while the first month of the year remains a popular time for moving up the career ladder, many promotions are now being granted at the end of the financial year, LinkedIn says.
"The LinkedIn research shows that most Australian professionals get their promotions in January or around the end of financial year," said LinkedIn's Sally-Anne Blanshard.
"This is the time they should be looking at investing in developing their brand online and networking."
The online group said there had been a recent spike in July promotions in the Australian accountancy and law sectors.
And Generation Y workers - those born in the 1980s - are also more likely to be promoted in the middle of the year.
Globally, January, July and September are the most popular months for promotion.
