Which is correct? Or neither is correct?
I will be advanced to the manager.
My position will be advanced to the manager.

Thanks.

The expression you want, Hyoyoung, is "promoted to."

  • I will be promoted to manager.

    Note that "manager" doesn't have an article in front of it.

    The second sentence is not natural.

    Hello, Hyoyoung! Smile

    My half-penny:

    It is possible to say

    I'll advance to the manager's position.

    But as Rachel pointed out, it's much more common to say the sentence she cited.

    I agree with Richard.
