Best practices to recruit/attract in Guadalajara, MX market? And what are some insights you can provide?

I was just given a promotion and the compensation was lower than what I hoped given my external market data research (20k under that) and knowing the midpoint to my previous level (9k under that). I’ve never negotiated a promotion before and was prepared to do it in a way where I shared that I’m extremely grateful and excited for the opportunity but wanted to see if we could discuss the comp. Basically it went the way we fear as women - I was told it makes me look ungrateful.

Is it poor taste to ask for a job description before having an introductory call? Your time is valuable (as is mine!) and I find recruiters often reach out about roles having not fully read my LinkedIn and will only provide a loose description of the job. I get why, your job is a numbers game so I empathize, but I’d rather just spend 2 mins reading a job description than waste 25 minutes on a role that is horrifyingly wrong for me. That way we’ve still connected! I just didn’t waste your time.
