Are you new to the workforce? It is common in many lines of work for employees to participate in various work activities that are not explicitly part of your core job. In theory, the compensation for those extra activities is either baked into your current base salary, or it is baked into bonuses and promotions.

Make it get factored in. Be proactive and ask for promotions / raises because of this. No one is going to hand you something you aren’t willing to ask for.

That is like how everyone in consulting does business development for free

Yes, this is incredibly common. Sounds like a developmental opportunity which is long game in terms of rewards and opportunity, not short.

helpful

Yes, good point. Definitely need to continue to approach it with this mindset.

I’ve done this throughout my career. I’ve led and created many committees at different companies. In my personal experience while I thought this would make me stand out more, for me personally it didn’t add any value towards promotions or increases. It was more of a well good on you. Instead it was just areas I was interested in or a way for me to give back.

helpful

I actively want to move my career in this direction so I’m hoping that while it may not affect promotions at my current company, it will serve as a good experience down the line.

Yes I’ve done this for the past 6 months and now I have an upward mobility opp on an adjacent team and current team pushing for my promotion to stay. Doesn’t always pan out like that though so make sure before committing you have future state plans in mind.

That’s awesome. I don’t think it’ll pan out for me in that way for me, but I’m certain it will pan out for me in the long run (eventually when I switch companies).
