Hey guys! I would greatly appreciate your feedback on this matter. I am currently a board certified hearing care practitioner- I handle all task of hearing screenings, programming of hearing aids and counseling patients into better hearing. I have secure multiple contracts and have even established being number one in outreach in the region and in the company. I have finally made the attempt to reach out to my boss and regional manager with no true answer of a rise or promotion into this role.

My perspective is that there was an indirect ask for a promotion rather than a statement that you would like to be considered for a promotion.

How do you feel I am doing? Are there any openings or a possibility for a promotion?
I would like to be considered for a promotion because x, y, z. Here are my metrics and why I believe I am the right fit for (insert role).

Each situation will likely receive a different answer and evoke different emotions within people. My feedback is, ask again but not in a form of a question and schedule this as a face to face conversation. My sense is your approach is more water (feminine) and your managers will respond better with more fire (masculine) especially being in the sales world. Let me know if that lands for you and if you'd like more support around this!


Love this !! Thank you


I also read that women who show their interest in advancing their career should let their employers know. But I truly feel that if they know I am doing well they also should show appreciation to my efforts. What are your thoughts?

They owe you nothing, and they are not mind readers. You need to drive your career. What does a promotion look like to you? Get clear on that for yourself, and then start talking to them about what you specifically would like to see, and when.

Being number one means you’re good at your job, it doesn’t mean you’ll be good at the next level or in a different role. Why would they promote someone if 1) they don’t have someone who can do the work 2) know how you would leverage your skills at the next level?

Do you mind clarifying? Did you already talk to your boss and regional manager, but they declined to promote you?

I definitely agree! I feel my outreach and securing contracts will help improve business due to OTC starting. We also offer OTC as an option to our patients as well so there’s a lot of growth that can help our company grow! I appreciate your insight for this and your examples coming from all angles!

Looking for advice on negotiating a raise. My current company recently "reviewed all salary positions to determine if they were needed to be competitive in the market". Of course they came to the conclusion that none were needed. The issue is that there are very very few positions, similar to what I do, to compare against. I'm highly skeptical as to what they actually compared us against so my question is... Is it worth using similar positions in different industries as a comparison?


My big lesson learned past few days. Let me know if I got this right. 1. FED and the government really can’t afford for a bear market like ever again. The market has to go up, even with a slight sell offs here and there. 2. They really can’t afford to keep rates high for long. So they might raise short term by 2023 but have to eventually lower them. 3. They will keep kicking the can down the road and stonks go up forever.


Strategy directors - how long have you been in the role and how long do you plan on staying at that level for? Just want a gut check after 2-3 years to see if I should be aiming for GSD soon or take my time to write more of my own strategies as a mostly individual contributor.
