Hey guys, I'm a biomedical technician I with no degree and I'm about to hit my one year anniversary with the company. I currently make $21 is it possible to negotiate a higher pay grade since I now have experience and good rep? Most techs start off at about $36 or 54k on average from what I've researched.

I definitely think you should negotiate for a better pay now that you have some experience (and there seems to be a drastic difference between what you're making and the industry standard). Do you have a yearly review coming up? Sometimes companies have a pay increase built into their review process and you have an excellent reputation then they might offer something like that to you. But even if they don't have anything like that, I think that you don't get what you want unless you ask :)

We get a yearly raise I'm hoping it's a review so I can actually get paid like a Tech I or maybe even a Tech II

I negotiate for a raise every year personally. I like to use the annual review as an opportunity to point out how valuable to the company I am to justify the increase. You should be able to do the same, especially if others are getting so much more to start off. If they point out your lack of degree, point out ways in which you accomplish the same work without it.

During my first week at a new job, I received a second job offer that I negotiated for an "in your dreams" salary that I didn't think would be met by the second firm. It was. And now I negotiated myself out of my first job because the first company couldn't budge on my salary.

Should I show my month at the first company on LinkedIn or don't even bother?
