Hi! I am on a delicate situation in my career right know and I would like some advice.
I joined my current company 4 years ago as HR Generalist through Hays working part-time while studying my Masters and I was hired full-time in 2020 with a different title as HR support Specialist. 11 months after, my FTE reduced to 70%. My senior colleague by then working part-time requested becoming full-time again and promoted to Director. Would you leave in my situation if I dont have any offer yet?

Are you happy with what you make, your WLB, do you like the company and people you work with? What are you looking for and are they going to give it to you?

My advice is if you want to stay ask for what you want, if they say no, you know where you stand. If you said no to above, I’d start looking.

I’ve had experience in Spain and other EU markets, unfortunately it is a very difficult market there especially for young people, not sure how covid has impacted it, my experience was pre-covid. If you’ve been looking for a year and a half and haven’t found anything, again, I know the situation there, but maybe you should have a professional review/edit your resume and LinkedIn profile and see if that helps with your search, it doesn’t sound like anything will change at your current company. I’d also go after positions in American/UK companies that have locations in Spain, if you are bilingual that is huge pro for those companies and something I would absolutely be looking for.

Are you upset about the title only? Or compensation too? I would have a conversation about what you are looking for in terms of title and see if anything changes. Looks like this person was promoted and you were not? Maybe see what your promo trajectory looks like if that is the case? But just like with comp these days, getting a competing offer might help move things along.

Thanks for the advice!! It might seemed I am annoyed because the person was promoted and I was not. The fact is that for her promotion to be possible I was demoted my title and compensation changed having outperformed the previous years. And I think that was unfair.

The reason for my departure is because the team structure has changed now.
What it was before:a team with a HR consultant and HR generalist (external Hays advice they contracted to help build the department, hr systems and english communication was needed for this) .
Now it looks more like a Director-Assistant kind of structure. So it does affect my career since the person doesn't want to develop me either in the department or recommend me to others. This person doesnt recognise my work and try to hide it in front of others.
I am overreacting or does it seem fair to leave and look for development opportunities somewhere else?

I agree with advice, if you are happy and they meet you with career path and plan great! If not it's an employee market, I have dozen recruiters outreach weekly to me- there are many opportunities out there!

Your situation is out of my league but, perception of ignored-or-disrespected would motivate asking for exactly what you want, providing time and space for anticipated can’t-know-what (as far as response). Maybe you unconsciously give impression you are fine with crumbs, whether firm is unaware of optics, or biding time, unless or until you make your bottom line transparent? Negotiation is a thing, concessions are possibly possible. Matter-of-fact, positive demeanour, say what you mean and mean what you say. Ready either way, no bluffing. No bridges burned if you play cards and shrug if nothing is offered. Cheerful, theatre. Departure is a new adventure, though being heard is a 1st step transactional move.

I am a UX designer and have spoken with a potential client who intially wanted to redesign the navigation and landing page of their site. They showed me analytics saying only .35% of users open the main menu (most access different pages through Google search and then leave the site) so it's not worth the time to redesign. I see a lot of growth potential here, but they don't see the value in good nav if users don't already use it. How do I show them the value of good nav? Should I just let it go?
