Put together a short Google Slides presentation with a different accomplishment on each page and ask for 10 minutes of their time to take them through it. Every time I’ve done this, they’ve been surprised at how much I accomplished (everyone has a short memory) and it makes it much easier for them to justify asking for a raise on your behalf.

Go to GCD. Always go to the higher person, plus who ever your the tightest with. They can go to bat better than a cd

Do your homework first and find out if your employer is hemorrhaging or flush with cash. Check the temperature.

Who am I supposed to go to? HR? My CD or GCD?

Any suggestions on how to start the conversation? What if they say no?

I wanted to post this for those who see and those who need to see: I, along with you, feel dejected by my current position. But I went to an absolutely no name school and could not find a job out of college for 5-6 months. Randomly got an interview request from PwC for a position I never applied for through LinkedIn. All this to say, everyones path is different and yours will work out how it should. Everything happens for a reason, assuming you always put your best foot forward. May we succeed.
