I like my work and my boss but I keep getting hit up by recruiters offering more money. I know the grass is often not greener. I don’t want to give up a good situation based solely on better pay but it would be awesome to pay off my student loans and buy a house

Sounds like a “apply and see what happens situation.” You might either find a role you like for more money or leverage an offer for more money where you are now.

To be clear, I would not leverage an offer unless I’m willing to leave and take that offer.

I’m not going to use an outside over to try and leverage that never ends well even when they agree. I’ve asked about a raise and made my case. My boss is fully on board but I’m at an F15 with tight salary bands and I’d need a promotion to get a raise at this point. Unfortunately they won’t be evaluating promotions for at least 6 months. He’s escalated to his SVP who raised it to the GC so I feel like I’m likely to get a promotion/ raise but that’s half a year away.

Hi it’s me a recruiter. Unless you’re at my company which tbh is possible.

How much is the pay difference? Sometimes thinking about that yearly difference and how it will impact your career earnings can be very motivating.

I’m not at a firm I’m at an F15 and like I said I’ve already asked for the raise

Following. I’m in the same boat.
