I was hoping to be promoted to AE at my annual review in June, but my boss just put in her notice this week. Can I ask her about a promotion before she leaves?

You can absolutely discuss your review and expectations in advance of her leaving. Ask her if she’ll be able to provide feedback before she leaves. If during that time you discuss a promotion, ask for her assistance documenting her recommendation and next steps to help that come to fruition. Loop in HR as well. Just ensure you come off genuinely concerned about your growth vs entitled. As an aside, never wait for your actual review to discuss a promotion. It’s usually too late.

For sure bring it up. If they were going to offer it, they will advocate for you before they leave.

Make the case now. + ask your boss to write their appraisal of you for their replacement; with the promotion request clearly logged in it.

Yes do it!! I was in the same boat a few years back- the Account Director role was a revolving door at the time and I had to keep proving myself to each new person. Have the conversation before he/she leaves!

Can you physically ask? Yes

Make a case in writing. Will be easier to navigate the conversation with a new supervisor without losing steam.

Do it. I know someone who was in your same position and she waited a year to be promoted because she didn’t say anything

A colleague shared with me the presentation they have prepared for their promotion case. I worked with them on multiple projects during the year and I can clearly see that some of the claims on the deck are wild exaggeration or lies. For example, managed changes in scope for Project X including contract changes. Plot twist: there never was a change of scope for Project X and the contract is exactly the same. How can people be so dishonest? How far can you go before truth catching up?
