Ask for that promotion! It’s now or never!

I requested mine! Sometimes you have to ask for what you deserve.

Make sure you step up into the AM role so that the transition between them leaving and you stepping in is seamless. If they ran status, led presentations, spoke up as the Account voice for the work and day to day challenges - you should do that now. Also try to use statements instead of questions - instead of "am I taking over status now" you can say something like "I'd like to take over status now that X is transitioning off". I was in this exact situation as an AE and it got me to the SAE role (then it happened again and Im an AS now :)). Good luck!!

Building Client relationships and understanding the goals the client wants to achieve is the best way to progress from AE to AM. Having effective communication skills helps a lot. I would recommend you speak to your HR and ask if there is a possibility for promotion from within. Hope this helps

Quick question: say they promoted you to AM tomorrow… What changes when it comes to your responsibilities?

Yeah, if that’s the case you bounce. But make sure that as you are stepping up, you’re pointing to the impact you’re making (in a non arrogant way) beyond just your direct manager.

Promotions go two ways. You are promoted by your manager AND you promote/advocate yourself 😉

Build your pitch deck as to why you’re already doing the job (if you are) and share it with your manager to build your promo case. Show them but ASK for it. If you don’t ask they’ll just expect you to be an AM with AE pay.

Married for 14 years with 5 kids. Since the start, my wife has had anger issues. She’s not violent, but will go on ‘anger benders’ for days where she cannot be kind to me, stonewalls, and even leaves. Sometimes this is based on a bad argument; most recently, it’s based in a story she conjured up and believes about me having an affair with my neighbor, even though it is 100% false and I’ve tried to show her that. Is this a sign of a personality disorder? Or something else? How can I support her?

Interviewing for an account executive position at a marketing agency and they are asking for a salary range following my initial interview. I was making $62k at my last job which seemed severely underpaid, especially in Los Angeles. I would be fine with $85k but would definitely be more comfortable with around $92k. Does anyone have insight of what the best response of a salary range would be?

I don’t want to under ask but I don’t want to lose the opportunity by asking for too much.
