I’ve been at my company for three years now and I haven’t had a single promotion. While others who have been hired after me have been promoted before me. I make $55k/yr but in these times I need to make around at least $80k. What are some things I can do to be recognized or should I start looking for another job?

Is your company doing regular performance reviews and talking about how you can grow what steps you need to take, allowing you to take on more responsibilities? If theryre not they might not even have a promotion system in place and you may be waiting for nothing.

I always say if your company wont promote you promote yourself. I would start looking elsewhere, even if you really dont want to leave your company having other offers in hand gives you leverage to ask for your company to promote you or give you a raise quicker and if they dont…. then you have another offer.


We do yearly performance reviews but they really don’t effect anything. Also, we do have a list of Hr based responsibilities where we list what we’re most to least interested in doing. But all the areas that I’ve expressed interest in doing they’ve never placed those responsibilities on me. Instead they’ve placed me in my other least interested responsibilities. I have started looking else where but I’m a little lost in the progression of the HRSS career path.

Has your role changed during that time? Have your responsibilities changed or increased? Are you overachieving on goals? Those could be some factors that are considered for promotion. Unfortunately tenure would be a minimal consideration.

My role has not changed but my responsibility has increased and I do my best to excel in all areas that I oversee.
