Just finished law school as a second career. I graduated Valedictorian & Summa Cum Laude. My job offers pay much less than my current role as an IT Director. What is a realistic salary I should ask?

Hi everyone! Can anyone tell me what you make as a typical banquet/events manager for salary or per hour? I’ve worked for Marriott/Bonvoy at the Ritz and for the Curio Collection with Hilton as a bartender/server/banquets captain.

I’ve had two new monthly reports shoved on to my plate since January. I was promised a promotion in November yet I have yet to receive it or a salary increase. The excuse is I have to wait until after a contract is awarded. However, I’ve noticed several of my colleagues have received promotions. Also, merit increases will be dispersed next month. I want a merit increase and a promotion increase. Do you think I’ll get both increases?
What would you do in my situation?

The idea presented itself a few months ago when I was recruited by an agency slightly larger than my own. I made to the top three but was not selected for the position. Any leads advice welcomed!

I would love all opinions: My current base is 120k (I never budget with bonus to be safe). Total debt is $650 per month for student loans. I’m currently paying 1k for rent but hate the place.
