This is not a recruiter question specifically, but how do you approach your manager about a promotion?

Ask them if they have a moment and then just be honest about what you’ve accomplished, how you think you’re adding to the team/group/agency and why you think you’re ready for the promotion.

Have a meeting with your boss. Have several concrete example of accomplishments you’ve been responsible for in the past year. Act as though this another interview. Be polite and courteous

Ethical question: would you try to negotiate a raise in current job if you know you’re actively looking elsewhere? Context: had an incredibly challenging year with a huge project that completed successfully. Extremely complex tasks and long hours. Got an award for “disruption” but in summary, the role evolved and now I want to ask for market adjustment /as well as merit raise. I also hate what I do at the moment and can’t wait to leave, but might take months. Should I still ask for a raise?
