|What To Do If You're Offered A Promotion Without A Raise by ValourDigest(m): 11:25am On Feb 23|
Imagine a situation where you’ve been working yourself to the bone just to get a promotion. You’ve done everything you can, delivered on the important metrics and simply excelled at your job for the last couple of months. Eventually, your boss calls you in for that life-changing conversation. You’re excited to take on the role, but s/he then says it will be a promotion without a raise.
Even we can understand how heartbreaking you must feel if that ever happens to you. Sadly, it is quite common in today’s world. However, it doesn’t have to spell doom for your career. Here’s what you should do if you’re offered a promotion without a raise.
Set a specific timeline to revisit the conversation
Without a doubt, getting promoted is very good for your career, and it can pull in more positive views on your resume. As such, you shouldn’t readily turn a promotion down simply because they’re not offering you money. However, what you can do is set a specific time to get back to the possibility of a raise. It could be three months, six months, or even a year, depending on how long you’re comfortable with it. But make sure that you set a specific time so that you don’t give the impression that you’ll always be fine with the questionable salary.
