My startup is rapidly growing. As a 1-woman marketing department, how do I ask for a promotion?
June 22,2018 at 12:20AM UTC
I manage marketing/PR/international business development for a growing tech startup at our global headquarters. I feel I'm ready for more responsibility on top of what I've taken on -- the many hats I wear I initiated as part of a career goal of building experience in international business development.
The reason I haven't asked for a raise/promotion is 1) I haven't been at the company for a full year yet (though I'm more a "veteran" than the many newer employees and have proven my value to the company) and 2) our company organizational structure is not well defined. My direct manager is the CEO. Therefore, if I ask for a promotion they'd basically be creating a new position and/or just changing my job title and giving me further responsibilities. This is definitely what I want along with a pay bump, but not sure how to go about asking. My boss is (understandably) very busy and it's hard to get his attention, so my time with him first goes to my actual work as priority.
I did create a visual presentation of sorts that shows how my marketing campaigns have driven business growth, which I may use in the actual asking. However, I'm unsure on whether to ask for a specific salary amount.

I don't know why, but I have been feeling hesitant about publishing a portfolio.
I just feel so scared in posting all of my accomplishments online where anyone can see. I've tried multiple times creating a career portfolio and I always abandon it midway. I also feel like I don't have enough accomplishments I can brag about. Any advice?

I am not quite sure what to put this in the comments.
But at my work, they pay the males more than they pay the females, even if the females have degrees. I have three degrees. The two men that I work with get more then I do. The one that just got hired gets $2 more an hour then I do & has no experience or degrees, the other one has been there one month longer then me & is handsome & never even finished school with a very shady past & gets $3 more an hour then I do. I have also worked in this industry for over 25 years. I’m very upset about this & have already approached management about it twice. Any suggestions?

I ran across this article on salary negotiation.
The tips come from an Indiana University professor of business law and management. I thought I would share since I've seen posts in the past asking how to negotiate.

I have been working for a company for over 7 years.
I'm a valued worker and am excellent at what I do. I am an accounts manager and I spend a lot of time working with customers and ensuring the accounts of sales projects are correct and in scope of their contracts. However, our workplace is toxic. The salesMEN are very demanding and demeaning of their coworkers. They are non-communicative, demanding, and rude. The boss seems to be more interested in money from sales than the moral of the overall workers. I have had confrontations with a couple of these salesmen as I try to provide support to them. My boss just told me he wants me to work from home because they feel I'm am difficult to work with. I am concerned about not being able to fully complete my job tasks now as I am isolated from my co-workers. Even though me boss has provided me with computers, dual monitors, phone and a printer at my home, it feels like I'm being pushed out.
