Duhn Duhn Duhnnnn…..I had my meeting with my boss and it went well and the conversation was brief. He informed me of something I did not know which is, when you’re at a certain payscale within your job level or grade level you reach a max of what you can receive as a raise. In my case, the percentage I received had no reflection on my actual performance but rather the higher you are on the PayScale of your job level, the less you are able to receive before you need to receive a promotion to bump to the next level. So my next challenge is spending the rest of this year working to receive a promotion.
This is the first time I’ve ever taken my goals seriously. But I plan to start tracking my tasks and the various initiatives I plan to complete/spearhead to provide supporting argument for my next performance review. Wish me Luck!
