It’s my annual performance review today and I’m going to use it to try and make a case that the work that I am doing really falls under the next highest job category. I have 3-4 concrete examples of things that I have done or are projects I’m working on that are not part of the general guidelines for my level, but do appear (somewhat) on the next level. I am terrified.
Update: I did the thing. My direct boss is largely open to the idea, and has in the past (before I took the job) tried to get this position rated higher to begin with. But I now have to create a presentation for my boss’s boss to lay out my case. Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
