Q. When I returned from the Easter holiday, I learned that my colleague’s title was upgraded and mine wasn’t. I asked the boss why; he said it was to keep job titles similar to those of our sister companies. I feel that because I come in 30-45 minutes early and stay at least 45-60 minutes late every day, that should count for something. My boss says it doesn’t. What do you think?
A. Don’t get caught up in job titles. Instead, assess whether you’re satisfied with your job, your career prospects and your pay. If you’re batting over .500, then feel lucky that your main gripe is your title. Also, don’t assume that putting in long hours automatically qualifies you for a promotion. Only tangible results count.
