Career path, promotion and Asking for a reference about a boss

brianarani's profile thumbnail
Do you know where you would like to go in your career? Do you like working with your current boss? You said he's open to a proposal from you, so I wonder if you want to speak with him first and get his reaction and feedback?The fact that this other manager was unkind to you already seems like a red flag - would you really want to work for him even if it meant progressing on your career path? And perhaps it's not an either/or - you could also consider looking at opportunities outside of this company.
Briana:Thanks for your reply, you got me a new perspective. I really enjoy working with my actual boss and I am presenting him a proposal to build my own team but he's been candid with me about the uncertainty of my promotion due to lack of funding.
