I'm almost about a year and a half into my job, and I can't help but wonder where I'm going to go next. The only other option to go up in this job is supervisor, but nobody really wants to take that position.The director hinted that they might make a special position just for me and what I do, but I realize that whatever it is probably won't pay that well. That's the problem with working for this non-profit. I get a comparatively lower paycheck than others, but I get to do my dream of helping and working with people on a daily one-to-one basis. After more than a year of this, I can actually see the results of my intervention.

So the question is.... what next? Isn't that always the question?

I feel like if they're willing to create a new job for you, you have some leverage to bargain for better pay. Although they might also be doing that so they Don't have to pay you more. :\ I mean, either way, you have evidence that you made a difference, so regardless of whether you decide to stay or go, you have like, proof that you and your work matter.

Sometimes the question is also to be or not to be. skull emoji

Yeah you're right, I think I do have a case for myself if it comes to it.

You know it's funny, they actually just passed this yesterday for New York State. It gives more money for people with jobs like mine.

This should actually help a lot. I might just stick around longer if the salary is livable enough, new position or not.
