Last year during my amazing performance review, my boss said he submitted my name to be promoted to a higher officer position but he stated that he missed the cutoff so I’d have to wait until the next round of promotions. The year before that, he said that during the year, he was going to change my job title to a grade higher which never happened either.
So after my amazing performance review this year, a few days later, we received an email about officer promotions. Of course my name was not included for a promotion. So I forwarded the email and simply said I was told my name was submitted for an officer promotion and seeing that I didn’t get it, could he explain why and provide insight into how to improve.
He has not responded back to me although he has sent plenty of emails since and has responded to another email of mine. (It has been three business days and the weekend so 5 days total I have not received a response). The only thing I can think of is he is trying to lead me on by thinking if I’m promised these things, I’ll continue doing an amazing job. What are your thoughts?
