For this week’s BA Q&A, Mandi is joined by listener “Yacine”. Yacine was disappointed that she didn’t get a raise at her job and asks our favorite career coach on what she should do about it. Mandi advises her to have a transparent conversation with her manager about raises and what’s the company’s policy on them. Mandi also stresses the importance of learning how to articulate your value at your company.
