You may remember me from my cooking school blog, and some accounts of my internship/current job at a racing track. I really like it there but it has become less of a challenge and also not enough money now that I am newly married and considering children and a house (or at least a better apartment) in the next few years. I know cooks as a rule don't tend to get paid much but I also know some cooks where I am working get paid more than I do--not sure how much more though. My plan has been to work there until March next year. That will make it a full year that I have worked in one place and my longest employment time to date. But I am so torn; I feel very fortunate where I am. Everyone is so nice and I am happy doing something I like to do. But I know I can't stay there forever. Would it be silly to ask for a raise, knowing I probably won't stay past March? Should I forget the raise and just work until March the way things are now? And ultimately, when it comes closer to March, how do I break my plan to my boss? Thanks.
