Yes, but Some time what happen, that you are very much satisfied with your current position in the company, & your emoluments makes you dissatisfied only. In that case you dont wanna leave the present company but seeking good salary revision within it & a fobia of stability & satisfaction for change makes you begger to your employer.
A friendly advice from my side.
You all seem to be quite young and having some years of experience in HR. Mail me your resume (with detailed description about your experience) at and I'll revert to you. Also scribble down your family details and your readiness to relocate.
I remember one thing which my professional and highly ethical boss use to say ' salary is commanded not demanded' and 'beggers are not choosers'. it may seem little harsh but its true. I would advise you to make your boss dependent on you, develop skills which your boss or organisation value. be thankful to your boss that he has given you an opportunity to you. believe me ..I have done it myself. I never demanded but assumed all responsibilities of dept. I have left job but my previous bosses miss me for my work.
wish you all the best....
