I am currently working in a department within education. Usually the department has several employees but on my campus (which is smaller) I am the entire department. When I first applied to the job my boss mentioned that I would likely be made manager as she is fulfilling the position but knows nothing about it. Since starting, another administrator has resigned and my boss has taken on the department head position to fill those shoes in addition to my department and another. I am coming up on my 1 year mark and would like to ask for a promotion. I will be asking for one of the three positions my boss is holding. Should I approaching my direct boss or our campus director (who has the authority to give the promotion)?
