I asked my boss if I could move after doing my job for 5 years and he said no he's not moving me up should I quit and find another job.
Ask why, get a clear cut answer and then decide what works best for you. If you are thinking about quitting,, make sure you have something else to fall back on.
basically he said I wasnt ready to move up and just basically like a put down
If you decide to quit make sure you have another job lined up first.
