kgbemployee206075dYou can at least have a look around, maybe go to some interviews. No one is forcing you to leave but of something quantifiably better comes along then that's all for the better.
You can also have a friendly chat with your manager and maybe discuss a promotion or a pay rise, not sure which one you want more. Don't be pushy about it.
They way you describe the situation, you have enough experience to advance.
I'm not familiar with the cost of living in your area, not am I familiar with the market so I can't really say about the pay, if it's appropriate or not. Maybe someone else can enlighten you on that subject.
Santaclauze392875dDepending on responsibility and skills you can ask for a rise every 3 to 6 month.
MrCSharp483575dJust talk to your boss.
Wack652675dDo some research about the pay in your field. With that go to your boss to disquss your salary. Like tell them, that you're happy with your work, but according to your research you feel underpaid and if they see any oportunity to reach a market level salary. If not, jobhunt it is.
zteater34174dTalk to your boss, but know what you're worth so you can speak competently about what you should be compensated. 60k seems low after 3 years - that is starting salary for college grads on East coast.
Consider getting a job offer or two lined up and ask your employer to meet or exceed. But be prepared to walk if they won't.
This will be a good test of your standing at the company. If they truly value you (based on the increased workload) they will fight to keep you. If they're just taking advantage of you (how much work can we dump on this guy) they won't put up much fight or will try to manipulate you into staying at current rate (but we took a risk and hired you when no else would, blah blah).
