Recently my manager told me she had to submit job titles based on descriptions that were given to her by HR. This is because our company is going through a salary audit. She told me that because I don't have a bachelors degree, I am being demoted to a Junior Technical Writer.

I have been working at my current job for nearly four years. Three and a half of those years I have had the title of Technical Writer. I have the most seniority of anyone in my department. I have been seeking a degree for some time and I am a junior, but being employed full-time does not allow me to take as many classes as I would like.

I am wondering if anyone out there has had a similar experience. Because of this title change I will not be getting the adjustment that everyone else will receive.
