Negotiate A Raise

Negotiate A Raise

Asking for a raise can be nerve-wracking. You’ll need confidence, professionalism and an effective strategy when the time comes.

Before you ask for a raise, look online to learn what the average salary is for your position and experience level in your location. It’s essential to make sure that the increase you’re asking for is within the appropriate range.
Also, know how well your company is performing. Is business booming, or struggling? Recognizing if your employer is in a financial position to increase your salary will impact how much of a boost you request.

The best way to convince your boss you deserve a raise is to bring up your specific accomplishments that helped the company achieve its goals. Demonstrate, if possible, how you add value to your team, and, if you’ve been asked to take on additional responsibilities, be sure to point that out too.
