If you want a raise you should read this
If you are the person who is ambitious and, I guess, normal than you should get raise, or want to get it. But road to there can be very slippery and rough. And often result is fail. But that may not be the case if you look at this article.
To every working man and woman, raise is very important, by the result of study. By it every third worker in US looked for another job if he did not get raise in 12 moths. That say’s very much about it, and the importance of raise.
For people who don’t know how to ask for raise and do in with no danger to get their boss angry this next points can be very useful.
Why do you want a raise?
Be prepared, tell the reasons why do you want raise with arguments. Maybe they got lost in every day engagements and did not see it clear.
Choose the time to ask for it very carefully. Why? If company is going through rough times it is probably not the great moment to do it.
Don’t use colleague as excuse. That is for few reasons. One is coz all bonuses and paycheck may be secret in one company. In that way you would make a problem for someone, or betray someone’s trust. It is very pore planed if you use it like that. Best way, by me, is to use argument like “It’s average paycheck for that position” That would show you as not only interested in salary, that as someone who looked it up in company’s documents and procedures. That is plus.
Focus on a bigger picture. Money is not the only point that you can ask that is raise range. You can ask for less work hours, or days to work from home, education and courses for improvement, or many thing that can be in your interest.
Do not threaten you superiors. It is unprofessional, and may and probably will have some bad consequences. Even if you are ready to quit your job it your criteria are met, don’t tell them that.
Get ready to get No for an answer. Your boss will not like you asking for a raise. Ask him if he/she would consider it in few months if you would meet their criteria.
