Movers & Shakers How to Ask for A Raise One of the most difficult things for employees to do is ask for a raise. Many people avoid the topic and hope that they will be compensated for their work eventually, but in reality, the only way to increase your pay is to take action. Before you do that, make sure to prepare with these tips to help get you the raise you want: Have Your Magic Number: You need to go into the meeting knowing exactly what you want. Be prepared to negotiate, as you may have to shoot a little higher in order to settle on your original number. Do Your Research: Bring in competitive salary research for your position and responsibilities (including location and experience)—no one can deny facts! Bring In Your Accomplishments: Show that you have consistently accomplished your work and went above and beyond your duties by showcasing both quantita- tive and qualitative results. Suggest Goals: Demonstrate that you are confident in your ability to continue to grow and help the company succeed by bringing in suggesting specific new goals you plan to hit. Know Your Worth: Confidence is key. Believe that you deserve this raise and be sure to give off positive energy, as that will help your boss be certain that you are ready to make more and take on more. CAREER CORNER
