Ask for salary increase — not the most pleasant experience. Before heading for talks with the authorities, you should ask yourself a few questions about your work and about the limitations of your boss. The correct answers to these questions will help you to build a conversation and increase your chances to achieve what you want and deserve.
Have you talked with your boss about money before?
Request for the salary increase should not come as a shock to your Manager. Ideally should regularly talk with the boss about your future in the company.
Now is the right time to ask for a salary increase?
Think carefully before you schedule an appointment to speak with your boss about your salary.
The best time to request for the increase to three-four months to summarize your work for the year. Usually at this time are budgets.
To speak about salary increase with the boss makes sense when business is booming. It is hardly necessary to do so, if the company just passed a layoff or a few major customers broke a contract.
How long have you worked at the same place?
Usually ask for higher wages is not earlier than a year after beginning work in a particular position. Exceptions are possible if the nature of your work changed dramatically or your responsibilities go far beyond what you agreed, starting to work on this post.
Can you prove that you deserve a raise
It is better to provide very specific evidence: during a conversation with the boss you have to be specific numbers indicating what benefits you bring to the company.
That can think or feel your head during a conversation?
It is important not to dwell on my own anxiety, and to see the situation from the point of view of your boss. Perhaps you should invite a friend and act out the conversation with Director roles, taking the role of chief. You’ll feel the aggression, the desire to defend, the annoyance towards the person who is ready to interview?
Realizing the possible feelings of a head, you will be able to make your strategy in the negotiations more effective.
