Are you making the amount you deserve?

Sometimes, making more money is as simple of a manner as just asking for it. But asking your boss for a raise can be difficult to do, especially if you aren’t sure whether or not you have truly earned it.

Do You Deserve a Raise?

The first step is taking a look at your own work and determining whether or not you believe that you deserve a raise. It may be time to ask for a raise if:

  • It has been a significant amount of time since your last raise;
  • Your duties have increased;
  • You have been putting in more hours or/and working harder; or
  • Your employer is worried about losing you.

How to Ask for a Raise

The second step is being able to actually ask for the raise. When asking for a raise:

  • Time it right – waiting until the right time to ask for a raise is essential, and some company policies may even state that raises are only given out at a certain time of year;
  • Be specific in your ask – know exactly what you want and be straightforward in requesting it;
  • Prove you deserve – be prepared to highlight why you believe you deserve a raise.
