I’m at a point where I need to increase my income. I know the best way is to find a new job but while I am in the process of doing so I want to ask my employer for a raise. Any tips on how I can present them with a plan and reason for increasing my pay?
I think the biggest thing to keep in mind when negotiating a raise is that your employer should only give you a raise if you deserve one. Therefore, you’ve gotta go into any kind of meeting with your boss with clear examples of your successes and what makes you deserving of that raise. Did you increase sales by x percent? Did you reduce costs by x percent? Bring some real statistics with you and your boss will be a whole lot more willing to give you more money.
