How to Ask for a Raise: The Ultimate Guide To Get What You’re Worth

Are you being underpaid and want to make more money? The quickest way to a better salary is to ask for a raise.

You’ll need to show your boss your worth to the company and how they would benefit from giving you  a raise.

Prepping beforehand will go a long way in getting a salary increase.

Prepare  Ahead of Time

Brainstorm Your Value and Accomplishments

Think of concrete examples showcasing your talent and how the company has benefitted from your employment.

Look at what job duties were listed for your role when you first started working. Has your company added more responsibilities but not increased your pay?

Take Inventory of  Your Job Duties

A pivotal element to landing a pay raise is knowing the pay scale of your current job. You must know your worth to prevent getting underpaid.

Researching  Pay Scale

A good starting point is asking for a 10% increase from your current salary. Of course, you may not get the same salary increase you request, but even a 5% raise would be significant.

Raise Amount

Go over what you plan to say to your boss with someone else or out loud to yourself.
