7 Crazy Tips To Ask For Raise In Salary
Here are a few more points which can help you Ask For It.
Have a Polite Initiative
Going to your boss and asking for a salary raise with an aggressive manner is the last thing you want to do, So start the conversation politely.
Explain yourself CLEARLY. Unclear vision is a turnoff.
DO NOT WASTE ANYONE’S TIME.
Do Not Threaten
Though it might seem easy to get a new job where you can get more money, threatening is not something for which you went in there, let your boss think about it in his/her own way.
Be Determined To Get What You Want
Be determined but not overconfident, do not underestimate a NO for an answer but be determined to get a YES.
Although don’t end the conversation about the raise without an assured YES.
Don’t Let Other Aspects Overpower Your Conversation
Be clear that why do you want a raise, and why do you deserve the raise, don’t let stupid reasons and excuses overpower the conversation, not even in jokes.
Don’t compare your salary with your fellow colleagues, have your own countenance.
Accept What Comes Your Way
Whether it may seem that your boss is taking the whole conversation the other way around be patient and try to understand what he has to offer, and try to accept the way he thinks, this way they have an assurance that you’re not greedy and stubborn when it comes to money.
Don’t Ask For Too Much At A Time
Don’t be greedy asking for a lot, negotiate it in a manner that’s acceptable in your office environment, ask for an amount that you really need, in alignment to what they could grant you. Don’t go way too above of your line thinking that if this is denied you will lower it.
Keep it real, keep it simple.
Hear it out what your boss has to offer.
If you don’t agree with it, have a compassionate explanation on it. Too many counterpoints will only take you towards an ugly spat.
It’s a negotiation with your boss and not in a market.
Your boss probably has 10 more employees that will ask for raise at the same time as you, be better than everyone else asking for it.
The less you come out greedy the more your boss will know how genuinely you deserve a raise.
Doesn’t matter what urge you feel to complete your side and get the Damn raise, have the patience to hear the other side too, don’t cling to it, don’t creep your boss out to think that all you care about is your raise and you’re greedy.
Now, your boss may ask you to wait for a day or two for him to think or what not, don’t cling if it goes this way. Wait until he gives you the answer, don’t keep on asking and leave an unpleasant impression.
Wait until the day arrives and until the correct moment of the conversation arrives.
So concluding this hesitation is normal but be confident enough to validate yourself in front of a higher authority.
And I hope you get the salary you deserve. And the raise you deserve.
