Please bear in mind that it is not wrong to ask for a raise. It is very normal for our employers. They know that it is normal for employees to ask for a raise, and it is our right to do so.
Remember to give your boss the details of why you deserve to get a raise. Don’t talk about why you want more money.
You have to assess your performance instead of just asking for a raise because you want to have it.
You have to factor in how your company handles raises with their employees. They have policies on how and when to give salary increases.
Think about what your position is within the company? Did you get extra responsibilities over the past year? If your research shows that your market value is too low, talk to your boss!
Think about how they can react to certain questions, counter your argument, and how the personal relationship with that person is.
When your boss only wants to give you a $200 salary raise, that’s okay. You have the opportunity now to ask for extra holidays or perks like working from home.
Your salary will increase only if you ask for a higher salary. Ask for a sit-down to demonstrate your enthusiasm for a merit increase.
