We totally understand your problem. You work, work and work, and never earn enough so that you could enjoy a proper holiday. That sucks. You need to do something about it, remember? We are the ones responsible for our lives! So perhaps, if you are not satisfied with your job, you should look for something else. Or before you try to do that, ask for a pay rise!
I know, many of you probably panic whenever somebody suggests this, however, if you do not try it, how can you know that it is not possible? What if the only thing that stands between you and a higher salary is asking for it? Well, think about it!
And let us tell you some things about how to talk to your boss when you want to get a pay rise. In case you eventually decie to go with it!
- Make a plan. You cannot simply knock on your boss’s door asking for a pay rise and not have any good argument in hand.
- You have to focus on your boss. That means, tell him how much your job is helping his job.
- Talk about how you save money of the company.
- Talk about the times when thinks turned out perfectly thanks to you!
Do not forget to keep it real! Good luck! 🙂
