You’re an experienced IT project manager or application developer. You’ve been with your employer for some years now, and you know that your efforts have contributed significantly to your company’s revenue. So it’s only logical to think it’s time to reassess your salary. But if you’ve never negotiated a raise before, you might feel a bit apprehensive about broaching the subject with your supervisor.
Despite the incredibly low employment rate, you’re not alone: Hannah Morgan states in her U.S. News Money article titled “How to Ask for a Raise—and actually get it” that nearly 60 percent of all workers don’t ask their employers for a raise. In fact, only 40 percent of men and 26 percent of women feel comfortable discussing a salary increase. But the truth of the matter is that if you don’t initiate the conversation, your employer probably won’t, either. In short, it’s up to you to take action. Follow these five steps to effectively negotiate a raise.
Asking for a raise is a sensitive matter that can be intimidating at first. But if you do your research and prepare properly, you can greatly enhance your chances of your employer increasing your salary.
