Negotiate your pay — Business Management Daily: Free Reports on Human Resources, Employment Law, Office Management, Office Communication, Office Technology and Small Business Tax Business Management Daily
If you want a raise, ask yourself one question: Am I paid the market value for my work? If you answer no, then request a higher salary. Reason: By convincing your boss you aren’t earning the market rate—and providing evidence—you’ll make her realize that replacing you would mean hiking the position’s salary in any case. If you are paid market value, propose that your performance merits a bonus.
