Asking for more money is a stressful and often awkward experience. Unfortunately, for the uninitiated, it could also be a potentially harmful one for your career if you say/do the wrong thing. If you’re not careful in how you approach your employer, you risk humiliating yourself, pointing out your flaws instead of your strengths, and even throwing co-workers under the bus unintentionally. Sure it’s important to say the right things, but before you figure out what those things are, it’s much easier to start with the list of things you SHOULDN’T say during this all-important negotiation.
Every boss, worker, and company is different. But when it comes to asking for a raise, there are some universal “no-nos” you have to avoid at all costs. Here are the nine most common.
There will come a point in your tenure with an employer when you realize that you deserve a raise. As with most salary negotiations, asking for a raise is often uncomfortable at the very least and intimidating at the very most. But getting the raise you deserve should not be such an anxiety-creating event, especially if you follow the strategies outlined in this article. In fact, to better help all workers, this article describes both short-term and long-term tips to ensuring that raise negotiations are professional — and minimally stressful.
Before we get to the tips, one element is critical to your success: timing. Timing refers to the company’s policies and procedures in terms of the amount of time between reviews and raises — and when it’s “acceptable” to ask for a raise. And timing refers to the company’s current financial situation as well as the general economic climate. And, finally, timing refers to where you are in terms of your work and major projects. Obviously, it makes sense to ask for a raise:
- within the normal parameters of company policy;
- when the company is in sound financial standing, and
- when you have just had a major success.
One other thing to remember. Generally speaking, if you are doing your job well, then your boss expects you to ask for a raise — and ideally is prepared to offer you one. However, doing a good job is no longer enough in many organizations. The strategies in this article are designed to prepare you better, reduce your anxiety, and help you achieve your raise and salary goals.
