Learn how to get paid what you're worth.
When I researched the pay scale for my role within the company I work for (after working for them for more than 20 years), I found out I was being paid nearly $100,000 a year less than I could have been, simply because I had never asked for a raise!
I know I'm not being paid market rate for what I do but I have no idea how to ask for more money without seeming pushy.
I thought my boss would realize what a great job I was doing but I always seem to be overlooked when it comes to getting a pay raise.
The fact is, you need to ask.
PayScale's survey of over 160,000 workers found that a little over a third of employees had ever asked for more money in their current role. However, if they did ask, 70% successfully negotiated more money. That makes it obvious that:
It is a very good idea to ask for a raise
Not asking can leave a huge amount of money on the table.
The overwhelming reason is that they don’t know how to. They’re uncomfortable with the idea of talking about money, they’re worried it might affect their relationship with their boss and they don’t know where to start.
If they get the approach wrong (as so many people do), it may well end up having a detrimental effect on their job.
It's also not uncommon for employees to believe that if their boss thought they deserved more money for the job they're doing, they would simply offer it to them. When nothing is forthcoming, it can feel like their boss doesn't believe their performance warrants more than they're already being paid.
If you think your performance justifies a pay increase, or you think you’re being paid less than you’re worth for what you do, this is the course for you.
