Is there a career change on your horizon?

Do you feel undervalued in your current job? Either in pay or position? 

Are you having these kinds of questions?

  • How do I ask for a raise or promotion?

  • What’s the process?

  • Is it just going to happen?

  • Do I just need to ask?

  • How much should I ask for?

You’re not alone. In fact, only half of U.S. workers ask for a raise from their employer. And of those that ask, less than half of them actually receive the raise they request?

  • It’s not as simple as asking. But you have to ask.

  • It’s not as simple as being great at your job. But you have to be great.

  • It’s not enough to make a list of your accomplishments. But you have to make a list.

Successfully asking for and receiving a raise or promotion is an art and a science. 

It takes work in order to know what matters to your boss, how to prove your value, and how to make the case for why your raise or promotion is warranted. But it takes a mindset and a certain approach to really make a compelling case, and then follow through from start to finish

Speaking frequently on all things content, digital, viral and creative, Jon has run his own advertising and design firm, served in full time youth ministry, and worked marketing for a regulatory consulting firm and legal practice dedicated to helping clients succeed in FDA regulation, approvals, labeling and inspections.
