Section 1: Planning the Right Way to Ask for and Get a Pay Raise

Homework: make the case as to why you would give yourself a raise.

Please Introduce Yourself


Make the case that now is the best time to ask for a raise.

Are your company's profits up?

Revenues up?

Stock price up?

Have there been any layoffs lately?



Ask your boss for an appointment to discuss your future in the organization.

Section 2: This is How You Ask for a Raise


List the following:

1. What you like about your organization.

2. Your proudest accomplishment at the organization.

3. What you like about the peopel in your industry.



Create a one-page memo listing 10 very speciific things you want to do in the next year in your job to increase efficiency and productivity.


Remind yourself of the following: don't whine, don't talk about my needs, don't complain, don't show doubt, don't waver.


How much more money are you going to ask for? Be specific, in terms of percentages and yearly amount.


Do you have any competing job offers? If not, why not? Are you networking with industry players and executive recruiters in your industry?



This is the most important part of the course. Use a video camera on your cell phone, tablet or computer and practice a mock meeting with your boss. Ask your substitute boss (use a friend, colleague or family member stand-in) for a raise using all of the above steps. Review the video. Repeat the process until you are happy with how you look and sound on video when asking for a raise.

Congratulations! You are ready to ask for a raise and that much closer to gettign one.
