Course Description

Rather than being presented with a letter of resignation every employer would prefer to be presented with a well prepared and substantiated argument for a pay rise. Keeping an existing employee happy is also less of a hassle than conducting interviews and hiring a new one. While you don't want to say this outright, emphasizing a positive role in your company's evolution which helps assure the company's future success will definitely resonate with your boss.

Treat this as a business transaction, because it is. Although personal to you, it's an impersonal issue for the company, which simply wants your backside on their chair as soon as possible now, for as good a price as they can get you.

Asking for pay rise is another chance to sell yourself to them in the comfort zone of knowing you already have the job. Treat this like the business transaction it is and keep everything professional; you're not bragging or compromising your integrity by promoting what is valuable about yourself.

Recognize that a high percentage of companies expect renegotiation of salary and set their salaries lower than what they expect you to accept, on purpose. While this won't hold for all companies why accept the chance that you've been offered less based on this rationale? Give it a go!

Realize that those who ask get heard. The squeaky wheel is real, now and in any other workplace transaction. But to get what you want, you have to deserve it for good reasons!

The course is made up of 10 lectures, a number of quizzes, and gives you a bullet proof "Get Prepared Worksheet" to use when you make your request.

If you have asked for a pay rise before and been unsuccessful, or if you have never asked for pay rise and don't know the best way to go about it, then all the answers are here!
