say it with me now.
I Deserve A Raise!
document every detail you have executed to deserve the raise.
examples include observable achievements that cannot be disputed.
Did you save the company money?
make sure youv’e printed out that glossy 8 x 11
confirming such a claim and it’s in their bosses hands.
ask for more than you deserve
(practice in a mirror, at the top of a hill, to your gf/bf, dog, cat, rat)
If you give well documented reasons why you are valuable to the company
you may just succeed.
