Be pre­pared

Los Angeles Times - - MARKETPLACE -

W hen seek­ing a raise or pro­mo­tion, come in armed and pre­pared to de­fend your­self with ev­i­dence and a proper re­quest. If you can’t list your ac­com­plish­ments and prove your value to your boss, she’s not likely to agree to give you more. Bot­tom line — be pre­pared with statis­tics about your field and ex­am­ples of your own ac­com­plish­ments. Ad­di­tion­ally, in­stead of just fo­cus­ing on and hon­ing the ar­gu­ment for why you re­ally de­serve this raise based on your work, don’t make it about per­sonal rea­sons. Go in with a slew of facts and fig­ures to sup­port your re­quest. Show off your ac­com­plish­ments, pull out mar­ket re­search. Re­ally daz­zle.
