What’s one thing to consider when asking for a raise? To get the money you deserve, you have to ask for it and explain why you deserve it. In a bad economy, wondering “When is the best time to ask for a raise?” is sort of like asking “When is the best time to buy a house?” The answer is, “Whenever you need a house!” So if you feel you need (and deserve) a raise, now is the best time.

โœ”๏ธ Come Into The Meeting Well-Prepared

Asking for a raise and salary negotiations are not something to be taken lightly! With every negotiation you initially complete with a new company, the rest of your salary increases are based directly on that number in most cases. You need to make sure it’s a salary that’s fair and worthy of the time you are sacrificing away from your family to go to a company and gift them 40+ hours each week.

Here are 5 key takeaways:

  1. Identify your range, considerations of the proper range, and remember the lowest number is typically what recruiters remember.

  2. Research the role, industry, and geographical pay rates on Glassdoor or Salary.

  3. Figure out your Unique Selling Proposition (USP) and value offerings that relate to the targeted role and re-emphasize this at the negotiation table.

  4. Evaluate reasons to negotiate your salary (education, experience, skills, cost of living, multiple offers, etc.).

  5. Discover ways to increase your perceived worth.
