Before you approach your boss about a raise or promotion, do your homework. Know what others are paid in similar positions throughout the market. Know what you’re worth and how to communicate your value. Be prepared to articulate the specific value you bring. Think about your ‘work wins‘ and make sure you can quantify your personal results. It can often be helpful to work with a career coach on a specific talk track for salary negotiations.
