I had the guts to ask my boss to increase my salary for next year and here’s what happened.
Every year, I get a 1% increase every 6-months. However, given the value that I know I bring to the team, I decided to make a bold move and ask for a 9% annual salary increase starting in January 2021.
I did this by coming to my boss with all of my previous accomplishments this year and what new projects and leadership initiatives I’d like to take on next year. I also researched salaries online AND talked to a few people in similar roles to determine the amount that I should ask for. The conversation went really well and this week, I received the okay that the company is willing to increase my pay in Q1, 2021!
