8 Suggestions To Enable You To Get That Raise 8 Tips To Enable You To Get That Raise

Nobody likes going in to ask the boss for a raise http://www.basketballknicksshop.com/Cheap-Frank-Ntilikina-Knicks-Jersey/ , but everybody likes getting one! Unfortunately, occasionally the only method to get the boss to hike your pay would be to go in and ask. This could be a bit stressful and awkward, but here's 8 tips you can use to make asking easier and better your chances of getting that well deserved pay increase.

1. Be Prepared. You cannot just burst into your bosses office demanding a raise - you need a plan of action. List all the projects you have completed since your last pay increase. Make note of how successful they have been and how they've elevated productivity or saved the company money. If you've accrued any new job skills make a list of these as well. Also write down any special skills or knowledge you bring to the job. Find out what the typical raise or salary is for somebody in your position. Go in ready with the facts and it will likely be hard for your boss to argue with you!

2. Always ask for more than you really want. It is the bosses first instinct to negotiate and she or he will inevitable attempt to talk you down. By asking for a bit more than what you really want then you might finish up getting what you really wanted in the first place! If they say yes at your first price then you've got a bonus!

3. Anticipate to negotiate. You may want to attempt other ways of getting a raise too, like additional vacation time, employee perks or more time off. All of these may be just as good (if not better!) than an actual amount of money.

4. Select your time wisely. Avoid selecting a Monday or Friday because that's typically when bosses are at their busiest. Based on research http://www.basketballknicksshop.com/Cheap-Courtney-Lee-Knicks-Jersey/ , people are most receptive after lunch on Tuesday or Wednesday. At any rate, attempt to choose a time when your boss will have a few spare minutes and will not be distracted with other issues. If you are afraid of being interrupted during your request, ask to speak to your supervisor for a few minutes after hours.

5. Do not get upset or yell if your boss objects to your raise at first. After all, you're being paid to do a particular job, and now you're asking for more money to do exactly the same job. Be professional and polite all the time http://www.basketballknicksshop.com/Cheap-Charles-Oakley-Knicks-Jersey/ , and listen more than demand. Chances are, if your supervisor doesn't award you a raise, they may hint at what else might be done to earn it. If they do not, don't be afraid to ask what actions would be necessary to "prove yourself".

6. Don't threaten to quit in the event you do not get what you want. He might just call your bluff and allow you to go!

7. Be confident and get straight to the point. No beating about the bush. Just come right out and state your facts and factors you think you deserve a raise. If you have "Thank You" notes from customers or letters from the company praising you for a job well done, bring those to your meeting as well http://www.basketballknicksshop.com/Cheap-Carmelo-Anthony-Knicks-Jersey/ , as they'll assist to cement your request and remind your supervisor of your role inside the business and its progress.

8. Don't compare your self to coworkers or speak about them negatively. This may only make you look bad in the bosses eyes.

Now, the next time you think you deserve a raise you can gather your facts and go in there confidently and professionally and ask for what you deserve. In this post I will chronicle many of the reasons why a typical homeowner (HO) should not attempt to act as their own General Contractor (GC), especially for projects that entail hiring many different trades (like a room addition). The issues and potential pitfalls are numerous but the main topics are: time spent managing the project, construction knowledge, first time one time subcontractor pricing http://www.basketballknicksshop.com/Cheap-Bernard-King-Knicks-Jersey/ , loose estimates causing cost overruns and more. Acting as a GC is way more than just calling in different trades, getting pricing and selecting someone to perform work. Even equipped with a full set of architectural drawings, the HO neither understands nor appreciates just how overmatched they are in trying to produce their project and either their budget or the project or both will suffer the consequences.

Time Spent:

Once a HO has gone through the laborious process of interviewing multiple subcontractors for each phase and signs contracts the job is not over, it has only just begun. HO’s and lower priced GC’s who can’t afford to spend time on their jobs or pay a project manager or don’t really care about building efficiently or looking after the small details will let the subcontractors do their job however they see fit. This is a “HUGE” mistake with countless ramifications, most of which will cost more money and impact the end product of the job.

A GC http://www.basketballknicksshop.com/Cheap-Anthony-Mason-Knicks-Jersey/ , or at least a good one, will be on site daily making decisions as it pertains to how all the different trades execute their phase. The devil is in the details as we all know, the same applies for construction, the details on trade execution is what makes a job come in on budget, what makes one job look great and another look shoddy.

Construction Knowledge:

Does the framer know how much space to leave between the door opening & the wall so that the 3 ½” casings will fit? Does the flooring guy know where to stop the flooring where the tile in the kitchen & the kitchen cabinet meet? Did the plumber run a vent line where the recessed vanity is supposed to go into the wall? Who runs the thermostat line http://www.basketballknicksshop.com/Cheap-Allan-Houston-Knicks-Jersey/ , the plumber who is doing the heat or the HVAC guy or the electrician? I think you can see where this is going, I could type to my fingers bled and I would only scratch the surface. If a HO thinks a sub is going connect these dots for them, they will be sadly mistaken and the end product will suffer severly or they will suffer countless additional costs and delay.
