How to justify the increase
- - knowledge of the labor market situation in your industry;
- - Arguments in favor of your efficiency for the company and the ability to increase it with a salary increase;
- - good relationship with the boss and well time to talk.
Crucial for the success of the planned conversation should be well chosen for this time. The boss should be in a good mood, it is desirable that your conversation is not interrupted colleagues distracting you or the chef on urgent business.
The ideal time for this is the afternoon: the morning routine has already been raked, and the manager has already eaten and is satisfied with life.
Even better, the day before you managed to successfully complete the project, to cope with the difficult task entrusted to you. Merits tend to be quickly forgotten, so take a moment.
A good source of arguments in its favor could be the study of the realities of the labor market in your industry. Even if you are not going to leave, will not be superfluous to respond to several vacancies for professionals of your level, attend interview, when and where invited.
If in the course of this reconnaissance will receive the offer with the best conditions, it will serve as an additional argument in the conversation, and reserve airfield in the event of a failed final.
During the conversation, try not to refer to personal circumstances: nobody cares about them except you. If we mention them, then at the very least, especially if the boss is already in the know.
Focus on what benefits you already bring to the company, how much more efficiently you can work when you achieve what you want, and do not forget to refer to the situation in the market.
If you represent value for the company, and your reasons are not based on no place, the probability of a mutually acceptable decision is very high.
